Lotteries have been around for hundreds of years and were very different to the lottery we have these days, back in the day the lottery was a way that the government would rally up money from the public to fund the army, roads, buildings etc. Many years later the lottery has evolved into what we have now. The first big lottery to happen on German soil was held in 1614 in Hamburg. A few years later in Austria, they held their first lottery in 1751. This was during the reign of Empress Maria Theresia, this lottery was based on 90 numbers.

After Austria Spain held their lotto in 1763 and over the last two centuries the lottery in Spain has developed into a tradition.
