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

Green1,

Do you use Betslips.com?

If you think you can or if you think you can't you are right!

      Let me know what numbers you are playing if they all comes in GA. I really want to know.

      If you think you can or if you think you can't you are right!

        As I think of the online playing at the site I mentioned earlier; a $1.00 pic 3 ticket will cost $2.00 and they pay $900 resulting in a $100 lost to me, but a $100 income to them. I think I stick to walking to the store and buy my ticket. For someone not near a store this may be a good way for them to play.

          Huh?  Both online places charge $1.00 for a Pick-3 straight play and pay $900 for a win, $400 more then the state pays. 

          • If you play the numbers 1-2-3 Straight, your payout would be 900 to 1.  (A $1.00 wager would payout $900, a 25¢ wager would payout $225.)

          IMO: This is because they can book their own p-3.  You pay more when they have to pay someone to go out and buy tickets for the big jackpot games.

          If the state went online they would still pay $500 on a $1.00 straight play, for tax reasons if nothing else.

              Maybe Lotto, Powerball, or Mega Millions, but not Pick3/4.

                The $2 that it cost to play online resulting in a $900 payout will resullt in a $1000 payout offline. I will not need the online service, I can get tickets without the service.

                    Lottery should embrace technology and offer it online. It will cost lots on their end at start, however, they will make 100x the money back with a better reach to players.
