In a surprise turn, the Health Lottery has waded into the debate, and has suggested they think the amount given the Good Causes should actually be reduced. Do you agree? [Continue reading...]

The lotto and lotteries have been around for much longer than computers. In fact they date back to 205 BC. The oldest records of lotto or lotteries are Keno slips from the Chinese Han Dynasty. The Romans would also play a type of lottery where guests at parties would receive a ticket, and prizes would be given for corresponding numbers. The prizes would often consist of fancy goods and every ticket holder would be assured of winning a prize, however, this type of lottery was little more than rich noblemen displaying their wealth. The lotteries today offer massive, life-changing jackpots and are played by millions of players online across the globe.
The first winner of the Grand National was appropriately named “Lottery” with the actual word “lottery” originating from the Dutch word loterij, which itself originates from the Dutch noun lot meaning fate. The lotto or lotteries certainly are a game of chance with some lotteries offer bigger jackpots but less chances of getting a win and other lotteries having smaller top prizes but your chances of winning a prize are much greater.
