Thanks for posting this Todd.  Will never know if my suggestion as a news story was the reason for posting this informative article.

 

One fine day I'll be going to Kentucky Lottery Headquarters on Main St to get the big one.  Not too far from where I work @ the PICU a few miles away--a very sad job.

 I remember years ago going there to buy tickets and the security guard there said they don't sell tickets.  Wish they did, Massachusetts does, not that I've ever visited their headquarters (yet).

 

Now I see a five dollar bonus is even more incentive to give this a try.

And yes, of course you must be a KY resident to play on line, thanks to that old antiquated 1961 federal law I keep harping on.

Hey there Jeffrey! Great to hear you work so close to our HQ here in Louisville. I'm sorry we don't sell tickets in our lobby, but (as I'm sure you well know) there are lots of retailers downtown here that carry our games. Enjoy that $5 bonus and give the website a try - we'd love to know what you think about it. And we'll look forward to your visit to our HQ someday, hopefully on the right end of a four-foot-long check with your name on it!

    Will 5 minute Keno be offered online?

    No plans for it at this time - thanks for asking though!

      Yes, we do. Used to be Chip P  Some people here don't believe lottery officials belong to LP. Well, here's your proof.

      Now, have you ever wondered why the numbers or systems that you've used successfully for a long time, and then decided to share, suddenly stop working completely within a week or two? 

      Guess what?    Lurking and  Hiding Behind Computer   and there goes your winnings...   See Ya!

      Hey there - this is Chip. Don't let anyone tell you lottery officials aren't on Lottery Post. This site is one of the best around in terms of taking the pulse of engaged players, and we absolutely want to hear what you're saying. In fact, Todd (the site's founder) came to a meeting of lottery PR folks last year to pitch everyone on the site. I've been telling my colleagues for years how Lottery Post is a great venue to gauge what players are saying. I'm a believer!

        Thank you, that really brightened my day.  I will give it a try, nothing ventured, nothing gained as the old saying goes.  i'd love to be holding one of those four foot long checks, and you could put it on LP/FB!

          I tried with two different credit cards and it would not accept either one of them.  Entered each carefully twice and the site did not work.  Please have your IT dept fix this!!

           

          Thanks,

            Found out today that five minute Keno tickets are now sold in all the stores selling lottery tickets.

              Jeffrey:

               

              Sorry I'm just now seeing your post. Give our customer service folks a call at 877-789-4532 and hopefully they can help. According to our IT staff, credit cards can be linked - however there are requirements about being able to validate that the card being linked is owned by the account holder. Billing information must match the account holder's address. Please give them a call to see if they can help. Also - don't forget you can also buy vouchers at your local retailer to play online, and when you spend $20 we'll give you an extra $5 in credit!

                This sound great  .  Again another state who want to increase it profit margin
                limit the accounts to residents in the state only. I don't believe they consider
                or think about tourism or people that live on their border line that cross over
                to purchase lottery tickets. If they just expand  their thinking a little, buyers of your tickets that live on the border line would find this service a great plus.

                It's the other way around; the Federal wire act prohibits online state lottery sales outside their state borders. There is also Federal laws prohibiting mailing lottery tickets. The LP member who talks about the Massachusetts subscriptions list Australia as residence so it's probably a different process when U.S. players purchase tickets.

                If the state lotteries that are now offering Online sales could legally sell outside their borders, they would.
