History of Euro Millions Lottery
The history of lotteries can be traced back to Moses and the Bible. It is also said that the construction of the Great Wall of China was financed by lotteries. There is evidence that certain forms of lottery date back to the time of Julius Caesar.
Lotteries flourished throughout Europe between the 15th and 17th centuries. One of the world’s oldest lotteries was instituted in Portugal, to raise funds to help the poor and meet the country’s monetary needs. The Netherlands were another of the European countries to form a lottery, and that is still one of the world’s oldest lotteries still running. In those days the main purpose for creating a lottery was to replace that specific country’s funds, so that wars could be financed, and money could go towards construction of roads and buildings.
The history of Euro Millions as we know it, first began in 1994, and was ushered in by internet growth. Originally the idea had been to start a new European Lottery to coincide with the introduction of a single European currency. This plan, however, was delayed a number of times before being launched ten years later. The first Euro Millions Lottery draw took place on 13th February 2004. At first there were only three countries involved, France, Spain and the United Kingdom.
The first jackpot was worth 15 million Euros. The first few countries were joined by Austria, Belgium, Ireland, Luxembourg, Portugal and Switzerland on 8th October 2004. The draw takes place each Tuesday and Friday night in Paris. Approximately 50 percent of the income is spent on the prizes. The draw involves 5 balls drawn from 50, plus 2 balls drawn from 9. The odds of matching 5 from 50 and 2 from 9 are 76 million to 1.
