Lottery Online is an online lottery game that allows players to purchase entries for a wide variety of national and international games. The sites aren’t government-run, but they act as a middleman between players and lottery games like MegaMillions and Powerball.
Buying Tickets Online
The best lottery websites and mobile apps make it easy to buy your ticket anywhere, anytime. Just find a site that offers your favorite game, select your numbers, and confirm your transaction.
Check Your Numbers
All of the best lottery sites have tools to help you check your winning numbers. For example, Virginia Lottery Online has a tool that lets you input your numbers, select a draw date, and see if you’re a winner.
Winnings Are Taxed
If you win a prize of $600 or more, your state’s online lottery operator will send you a W2-G form to fill out and submit to the IRS. The website will withhold 24% of your prize money for federal taxes and whatever the rate is in your state.
Some states allow you to buy a subscription that will automatically purchase lottery tickets on a recurring basis for weeks, months or a year. Visit your state’s lottery website and look for a “subscriptions” link.
Purchasing Tickets in Bulk Over the Internet
Many states allow you to buy multiple lottery tickets at once over the internet. For example, New Hampshire offers a purchase range of 1-100 tickets at a time and you can even buy tickets for up to 104 consecutive drawings.
