summary: Gambling in one form or another has been part of the fabric of American life for hundreds of years. Early Native American culture had games and language describing gambling and believed their gods determined fate and chance. In addition, European colonists brought a history of gambling to American soil. The British colonization of America was funded partially by lottery proceeds. Later, institutions of higher learning such as Harvard, Yale, and Dartmouth utilized lotteries to help build dormitories and supply equipment, and a lottery even helped pay for a portion of the American Revolution.
