Lottery online is an ever-growing area of the gaming space. Many lottery buyers, especially those in the US, now buy tickets for both national and international games online. Some even buy the big Powerball draw which has jackpots in the hundreds of millions. Online ticket buying has also made it possible to play the lottery from the comfort of your own home, office, football stadium or local pub.
As a result, there are now more lottery winners than ever before. While super-sized jackpots are what attract most people to the game, there are lots of smaller prizes and other fun stuff to be had as well.
Some online lottery sites offer subscriptions which automatically purchase tickets for you on a weekly or monthly basis. These can be a great option in case you’re not able to buy tickets regularly and are looking for a convenient way to keep playing. Just make sure you’re dealing with a legitimate company and stick to the official lottery website, as there are a number of scammers out there.
Most state-based online lottery games operate very similarly to traditional paper tickets. However, some of the top-rated lottery games include optional extras such as Power Play or Megaplier which can add significant increases to your winnings. These can be activated for just $1 more than the cost of a standard ticket and are a great way to boost your odds of winning the big prize. It’s important to remember that different games have slightly different rules, so if you’re new to the game it may take some time to get used to them. Fortunately, most lottery websites-particularly the best ones-offer quick how-to’s or tutorials for each of their available games.
