If you’ve ever wanted to win the lottery but were intimidated by the odds, you can now play the lottery online. There are a number of ways to play the Lottery online, including using ACH/eCheck and PayPal to deposit and withdraw funds. If you’re a MegaMillions player, for example, you can use the Jackpocket app to buy tickets from the National Lottery. If you’re looking to win the megamillions jackpot, MegaMillions is a multi-state lottery available for purchase in 45 states, Washington DC and the US Virgin Islands. The jackpot can reach over $1 billion.
The Wire Act prohibits lottery sales over the phone, and it’s unclear whether selling lottery tickets online is legal or not. The law prohibits sports betting on telephones, and many legislators have interpreted “telephonic means” to include the internet. The old dial-up modem days were considered “telephonic means,” and the Wire Act has long impacted the debate over selling lottery tickets online in the United States.
Subscription options let you subscribe to a particular lottery, which is particularly useful if you’re a single player. Subscribers can set up recurring purchases of tickets, for a week, a month, or even a year. Once they’re subscribed, they can buy tickets for themselves or select others and watch the results roll in. The tickets will be checked automatically every week for winning numbers, and if you win, you’ll get a check the following week.
