I just recently read in a past post that some U.S. banks will not accept direct deposits from online lottery websites? Is this true? IF so, how are all of you online players collecting your money? Check by mail, money gram, direct deposit, or exactly HOW? What is the SAFEST way to collect winnings from online lottery websites?
Also, how much does it usually cost to receive your winnings? Are there any issues to be aware of, or problems that can occur? Has anyone ever loss money that was due to them through non-receipt? Has anyone ever loss their entire online lottery account?
How do U.S. banks monitor and catch online lottery deposits by PAPER CHECK, or by direct deposit? Will they ever REFUSE TO HONOR such Deposits?
Has anyone ever deposited an Online Lottery Check, by any method, that bounced?
I haven't started playing Pick 3/4 online yet, so I'm inquiring in advance about the exact procedure for collecting your winnings, step by step, and any issues/problems to be aware of.
Would anyone like to share any personal experiences in this regard, without mentioning particular websites that we are not supposed to name on LP? (We should be able to WARN each other somehow, without violating any LP rules)
Also, exactly what is the legal content of the most recent Online Gambling Law, that has everyone concerned about the legality of playing lottery online? Is it legal to play Pick 3/4 , and/or Regular Lottery online, or not? I think a point of Precise Clarification is in order here.
Are we playing online at our own risk, against the Law, or what? I realize that we cannot give or receive legal advice on LP, however, I just want a YES or NO response to the question, Is playing lottery online legal, or not? Is there some AMBIGUITY in the Law, that would preclude a YES or NO response?
Are some forms of online wagering legally permissible, while others are not? If so, what category does the Lottery fall into? Can you get away with playing Pick 3/4 for small sums of money, but not Regular Lottery for larger sums of money? There probably isn't any distinction between the two, is there?
Your informative response would be appreciated.
