Lotteries have long been a popular way to raise money for public projects. In the 17th century, they were especially popular in the Netherlands where they were used to help the poor and to raise money for various public purposes. People quickly became accustomed to the system and many regarded it as a relatively painless taxation method. Today, the oldest continuously operating lottery is the Staatsloterij in the Netherlands. The word lottery comes from the Dutch noun “lot”, meaning “fate.”
Lottery records date as far back as 205 BC. During the Han Dynasty, lottery sales helped finance important government projects, such as the Great Wall of China. The Roman Empire also saw its fair share of lotteries, which were often held at dinner parties and served as entertainment. Emperor Augustus is credited with organizing the first commercial lottery, which was meant to raise money for repairs to the City of Rome.
