The history of the lottery

The first recorded lotteries, where people pay for a ticket to select a set of numbers and win prizes, were held in the Low Countries in the 15th century. These were designed to raise funds for town fortifications and to help the poor.

In addition to the number of numbers and the way they are drawn, most lottery games have a fixed prize structure that is established before the tickets are sold. This can be either a lump sum of cash or an annual payment over several years, depending on the type of lottery.
