I was reading on the Powerball website's FAQ and it said that purchasing tickets over the internet is illegal.

It says,"Any Internet lottery site that purports to sell Powerball tickets, or “shares” of        Powerball tickets to purchasers or to run a “service” for        you, are operating illegally. They are not authorized by the Multi-State        Lottery Association or by any U.S. lottery. There are legal Internet        sales of lottery tickets in some countries, but only within the borders        of that country or by agreement between nations. The United States has        no agreements with any other nation to allow lottery tickets sales across        the national border."

 

How are these services like Prime Ticket Service?

Thanks

      Ok, here is what I know....

       

      BAD

      Lottery Universe is a scam - they limit your winnings to 1 million regardless of the jackpot. This company is dumb enough to list their scam on the front page.

            th*e lo*tter.com is a scam - they don't buy real tickets, read Todd's post: http://www.lotterypost.com/news/119441.htm?p=2

       

      GOOD

      Prime ticket service - buys real tickets

      OSA lotto - they have proof of an actual winner from their service but they are more expensive
