NASPL: The North American Association of State and Provincial Libraries has created a short timeline on the history of lotteries. The concept of the lottery as a form of gambling is a very old one. NASPL cites references to them in the Bible as well as to Roman and Chinese sources. The timeline covers ancient times up to the present day, with a few dates falling into the Renaissance time period.
