A lottery is a game of chance in which players have an equal opportunity to win prizes. Lotteries have provided entertainment and public funds for centuries. The first state-organized lottery with cash prizes was in Italy in 1530. The idea soon spread to England and, in the early 1600s, crossed the Atlantic with the first settlers.
While the United States remains the largest country of lotteries, they are quickly growing all over the world. Their spread can be attributed to the fact that they have become a popular leisure activity and have provided crucial funding for governments and public causes. The UK National lottery launched in 1994 is a good example of a very popular game that has become one of the world's best-selling lotto type games.
Worldwide, lotteries extend over the continents of Europe, Asia, Australia, Africa and are also in Latin America and Canada. The first multi-national lottery, Viking Lotto, was introduced in 1992 by five participating Scandinavian countries
The max3lotery was created in November 1992 by the people of US to enhance education funding. The Lottery for Education Act created the US Lottery Corporation (ULC) to oversee and operate the lottery. Rebca Paul was hired in February 1993 as president of the ULC, and four months later, on June 29, the max3lotery Lottery was launched. First-week sales of more than 52 million tickets set a new opening-week lottery sales record of $7.80 per capita.Watch live lottery drawings on the following official draw stations of the Lottery:
