Wat was die eerste lotery ooit op televisie?

Wat was die eerste lotery ooit op televisie?

Die Verenigde Koninkryk se nasionale lotery is sedert 1994 op TV. 'N Soortgelyke lotery in Pole is sedert 1973 baie langer op die lug. Die skaars inligting wat aanlyn beskikbaar is, word egter nie as die eerste in die wêreld beskou nie, of met inspirasie vir die Britse program. Wat was toe die eerste lotery wat op televisie plaasgevind het?


Ek kan tot 1957 opstaan.

Dit is die eerste vir die eerste uitsending van die Spaanse Lotería de Navidad (Kersfees -lotery), soos hier vermeld (waarskuwing: skakel in Spaans) en ander bronne.

Dit is die moeite werd om kommentaar te lewer:

  • Die Kersfees -lotery was die belangrikste lotery -geleentheid van die jaar, so ek sou raai dat gereelde (weeklikse) lotery -geleenthede eers later uitgesaai word.

  • Oorspronklik is dit net uitgesaai, sonder enige ankerman (die eerste een sou in 1966 verskyn)


Regstreeks uit Washington, Lottery Night 1969 van die Lottery!


Op die aand van 1 Desember 1969 plaas amptenare van die selektiewe diens en die Amerikaanse kongres die geboortedatums in stygende volgorde, soos dit getrek word in die eerste lotterytydperk in die Viëtnam-era by die selektiewe dienshoofkwartier in Washington. Die uitsending van die geleentheid is regstreeks oor die radio en op CBS uitgesaai. (Nasionale Argief)

Daardie aand, as 'n man 'n lae nommer kry, moes hy vinnig sy onmiddellike toekoms vergroot.

Veertig jaar gelede, op die aand van 1 Desember 1969, het CBS News die gereeld uitgesoekte uitsending voorafgekeer Mayberry RFD om 'n lewendige voer van die Washington -korrespondent Roger Mudd by die hoofkantoor van die selektiewe diens op te haal. 'Goeie aand ... Vanaand het die Verenigde State vir die eerste keer in 27 jaar weer 'n lotery begin,' het Mudd fluisterend gesê terwyl die seremonie in die agtergrond verloop het.

Vir al sy lewensveranderende, groot oomblik drama, as teater was die tekening vir die konsep van 1970 'n lae-begrotingsaangeleentheid, opgevoer op 'n onbeskryflike stel met 'n vreemde verskeidenheid kantoormeubels wat saamgestamp is. Al die 366 blou plastiek -lotto -kapsules is sonder seremonie in 'n groot glashouer gestort, wat gevaarlik bo -op 'n gewone stoel van die biblioteek gestaan ​​het. 'N Amber-gesiene amptenaar gaan sit by 'n tafeltjie met swart stof, gereed om die lotery te begin. Om elke loterynommer te kies, sou iemand net in die pot met 'n waterkoeler kom om 'n kapsule uit te haal. Binne was 'n geboortedatum wat hardop voorgelees sou word, en die lotery -nommer sou begin, met nommer 001.

New Yorkse kongreslid Alexander Pirnie, die hooggeplaaste Republikein in die House Armed Services Committee, is deur die jarelange direkteur -generaal, Lewis B. Hershey, genooi om die eerste nommer te trek. Pirnie stap op, haal 'n kapsule uit en gee dit aan die amptenaar by die tafel, wat die kapsule oopmaak, die koerant ooprol en aankondig: "14 September ... 14 September is 001."

Die klein stukkie papier is dan in die 001 -posisie vasgemaak op 'n groot bord met nommers van 001 tot 366, 'n gleuf vir elke verjaarsdag, insluitend 29 Februarie vir babas in die skrikkeljaar. Bo -op die bord was die opskrif: Random Selection Sequence, 1970.

Vir die miljoene jong mans en hul gesinne wat op TV kyk of oor die radio luister, was dit die enigste keer dat hulle instinktief nie die gelukkige nommer wou hê nie. Die selektiewe diens het beraam dat diegene met getalle in die laagste een derde waarskynlik opgestel sou word, diegene in die boonste derde waarskynlik veilig was en dat diegene in die middel moontlik opgestel sou word. Daardie aand, as 'n man 'n lae nommer kry, moes hy vinnig sy onmiddellike toekoms vergroot.

