Lotteries are games of chance in which players can buy tickets, hoping to win money by selecting numbers. These games are available in most US states. Some of them are even available online.
Depending on the state, a lot of these games cap out at just $20, while others can reach up to $500,000. Online lottery sites allow customers to purchase tickets and claim their prizes at local retail locations or through a bank account.
Most of these states offer a variety of draw games, including multi-state and instant win options. The biggest lottery in the United States is MegaMillions. Players can choose from eight draw games. Alternatively, they can opt to play one of three multi-state games.
A few states in the Northeast are now considering expanding their reach to online lottery sales. One of them is New Hampshire.
In Pennsylvania, an online lottery launched last year. Before the launch, the state reported $4 billion in total game sales. Since then, sales have been steady.
Massachusetts is in the process of legalizing an online lottery. However, it may take some time to get everything in place. When it does, a new customer can claim two welcome offers: a 50 percent bonus on their first 10 games and 10 free games using the bonus code ONLINE10.
Rhode Island is in the middle of a phase of online lottery legalization. Residents of that state must be 18 years old to play.
