I hear people talking about playing online. What are these sites and how does it work? Do they send you a check when you when?Type

    The way it works is that you pay for the tickets you want, and for a modest service fee they buy the tickets for you. In the event of a modest win they can apply the money to future purchases or send you a check. In the case of a 2nd or 3rd level prize they'll send you the money. In the unlikely event that the ticket you had them buy wins a sizable jackpot, they realize that they'll never make that much money buying tickets for other people, and they'll keep it for themselves. The authoritites consider the businesses to be illegal, and illegal contracts are unenforceable. You should expect that even if you could prove that the ticket was bought for you, you won't see the money.

      well ive read a few and they claim they buy a share in ea ticket. Infact you give them a share, but that suposedly allows them to claim the ticket for you. I have playewd in 1, thewy claim a %5 share in all the tickets , and ha[ppily forgo any wins in the lowe $100 mark. only when the ticket starts winning $100k or so with they want their %5 cut.


      i guess im willing to forgo %5 if it means i collect 95%

      2014 = -1016; 2015= -1409; 2016  = -1171; 2017 = ?  TOT =  -3596

      keno historic = -2291 ; 2015= -603; 2016= -424; 2017 = ? TOT = - 3318
