If I'm not mistaken lottery players can buy lottery tickets over the Internet and at Lottery Retailers in the UK.  I wonder why are we so behind when it comes to this here in the USA.  I feel that US lotteries should model the UK and start selling lottery tickets over the Internet.

      The lotter is a lottery agent. I'm talking about playing the lottery on US lottery websites like in the UK. In the UK you open an account online with a minimum 5 pounds deposit and then you buy your tickets over the lottery website without using a lottery agent like the lotter or a lottery retailer.

        The quicker they figure out how to confiscate more of our money by allowing sales online, the quicker we'll have it.

              A  22 years old named Cassey Carrington won the euromillions by playing over the Internet in the UK on January 20, 2012. http://www.huffingtonpost.co.uk/2012/02/09/cassey-carrington-and-mat_n_1265169.html

              " Carrington said she set up her online account only last Friday because she was feeling lucky.

              "The store where I work had won an incentive for delivering excellent sales. We had been presented with �10,000 which was shared between staff.

              "After that I just felt like it was my lucky day and decided to get a EuroMillions ticket.

              "I got home and set up an account online. The minimum you could put into the account was �5, so I did that and bought one EuroMillions ticket for Friday."

              Carrington said she has only played the lottery about half a dozen times and put the win down to it being "my lucky day".

                    I used to buy tickets on retailers and spend around �50/month. When another form of lottery came ( the EuroMillions) I then played �100/month. When the lottery became online, I have been allocating around 150/month (not reallybut just minimizing). What I am saying is that it will be too comfortable that you may not notice you are playing more than usual.
                    By the way before u call me a lottery addict, I don't smoke and I don't drink. I even stopped going to Mcdonalds because of my lottery.
                    The only time I was told that I am playing the lottery too muc is when I stopped buying shoes and bag for my wife. Wrong move.
                    Well I stopped playing the Euromillions now and only plays themain lotto in a syndicate.

                      Lottery Stop Loss Limit= 1 lottery ticket per drawing whenever I play. It is a 50/50 Rule situation. I either Win or Lose.

                      I can't say anything negative about how much you play. It is all about Risk Perception. We all perceive Risk different. Good Luck.

                        You can play the New York Lottery online, but you do need a NY state address.

                          New York and Illinois will drive change in this area.  If the Department of Justice clarifies their position that it is legal and NY and IL have successful online sales figures, more states will follow their lead.
