Playing the Lottery Online

If you live in one of the seven US states where you can play the lottery online, you can take advantage of the convenience and safety of the web. You can choose from a variety of lotteries and games, including Mega Millions, Pick-4 and Powerball.

Some websites offer bonuses and promotions to new customers, which means that you can get a few free games or even a 50% bonus credit. All you need is a good internet connection and some basic information.

The online ticket purchase process is similar to purchasing a regular lotto ticket. You add funds to your account and then select the type of ticket you want to buy.

Several state-run lotteries have established their own websites. Among them is the Michigan Lottery. It has been offering online lottery sales since January 2016. In March 2016, online ticket sales hit $8 million a week.

Online lottery subscriptions give players the opportunity to purchase tickets for every drawing. Pricing varies depending on the number of drawings you wish to participate in. Many sites also offer payment methods such as debit cards, Mastercard, PayPal, and Visa.

When you are buying a ticket for the lottery online, make sure you are playing from a reputable website. This will ensure that your prize will be paid out. There are several sites that are based offshore, but they are unregulated in the US.

The first legal US online lottery was offered in Minnesota. But the state legislature voted in 2015 to terminate its lottery program.
