There are a growing number of states that offer online lottery sales, subscription services, and online scratch card-style games. In a few cases, even bingo and instant win games are available.
Legal Online Lotteries
Many of these games use geolocation technology to ensure that customers are located within state lines. Attempts to purchase lottery tickets from outside the state will be automatically blocked.
Lottery Tickets for Local and National Gamedraws
The best way to play a lottery is by visiting an official online lottery website. This allows you to buy tickets and claim winnings without the risk of fraud.
In addition, most sites are authorised by the state and can only sell tickets that you’ve purchased through their official vendors. This helps to protect you against scams and makes it easier to verify the legitimacy of a ticket.
Online Lottery Games
The first states to embrace online lotteries were Illinois and Georgia, which began selling tickets to daily and jackpot games in 2012. These are the same games you’d buy at a physical lottery retailer, only with added convenience.
The Florida Lottery recently launched a new draw game called “Cash Pop.” Players pick numbers from 1 to 15, and pay $1, $2 or $5 per number. Five drawings are held every day, and prizes range from 5 to 250 times the play amount for each number drawn.
Online Scratch Cards
The Georgia Lottery offers a collection of online scratch card games that pay out prizes as high as $150,000. Top prizes can be claimed online and can also be collected in person if the prize is over $50,000.
