The bigpowerballpool, megaballpool and email-lotto online lottery sites have been discontinued.

The owner blames the recently enacted anti-gambling law. Refunds are being paid.

Is Betslips next??

            I think the owner is leaving out some important info, and not giving you a true picture.  My sources say that they have had trouble with local authorities for a while -- at least a year or longer.  This stuff about the legislation being the source of problems is a smokescreen.

            There is nothing the new law does to change the legality of using a butler service over the internet.  If it was legal before the new law, then it is still legal after the new law.

                  I was just passing on information I thought would be of interest to the folks here.

                    Hi Bobby,

                    It was no critique of your post, I'm glad you posted that very relevant piece of news.  Very interesting indeed!

                      Wouldn't surprise me if the state lottery goon squad sees the online gambling law as an oppertunity to get rid of pesky competition even when free lottery games should be legal since no money is being used for gambling.  What happens is the state misunderstands and runs up the legal bill till the company is out of business, then too bad so sad they've eaten every one.
