Buying lottery tickets online is becoming more common in the US. However, there are still a few states that do not allow online lottery ticket sales. Some states are considering expanding their online reach.
The first state to offer online lottery ticket sales was Illinois, which launched a pilot program in March 2012. Later, the site added daily lottery games, instant games, and Powerball lottery tickets. It was also the first state to offer online subscriptions.
The Georgia lottery was one of the first states to offer online lottery ticket sales. The site also features instant win scratch cards and keno. The games are available at any time of the day or night.
The North Dakota lottery does not offer in-house games, but offers three multi-state games and Powerball. Players can also purchase tickets online through the official website. The lottery’s proceeds go to gambling treatment and prevention programs.
The Michigan lottery also provides a variety of instant win games. The site’s catalog includes nearly 100 games. Most games have stakes that range from $0.10 to $20. The site supports online pools, which allow users to pool money for bulk ticket purchases.
In addition to lottery games, the site also offers sports betting. New customers can claim two welcome offers: 10 free games and 50% extra bonus credits. The site also offers a quick pick feature to allow players to quickly select lotto numbers.
The Pennsylvania online lottery reported $4 billion in total game sales in the year prior to its launch. In December 2012, the lottery added online Powerball tickets to its website.
