This series contains records from the Lotteries Branch, a division of the Ministry of Provincial Secretary that was established by the Lotteries Act in May, 1974. The Branch was the licensing authority for bingos, lotteries, and other forms of social gambling in the Province. The Branch also administered the Western Canada Lottery Foundation in B.C., a co-operative lottery run in conjunction with the provinces of Manitoba, Saskatchewan, and Alberta. This series consists of newspaper clippings collected by the Branch between 1978 and 1983. The clippings deal with lottery winners and other lottery-related news.
