    I just noticed that PTS now uses the Verified by Visa during their credit card processing, so I'll bet most people could get their credit cards to work now.  Chewie, you should give it another try.

            I used Prime Ticket. There for awhile I was getting the power ball every time! I joined to play Mega Millions because it's not offered here, but played PB with my winnings. Then decided it would be cheaper to go down the street and just buy my own. Haven't touched a powerball since. Go figure.

              It took three tries, but it finally accepted the charge.  It declined once, then timed out in Spain, then worked.  Hopefully it is permenant.

              Cheers

                Hurray!  Yeah!!  Looks like they fixed the credit card problem they were having. The difference is that the website wasn't even trying to reach the bank before, now it works. Glad my order sneaked in before the deadline which must be pretty soon. Look forward to doing more business with them if it rolls (as unlikely as that is). Much cheaper than going to Europe and getting them. This way I only have to go to Europe if I win Wink

                  OK I was just able to place an order with PTS and I did get my confirmation email.  Someone asked earlier about cost of flying to Europe, well from Detroit to London England it's about 3,000 for economy amd 6,000 for First Class.  Those dollar amounts are for next week so are at a premium because of timing.  Heck if you win that kind of money buy the whole first class cabin and party all the way there and back with your buddies.  Good Luck to all who purchased ticketsBig Smile

                    Unfortunately, I am a US citizen.  However, I'm here in the UK to get married and remain here.

                    Perhaps if the numbers hit, maybe I would claim it anonymously or have my fiance (who is Swedish citizen and EU national) claim the prize, thus, it will remain tax-free. Maybe create a trust in her name and I'd be the sole executor, before moving back to the US. Who knows?

                    But the IRS wouldn't know who if I'd won or better yet, they have no authority to tax her.  Cool huh!

                    Good luck to all with PB ($101 million). 

                    Does anyone have any numbers they want me to play for them?

                          Just put my order through.  Mastercard was declined.  Visa accepted.

                          Good luck on the drawing tomorrow afternoon!

                            This was a posting once before on LP but it was deleted. If it had been left alone so the membership could see it, you all would have known it was being implemented! But that didn't happen! So here it is without my bad mouthing PTS like before, that caused it to be deleted in the first place!

                            We have been assured by our credit card bank processors that as of 7 P.M. US Eastern 13 January 2006, the glitch in their system that was preventing some customers from processing their orders has been corrected.

                            We have, indeed, noticed a significant increase in successful processing since that time.

                            However, some credit card members may still not be able to process their orders because they may not have signed up with the new "3-D" security features of their credit card providers.

                            This means the following for various members:

                            For Visa card Holders, they may need to contact their credit card providers and request information on activating their card with "Verified By Visa" .

                            For MasterCard Holders, they may need to contact their credit car providers and request information on activating their card with "MasterCard Secure" .

                            We recommend that you follow either of the above suggestions to get your card activated with it's 3-D security feature.

                            Even after some customers have attempted these solutions, they may still not be able to process because their banks may not be 3-D ready yet or their bank does not allow charges associated with "gambling" websites.

                            We are, however, investigating other payment solutions for those customers who may still be prevented from ordering.

                            Thank you!

                            Keep dreaming the impossible dream, it just may come true! Thumbs Up
