The United States has a long history of lottery play. However, the lottery has changed over the years. The first state-wide lottery was established in New Hampshire in 1964. This was followed by other state-wide lotteries in Minnesota, Alaska, Alabama, Hawaii, Nebraska and Louisiana. The only state that currently does not feature a state-wide lottery is Nevada. This was because of a constitution that prohibited gambling. However, residents of Nevada regularly cross the border to buy lottery tickets in neighboring states.

Some states offer state-wide lotteries that include online scratch cards. These are like scratch-off lotteries, but the prize is matched to the symbol. The odds of winning are often better than buying an official ticket.