Tom, nr 030: 'Sedert 1969 vertel ek vir vriende dat die enigste lotery wat ek nog ooit gewen het, die konseplotery van 1969 was. Ek onthou dat ek in die kuil van my koshuis saam met al die ander inwoners TV gekyk het, die meeste in aanmerking vir diens. Ek was 'n junior. My nommer kom vinnig op. Ek het geweet dat van die oomblik af die hoogste prioriteit van my lewe was om die konsep en die Viëtnam -oorlog te hanteer. Skool, familie en vriende het agteroor gesit. ”

Na die eerste keuse stap Pirnie opsy en gee aandag aan die afgevaardigdes van die selektiewe diens -jeugadviesraad, wat dan om die beurt vyf of ses kapsules per stuk trek. President Richard M. Nixon het daarop aangedring dat jongmense van regoor die land aan die lotery deelneem om aan te toon dat mans en vroue van die ouderdom by die proses betrokke was. Paul Murray, 'n student van Rhode Island, was die eerste afgevaardigde: "24 April ... 24 April is 002." "30 Desember ... 30 Desember is 003." En so het dit gegaan.

Jim, nr 002: 'Ek kon die universiteit bywoon via 'n ruim beurs deur die Navy ROTC. Na my graduering in Januarie 1970, met 'n graad in joernalistiek, was ek bestem om in die vloot te gaan. Tog was die lotery 'n onvergeetlike dag, nag en oggend daarna. Ek was nommer 2, 24 April, en dit was 'n rede vir 'n viering. Ek onthou die kroeg waar ons begin drink het, maar die optog in State Street sal vir ewig in 'n mis verlore gaan. Omdat ek nommer 2 was, was ek altyd die wenner, en die bier was gratis vir my, telkens as die geroep om loterykommers aangegaan het. Alhoewel die lotery nie bepaal het of ek in die weermag gedien het nie, het dit baie van my vriende geraak. Ek het uiteindelik twee toere in Viëtnam gedien, en in die vloot het ek geleer hoeveel ek kon doen, en dat niks onmoontlik was nie. Dit was wonderlike jare - en nie so goeie jare nie - alles in een rol. ”

Verslaggewer Mudd het aan sy kykers verduidelik hoe die seremonie wat agter hom afspeel, baie minder ingewikkeld was as die in 1940, toe die Verenigde State voorberei het op die Tweede Wêreldoorlog. "Nege-en-twintig jaar gelede is oorlogsekretaris Harry Stimson byvoorbeeld geblinddoek met 'n staaltjie stoffering wat van een van die stoele afgehaal is wat gebruik is by die ondertekening van die Onafhanklikheidsverklaring." In 1940, toe oorlogsvliegtuie in formasie oor die gebou van die selektiewe diens vlieg, word die loterye binne gemeng met 'n houtspaan wat vermoedelik uit een van die balke van die Independence Hall gesny is. Stimson trek die eerste nommer en gee dit direk aan die president, Franklin D. Roosevelt, wat dit dan aan die saamgestelde gehoor voorgelees het. Die enigste oordrag van die gebeurtenis in 1940, verduidelik Mudd, was generaal Hershey self, wat destyds "die nuwe uitvoerende direkteur van die selektiewe diens was, en wat vanaand die seremonies as die uittredende direkteur geopen het."

Genl Lewis B. Hershey (links), die vurige direkteur van die selektiewe diens, is die voorsitter van die lotery as NY Cong. Alexander Pirnie teken die eerste van die 366 blou kapsules met geboortedatums. (Nasionale Argief)

Die vurige 76-jarige generaal was 'n gunsteling teiken vir betogers teen oorlog. In Oktober 1967, in reaksie op kampusbetogings, het hy die sogenaamde "Hershey-richtlijn" uitgereik waarin alle plaaslike konseprade aanbeveel word dat mans wat inmeng met militêre werwing op 'n universiteitskampus onmiddellik die klassifikasie van die konsepstatus moet ondergaan. Hershey is uitgehaal in Columbia, het van die verhoog af geboender in Howard, en sy motor is in Wisconsin met eiers bestook. Hy is op vredesaamtrekke versadig deur 'n straatkunstenaar wat homself 'generaal Hersheybar' genoem het, geklee in valse militêre regalia met 'n speelgoedvliegtuig wat uit sy pet hang.

Alhoewel Hershey onlangs uit sy pos by die selektiewe diens herbedien is, is hy toegelaat om lank genoeg op die pos te bly om voorsitter te wees by die eerste loting van die herleefde lotery. Die trekking kom slegs vyf dae nadat president Nixon die wysigings aan die wetsontwerp onderteken het en die nasionale lotery gevra het.

