    Virginia Lottery lets you set up a subscription from their website (you have to have a checking account and instate mailing address - same as all the other state lotteries that I've seen offer subscriptions), but they only offer subscriptions for the Mega Millions and the Win For Life games. I have a subscription for each - and it's nice because I always know I have a shot at each of them. They send reminder emails out early enough that I can renew long before they run out. I wish they'd offer subscriptions for all their games. It's really no different than buying tickets for multiple draws at a retailer, but, there's definitely no question I purchased the subscriptions if I need as losses for tax reasons, lol, or, for that matter, I don't have to worry about the Patels telling me my ticket's a loser or someone trying to claim my prize. =P VA Lottery doesn't charge anything extra over the cost of the ticket to set up the subscription either, and they'll call me if I win anything over $600 - and since VA requires you go public and even do a press conference for the larger prizes, it's not like I'm going to remain anonymous from them (though I'd want to if were an option). I've never bought lotto tickets anywhere else online and wouldn't - I certainly wouldn't pay for surcharges.

      Its so NOTcool for the Government to feel like they have to babysit adults.

      People spend thousands of dollars a year on on-line pornographic materials, I have no problem with the way one chooses to spend their hard earn dollars spend it on line, in line, what difference does it make?  u cant take it with you so enjoy it while you still have all your facultities to make your own decisions.

      MN get off the gas. $50.00 a week is just to make the skeptics feel like you are doing something right, people are spending 100's of $$$ at the stores buying instant tickets.
