I've seen in alot of posts that some use online lottery sites.  Would anyone be willing to share what sites are the best.  It's always scary to put money into a site without first knowing others experiences with them.  Thanks for sharing.

       I think I understand the reasoning behind this rule and even though I'm not up for online gambling myself, I normally would think this would be the place to find answers to some questions people may have. e.g. Is there reputable site offering lottery gambling or What precautions should be taken if I was to gamble online?

       Seriously, not trying to break the rules ,but is there away to have the conversation without breaking them? Just to protect anyone interested in doing it? It's crossed my mind before since i'm epilteptic and dont get around as easily as others. I'm lucky and have someone and do get out everyday, but one day I may not. Then what?

       I know it's not LP's responsibility to provide the information for the protection of people wanting to gamble online but it would be a very kind service to allow a forum on the discussion while not allowing the use of particulair sites.

        I don't see any problem with discussing what sites are legitimate and what sites are not for lottery gambling..We need to be educated in order to choose wisely!

         

        If a lottery site was financially risky for me to use, I sure wouldn't mind knowledge about it beforehand..!I Agree!

              USAMega (LP sister page with a link on the left of this page), has an online site where lotteries can be played.  I'm sure other sites would love to have the free advertisement that an open discussion about them could generate.  In the past, people joined LP just to freely promote their own websites which didn't help anyone but themselves.

                  You can use a regular credit card too.

                  To try it, go to www.usamega.com, and click on the game of your choosing in the marketplace section on the right side.  Go through the purchase process all the way through payment, and see how easy it is.

                    the Ohio classic lotto is looking real good right now. I have a cousin living in Ohio, maybe I can get her to buy me some tickets. Anyone know if I have to pay the 6 percent Ohio state income tax if I win? Oh well, I probably won't have to worry about it, 14 million to one says I won't win.

                          betslips doesn't offer  the games I want to play, the ohio classic lotto and the canadian 6/49. Both are a 1 in 14 million odds and their jackpots are over $20 mil.

                            When the law went into effect that made internet gambling illegal in the United States, Todd stopped promoting and allowing discussion of those services.  Yes, some people still use them, but those of us that don't wish to break the law are keeping an eye on HR2267.  If it passes, then perhaps we can go back to betting online. My bank and the 3 credit unions that I belong to stopped accepting money destined for any of the betting services.  They also would not allow the money I had already won be transfered to me.  I had a heck of a time getting my money, but I did.  I had to pay a premium to get it, but it was better than not having my money.

                              what happened to betslips?

                              Nothing happened to Betslips, as far as I know.  I checked out the new site and was very happy with everything, including the vast selection of games, the price, the payment options, and the ability to get a scanned image of the purchased ticket.  When I evaluate a service, the most important factor is assurance that the ticket was purchased, and I don't think it gets better than that.

                              As for the comment earlier about them only taking Amex, I know that's just very wrong.  They have a lot of different payment options, which is another reason I like them.  They are easy to do business with.

                              So, if you're up for this kind of thing, or curious to see how it works, go to www.usamega.com, and click one of the colorful marketplace liks/blocks on the right.

                              The first order is totally free -- they refund the entire price back to you.  So I'm not sure what the risk is in trying.

                              P.S. Powerball is now over $100 million -- a great time to check it out.
