History Of National Lottery.
A statute of 1698 provided that in England lotteries were by default illegal unless specifically authorized by statute. Early English state lotteries included the Million Lottery (1694) and the Malt Lottery (1697). These Lotteries were part of a series of financial experiments by the English government including recoinage and the foundation of the Bank of England to raise the capital available to the state.
A 1934 Act, further liberalized in 1956 and 1976, legalized small lotteries.
