Ten years ago there were several Internet sites where we could gamble playing Bingo, poker, and bet on horse races. In 2006 Congress passed the Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act and by 2011 all the sites were closed with the exception of horse racing. You can buy lottery tickets for other states games, but you can only cash those tickets in that state. Even though the PB and MM numbers are the same in each state, we can only cash those in state where the tickets were bought too.

Currently 39 states have casino gambling and eventually state legislators will see through the hypocrisy and allow online lottery wagers within states and hopefully players can open accounts with other state lotteries. The states with 5 minute Keno could easily double their Keno sales with online wagering.

Stack47,

Yea, that would be great if I could buy my PB/MM here in Jersey and claim the JP in an anonymous state like Delaware.

 

You have more faith in state legislators than me, I don't think most of em know what hypocrisy means.

Good luck to us all on that.

    As long as each state is responsible for paying the secondary PB and MM prizes, cashing in tickets bought another state will never happen.

    "You have more faith in state legislators than me, I don't think most of em know what hypocrisy means."

    If KY can OK online lottery ticket sales, other states won't be far behind. Currently it's just a few states offering multi-state game sales along with their lotto games, but the next step is all state online games and possibly poker and bingo. Five minute Keno is a natural for online wagering. It won't be much different than when other states began noticing NJ's casino profits and enacted casino gaming laws.

    The next interesting debate will be online "sports betting" especially since Nevada OKed betting on the 2016 Olympic games.
