    I've never heard of any Mega Millions or Powerball, though I suppose there is a slight chance that a winner accepting via trust could have been from out of the country (though it seems usually those winners actually identify themselves and only used a trust because it was a group win).

     

    I imagine there are at least a couple major winners of Pick 3, 4 or 5 from Canada, but with your location I assume you mean non-North America winners, which again I've never heard of any. Maybe someone else here who pays more attention to those games can answer with more certainty.

            Although I'm a dual national , when I was in United Kingdom , I played Euro Millions and no one told me I couldn't buy a ticket . I grew up in the US so everyone knew I was a US citizen . In fact no one knew I also hold British citizenship.

            Seems if you are a non US winner winning in the US, you should be able to collect. In Va , when the lottery started , one of the first tickets went to an Australian group if I remember right .

             

             Good Luck,

            Blackie.

              You'd probably have to come here to claim it, unless you have another group do it for you.

               

              I guess it depends, but it may be hard to get to the US from Iran, at least I'd assume so, because tensions are pretty high between the two nations from what I can tell.  (I think that we embargoed Iran, in which case I'd think there'd be travel restrictions.)

                  Welcome to the Lottery Post  lucky-luke......I don't know if there has been any non-us resident winniers of the Mega Millions or Powerball seeing that you have so many winners that claim with a Tust it's hard to tell.

                    The amount of Federal taxes withheld is the only difference between a non resident and a resident winning.

                      I'm not sure about 4 5 picks on MM or Powerball..... Not exactly sure about her residency status but a lady from Chile named Maria Grasso won $197 Million in The Big Game(What MM was called previously)...........Another lottery winner Ishan Khan was a Pakistani man who won the Powerball for $55 Million he was a dual US and Pakistani citizen.   So it could happen.....GOOD LUCK!

                        I am from Canada and the lotto group I organize won $10,000 a couple of years a ago. The US dollar was worth much more than the Canadian dollar at the time making the win even bigger.

                              It looks like you inquired about a "butler" service that will buy the tickets for players in other countries. Most of the answers in this thread were about foreign players buying tickets in the USA, not outside while here on a visit or an extended stay and they will collect the winnings. A "butler" service would buy the tickets for you but all bets are off with any guarantee of collecting all the jackpot winnings if you happened to win.

                              I don't know the legalities, but I wouldn't take a chance of sending money to a group of strangers.
