During the Middle Ages, lotteries were a way for governments to raise money for wars and other important projects. At its most basic, a lottery is a raffle, where a group of people buys tickets together and hopes to win a prize. Generally, the winner will receive a certain sum of money, which is then deposited in a common bank account. There are a number of lotteries across the United States.
Online lotteries are not as popular as online casinos, but several states are attempting to legalize them. In the US, Pennsylvania, Massachusetts, New Jersey, Maryland, and Rhode Island have passed online lottery bills and are in the process of launching online lotteries. The Michigan Lottery launched online sales in January 2016, and has already set all-time sales records. In March 2016, the lottery’s online sales topped $8 million a week.