Gary, nr 023: 'In 1969 was ek in my vierde jaar op universiteit. Ek het in 'n klein woonstelgebou gewoon ... en almal in die gebou het in my kamer gekom om na die lotery op my ou swart en wit TV te kyk. Iemand het 'n pakkie bier saamgebring wat die 'wenner' sou ontvang, dit wil sê die persoon met die laagste aantal van die ouens in die gebou. Ongelukkig het ek die six pack gewen met nommer 23. Dit was so 'n onbeduidende prys vir iets so potensieel aaklig, maar ek het op 'n manier goed gevoel daaroor. Ek hoef darem nie te wonder wat om te doen nie, want sommige van my vriende moes ongeveer 180. Ek het die ses pak gedrink, by die Army Reserves aangesluit (nadat ek in 1970 gestudeer het) en 31 jaar later as sersant afgetree. hoofvak. ”

Na raming sou 850 000 jong mans hul konsep -toekoms in die eerste lotery leer. Elke man tussen 19 en 26 jaar, wie se konsepstatus nog nie opgelos is nie, het 'n belang in die uitkoms, aangesien dit die volgorde bepaal waarin mans tussen 1944 en 1950 gebore is om in 1970 vir induksie aangemeld te word.

Die grootste verandering in die konsep van 1970 was dat dit die ouderdomsprioriteit omgekeer het-in plaas daarvan om die oudste mans eerste uit die 18- tot 26-jarige geskikte reeks te neem, sou plaaslike rade nou die 19-jariges eers bel. Die goeie nuus was dat die meeste mans se onsekerheid oor hul konsepstatus verkort word. Voor die veranderinge van 1970 was daar geen stelsel om die oproepvolgorde volgens ouderdom te bepaal nie - almal tussen 18 en 26 was kwesbaar vir opstel. Jong mans wag dalk jare om hul konsep -toekoms te leer ken. Aangesien ouer mans in die konsep-ouderdomsgroep eers gebel is, kon jonger mans wat probeer loop met loopbane of huwelike, en die gesin net wag en wonder of hul lewens onderbreek word deur die vereiste militêre diens.

Ingevolge die vorige stelsel, benewens dat elke konsepraad wat die prioriteit "oudste mans eerste" toegepas het by die nakoming van die plaaslike mannekwota, ook besluit het wie uitstel sal ontvang, soos of 'n man wat as gewetensbeswaarder gekwalifiseer het, geregtig is op 'n familie uitstel of bevredigende vordering gemaak het in die rigting van 'n universiteitsgraad. Diegene wat ontevrede is met hul konsepstatus, kan maande of jare lank deur die konsepstelsel en die howe teen die besluit van die plaaslike raad appelleer. Teen 1969 het die aantal aansoeke om konsepstatus verdubbel bo die van die Koreaanse Oorlog.

Die toenemende ongewildheid van die Viëtnam -oorlog het gelei tot 'n groter ondersoek van die konsepproses. Politici, vakbonde en universiteitsleiers wys toenemend op rassevooroordeel, klas- of inkomste-vooroordeel en drastiese verskille in die praktyke van plaaslike konseprade, wat in die middel van die sestigerjare die doelwit geword het van protesoptogte teen oorlog. Betogers het insittendes tydens konsepbordverrigtinge gehou, betogers het rekords in 'n aantal groot stede verbrand, en 'n radikale priester het rekords by die Baltimore-konsepbord met eendbloed laat doop.

Mike, nr 217: '' N 19-jarige uit 'n middelklasgesin in New Bern, NC, was eenvoudig nie toegerus om al die verskillende kante van die oorlogskwessie te hanteer of te verstaan ​​nie, en ek doen dit vandag nog nie. Net soos almal het ek my bes gedoen om die konsep te vermy. Maar in die somer van 1969 bevind ek my in Cape Cod, Mass., Waar ek blootgestel was aan beide dwelmpartye en aan jong pelotonleiers, skaars twee jaar later kollege wat met verlof uit Viëtnam huis toe kom of uit die weermag kom. As ek sien hoe my vriende by die 'dwelm van die dag' betrokke raak, het dit my min beïndruk, maar ek was ontroer deur die kalm vertroue van hierdie terugkerende veeartse, slegs 3-4 jaar ouer as ek. Aan die einde van die somer het ek besluit om by die weermag aan te sluit. Na 'n jaar in die infanterie -opleiding, is ek na Vietnam gestuur, waar ek deur rysveldjies gesak het en saam met 'n paar van die mees onvergeetlike 'vriende' wat ek die voorreg gehad het om te dien, bedien het. Danksy my tyd in Viëtnam kon ek baie uitdagende besluite tegemoet gaan met dieselfde kalm vertroue wat die jong peloton -bevelvoerders wat ek in die somer van '69 so respekteer het. '

