Online Lotteries in the USA

Online lottery gaming hasn’t caught on in the same way as other gambling options have – for a mix of reasons.
The laws surrounding online lottery gaming were unclear for a long time. Many lawmakers believed that online lotteries would contravene both the Wire Act (1961) and the Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act (2006). However, in recent years, the Department of Justice have clarified the laws relating to lottery gaming. First, the Wire Act only prohibits wagers placed on ‘sporting events or contests’. The UIGEA allows for electronic communication of data generated via legal lottery sales.
This means that online lottery games are now clearly under the jurisdiction of state laws. However, up until now, only a limited number of states have taken the opportunity to offer the chance to enter their lotteries online.
Lottery retailers are a big part of the reason that tickets are not widely available online. These lottery sales ensure that many people visit convenience stores or gas stations. They buy other things during these visits – an important part of the convenience store business model. Moving the lottery online has been met by legal challenges from retailers.
In most states, you can check the winning numbers online. You can also take part in 2nd chance draws – and find out how the money raised by the lottery is spent. A small number of states do allow direct purchase of tickets too.
Buying the tickets online is simple – just hit the ‘Buy Now’ button and you’ll get to choose exactly how you play. The ‘easy pick’ option is the simplest. Here you click to confirm how many tickets you want to buy (for example, when playing the ‘Powerball’, you have instant options of 3, 5 or 10 tickets at the cost of $6, $10 or $20 respectively) and they’ll pick the numbers for you. You can also choose your own numbers. There is a ‘combo my numbers’ option too. This gives you permutations based around your lucky numbers.
