Buying lottery tickets online can be an easy way to avoid long lines at the lottery office. However, it is also important to know the limits of buying tickets online. For example, if you win a prize of $600 or more, you will need to claim your prize in person.
The legality of online lotteries in the United States is currently unclear. However, states are looking into expanding their online reach. In recent years, eight jurisdictions in the US have introduced legal online lotteries.
The first state to offer online lotteries was Minnesota. This state used to offer online lottery tickets, but its legislature voted to discontinue the lottery program in 2015. In 2016, Minnesota enacted laws that prohibited online lottery ticket sales.
The state of New Hampshire has a new iLottery system that offers instant win games similar to scratch off tickets that can be played online. This state also offers a variety of drawing games. It has a quick pick feature, which allows players to select numbers quickly.
In late 2018, New Hampshire iLottery launched. The system offers tickets to the major drawings, as well as instant win games. In addition, players may purchase tickets for up to 104 consecutive drawings.
The system uses geolocation technology to allow players to buy lottery tickets based on their location. In addition, the site uses internet 2.0 technology to make secure payments. The site also has a number of other features, such as the ability to create groups.
