dc.description.abstract Two women are complaining about the outcome of the lottery. This print refers to the upcoming decision concerning the prohibition of lotteries on May 21, 1836. It might be of interest to know that lotteries involving money were illegal in France. In order to still play in the lottery, the first prize usually was a gold-bar, representing a value of 400'000 Francs. This way the game was legal and no laws were broken. Lottery involving money only became legal in France in 1933 and the income from the game industry went to the Government. en_US
