Is betslips.com a scam? I guess we'll see once someone wins, if ever through this website. If anyone here has won a large amount through this site please let me know, only becuase I am curious. I do use it myself but I'm wondering if I ever hit what would happen? Know what I mean>

    No, it's not a scam - it's the real-deal.  I won 3+1, and the prize ($100) was instantly in my account.  If you're waiting for a jackpot winner, that's like waiting for one particular store to sell a jackpot winner - you might have a good wait in front of you.

      I won a small amount also, but how can you say it's the real deal without knowing one large winner. I'm not waiting for anything other than confirmation that this can be trusted and I think it's premature for me or to say so without knowing a real winner. You see, I figure once someone hits the jackpot we'll see what kind of laws they will hide behind to protect ownership in the ticket. They state on their website they own a 1% share, that means alot more than you might think. I know 2 laws they are violating.

      1. You are not allowed in any state, that I am aware of, to purchase lottery by credit card.

      2. No agency is allowed to keep any portion of your winnings, not even 1%.

      It's things like these that make me wonder, sure they can keep paying you and I a little here and thre but once they hit the jackpot they can close shop and move to Mexico. LOL. Well, all the suspense is killing me, somebady please win the jackpot so I know. LOL. Have a great day.

        acronym,

        The points you're making shows me that you haven't done a lot of legal research in this area.  This is certainly not an insult, but just something that is important because it is very complex.  In fact, too complex to discuss here.  Suffice to say, your two points above really don't have a bearing on their service for several reasons.  I don't think you have anything to worry about.  Just enjoy the fact that you can enjoy the service online - I do.

          Todd, you have insulted me, you forgot the 007 at the end of my screen name. I'm teasing. LOL. No offense taken either way. I have done some research and these are things that I have found studying law in various states. Sorry you don't agree but if you like you can contact some people I have contacted, they will concur with this. As i sit there talking legalities with them, we ponder how they ciurcumvent the system, what are they doing differently to be exempted. If you know how they do it, please do tell me in private or public. I'm all about the open rapport and communication, I love to learn new things so please don't hold out on me. The only point I was trying to make is once we see an actual jackpot winner through the service we can fully trust it until then I would not say I personally know how legit it is. Obviously I hope it is the great service it claims to be and I'm contributing towards it's success by purchasing tickets but it's going to be an unknown for me until that day some hits the motherload.. LOL. Thanks for your responses, we can learn and win togther. Best of luck to you, be sure to tell me if you win, then they will have a customer for life in me. Cheers.

            I do know how it's done, but that kind of information is too expensive to give out.  I'm sure there's a LOT of people who'd like to know.  (Ever notice all the "amateur" sites that come & go?)

            Oh, sorry about the missing "007"!

              I was asking you how to design a website bro, I was asking you what insight you had as to why the things they do are legal for them. I hope you do know I was joking about the 007 thing. LOL. Are you the owner or part owner of the betslips sites?

                Hello Acronym007,



                I think the 2 laws you mentioned that betslips.com is violating does not apply to them. Since they are not really official lottery agents.



                Really they are just acting like the middle man providing a service for someone who lives outside of the region.



                Like me saying to my friend here is $10 go buy me a quick pick.



                Basically betslips grabs your entries and money and goes to an official lottery agent and buys your tickets.



                Thats how I see it anyway.



                Regards,



                Irvin.



                Many happy lotto wins to you.

                    Why is that expensive info? Are you refering to the cost of legal advice? Thanks
