According to Wikipedia, "The Italian lottery was operated, as a racket for the American Mafia... Numbers game, also known as a numbers racket, policy racket, or Italian lottery is an illegal lottery played mostly in poor neighborhoods in the United States, wherein a bettor attempts to pick three digits to match those that will be randomly drawn the following day. In recent years, the 'number' would be the last three digits of 'the handle' - the amount race track bettors placed on race day at a major racetrack - published in racing journals and major newspapers in New York. A gambler places a bet with a bookie at a tavern or other semi-private place that acts as a betting parlor. A runner carries the money and betting slips between the betting parlors and the headquarters, called a numbers bank or policy bank. The name 'policy' is from a similarity to cheap insurance, both seen as a gamble on the future."
Now, players worldwide can join in the fun and excitement of a big payout, daily lottery. Mafia Lottery Online lets players wager any amount they like by betting on a combination of 2 lucky digits, 0/0 to 9/9. Every hour, the Mafia Lottery server randomly selects a winning combination, and players are paid immediately. In cases where more than one player is a winner, the Prize Fund is divided among the winners in proportion to the amount of their bet.
The app keeps track of all the stats, including selected numbers, bet amounts, results, and winners. Also available is a complete table of all winning numbers, the Prize Fund for each number, and the total number of winners.
