here they have had online for a while interstate. finally they bring it here. This is bad news for the retailers, who had to pay a hefty commission to get the terminals in their store. and are also embargoed form having a sales in low traffic locations, or near another terminal owner. When I say hefty, i mean in the realm of $40k to get the license to operate and machine installed.
anyhow some thoughts on the new system.
you fund thru credit card payments, yet the stores that sell them are not allowed to accept credit payment.
you cannot withdraw funds from the account until the credit card is verified.
although the state has a player card scheme that has ran for years, the online ticket sales is not connected to card purchase its like 2 separate data bases are in use.
the low price for min entry costs has been raised on some games, where you only have to buy 2 lines in the store you have to purchase 4 online. This really bugs me and makes it that i would have to do half my purchases online and half in store, if i wanted to continue making min purchases. meaning i am likely not to bother using the online sales unless i know i cant make it to a store, and HAVE to use the online as only option not to miss buying a ticket.
last i can think of, there is cancel ticket option where you can cancel ticket purchases before the draw.
I already used the site, seems simple enough you can save plays as regular sets.
