In the 1820s, New York passed the firstconstitutional prohibition of lotteries. One of the most effective methods of selling lottery ticketshad been through post offices, but in 1827, a law was passed banning postmasters from sellingthem and in 1868, Congress declared that it was unlawful to use the mail for lotteries. In 1856, the Act Concerning Lotteries expressly forbade all types of lotteries in Canada. This Actespecially affected the Catholic Church, whose clergy had financed its mission from lotteryproceeds for almost a hundred years. Winning the lottery was one of the few ways impoverishedIrish immigrants had of getting rich. By 1878, all states except Louisiana had prohibited lotteries, either by statute or in theirconstitution. The Louisiana Lottery was one of the most successful lotteries ever and ran tickets allover the country by pony express and mail post until it was outlawed. Winning the lottery becamethe same as "winning the Louisiana Lottery". In its heyday, the Louisiana Lottery gained over 90%of its revenue from out of state sources but was surrounded by allegations of political bribery andcorruption from its inception in 1868. "Honesty pays, but it doesn't seem to pay enough to suit some people." - F. M. Hubbard The U.S. Supreme Court started the 20th century by reaffirming the states' use of police powers tocontrol gambling, effectively ending all legal gambling in the United States, including the LouisianaLottery. The Supreme Court ruled that lotteries had "a demoralizing influence upon the people."Winning the lottery was no longer an optional path to wealth. Lotteries, with their amazing history of funding public and private enterprise back to ancient times,were prohibited in the United States by constitutional provisions for the next 60 to 70 years. Modern Lotteries: Winning the Lottery in Australia
 It was not until the 1960s that lotteries got going once again in the United States. It is to Australiathat we must look for the beginnings of modern lotteries. The state of Queensland introduced theQueensland State Lottery of Australia in 1917 and was the first lottery to start operations in the20th century. In 1930, the newly elected state government of New South Wales, led by Premier Jack Lang,decided the only course of action to solve the critical funding situation in the state's hospitals wasto start a State Lottery. This was during the Great Depression. Money was scarce andunemployment stood at 30%. There had been a major influenza epidemic 10 years previously andit was feared that the hospitals would not be able to cope with another. It was believed that thehope of winning the lottery would essentially cause the general public to fund the hospitals. As had happened in the U.S., the announcement created a political storm. The opposing politicalparties joined forces with the churches to condemn the decision. It was said that "Lotteries are eviland degrading" and that "It is going to demoralize the youth of our State." On the 22nd of June, 1931, the Lotteries Act was proclaimed, with a former Commissioner ofTaxation appointed the first Director of State Lotteries. In August, the pavements were filled aspeople queued for more than three blocks outside the State Lottery Office to enter the first lottery.All were hopeful of winning the lottery. Her Majesty's Theater in Pitt Street was hired for the draw. Early in 1932, three special lotteries, with a first prize of the then unheard of sum of 20,000 pounds(A$40,000) were introduced to mark the opening of the Sydney Harbor Bridge. In November 1957, tickets in Opera House Lottery No. 1 went on sale to finance the building of theSydney Opera House. The first prize was 100,000 pounds (A$200,000). It wasn't until the 1990s that national lottery games were introduced in Australia. Now there areseveral to choose from, with at least A$13 Million (US$13.2 Million) being paid out every week.This payout is 60% of the total lottery earnings, which compares favorably with 45% in mostEuropean lotteries and 50% in most North American lotteries. In addition, 5% is taken from theprize pool of every draw and added to the prize pool for the Superdraw that takes place 4 or 5times a year. Jackpots of up to A$30 Million (US$30.5 Million) are not uncommon. Jackpot drawsincrease enormously the number of players planning on winning the lottery. Mark Sterling is a successful systems lottery player.