Die eenvoudigste manier om die probleme van die konsepstelsel op te los, was om daarvan ontslae te raak en die weermag om te skakel na 'n vrywillige mag. Vrywilligers alleen kon egter nie die nodige troepevlakke in Viëtnam handhaaf nie. President Nixon, wat tydens sy eerste ampstermyn nie die konsepstelsel kon afskaf nie, maar in die hoop om die onrus te ontlont, het in 1969 besluit om die konsep te hervorm terwyl hy die oorskakeling na 'n vrywillige mag voorstel. Hy het aangedring op die verandering in ouderdomsprioriteit en 'n beroep gedoen op 'n nasionale lotery. Na massiewe protesoptogte in Washington in Oktober en November 1969, het die Kongres die skuif na 'n loterystelsel goedgekeur, en Nixon het die nuwe wet op 26 November onderteken.

President Nixon het die lotery en ander konsepwetswysigings beskou as 'n manier om stoom uit die betogings wat deur studente gelei is, soos die in Washington. (Selektiewe diensargief)

Nixon het gehoop dat die lotery ten minste die persepsie van billikheid in die konsepproses sou herstel en protesoptogte op die kampus sou verminder deur die kwesbaarheid van konsepte in wese vir studente met die hoogste getalle uit te skakel. Diegene met getalle in die middel, moes egter bystaan ​​en kyk hoe die getalle maandeliks styg namate konsepkwotas nagekom word.

Die opdrag om aan te meld vir liggaamlike ondersoek was die eerste stap om by die gewapende dienste ingedien te word. Die loterygetalle van 19-jariges is gedurende die eerste helfte van 1970 teen ongeveer 30 per maand gebel, sodat iemand met 'n lae getal waarskynlik in Februarie 1970 na die fisiese ondersoek ontbied kan word, of uitgestel word of ingewy word teen Mei in diens is. As 'n individu se nommer nie gedurende 1970 gebel word nie, is die kans goed dat hy glad nie gebel sou word nie - tensy hy 'n uitgestelde kollege -uitstel gehad het.

As 'n man geskik was vir diens, is hy as 1-A geklassifiseer, wat beteken dat hy onmiddellik vir militêre diens beskikbaar was. As hy geskik was vir diens, maar nie oorlog toe wou gaan nie, het hy tien dae tyd om 'n eis om vrystelling, uitstel of uitstel in te dien. 'N Gewetensbeswaardes is as 1-A geklassifiseer, "slegs beskikbaar vir nie-bestrydende militêre diens." Die opdrag om aan te meld vir induksiebrief was die amptelike kennisgewing dat 'n individu opgestel is. Die hoogste loterygetal wat in 1970 gevra is vir 'n fisieke was 215, en alle mans met die nommer 195 of laer, ingedeel 1-A of 1-A-O, is aangemeld om moontlike induksie aan te meld.

In 1970 kan 'n persoon in aanmerking kom vir uitstel as hy kan bewys dat hy 'n voltydse student is, en hy vorder na 'n graad. Hy kon op skool voortgaan en uitgestel word tot hy 26 was, te oud om opgestel te word. Na 1971 het die kongres egter die konsepwette verander, en kon studente hul toevoer slegs tot die einde van die huidige semester, of vir 'n senior, tot die einde van die skooljaar uitstel.

Mark, nr. 069: 'Solank ek 'n voorgraadse student was, is ek uitgestel, maar my lae loterygetal het beteken dat ek eers na die gradeplegtigheid sou begin. Ek was destyds 5'11 3/4 "en weeg slegs 135 pond, en ek is meegedeel dat ek uitgestel sou word as ek 127 pond weeg. Die somer na die gradeplegtigheid het ek 'n dieet aangegaan en 'n paar kilogram verloor voordat ek fisiek was. Die aand voor my fisieke, weeg ek 127, maar ek was baie bekommerd dat ek ingelyf sou word, en ek het na 'n gesondheidsklub gegaan en ure lank in 'n stoomkamer gesit ... Toe ek geweeg word, was ek 115 pond en hulle het my 'n 1-H-klassifikasie gegee en vir my gesê ek moet oor 6 maande terugkom. ”

Die laaste datum wat in die lotery van 1970, nommer 366, getrek is, was 8 Junie. "Dit was 'n baie sistematiese, byna meganiese lotery", berig Roger Mudd. 'Hier was min opwinding, maar vir een of twee kort geleenthede. Vier of vyf van die adviesraadslede vir die jeug wou nie deelneem nie en beweer dat hulle dink dat hulle deur die Nixon -administrasie gebruik word om die loterystelsel goed te keur. ” Die volgende dag het 'n koerantberig berig: 'David L. Fowler, wat die District of Columbia verteenwoordig, het na die mikrofoon gekom en gesê dat hy' in kennis gestel 'is om nie te teken nie en het weggeloop. Desondanks het genl Lewis B. Hershey (76), direkteur van die selektiewe diens, wat beskuldig word van swaarhandige konsepbeleid, opgestaan ​​en Mnr Fowler se hand gegryp. ” Nóg Hershey, nóg een van die ander amptenare het besluit om die verklarings van die ander deelnemers af te sny. Ongeveer 'n dosyn betogers is buite aangemeld terwyl hulle die konsep, die lotery en die oorlog aan die kaak gestel het.

