      A little expensive compared to what?  They have to pay a guy to get in his car and drive to a store in that state and buy a ticket for you.  Maybe you have a relative in that state that will do that for you free and won't keep the money if it wins.

      See U.S.A. MEGA on the left, honest place to play through, one of the few that buy real tickets instead of scammers booking their own bets and paying a fraction if you win a jackpot. 

      If you just gotta have your numbers in the next PowerBall Mega Millions and you don't live in or on the border of at state offering that game, there is no cheaper less risky way to play.

        I live in australia so if i want to get in on the USA powerball etc i have to use the online sites, cross my fingers and pray for 2x good luck.

        1x to win and 2x to actually collect the win.

        i only placed my 1st bet at betslips, and was puzleing how to make a less than game bet. there seems to only an option to play 5 lines for a total of $10 on lotto like power ball or mega ball.

         

        I thought i had solved it when i saw the pick 3 game has a bet 1 game option , so placed a $1 bet there, they billed my card $10  leaving a $9 balance in my account.

        but alas, i can still only make 5 line bets on powerball.

            No I don't. I wouldn't play a big jackpot game like PB or MM online, but I wouldn't be against playing Pick 3 or Pick 4 online.

              That's their price for the service.

              For jackpot games I just go to the store. I can see why you can't purchase the tickets yourself. If you don't trust the site, see if you can trust a friend/relative who lives in one of the PB states.

                  If I could play there I would again.  I never had a problem getting paid on my pick 3 or pick 4 winnings.  But after Click2Pay put a stop on US customers I was SOL.   I like online because I can pick 1 number and spread it across all states that have pick 3 and 4.   Yes you take a risk but like I said I never once did not get paid (grammar structure yes I know but you know what I mean)

                    yeah ive come to conlcussion they like to run their own book for the pick 3 and 4. and just use the lotto sales to pull customers.

                    their payout on p3 and p4 looks great, $9k or $900 a lot better than state lotto.

                     

                    like i said else where im in australia, and if i wanna try my hand at the awsome pots that powerball and mega ball generate i have to also try my luck at wether these guys will payout in the small chance i win.

                    for me its best i can do, and sure if i could walk to the local shop and enter your games there i would.

                    just like you have to pay almost twice the actual cost to play australian games online at ozlotteries if u want a chance at aussie games.

                      And FYI most of the places like betslips that do place your wager on PB or MM takes a 1% stake in that ticket! I don't know if that only happens if it's a jackpot winner or what.... But when Primeticket was in use I saw their statement to that effect about a 1% stake in that PB or MM ticket they bought on your behalf.

                      Keep dreaming the impossible dream, it just may come true! Thumbs Up

                        considering theyre  in possesion of the bearer paid ticket, im  very happy for them to take %1 and hand on 99% to me.

                        very happy indeed.

                         

                        infact if thats what happens in reality, ill be ecstatic.
