      I don't know if the subject is taboo, but there is a question of legally transferring money to and from betting accounts. The reason might be as simple as giving free advertisement to an illegal operation. Not all LP members live in the U.S. so their ability to bet online depends on their laws.

        Legal or not (to tranfer money in that way) it seems to be or to have been sort of not well seen by Todd for L.P. members to write (talk) about some, but not all online lottery betting sites.

        That is why most people here won't post much or anything about that subject.

        I will write about that, as I am doing right now, but I can't name those sites nor post their links, nor send to anybody their names nor their links.

        But I tell you that it is not impossible to find at least one of those sites, but I won't say how.

        Good luck!!!

          Well according to Artist, there is a book called "GOOGLE for dummies".  You might try that.

          However I am a Binger.

          I am curious (and a cat with a bout 5 lives to spare), how is it that it is legal to use the LOTTER service but other online sites are "taboo"

          Although I think B*g*LIPS, was NOT taboo.

          (just a precaution with the stars)

            Some people might need such as book to find anything on the WWW, so good of you to post about it.

            I myself use St _ _ t pa _ e search engine.

            On the third line: Cause Todd says so or thinks so.

            As to Betslips or whatever, it was not taboo.

            The very last line I didn't understand.

            By the way, I am not sure, but Betslips seems to be gone (dead).

                      Places like USA MEGA on the column left are butler services, they buy tickets and transport them as a service. They do not sell lottery tickets, those are paid for and purchased at face value the additional portion of the price to play is for the service.  The Lotter used to bank their own bets and pay a fraction of the JP if won, supposedly they no longer do that and their ads have appeared here from time to time since then.

                      The U.S. has millions of laws and many of us are sick and tired of pretending to obey them all.  Last I looked it wasn't illegal to play in a online lottery that is free to play and your state isn't banned in the rules nor is it illegal to play lotto where it is legal where it is resident.  Just as you are free to travel to any state or nation that has a lotto and play it.  Just as illegal aliens come here, win lotto and leave with the prize. Hell citizenship should come with a jackpot IMHO.  What is a problem is restrictions on the transfer of money (and you thought we were a free people, sheepeople is more the word) where you must jump through enough hoops to take most of the fun out of winning, but it can be done and many do.

                        It's not illegal to play another state's lottery, players travel across state lines every week to do that.

                          I don't know...

                          "I'm a bit confused about this online play because I've read it is not illegal"

                          Welcome to the club!

                          I played online poker and it was simply setting up an account and using a regular bank checking debit account to deposit money into the online poker account. I could withdrawn from the poker account and the money would be in my debit account in less than three days. It was a legal transfer of funds for gambling to and from U.S. banks to foreign banks until Congress passed the Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act in 2006. The legality of gambling online depended on the interpretation of the Interstate Wire Act of 1961 and it wasn't enforced on casino type, poker, and Bingo gambling.

                          In 2006 the majority of online gambling sites closed their doors to U.S. players because the monetary transactions were illegal, but some of the poker sites continued by finding a way to launder the monetary transactions.  On April 15, 2011, the Feds seized the Internet domains of these poker sites preventing anyone in the world from playing. The poker sites were open the next day, but closed to all U.S. players. In September 2011, the Justice Department released an opinion on the scope of the Wire Act and it only applied to sports betting and not to other types of online betting.

                          The Unlawful Enforcement Act "prohibits gambling businesses from knowingly accepting payments in connection with the participation of another person in a bet or wager that involves the use of the Internet and that is unlawful under any federal or state law." and according the JD, anything but sports betting is legal.

                          Betting on U.S. horse racing online added to the confusion; it was never called illegal because it wasn't clarified in the Unlawful Enforcement Act and U.S. companies continued running the sites. That type of online betting continued after 2006, after Black Friday and anyone in the U.S. can open an account today and legally bet on horse races.

                          Many of the states created legislation making Internet gambling illegal before the JD interpretation, but betting on horse races was excluded. Because of the JD interpretation, some states created legislation that allows Internet gambling within their borders. It's legal to play online poker in Nevada but not if the computer is in Utah. It's legal for Illinois residences to purchase lottery tickets online, but illegal to for Kentucky residences. However KY residences can go into Illinois and purchase lottery tickets. It's so confusing, a simple explanation of it all, is as clear as mud.

                            "How many websites do you think I give free advertising too just by having BONER as my screenname?"

                            I tried to limit my opinion on free advertisement of specific gambling sites with the potential of involving illegal activities. I have no opinion on advertising competitor sites or any other site because this site has the option to edit parts of the posts pertaining to those site. If I was told not to post those types of links, I wouldn't argue why.

                            It's a fine line on what's legal and what's illegal with any lottery gambling site because what's illegal in he U.S. and what is legal in other countries are two different things. We're always reading posts where member say their system shows a profit using online odds and that could be called free advertisement especially if they posted a link.

                            When you get into the fine details, posting advertised jackpot amounts is free advertisement for the lotteries. As for seeing your screen name, I never thought of it as advertisement.
