Lottery Online is an online lottery website where players can play the multi-state Powerball and Mega Millions lottery games. These websites operate legally in the United States and use geolocation technology to ensure that all customers are located within state lines. In addition, they offer the same prizes and odds as traditional state-run lotteries and do not violate UIGEA or other federal laws. They also act as bookmakers and take bets on the outcomes of popular lotteries from around the world.
The first mover in the US was Illinois, which launched its online lottery platform in 2011. Since then, most states have followed suit and now offer their own state-based online lotteries. They often feature a unified ticketing system that allows players to buy tickets on the same platform for both single-game and multi-draw purchases. Many also allow players to purchase subscriptions for weeks, months or a full year at a time.
In addition to offering the latest lottery games, reputable online lotteries also provide plenty of promotions and convenience features. For example, players can often sign up for an account for free, choose a game and pick their numbers, or have the site automatically select their numbers for them (via Quick Pick options). They can also use an app to buy lottery tickets on the go and increase their chances of winning by purchasing shares in public lottery pools or buying bundles that offer discounts. Some sites even allow players to store their payment details for future purchases.
