      So far relatively few states have allowed online lottery sales.  Here in Illinois, no one has won a jackpot game online.  They noted this when supposedly it was going to be shut down awhile back(but never was) b/c of legislature inaction. 

      That being said, many people are paranoid about signing and cashing in a winning jackpot paper ticket(should they be so lucky) without it mysteriously being lost burned, destroyed or stolen by a shady relative, random burglary, lawyer or lottery ticket clerk. 

      With an online winning ticket,  the paranoia would reach new heights.    Hackers and identity thieves would try their best to "steal" the winnings away.  The lottery typically posts the store where the winning physical ticket was sold rather quickly.  Considering no one has ever won a jackpot game online, can imagine they'd be quick to advertise it was sold online.  Then let the fun begin for those of lower morals who can hack anything. 

      That being said, I wonder how many forms of ID it would take to claim an online jackpot?

          Not a huge MM or PB size jackpot, but Illinois has had Lucky Day Lotto online winners. That's twice a day game with jackpots in the $x00,000.00 range.

            I do get regular emails, telling me I have won small prizes, which are credited to my subscription account. I enjoy getting the emails, it is fun.
