Playing lottery online is relatively new. Previously, there was only one state, Minnesota, that offered online ticket sales. This was later discontinued. Since then, eight jurisdictions have introduced online lotteries.
As of now, there are seven states in the United States that offer online lottery purchases. When 2021 comes around, Washington, D.C. and Puerto Rico will also be in the picture.
In addition to the seven US states that offer online lotteries, there are a number of third-party online services. These can be a good way to purchase tickets, though it is important to read the terms and conditions carefully.
The best online lottery sites are secure and let you compare odds and buy tickets. You will also have access to current jackpots. There are also several draw games available.
For example, the Connecticut Lottery offers the popular Powerball and Mega Millions lottery games. Players can also purchase lottery tickets for other states and the Virgin Islands.
New Hampshire is known for its excellent choice of lotteries. It offers games such as Pick-3 and Pick-4. They are smaller versions of the more powerful lotteries. These draws allow players to select three numbers and can award sums of around $175,000.
BetUS offers a variety of Keno games. They are available for $0.10. Each game has a range of prizes from $10,000 to $100,000.
The North Dakota Lottery also offers online ticket sales. Players can purchase lottery tickets through their website or by downloading an app.
