      From my understanding you can purchase them through a lottery pool or syndicates. This I do know and hope this helps.

        I'm pretty sure in every state lottery in the USA, pick-4 tickets must be bought from a state lottery retailer so the answer to your question is "no". If Congress ever passes a bill making online gambling legal, then it may be possible to buy tickets from other states.

            Some people are playing the lottery using off shore accounts and betting places it is against the law for USA citizens to play the lottery using these places there might be one state in the USA who is allowing people to play the pick 5 game using a subscription service.

            Besides being against the law for USA citizens to play the lottery using online betting places it next to impossible to fund the account since bank and lending institutions cant allow you to use a credit card or debit card to fund the account.

            Remember not all of the posters on Lottery Post are from the USA so people from other countries can still play on line betting parlors.

                Very good answer .  In the Bahamas we have number houses that sell online and via ticket for all the USA states, well most all. Fml in particular sells 31 houses per day including day and night. So truly its 17 houses, Loui dont have an early draw.  But appreciate we are not buying from the state lottery itself we are buying from a broker who is responsible for paying the bet.

                  We have bookies in the US that aren't affiliated with any state lottery that book pick-3 games. There probably are some that will book numbers in other states too, but it is illegal.

                  Do your houses pay off at $900 to $1 or does it vary?

                      If you have friends or family that live in the State you want to Play: You could have them Purchase Tickets for You.

                              Cuz people would go play where they could play in real ball drawings instead of our fake computer drawings.

                              And they would go play where they had better payouts for wins.

                              And they would go play where they had more interesting games.

                              And they would go play where they could play a Pick5 game.

                              And they would go play where they could play a Pick6 game.

                              And they would go play where they wouldn't have to deal with convenience store clerks routinely trying to rip off winners and a Lottery Commission that honestly couldn't care less about it.

                              And they would go play where the Lottery Director's job security is based on competence rather than politics and cronyism and where they occasionally consider what the players want.

                              In short, I don't think too many people would play anything here but PB and MM and then again, maybe not even those games. 

                              Best to you too Karinda,
