Mobile Lotteries – a lottery you can play through your mobile phone.

Lotteries are a very old form of gambling that involves the drawing of random numbers for a prize. Many governments have at various times banned it or used it as a means of generating income.

The history of lottery in its early form dates back many centuries ago. After World War II, lotteries began to become spring up all over the world as government used it to supplement their revenue.

These days lotteries are run by or for governments, either national, local or international. Some gambling institutions and some corporations also run lottery programs on their own. Lotteries come in many forms but usually always results in the drawing of lots or is based on chance. The prize may be in form of goods or cash. The prizes are usually drawn from a percentage of the revenue derived from ticket sales.

Most lotteries involve the participants choosing a number usually from 1 to 50. The organisers will then randomly select a set of winning numbers. The set of winning numbers may be any 6 or 7 numbers randomly selected from 1-50. Any participant who picked the complete 6 or 7 winning numbers wins the jackpot prize. Where winners are more than one, the money is shared amongst them.

Depending on the structure of the lottery, participants who correctly selected up to 5, 4 or even 3 lucky numbers may also get to share in the prize takings. These later ones would however get far less than the jackpot value.

Some lottery tickets carry a particular number and if the number is chosen as the winning number the ticket owner wins the prize.

Lotteries are the most popular form of gambling today and are played by millions each week.
