If someone will visit CT and can buy a scratch offs for me. That would have been great! I can send a money order, cash, gift card, personal check as a payment. I know its kinda annoying but I really want to play CT lottery as NY lottery is keep disappointing. (((

      Yea I don't think you'll get any takers. I'm in CT every weekend but i would never do this. If you were close i would go 50/50 on a bunch of tickets. I agree Ct is much better then NY.

          You do realize that mailing lottery tickets across state borders is illegal, right?

          It's a really bad idea to go on a public forum and request somebody do something illegal for you.

           

          Check the State Lottery Report Card
          What grade did your lottery earn?

            Maybe plan a trip one weekend? Take the train out to CT, relax for a couple of hours. Grab some food and tickets then head back?

              Mailing lottery tickets is illegal? I heard many people on Youtube is exchanging lottery tickets, but they are not from CT.

                  Make a one day retreat of it or see if Groupon has any deals and make a mini vacation.

                    Unfortunately it is a federal crime to send lottery ticket's in the mail. and you could be an agent trying to set up someone on this site to do just that. I would advise people not to send tickets in th mail for people you do not know. Beware of set ups.

                          Close the topic. Had no idea it is illegal. On Youtube people openly exchange tickets

                            It is only illegal if sent through the U.S. Mail. If you use UPS or another private carrier it is completely legal.

                              yes NY sends out their tickets from their warehouses to the retailers through UPS so that better not be illegal
