Lotteries are a lot more ancient than we might think! But lotteries have evolved a lot since they were first introduced! Let’s take a trip through history to uncover the origins of America’s most popular source of entertainment: The lottery!
There are various forms of lotteries mentioned in the Bible, the Quran, Greek mythology, ancient Japanese, Chinese, and Indian histories. The Romans used lottery games to predict the future, reward their loyal followers, and distribute gifts at parties. They used to reward job positions or property by lottery draws throughout history.
