Lottery Online in the US

Lottery Online

Several states in the US allow for online lottery ticket sales. They also allow for syndicates and subscriptions, which increase your chances of winning.

North Carolina established its lottery system in 2005. It features three draw games, including Powerball and Mega Millions, as well as in-house draw games. Approximately 30% of lottery revenue goes to the state’s education fund. Those proceeds are used for educational programs, as well as for senior care services and tourism.

West Virginia’s lottery features three draw games, including keno and scratch-offs. The proceeds go to public school construction, as well as to the state’s tourism department.

New York Lotto draws take place every Wednesday evening. Players select six numbers and can opt to have the jackpot paid in a lump sum payment or a single payment plus annual payments. The jackpot is relatively low, but the prize is still significant.

The New Hampshire Lottery started in 1964. Players select five numbers from a pool of 52. This lottery is smaller than other US lotteries, but the jackpots have reached $22 million.

Illinois’ lottery website first introduced online sales in 2012. The website later added Daily Lottery Games and Powerball lottery tickets. The site later expanded to include Instant Games.

Pennsylvania’s lottery does not offer Powerball online. However, Mega Millions tickets can be purchased through Jackpocket, a third-party lottery app. In addition, subscribers can choose their numbers before the draw takes place.

Washington DC’s lottery launched iLottery in February 2021. To play, players must be 18 years of age or older.
