I tried to open an account and place a bet on everyone's favorite online lottery site, and when I got down to the "payment type" option, there was no option to pay by regular credit card (visa), you had to pay by "Click To Pay" onlyI thought "Click To Pay" was only required for Non - US Customers.  I live in South Carolina, USA.

Why are US customers required to use this service to place a bet????

 

Anyway, I tried to register with "Click To Pay", and their website gave me an ERROR message, stating that my IP Address was not located in the US or any of the countries that they service, therefore I could not set up an account with "Click To Pay". Since I could not set up an account, I could not place a bet through everyone's favorite online lottery website, which has no other options for payment by US customers.

Can someone please explain why this happened, and what to do about it ???? If Click To Pay is not in service to US Customers anymore, that means that everyone's favorite online lottery website CANNOT be utilized either by New US customers. Is this TRUE, or Not ?????

There is only one other website option for playing Pick 3/4 online. Does anyone know if this site is a safe bet or not ??? (without mentioning the name of the site)

Thanks.

P.S. I sent a Question about what happened to the Customer Service Dept. of the online lottery website, and they have NOT responded with an explanation yet.  I don't know if they ever will.

      It is currently illegal for U.S. banks and credit card companies to process payments to and from legal gambling sites in other countries.  This is why a third party like Click to Pay is necessary as a work around. 

      Your ISP might be routing you through servers in some other country like China or India regardless of where you make payments to,  or perhaps you are using some kind of throw away account Click to Pay won't work with. 

      Sometimes when setting up various accounts online people have to select their country from a popup column and if they don't double click right the box closes and reverts to the top selection like Afghanistan.  You may want to review your ISP account just to be sure there's nothing weird in there.

        I personally think click 2 pay's message is just setup the opposite of what they are trying to say.  I think they're trying to say that you are from the USA and therefore can't register.

        Off the top of my head, I can think of two scenarios that could get you started:

        1. If you have a friend or relative in Canada or some other non-USA country, have them register a click 2 pay account in their name, and send them the money to fund it.
        2. Maybe another Lottery Post member in another country could help you out by allowing you access to their account.
        3. Any other ideas...?

          I have DSL Internet Service through Bellsouth, now owned by AT&T.  When I filled out the account information page on the lottery website, I indicated that I am located in the United States.  When I clicked through to "Click To Pay" I received the ERROR message that my IP Address was not located in the US or any area that they serviceWhy would AT&T be routing my DSL service through a foreign country ??? Someone else just posted that he/she had experienced the same problem trying to set up an online lottery account. 

          Can anyone explain what happened or what to do about it ????

          Does this mean that I should try setting up an account from a Public Library computer ????  If this works, I would have to make all online lottery bets from the Public Library.

          Thanks.

            He's looking to play Pick-3/4 online.  The two you mentioned are for Jackpot games.

            The Lotter developed such a bad reputation for banking their own bets and paying a mere fraction of the prize they recently began buying actual tickets or at least they now claim to buy tickets.   The Lotter has several lottery ticket sales sites under different names besides Lotter.

            Conga Lotto, never heard of them before, but there are many lottery ticket butler services out there.  I would recommend U.S.A. MEGA as the best if they have the game you want to play.

                    did you read Todd's post.

                    At the present time it's against the law for any bank or lending institution in the USA to fund a gambling account oversees or out of the USA territory.

                    You can set up an account but to fund it your going to have to find another way or wait till the USA government amends the overseas gambling laws.

                      Thank you.

                      Does anyone know where this particular online lottery website (everyone's favorite, that we cannot mention) is located ???  I read somewhere that it might be set up in Singapore.  Is this True ???

                      It just occured to me, that when you click through from the lottery website (in the process of trying to set up an account), if the online lottery website is OFF SHORE somewhere, then their IP address is the one NOT located in any country that "Click To Pay" services.

                      Also, Why is the online lottery website still allowing OLD US Customers, who have already registered in previous years, to continue to place online bets ??? Their databases haven't recognized the difference between OLD and NEW US Customers yet ??? Or, have they just decided to ignore this ???

                      Thank you to TODD for pointing out that the phrase on their website "NON - US Customers" in reference to "Click To Pay", means that they only cater to Non - US Customers, and NOT to US Customers anymore.  (Even though it is curious that when you click through to Click To Pay from the lottery website, their (Click's) website indicates that they DO service the United States and several other foreign countries.  Perhaps they don't service the US for online Lottery service anymore though. )

                       

                      Any feedback, anyone ???

                              The only real failure .....is the failure to try.                               

                                                            Luck is a very rare thing....... Odds not so much. 

                                                            Odds never change .....but probability does.
