What is Online Lottery?

Online Lottery

Online Lottery is when you purchase tickets via the internet for state-level lottery games, multi-state lottery games (such as Powerball and Mega Millions), or even instant win scratch-off cards. The rules for these games vary, but most online lottery sites offer quick how-to’s or tutorials that help new players understand the rules and gameplay.

Whether you’re looking to buy a single ticket or an entire subscription, you’ll be able to do it all from your desktop or mobile device. You can also check winning numbers, see past results, and extend your subscription all from your computer or smartphone. The best online lotteries will charge you the same price that you would pay in person, and do not add on any extra fees to your order.

Although some people may worry about the impact of online lottery sales on traditional lottery sales, this is largely unfounded. In Pennsylvania, where PA iLottery launched in 2018, traditional lottery game sales have consistently increased each year since. The same is true for many other states that have legalized online lottery games.

A few states have offered online lottery subscriptions for some time now, and the District of Columbia has just started offering its full lineup of iLottery games in 2021. Its collection of games features titles from IWG, including Doublin’ Doubloons and Prospector’ Jackpots.
