Stack were you another group they pay to go to the next gas station to get that ticket? People with logical minds should know that the transaction was made online and then made by walking into a random deli to get the the measly amount of what the original ticket's worth because it was charged triple,  I would gladly pay for that if I was extended the same right and here is why I think US citizen should have that same right if they choose to do that transaction online, I could care less if the person who win regardless of color or race we all should be able to buy from a country we're from if it was offer to other people.

    My only fear is that could our lotteries now support and help terrorist and their causes. I know that there is no way to tell but this really makes me wonder what the hell we are doing here.

      "To me, it looks more odd that a Baghdad, Iraq resident won an Oregon Lotto jackpot and obviously very logical people have questions. The article doesn't mention religion so any assumptions about prejudices is yours."

      C'mon Mister...Baghdad is not a place where you'd find Southern Christians...! You know and I know that we have overtly and covertly prejudices in our country..Puhleez, spare me from your "assumption theory"....

        What an absurd statement...! Wow..! This NY Mr. You Are Fired has really brainwashed you and a small segment of our society with his venom. Now I believe how Jim Jones convinced thousands of people in Guyana to drink cyanide. Those were people like you who believe everything you see or hear from television..! We are doomed..!

          Paranoid personality disorder (PPD) is a mental disorder characterized by paranoia and a pervasive, long-standing suspiciousness and generalized mistrust of others. Individuals with this traits may be hypersensitive, easily feel slighted, and habitually relate to the world by vigilant scanning of the environment for clues or suggestions that may validate their fears or biases. Paranoid individuals are eager observers. They think they are in danger and look for signs and threats of that danger, potentially not appreciating other evidence.

          The article was about online gambling with the ticket bought in person ( I presume lotter has offices or affiliates), so how do we end up with this twisted and convoluted ' conspiracy theories' of lottery funding terrorist?. The world is connecting, Lp epitomized this with members from every country, change is always hard for some folks.Everybody or most people are aware of online site where you can wage P3,P4 from any country, US included . The question that should be posed, is why the restriction for US citizens on lotter site? Why can't you wage pick 3 online even within the US?

            Maybe not because there is a possible conspiracy theory; the Oregon drawing is RNG, Tipton sold his "self destruct" program to someone in Oregon who rigged the drawing so the prize money would go to a terrorist organization (don't let the 20 year payments fool you). Wink

              We know someone purchased a large number of Oregon Lotto tickets for <snip>. at an Oregon Lottery retailer. And a guy from Baghdad, Iraq showed up at Oregon Lottery headquarters with a jackpot winning ticket. The Oregon Lottery didn't sell the ticket online, the ticket wasn't bought online, and from their perception there was nothing different than another lotto winner.

              "I think US citizen should have that same right if they choose to do that transaction online, I could care less if the person who win regardless of color or race we all should be able to buy from a country we're from if it was offer to other people. "

              I agree, but it might take years before we get National and the same International online gaming other countries now enjoy.

                  I posted this to the previous article about the Oregon lotto, and yes I did check my source and chatted with someone in the Lotter.  And so US laws does not allow its citizen to purchase online why does that courtesy apply to other countries? 

                  The LOtter only allows customers to buy if they ARE NOT from the USA.  If you try to register from the states you will not able to get pass log in.   I don't know why Lottery Post even put their banner to support them if it's only for foreigners and not for disable citizens or someone who want the internet convenience - sounds very fishy to me.  If someone from Iraq could buy a ticket online, I feel I should have that right to purchase tickets online and have the same opportunity as a customers like all the customers from the foreign countries especially since I am from this country!  LOTTER --- SOME KIND OF FOREIGN MONEY LAUNDERING BUSINESS- VERY VERY VERY FISHY !!!  I'm not a hater but I think business both online or offline  should expand the same rights to all customers.  I hope someone will start a petition to ban them.  If other countries citizens can buy from the US, we should be able to buy from them as well  wouldn't you think?

                  And as for the person who stated about the bank transaction to register if its legal they would put it on their website now wouldn't they?

                    You are beating a dead horse. This ONLINE thing is stuck in your head. If your friend/family abroad wants you to buy them tickets{PBALL/MM} and are willing to pay you for your troubles, are you going to say NO?. Like I said before, when you get to My Account, click on Banking and you can see a crapload of ways to pay. I tried to post some stuff but was zapped by ADMIN computer. Stop the hysteria.

                      "And how on earth would a lottery ticket from Binky's, of all places, end up in the possession of a man from halfway around the world?"

                      I could understand if it was the Wyoming or another relatively new state lottery, but someone at the Oregon Lottery should know about lottery butler services. The legality is interesting because the winning ticket never left the U.S. and the butler service charged their fee up front.

                      IMO, as for granting anonymity, any future Megabucks jackpot winner now has a claim. Opinions aside, there is no Oregon law preventing butler services from buying and selling tickets or paying foreign players.

                        Agree 100%, if one of my English relatives whom I've never met wanted a PB/MM ticket it would be done.  I wish the Dept of Justice would turn a blind eye to the 1961 law forbidding sales of lottery tickets over the phone and now I suppose Internet.  You know it takes the government years for any progress.  Frankly I'm surprised they had to give in and put forms, etc on-line.  They had no choice.

                        As an ACLU member years ago I e-mailed them about this saying I perceive this as a violation of my First Amendment rights...their response...None!  I figured what the heck, seems like everyone and their Mother's Son is on the bandwagon stating this is wrong, that is wrong and it was my turn to rant.

                         

                        Back the subject, it was not purchased on-line, a physical person walked in and bought the winning ticket.  I don't give a rat's behind where the owner of the ticket came from, his/her religion/nationality what have you.  Does it affect anyone here:  NO.

                         

                        Remember to get your Mega Millions/Powerball tickets....tomorrow is the big 60 for me and $74 million would be a nice way so say good riddance to the decade of being in the 50's.

                          I wonder if any questions would have been asked if the winner had arrived from London, Paris or Tel Aviv..!Our prejudices against Muslims show up even at the most unexpected places..Give the winner his money and let cry babies keep on crying..! Let us not change "goal posts" or rules whenever "others" who we'd prefer not to win - become winners..

                          Why, yes, actually, when people from foreign countries have won in the past they have been questioned like this.  In fact, this Iraqi was provided special dispensation by the Oregon Lottery, allowing him to claim the jackpot anonymously, whereas any US citizen -- or likely anyone from London, Paris, or Tel Aviv -- would not have been afforded the same benefit.

                          So the "goal posts" were in fact changed for this guy -- to his benefit.

                          Progressives are always so quick to point their wagging fingers at people to condemn them.  Probably to mask the fact that their own ideology by definition tries to shut down the free exchange of ideas, especially the ideas that are different from their own, all in an attempt to impose their doe-eyed view of the world on everyone.  That is bigotry and tyranny.

                            I read a statistic that over 97% of Iraqis are Muslims so it's not really a leap to assume the Oregon lotto jackpot winner from Iraq probably followed Islam. I also read there are 828 million Hindus in India so it's very likely a similar jackpot winner from some regions in India would be a Hindu.

                            You can call it religious prejudices, but it's just the same old jackpot envy we see when an average American wins a jackpot.
