Thats bull the feds are always hating.

 

For those of you that dont know that website pays 900-1 on pick 3 and pick 4. An to top it off you can also play for a quarter minimum. Often times ill box 20 double digit pick 3 numbers for a quarter each.  Wagering 5 bucks total with a chance to win 75. 

At the store those same bets would cost $10 and I would win $80.

    And to top that off, now you'll be getting a hefty tax bill from Uncle Sam on the enhanced payouts.

      Wow. This  is what they did when they  shut  down  all  the off shore poker  sites   a  few  yrs  ago  and  seized all  US  players  accts. Hubby  who works  overseas and played  from  there but  was registered as  US player  had a  few hundred  tied up in his  acct  for  a couple of yrs.  There  were no  tax ramifications  because he had never collected winnings.  But  in  deal  feds  made  with off shore  acct  they were forced to make  good- return  balance of  in  his  account--US players . But  took  a  couple of yrs for  it to be  settled.  He no longer plays online.   Sure  hope it  does not go that way  for US online  lotto players. 

       

      Good  luck  all. Lep

          If you never been or played on the site, how can you testify and assume anything. I think we got some LP members working for the FEDS!! You don't have to go to an online site to get cheated or robbed, that can happen at ur local lottery retailer, we here about it all the time. So stop the hating people!! If u don't choose to play online that's ur prerogative!!

                    Todd you are so quick to pounce on this story, I wonder why?.  It's no secret you have it out for 5coins, I bet you couldn't wait to re-post an article such as this.  Your source is bogus, maybe it was a good idea to contact 5coins first to get their side of the story.  This article does nothing but inflames fear amongst US players.  Yes, Bill Frist made online gambling illegal but only for political reasons.  The bottom line is you're in bed with the states because it serves the interest of LP, seems to me that's all you care about.  You have no problem selling memberships here, to help facilitate US players in gambling, there's no problem there.  So, what is the gripe about, if your position is such, that you're somehow protecting US players from being burned I would argue otherwise, you're not. I find you to be nothing but an hypocrite and a tyrant. You don't want anyone copying  LP's ideas but as soon as <snip> went down, you stole their calendar idea.  Now LP have calendars and now since you have them and they no longer around, you want to limit the calendars to only 1 year back, so anyone who wants to look back further than a year, would have to PAY.  LP is for LP only, you care nothing about the players here, so much so that not only for those that do willing pay, can't speak freely on what suppose to be a community board.  Mention one thing about online gambling here you come, doesn't even matter the nature of the conversation. You just disgust me with this article, really.  If anything they should be applauded for actually trying to pay US players but I know you don't see it that way.  Your not a player, you don't purchase tickets, you don't use any of these systems here.  You make your money from selling memberships and ads or whatever else bottom line is you're not a player.  I think you should let the people here draw their own conclusions.

                     

                    Are you going to delete my post and suspend me for speaking my mind?  But, you know what that would mean, it would mean exactly what I posted that you're a tyrant.  I will try to log back on later, I'll see what happens.

                     

                    You have their name even banned, please explain to me how this is a public service, I'll wait

                        It's not tax evasion if you're not winning any money. Even at 900.to 1. Most folks still not winning.   BTW. Don't get ur pressure high concerned about off shore number houses.      It's illegal to receive oral sex in Georgia.  I bet that didn't stop you from receiving it

                              Yup, they pay almost twice as much as any state lotto. They are also one of the most popular web destinations for online gamblers. Feds are just like the cops, they only show up when ur trying to have a good time. Maybe they should pay the Feds with DD gift cards.
