When Italy was united inthe Italian National Lottery Lo Giuoco del Lotto d'Italia was organized, and has been held, almost without pause, at weekly intervals to this date.
Today the Italian State lottery is indispensable to the government's budget, with a yearly contribution in excess of 75 million dollars.
In it was reported in the French press that Le Lotto had captured the fancy of the intelligentsia. In the classic version of Lotto, which developed during this period, the playing card used in the game was divided into three horizontal and nine vertical rows.
Each horizontal row had five numbered and four blank squares in a random arrangement. The vertical rows contained numbers from 1 to 10 in the first row, 11 to 20 in the second row, et cetera, up to No two Lotto cards were alike. Chips numbered from 1 to 90 completed the playing equipment.
Players were dealt a single Lotto card, then the caller would draw a small wooden, numbered token from a cloth bag and read the number aloud.
The players would cover the number if it appeared on their card. The first player to cover a horizontal row was the winner.
In the s educational Lotto games became popular. A German Lotto game of the s was designed to teach children their multiplication tables.

A few miles from Jacksonville, Lowe came around a bend in the road and was greeted by the bright lights of a country carnival. He was ahead of schedule, so he parked his car and got out. All of the carnival booths were closed except one, which was packed with people. Lowe stood on tiptoes and peered over the shoulders of the participants.
The action centered on a horseshoe shaped table covered with numbered cards and beans. The game being played was a variation of Lotto called Beano.
The pitchman, or caller, pulled small numbered wooden disks from an old cigar box and, at the same time, called the number aloud. The players responded by eagerly checking their card to see if they had the number called; if so, they would place a bean on the number.
This sequence continued until some someone filled a line of numbers on their card — either horizontally, vertically or diagonally.Welcome to Muckleshoot Bingo.
