Apparently it seems that you do not even need to be in the US to get tickets for this game.

 

I was just informed that people in Europe and Australia are buying tickets for the PB jackpot (it has been advertised on newspapers) 

 

One example is the website lottoland that sells tickets to Australian citizens

 

In the Metro newspaper (UK) they have advertised a buy 1 ticket get 1 free sale

 

How would you feel if someone from a different country won? should this even be allowed? why in the hell would US players still play?

    I don't give it a second thought. If I don't win, I don't care who does. If a foreigner puts down his money, he's got skin in the game.

      Lottoland is a bookie, they accept "bets" on the winning numbers, not ticket purchases.

      I'm all for foreigners winning.Cool

        I also like that I can play from abroad of course.

        Lottoland advertises in Sweden like many other similar companies. They say they are insured but what company will insure 1.5 bil... not easy to to belive they can. I also want to have the ticket scanned. Only thelotter do this.  The site Lottoexposed have many articles on lotteries around the world, makes it easier to decide where to play.

            yeah aussie one is called lottoland.com.au   and they look just like the lotter,  only differnce is this places charges $14 AUD for 1 pb tickets,

            $14 AUD-= ~ $10 USD, so a 5x markup

            2014 = -1016; 2015= -1409; 2016 JAN = -106; FEB= -81; MAR= -131; APR= - 87: MAY= -91; JUN= -39; JUL=-134; AUG= -124; SEP = -123; OCT= -84  NOV=- 73 TOT= -3498

            keno historic = -2291 ; 2015= -603; 2016= JAN=-32, FEB= +12 , MAR= -86, APR = -77. MAY= -48, JUN= -29, JUL=-71; AUG = -52; SEPT= -43; OCT = +56 NOV = -33 TOT= -3297

              That's crazy!

              2016 Won/Lost

              EuroMillions / Spent: £22 / Won £0 / Total -£22

              UK Lotto / Spent: £4 / Won: £0 / Total: -£4

              2016 Total: -£24

              Jan: -£22 Feb: £0 ~ Mar: £0 ~ April: £0 ~ May: £0 ~ June: £0 ~ July: £2

               

              EuroMillions = £2 Line / Played: x11 [old price] 

              EuroMillions = £2.50 Line / Played: x0

              UK Lotto = £2 Line / Played x2

                That is twice as much as I'm playing.The logistics involved with Thelotter justify their charges,and I'm O.K. in paying that price for a good and reliable service.

                But this lottoland mob,that is simply a rort.The name even implies a park ride they are taking you on.

                  I Agree!

                  Also, I can't see not playing anymore because a foreigner wins a jackpot. 

                  I would like to play a few out of the country ones myself.  Wink
