    I chose yes, because, sooner or later, the net will become one of the primary betting places.  Thus, sooner or later, a winner has to be from the internet.  You didn't put a timeline on the question.  Might be 50 years, but it will happen.

    Cheers

      Yes I think there will be an internet winner soon.  ME  This Friday's drawing for Euromillions!! Hurray!

      LOL just kidding around. But I think it will happen sooner or later if the lottery keeps trying to let people play lotto's online.

        I guess it could happen, and by all means it should! But since I live where I can purchase PP tickets and drive 40 miles one-way to get my MM tickets, I don't have to buy lottery tickets online, with one exception the Euro Millions. And if I hit that jackpot, I'll be buying all my tickets online, because I'll be on the move until I choose where I'd like to live the rest of my life!

            If you look at the left side of this screen, you'll see the choices. They're in the green box.

                    Depends what you win.  Win the EuroMillion Biggie, next week, and some one will loan you the airfare.  The passport is you problem.  If you can't figure out how to get a loan, based on a $180M winning ticket, send me the ticket.  I'll do it for you and send you the remains.

                    Cheers

                      Yes, I'm using them for Euro-millions. It's cheaper than flying there. Sure it's expensive at $5 but the tickets are 2.50 in England. As far as wheither I trust them, then yes. I think that they use the UK website to buy the tickets so there are no physical tickets to deal with. Plus I just play my own numbers so I can just check myself to see if I won. They had problems with the billing system but it works fine now. I get my own powerball and megamillions tickets but if I were in Europe and Megamillions finally got big then I'd get tickets for that. It's all about how easy it is to get tickets. I'm just too poor to fly to Europe whenever I feel like it. I'll wait for that if I win the Euro pot.

                          Korean Redneck, I think people here are talking about using a ticket purchasing company like Prime Ticket Service.  Personally I feel safer going to my local store for 2 reasons. (1) I am in possession of the actual ticket and (2) I am using only the cash I can afford, not a credit card.  I've never read about anyone winning a large jackpot from an online service and I'm an internet junkie. Maybe they're very honest, but if you did win millions you'd have to depend on the service to pay up, since the ticket is a bearer instrument. I don't even think you'd have any legal recourse if they didn't.  Again, they've been in business a long time and I've never read anything negative, but it's not for me.  The laws on lottery services aren't very clear either.
