Lottery Online

Lottery online is a great way to play the most popular lottery games, with dozens of state-licensed operators offering a range of options. The best online lottery sites offer a wide variety of payment methods, password protected accounts and SSL encryption software to keep your details safe. They also display licensing details and information about their customer service policies. Unlicensed and dishonest lottery sites are unlikely to care about your experience, so be sure to find one that does.

The most popular online lottery games are draw games, instant games, keno and fast cash games. Some of these games are available to US players, while others require a ticket purchased at an offline retailer in the relevant jurisdiction. In addition to these types of games, there are raffles and daily games. All of these can be played on desktop computers and mobile devices.

When playing a lottery game online, you can select your numbers and the number of draws you wish to participate in. You can also choose optional bets, such as Power Play or Megaplier, for an extra cost that can increase your winnings. You can even play the same numbers in different draws, which is called a consecutive draw.

The first US state to legalize online lottery was Illinois in 2012. Then, Michigan followed suit in 2014, and now New Hampshire, Kentucky, New Jersey and Pennsylvania have joined the ranks of states that allow residents to play the lotto online.
