          No and I wouldn't do it even if it was offered.

            Are you saying the services advertised at USAMega aren't available to Oklahomans? Naughty  Although I don't understand why anyone would use them rather than buy their tickets locally.

                I do, it's the main way people buy them in the UK.

                2016 Won/Lost

                EuroMillions / Spent: £22 / Won £0 / Total -£22

                UK Lotto / Spent: £4 / Won: £0 / Total: -£4

                2016 Total: -£24

                Jan: -£22 Feb: £0 ~ Mar: £0 ~ April: £0 ~ May: £0 ~ June: £0 ~ July: £2

                 

                EuroMillions = £2 Line / Played: x11 [old price] 

                EuroMillions = £2.50 Line / Played: x0

                UK Lotto = £2 Line / Played x2

                  I was wondering the other day what the highest prize those services have paid out. As I understand it they don't actually buy the numbers, so they I suppose they could have had a jackpot winnter, in which case that winner was probably the most anonymous lottery jackpot winner ever.

                    there was a time where mega millions was won and re-set back to $12 million and the euro millions was 250 million euros or equal to about 328 million US dollars. This was 250 million euros cash value not annuity. I bought 3 tickets online just to be apart of it.

                      The legitimate services like USA MEGA on the left column of this site do not pay out, they cash the ticket they purchased for you and send you the money, or if a jackpot, provide you the winning ticket and purchase location so you can cash it yourself depending on state lottery rules.

                      There was only one service that plainly stated in their rules they banked the bets themselves and paid a fraction of the actual win above a set amount.  LP used to condemn them in the strongest terms until they changed their ways, now they are advertised here on the left column.  This company sells ticket purchase services throught multiple quasi-independent website/companies due to the bad smell that lingers, in my opinion.

                      Other services, do some research, domain lookup, etc. before buying tickets through them.

                        Rather insightful there Bob.

                        l am somewhat intrigued- what does " Creamed Possum" taste like, chicken perhaps?

                          Last christmas I bought raffle tickets for Spanish "el gordo" on the website TheLotter. The odds were pretty good even though I won nothing, otherwise I wouldn't have done it. Anyways, I was rather dissapointed when my bank statement showed that the payment was to a company in Tel Aviv. Its like a Brazillian buying MegaMillions ticket online and finding out that the payment was to a company in India.

                          That money's gone fo ever

                            I largely only play the online subscription service for Mega Millions and Powerball in Illinois. Ever since the corporation that runs our lottery instituted a $5 minimum online play, I only purchase 1 draw plays whenever my winnings exceed the $5 minimum and the jackpot is over $100 million cash value. I could afford to buy upwards of $2 extra per game (so 2 MM tix and 1 PB ticket), but I would soon land in the poor house if I tried to spend an extra $22 per week playing online. I suggested the lottery make it possible to purchasallays for all jackpot games on a single interface if they must maintain the $5 minimum transaction limit, but so far that suggestion has fallen on deaf ears. So I choose to not play online unless it is with "winnings.

                            Get MONEY!!! Winning a JACKPOT lottery is all the HOPE and CHANGE I desire!!!  NOW give me MONEY!US Flag

                            The guy who won the presidency in 2008 really won the lottery...he is now millions richer, travels in first class style, and even has a staff that would be the envy of the richest Powerball winner (she has a staff of 2). Every night he goes to sleep, he probably plays the close of Dave Chappelle's Show: I'm rich beyatch!

                              Considering all the stories we see about dishonest clerks, it's not a good idea buying tickets online from any source but an official state lottery. Trying to claim your jackpot winnings might turn into a nightmare.
