Todd, I have done enough research online and online websites such as lottogopher, winatrillion, freelotto, congolotto are the proofs that there is place for online lottery to exists.
Also, US Justice department recently announced that Wire act only applies to sports wagering, so they have cleared a way for states to sell their lotteries online. NY state has been wanting to persue that from last 2 years.
And no I did not that information from you, so don't think you are the only one with information around here. LottoGopher was recently kicked out of Florida due to the same reasons that they were claiming prizes on behalf of its users.
I would suggest that you do your own research first before telling others that they havn't done theirs :)