Petrus, nr. 303: 'Die dag toe die loterygetalle bekend gemaak is, was almal baie stil op my koshuisvloer. Ek het uitgevind dat my nommer 303 is. Ek was gelukkig. Een van my naaste vriende, Glen, was nie so gelukkig nie. Sy getal was 36. Maar Glen was die ewige optimis. Ek sal altyd sy reaksie onthou: 'So I go ... and I will come back.' Hy was die eerste op die vloer om na Vietnam te gaan. Hy het my gereeld uit sy voorpos geskryf ... en selfs vir my een van sy groen weermaghemde teruggestuur met sy naam bo die borssak vasgewerk. Ek was verder 'n korrespondent vir Newsweek en het die oorlog tuis behandel. Uiteindelik het Glen sy woord gestand gedoen. Hy is na Viëtnam. Hy het teruggekom, en gelukkig in een stuk ... fisies. Maar geestelik was hy nooit dieselfde nie ... hy het eenvoudig opgehou skryf en verdwyn. Ek het vandag nog die hemp, 'n herinnering aan hoe die lotery ons lewens verander het. "

Waarskynlikheidsondersoeke van die lottery -resultate van 1970 het aangedui dat die keuringsproses nie heeltemal willekeurig was nie - die geboortedatums wat later in die jaar plaasgevind het, sou onproportioneel vroeg gekies word. Dit was waarskynlik die gevolg van onvoldoende vermenging van die kapsules. 'N Hofuitdaging het gevolg, maar die lotery -uitslae is gehandhaaf. In die daaropvolgende loterye is 'n ander prosedure gevolg om te verseker dat die kapsules volledig gerandomiseer is.

Op 27 Januarie 1973-die dag toe die wapenstilstand in Viëtnam aangekondig is-het die administrasie die konsep gestaak, ses maande voordat die wetsontwerp op 1 Julie 1973 sou verstryk. Die laaste konseplottery was op 7 Desember 1972.

Behalwe vir 'n onderbreking van een jaar, het die konsep voortdurend van krag gehou vanaf die Tweede Wêreldoorlog totdat dit in 1973 afgeskaf is. Generaal Hershey, wat steeds weier om sy weermagloopbaan wat in 1911 begin het, prys te gee, is op 10 April 1973 onwillekeurig afgetree, net toe die konsep wat hy so lank gehardloop het, vir die vrywillige weermag ingegee het. *

LOTTERY GAMES

Early lottery games were simple raffles in which a person purchased a ticket preprinted with a number. The player might have had to wait for weeks for a drawing to determine if the ticket was a winner. These types of games, called passive drawing games, were the dominant lottery games in 1973. By 1997 they had ceased to exist, as consumers demanded more exciting games that provided quicker payoffs and more betting options.

Nearly all states that operate lotteries offer cash lotto and instant games. Players of lotto games select a group of numbers from a large set and are then awarded prizes based on how many picked numbers offer a second set of numbers chosen in a random drawing. Most lotto tickets sell for $1, and drawings are held once or twice per week to determine the winning numbers. Scratch-off instant games are paper tickets on which certain spaces have been coated with a scratch-off substance that when removed reveals numbers or text underneath that must match posted sequences to win.

Most states offer other numbers games, such as three-and four-digit games. Pull tabs, spiel, keno, and video lottery games are much less common. Pull tabs are twoply paper tickets that must be separated to reveal symbols or numbers underneath that must match posted sequences to win. Spiel is an add-on feature to a lotto game that provides an extra set of numbers for a fee that must be matched to numbers selected in the random drawing to win. Keno is a lotto game in which a set of numbers is selected from a large field of numbers players select a smaller set of numbers and are awarded prizes based on how many of their numbers match those in the drawn set. Video lottery terminals are electronic games of chance played on video screens that simulate popular casino games such as poker and blackjack. Keno and video lottery games are considered by many to be casino-type games, especially because they can be played every few minutes (in the case of fast keno) or at will (in the case of video lottery terminals), which makes them more controversial and generally less acceptable than more traditional lottery games.

