An instant lottery ticket contains perforated, fan-folded tickets. The price of the tickets determines how many are in a book. Some tickets cost one dollar, while others cost twenty dollars. You may place a combination bet in a boxed bet or a combination bet. A combination bet covers all possible combinations of three or four digit numbers. If you win the combination bet, the winning amount is less than if you bet on one number and a combination of two or three.
The first record of a lottery goes back to Ancient China. Between 205 and 187 BC, lotteries were used to fund important government projects. The Han Dynasty, for example, was known for their elaborate wall. The Roman Empire also held lotteries, but only as entertainment at dinner parties. In fact, the first commercial lottery was held by Emperor Augustus, who intended to use the proceeds to repair the City of Rome.
