How to Play the Lottery Online

The concept of lottery online is not a new one. The first US state to offer such an option was Illinois back in 2012. Since then, other states have followed suit – Georgia, Kentucky, Michigan, New Hampshire, New Jersey and Pennsylvania all currently offer their own lottery games online.

Some states also offer online lottery subscriptions that allow you to buy tickets on a regular basis for weeks, months or even a whole year at a time. These packages will automatically purchase your tickets for the next draw, and you can pause or cancel your subscription at any time.

Lottery games vary in how they work, and each one has its own set of rules. Some have a straight pick or a box selection, while others have more complicated rules that require players to choose a specific order of numbers or different combinations of them. Luckily, most lottery websites – the good ones, at least – have quick how-to’s or tutorials that explain each game’s rules.

Unlike traditional lotteries where you can only play the lotteries available in your area, online lotteries give players access to the largest lottery games on a global scale. As a result, jackpots are huge and millions of dollars are up for grabs all the time. Then, it only takes one lucky ticket to win it all and become an instant multi-millionaire – after taxes, of course.