As of 2008, many lottery games were conducted using computer networks. Retail outlets have computer terminals that are linked by phone lines to a central computer at the lottery commission, which records wagers as they are made. The computer network is a private, dedicated network that can be accessed only by lottery officials and retailers. Players can either choose their numbers themselves or allow the computer to select

numbers randomly, an option known as Quick Pick. The computer link allows retailers to validate winning tickets.

Most lotto drawings are televised live. Some states also air lottery game shows in which contestants compete for money and prizes. Byvoorbeeld, The Big Spin, the California State Lottery's thirty-minute game show, has been broadcast since 1985. Contestants, who are chosen through lottery drawings or special promotions, spin a big wheel to win cash prizes in front of a cheering audience.

Lottery winners generally have six months to one year to collect their prizes, depending on state rules. If the top prize, usually called the jackpot, is not won, the amount of the jackpot usually rolls over to the next drawing, increasing the jackpot. Lotteries are often most popular when the jackpot has rolled over several times and grown to an unusually large amount.

Most states allow players to choose in advance how a jackpot will be paid to them — either all at once (the cash lump-sum prize) or in installments (an annuity, usually paid out over twenty or twenty-five years). Either way, in most states taxes are subtracted from the prize.

Scratch Games

In 1974 Massachusetts became the first state to offer an instant lottery game using scratch-off tickets. By 2008 games involving scratch tickets (or “ scratchers, ” as they are called in some states) were extremely popular. Lottery organizations offer many different scratch games with various themes.

Scratch games run for a specified period, usually for several months to a year. Many scratch tickets allow a player to win multiple times on each ticket. The top prize amounts are often hundreds of thousands of dollars. However, some of the games offer prizes besides money, including merchandise, trips, vehicles, and tickets to sporting events and concerts. For example, in 2006 a Missouri scratch game gave away a seat at a table at the World Poker Tour tournament. The total winnings for such prizes often include payment by the lottery commission of federal and state income taxes on the value of the prizes.

Many lotteries have teamed with sports franchises and other companies to provide popular products as prizes. For example, in June 2008 the New Jersey Lottery Commission announced a scratch game in which a Harley-Davidson motorcycle was the top prize. Many brand-name promotions feature famous celebrities, sports figures and teams, or cartoon characters. These merchandising deals benefit the companies through product exposure and advertising the lotteries benefit because the companies share advertising costs.

In 2008 most states offered “ high-profit point tickets ” — scratch tickets priced as high as $30, which are often part of a holiday or themed promotion. (Traditional scratch tickets sell for $1 to $5.) The higher-priced tickets appeal to many scratch players because they offer more valuable prizes and payouts than regular-priced tickets. However, in “ ‘ Zero ’ Chance Lottery Tickets Stun Some Players ” (CNN.com, July 7, 2008), Jason Carroll and Susan Chun report that in 2008 state lotteries came under fire for continuing to sell the high-priced scratch-off tickets even after the top prize had been won. In fact, Scott Hoover of Washington and Lee University sued the state of Virginia for a breach of contract after he bought a scratch-off ticket called “ Beginner's Luck ” and later learned the top prizes had already been won.

Most lotteries operate toll-free numbers or Web sites that provide information on scratch-game prizes. Patrons can find out which prizes have been awarded and which remain to be claimed.

Second-Chance Games

Sometimes even nonwinning lottery tickets have value. Most state lotteries run occasional second-chance drawings — and even third-chance drawings — in which holders of nonwinning tickets for particular games can still win cash or prizes. For example, the New York Lottery held a second-chance drawing during the summer of 2006 in which holders of nonwinning Subway Series scratch tickets could win Mets and New York Yankees tickets and merchandise. The grand prize winner in Florida's $100,000 Hold 'Em Poker second-chance drawing in December 2007 won a seat at a World Poker Tour tournament with a buy-in of $10,000, a week's accommodation at the tournament site, additional spending money, and tickets to the tournament finals. Winners of quarterly second-chance drawings in Nevada may be awarded either $2,500 in cash or thirty $10 scratch-off tickets.

Video Lottery Games

Video lottery games are highly profitable computer games that are played on video lottery terminals (VLTs). They are monitored and controlled by a central computer system overseen by a state's lottery agency. VLTs were operated in nine states in 2008: Delaware, Louisiana, Montana, New Mexico, New York, Oregon, Rhode Island, South Dakota, and West Virginia. Three of these states, Rhode Island, Delaware, and West Virginia, launched the first multistate, progressive video lottery game in 2006 (a progressive jackpot is one that increases with each game played). Known as Ca$hola, the game begins with a $250,000 jackpot.

