Online Lottery Explained

Online Lottery Explained

If you’re interested in playing the lottery togel hk but don’t have the time to drive, fly or ride trains to purchase tickets, online lottery is your answer. It allows you to play multiple national and international lotteries from the comfort of your home, office or local pub.

Buying Tickets Over the Internet

There are many ways to purchase lottery tickets over the internet, but the most convenient is via legal online lottery courier services like Jackpocket. These ticket couriers buy tickets from authorized retailers on behalf of their customers, and are allowed by many states.


A handful of US states offer lottery subscriptions that allow you to purchase lottery tickets automatically on a recurring basis. These subscriptions typically run weeks, months or a year.

Where to Play

In addition to the popular national lotteries, most US states have their own in-state games and instant win options. These include scratch tickets and drawing-style games with large jackpots.

The first state to offer online lotteries was Illinois, which launched a pilot program in March 2012. It added Powerball and Mega Millions online lottery tickets in December 2012, and expanded the website to include daily lottery games and instant games.

The US Department of Justice ruled in 2011 that the Wire Act did not apply to lottery sales, which cleared the way for a number of states to launch their own online lottery programs. However, some opponents of online lottery sales claim that they cannibalize traditional game sales. Despite these concerns, sales of Pennsylvania’s PA iLottery have continued to grow every year since the program launched in 2018.
