Online Lottery

Online lottery is a type of gambling where you place bets on numbers to win prizes. It is similar to betting on sports events, but you have a much better chance of winning big sums of money.

Almost all state lotteries have online lottery games that you can play on your computer or mobile phone. In some states, you can even set up a subscription to purchase tickets automatically on a recurring basis. Just visit your state’s official lottery website and look for a “subscriptions” link somewhere.

The biggest online lottery sites offer hundreds of different instant-win games. The jackpots on these games range from a minimum of $20,000 to a maximum of $300,000 for scratch-type games like Pennsylvania Keystone Cash and Jungle Tumble Jackpots, and up to $500,000 for Keno games like Bullseye Keno Multiplier. Some online lottery sites have dedicated apps that are designed to run more quickly on mobile devices.

When selecting an online lottery site, be sure to look for one that is licensed by a recognized gaming authority and accepts your preferred banking methods. Also, check out how long the site has been in business – a long history is usually a good sign.

In addition to state-licensed online lottery sites, there are also a number of independent operators that offer online lottery games and betting on sports events. While they aren’t officially endorsed by any of the major lottery games, these independent operators do offer competitive odds and prizes, and they are usually backed by insurance policies that pay out jackpot winnings.
