    It depends on who you ask.  It's illegal to resell a lottery ticket,  mail or send by any commercial method lottery chances* across state lines, and illegal to charge a fee for crossing state lines to buy a ticket for someone. Plenty of people believe that those laws don't prohibit somebody from charging a fee for the service of buying a ticket if they don't cross a state line to do so. Other people apparently think those laws do make it illegal to charge a fee for buying somebody a ticket.

    *Before the drawing, a ticket is a chance to win. After the drawing it's either a winner or a loser. It's no longer a chance, and can then be mailed legally.

      Whatever you do, just don't make any purchases from a site called "the lotter".  They don't actually buy any tickets.  You might as well burn your money.

       

      Check the State Lottery Report Card
      What grade did your lottery earn?

        If you decide to burn your money, please make sure it's in a well ventilated area.

          Don't waste your time burning your money, your govenment is already doing it for you!

          If you have to burn it thou at least get one of those big metal garbage cans and burn it out side of the house you will be tossed out of after foreclosure.

            I feel ify towards a lot of places that sell online tickets. I know people have been paid for wins, but I would still be afraid that if I bought a ticket online and won a huge jackpot like Mega Millions, then I would never see the money. So I just end up sticking to my states lottery. I know that if I buy the ticket and it's a winner, that I will have the money in my hands.

                I Agree!

                Only feel safe if I can see and hold the ticket.

                Money won is twice as good as money earned!

                  Ok I appericate all the answers and feedback. Still really no one has answered my question. I know we can play the lottery online. Is it aganist the law. Will I have someone knocking at my door if I deicde to play? Even this site has a ad for a site where you can play. My favirute game to play is the pick 3. I would never even think about plating the Mega Millions online.

                   

                  Thanks again
