History of lottery is rich and varied. The first recorded lotteries were held in the Roman Empire. These were intended primarily for amusement at dinner parties. Each guest was given a ticket. The prizes were usually fancy dinnerware or other items of value. Thus, each ticket holder was assured of winning something. In addition, lottery tickets were distributed during Saturnalian revels by wealthy noblemen. The earliest recorded lottery is the one organized by Emperor Augustus of Rome. The money raised from this game went to repairs in the City of Rome.
