Lotteries have been around for a good chunk of recorded human history, with the proceeds of early lotteries believed to have helped fund the building of many historic landmarks such as the Great Wall.

During the reign of the Roman Empire, the first known European lotteries were held, although they were mainly used for amusement and were created to fund specific projects.

In the 1400s lotteries were used to help fund fortifications and to help the poor in what is now The Netherlands, Italy, Belgium and Luxembourg.

In American history, lotteries have been used to help establish settlements, build roads, churches, infrastructure and even Princeton and Columbia Universities!

The model of using lotteries to fund projects has been used commonly ever since, with many modern lotteries used to fund various community projects today.