VLTs in Louisiana, Montana, and South Dakota are owned by private entities. Those in Rhode Island are leased by the state to private operators. VLTs in the other states are owned by state lottery commissions. In Delaware, New York, and Rhode Island, VLTs are only allowed at racetracks. Except in New York, profits from

the VLTs are split between the racetracks and the state lotteries. The VLTs in New York were challenged in court because the state's constitution requires that lottery proceeds benefit education programs. Some VLT revenue was going to racetracks, so the courts declared the diversion of lottery revenue unconstitutional. In 2005 the state legislature amended the law. Under the new legislation the money for the racetrack owners comes out of the state's general fund and all the money gathered from the VLTs goes to education.

In Iowa, VLTs were introduced in 2003, and eventually nearly six thousand VLTs were bringing in over $1.1 billion in revenue. However, according to the Cedar Rapids Gazette Online (July 15, 2006), calls to the state's hotline for gambling problems rose 17% in 2005, largely because of VLTs, and the state legislature shut down the VLT program in May 2006.

Video lottery games have become controversial because many people consider them hard-core gambling. They allow continuous gambling for large sums of money, as opposed to lotto play, which features drawings only once or twice a week. Opponents of video lottery games contend that they are much more addictive than traditional lottery games because of their availability and instant payoffs. They also contend that the games have a special appeal to young people, who are accustomed to playing video games.

Multistate Games

POWERBALL. During the 1980s lottery officials realized that multistate lotteries could offer higher payoffs than single-state lotteries because the costs of running one game could be shared. The Multi-State Lottery Association (MUSL) was formed in 1987 as a nonprofit association of states offering lotteries. It administers a variety of games, the best known of which is Powerball. In this lotto game each ticket has six numbers: five numbers are selected out of fifty-five numbers, and then a separate number, the Powerball, is selected out of forty-two numbers. The odds of winning the jackpot are about 146 million to 1. Drawings have been held twice weekly since the first drawing on April 22, 1992. The largest jackpot ever paid out, in February 2006, was $365 million. It was split evenly among eight coworkers in Lincoln, Nebraska.

As of August 2008, MUSL(http://www.musl.com/musl_members.html) had thirty-one members. Each member state offered at least one MUSL game, and twenty-nine member states, the District of Columbia, and the U.S. Virgin Islands offered the Powerball. Each member keeps 50% of its own Powerball ticket sales the rest is paid out in prizes.

MEGA MILLIONS. Mega Millions is a popular multi-state game that is offered in twelve states. Players choose six numbers from two separate number pools: five numbers from 1 to 56, and one number from 1 to 46. All six numbers must be chosen in the drawing to win the jackpot. The odds of winning the jackpot are about 175 million to 1. Drawings are held twice weekly.

Mega Millions was originally known as the Big Game. The first Big Game drawing took place on September 6, 1996. It became popular and soon offered jackpots of more than $50 million. Its largest jackpot was won in May 2000 — two winners, one in Michigan and one in Illinois, split $363 million.

However, Big Game sales lagged during FY 2001, so game operators renamed it Mega Millions and increased the initial jackpot to $10 million, twice what it had been for the Big Game. Ticket sales increased dramatically. In 2005 the minimum jackpot was raised to $12 million when California joined the lottery. The biggest Mega Millions jackpot was in March 2007 — $390 million was split between a couple in Woodbine, New Jersey, and another person in Dalton, Georgia.


Mega Millions winner in New Jersey anonymously claims $202 million jackpot

Someone in New Jersey is $202 million dollars richer — we just don’t know who.

The mystery player claimed their Mega Millions prize recently, making them the first in the state to do so under anonymity, lottery officials said on Tuesday.

In January 2020, a new law was passed allowing New Jersey Mega Millions winners to collect their prizes anonymously and avoid publicity. Nearly a month later, on Feb. 12, the winning ticket was announced after the prior night’s drawing.

The New Jersey Lottery said in a statement that the lucky person watched the announcement on Facebook while at work and went to their car to check their ticket.

“The winner, completely shocked, managed to compose themselves enough to get back to work while they gathered their thoughts and made a plan,” the statement said.

James Carey, executive director of the New Jersey Lottery, visited the Quick Stop Food Store in Edison where the winning ticket was sold on the day of the announcement. He awarded owners Apexa and Kauschik Patela a $30,000 commission check and offered a bit of advice to the unknown jackpot winner.

“We always tell people when you win — sign the back of that ticket right away,” Carey said at the Quick Stop. “Then put it in a safe place, talk to an attorney, talk to a financial advisor, and come to us and claim that ticket.”

The winner was indeed listening. After watching the press conference live on Facebook they “were overwhelmed with the good news and unsure what to do next.” But they eventually signed the ticket and went to a lawyer, who guided them in how to best go about securing their newfound wealth, said lottery officials.

