Lottery is a tax on the poor and is a form of gambling. It dates back to the Han Dynasty in China, which was 205-187 BC. The Book of Songs refers to this game as “drawing wood or lots.” This article will discuss the history of the lottery and its role in our society.
It is played by buying a ticket
Lottery is a game in which you buy a ticket and the numbers on the back match up with the winning combinations on the front. The numbers are often hidden behind a perforated paper tab that must be broken open in order to reveal them. If you purchase a pull-tab ticket, you are able to play the lottery for as little as $1. However, the payoffs are small.
