I'm new to this board, so I'm sorry if this topic has been covered. I did do some searching, but haven't seen anything completely conclusive regarding my question. Basically I was looking into buying some Mega Millions tickets online either from Betslips or Prime Ticket Service (I live in Florida). I was a bit taken aback when I visited Prime Ticket Service which is now stating (when you click on the Play button):
To comply with new US legislation, we are not accepting new orders from the United States. We apologize for the inconvenience.
So now to my question, is it legal to purchase tickets from these services or not (or I guess service, from Betslips)?
Also, I realize that some of you have received money from them, but let's just say that you did happen to win the jackpot (because that's what we'd all really like, and you never know). What recourse would you have if they didn't produce the cash? Are you convinced that Betslips would hand over millions only keeping 1%? I'm not trying to beat a dead horse here, but I'd really like to know how confident you really are in this site.
All of that may be moot because it looks like using these sites is illegal, at least according to Prime Ticket Service.
Just looking for advice as to whether to go forward with setting up Click2Pay and taking the plunge.
Thanks all for your input!
