Is the online lottery tied in with the lottery of that State.

I would think that The State holds the license and the Rights to thier numbers, so does the online stores need to be tied in to the State lottery also.

So anyone wanting to run online would need to share profits with the state,

example in order for any online lottery site sell Western Canada number, would they not need a license from that state? In order to do so, anf if they do then all numbers sold would be registered at the state computer?

That would explain a lot of things.

    Amazing Grace.......I don't believe that the online sites actually place any bets with the states.  They operate more like a casino, hoping to make a profit off the people that lose, and not to have to pay a lot out to winners.  Therefore, no contract needed with the states since they are not actually selling lottery tickets.

    Good Luck!

      That sounds true since their are restrictions on how wagers can be placed

      They are covering the bets themselves

        I think Todd covered this once before, I think it goes something like this, they let you "name your posion" and use that state's numbers (whatever state you picked.)

        Not too different than before state lotteries "The Outfit", AHEM!, used the last three dollar digits of the racetrack's mutual handle for the daily number. They had nothing at all to do with the racetrack AHEM, and in fact rotated tracks to prevent any funny business with the results.

        Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

        Lep

        There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.
