How to Play the Official Lottery

The Louisiana Lottery drawing is conducted at the Louisiana Lottery headquarters in downtown Baton Rouge. There are motion detectors and alarms throughout the drawing room, which is videotaped and requires a dual key system and a password given by the legislative auditor. The drawing takes place with two secure automated drawing machines. The lottery’s prize pool covers every combination of three or four numbers. The money raised from the lottery’s drawing is then deposited into the Prize Pool.

While it is unlikely that the first lottery took place in England until 1446, it is likely that lottery fever has been sweeping the country. In the United States, the Powerball lottery jackpot topped $1.5 billion recently. However, lottery fever is as old as the game itself. While there are many modern day lottery games, the concept of a state lottery goes back to ancient civilizations. In ancient China, the Han dynasty used the proceeds of the lottery to build the Great Wall and the Elizabethan Age saw the game used to fund government projects.
