The first documented European lottery was held during the Roman Empire. During Saturnalian revels, wealthy noblemen distributed prizes. A record dated 9 May 1445 at L’Ecluse mentions a lottery with 4304 tickets.

One of the earliest known lotteries was the Loterie Royale, which was sponsored by King Francis I of France. The lottery was a fiasco, however. It was advertised as an opportunity to win a great deal of money, but the winners only received articles of unequal value.
Another example was the Slave Lottery of 1769. This lottery was run by Col. Bernard Moore, and it advertised the possibility of winning a prize of “free” slaves.
