If you’re wondering why people play the lottery, you’re not alone. The lottery has been around for thousands of years. Chinese Han Dynasty lottery slips date back to around 205 BC and were said to have helped finance major government projects. The Chinese Book of Songs refers to the lottery as a “drawing of wood or lots.”
Game of chance to win a designated prize
A Games of Chance License is required to operate raffles, lotto games, or bingo in Maine. These games of chance award prizes based on matching winning numbers, symbols, or colors. It is important to understand that a Games of Chance License does not give your business the authority to conduct lotto or bingo operations. You need a separate license from the New York City Department of Consumer and Worker Protection before you can conduct these activities.
