A new website was advertised in the UK on the TV about playing lotteries around the world - Is it legal to play US lotto from the UK and what are the chances this website will pay out a large win?

    Depends on how it's setup.  Butler services that purchase tickets on your behalf are legal. 

    Of the left column of this site, click on USA MEGA  that's how it's done.

      Sounds like you're asking if the unnamed website is legitimate...

      A mind once stretched by a new idea never returns to its original dimensions!

        You can play the lottery from anywhere in the world that you have access and the means to pay for it. The critical question is, are you going to be able to collect a major PRIZE win?. You are just going to be another willing participant in this foolish game of suckers-r-us. Are you willing to be a SUCKER?. You tell us.

            Remember, they don't send you the ticket(s).  They keep them and inform you if you are a winner.  With that said, the purchaser of the ticket is the true owner.  If a ticket hits a major prize what do YOU think will occur?  I think piemaster is dead on correct.

              I'm feeling a $312,000,000.00 jackpot win coming my way!
