For this Loto draw on Wednesday August 30, the FDJ is planning a jackpot of 10 million euros! Lotto is one of the most popular lottery games in France, but where do these games actually come from? The earliest traces of lottery games can be found in China, where “Keno” is said to have been invented over 2000 years ago. At the time, it was used to finance government projects, including the construction of the Great Wall of China. Meanwhile, in ancient Rome, the Romans had their own forms of lottery games, often used to distribute valuable goods to citizens. These games were known as “tesserae” and were considered a popular form of entertainment. Lottery games made a comeback in Europe during the Renaissance. In the 15th century, Italy introduced a version called “Lo Giuoco del Lotto D’Italia,” which still exists today as “Loto.” This game helped fund many public projects in Italy at that time.
Over the centuries, lottery games have evolved to become more sophisticated and regulated. In the 17th century, England saw the emergence of the first public lottery, used to raise funds for the construction of infrastructure such as roads and bridges. In the United States, lotteries played a crucial role in funding settlement, education and infrastructure projects in the 18th century. The following century, however, many lotteries were banned due to concerns of corruption and fraud. Nowadays, lotteries have become a global phenomenon. They are regulated and supervised to ensure their fairness. Revenue generated from lottery ticket sales often funds public causes such as education, health, and other social programs.
