Over the last several decades, there has been an increasing trend to move away from general prohibition against gambling and to move towards legalizing various forms of gambling. This Article traces the pre-revolutionary roots concerning the law of gambling and breaks the discussion into three types: gaming, lotteries, and wagering. In particular, the discussion focuses on the law and practice of the English prior to 1776 and the law and practice of the Early Colonial Period from 1929-1776. The Author proposes that an understanding of the past is needed in order to reform the law of gambling without succumbing to our past mistakes.
