      I would use it but I would rather see them put all games online. I'm out in the boonies and it would save me a lot of time and gas.

      That would be a great way for them to increase sales which are lagging now in a lot of states.

        I don't play Pick 3 that often and we don't have Pick 4, so if they had that option, I would probably rarely use it.

          I've been playing the lottery since it started in Florida and now in Kentucky and have never had to wait in a line?..I don't trust the internet enough to play on line so if they ever went to just on line lotto I'd quit..

            Yes, I would play online. But you could spend much more than you normally would.

                I wouldn't play online, I think it's another step toward computerized everything when it comes to the lottery. Bet online, conduct electronic drawings online, pay out prizes online, no thank you. Not enough transparency to the process. Mechanical balls and paper tickets are the only way to go.

                  How would they collect the money?

                   

                  Credit cards?  for a $1 transaction?

                  The fees would be too high.

                  Now the stores only accept cash or money orders.

                   

                  And how would you get the ticket?

                  computerized could lead to fraudulent tickets.

                    Those are interesting questions and never having played online myself, I would like to know also.

                    Can any online players provide the answers?

                    Also, are you playing directly through the state lottery or is somebody buying the tickets for you?

                    And is there much of a commission?

                        I wouldn't trust playing online when it involves a lot of money. I would rather go to the Store and get the ticket if it is over 1,000, no I would'nt do it.

                          I was looking at The Lottery Store and trying to find information about it.  Has any LP members ever used their service? If so, what is your opinion of them?

                              ONLINE!!!!!!!

                              i don't how it is in the us but here in the bahamas when you play with ticket you get 800.00 for dollar str and online you get 900.00....when placing a ticket bet you would have a long line were as all you have to do is place money on you're account and go home in privacy and put in you're numbers...and when it's time to collect you might loose ur ticket were as online it's on you'er account and all you have to do is use a atm card they give you and withdraw....just like a bank...i hope i'll be using mines today
