My question is: Were there any sort of regular lotteries in Russian
society, and (if so) what were they likely to offer in terms of winnings?
I would love to separate out tall tales >from family history here.
Yes. My family has similiar stories. Our story ends a bit different: the
lottory won right around 1917, and soon afterwards the money, now discarded by
the new "Boulshovik" coup, was worthlesss :-(