Only a handful of other states— Delaware, Kansas, Maryland, North Dakota, Ohio and South Carolina— allow jackpot winners the choice of total anonymity, which is intended to protect winners from harassment.


Almanac: The 1969 draft lottery

On December 1st, 1969, America's first military draft lottery since World War II was held.

With the war in Vietnam as a backdrop &ndash and the futures of some 850,000 young men (born between 1944-1950) on the line &ndash the lottery featured a bin containing 366 capsules, one for each possible birthday.

The order in which their birthdays were drawn from the bin would determine the order in which those young men would be drafted. First chosen = First to serve.

Congressman Alexander Pernie, of New York, drew the first number: "September 14th &hellip 001."

Capsule by capsule, date by date, the board filled up, finally concluding with June 8th as number 366.

Statisticans soon cried foul, arguing that birthdates near the end of the year had inadvertently been clustered toward the top of the bin, making them more likely to be drawn first.

Trending Nuus

Fair or not, as events played out, only men with birthdays numbered one through 195 were ultimately called to duty. Men with the remaining 171 birthdays were home free.

America ended the military draft in 1973, and has relied on voluntary enlistment ever since. But for many of the thousands who watched the drawing with bated breath, memories of that draft lottery telecast remain as vivid as ever.

What was the first ever televised lottery? - Geskiedenis

A 1 ticket gives you a one-in-14-million chance of striking lucky and guessing correctly the winning six out of 49 numbers.

The lottery operator Camelot says around 15 million players have already bought some 35 million tickets from licensed retailers.

The money raised from ticket sales will help fund the arts, sports, charities, national heritage and millennium celebrations.

Prime Minister John Major launched the ticket sales just under a week ago.

He said, "The country will be a lot richer because of the lottery. It is in every sense the people's lottery."

The game has certainly gripped the public's imagination. Around seven million tickets were sold within 12 hours of the launch and it is expected that final sales could reach 45m.

Twenty five million people are expected to tune into BBC One's live lottery draw show hosted by Noel Edmonds, Anthea Turner and Gordon Kennedy tonight.

Forty nine contestants - one for each lottery number -have been chosen from thousands to participate in an "It's a Knockout" style competition as part of the show.

The victor gets the chance to press the button on the prize machine, launching Britain's first lottery draw since 1826.

A 10m computer will randomly select the winning numbers that will roll down one by one into a display rack.

The machine will then check for a winning combination and calculate the size of the jackpot.

The computer will reveal whether there is a top prize winner within half an hour but cross-checking could take as long as four hours.

Telephone staff will be waiting to get a call from the winner as soon as the numbers are picked.

Once officials have established that a claim is genuine, a team will drive the winner to the nearest Camelot office.

In its first year 267m of lottery money went to the "good causes" - arts, heritage, millennium and sport - 154m went to charity.

There has been controversy about how lottery money is spent.

In 1996 Prime Minister John Major criticised grants to certain minority groups such as gays and in 1997 Labour attracted criticism when it introduced the New Opportunities Fund to target one fifth of "good causes" money on government health education and environment programmes.

In 2002 Camelot won another seven-year contract to run the lottery, beating Richard Branson for the tender a second time.

In May 2003 MPs criticised plans to use 1.5bn of Lotto cash to part-fund London's bid for the 2012 Olympics.

Camelot introduced a range of games such as scratchcards, Thunderball and EuroMillions to stem flagging ticket sales.

The National Lottery announced an income of 4.6bn in 2004, representing the first year-on-year growth since 1997.


In November 2004, the ASA extended its remit to TV and radio advertising and within a couple of weeks was receiving complaints. The first ad it banned was by soft drink brand Tango. Part of its &ldquoYou know when you&rsquove been Tango&rsquoed&rdquo campaign, it featured a man who rolls down a hill inside a tube surrounded by oranges. The watchdog, which received four complaints, feared children could copy the commercial and harm themselves.


Took same trail like Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay

Tabei’s all-women team reached the world’s tallest peak at 21,326 feet above sea level at the time of a dangerous avalanche nearby Nuptse on May 16, 1975. Everyone survived. The group briefly rested in tents at Camp II and braved the rough weather. Tabei had decided to go the same trail taken by Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay, who made it to the summit 22 years earlier on 29 May 1953. In all, her team comprised of 14 mountaineers, 23 sherpas, and 500 porters, all of whom were managed by the Tokyo Women's Mountaineering Club. In 1970 Tabei also hiked atop Annapurna III (7.555m). In 1975 she became the driving force for women for Everest women's expedition.
