Almost all US states offer lottery games, and some even have their own websites. However, only a handful have approved online lottery ticket sales. Some states are considering expanding their online offerings in the future. In the meantime, the states that have allowed online lottery sales are Michigan, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, and Massachusetts.
Michigan has set the standard for online lottery success. In less than 18 months, online sales of lottery tickets in Michigan reached $8 million. In the same period, the state’s retail lottery broke sales records. In the most recent fiscal year, the CT Lottery contributed $348 million to the state general fund. In addition to supporting the state’s general fund, the lottery also gave out $822 million in prize money.
Michigan’s online lottery also has a collection of instant win scratch cards. These are similar to the scratch-off tickets that are sold at gas stations. Players can purchase tickets online for just a few dollars. Once players have purchased their ticket, they can then check their results on the mobile app. In addition to playing games, players can also enter major multi-state drawings. Some multi-state lotteries also have jackpot games, and some of these jackpot games are available in all 33 states.
The New York state lottery has been around since 1966. It was the second state to implement a state lottery. The lottery has a number of games, including local state games, multi-jurisdictional games, and a few national games. Some of the major games available in New York include Powerball, Mega Millions, Cash4Life, and Lotto. In addition to these games, players can enter state-level drawings from home.
New York State Lottery has a mobile app, as well as an Android and an iOS app. The mobile apps allow players to check the current jackpot amounts, view the map of retailers, and scan their tickets. Users can also check the prize draw results and see the winners of the latest games. In addition to the mobile apps, the New York state lottery also has a website. The website offers a map of retailers, prize draws, and past results.
The New Hampshire iLottery is also available online. Players can choose from a variety of e-Instant games, including Street Fighter II Instant Win, and keno. Keno uses a wheel system device to choose the numbers. The game costs only a few cents to play, and players can win up to $100,000. The game is played from a smartphone or desktop computer. New Hampshire iLottery players have the option of purchasing tickets for major draws and instant win games.
