Since the Middle Ages, governments have been using lotteries as a way to finance important projects such as fortifications and war preparations. George Washington was a major advocate of the lottery, and in the 1768 Mountain Road Lottery, tickets were sold for $15,000 or more. Many modern governments recognize the value of the lottery, and most now have a national lottery. In fact, the lottery is considered a de facto national lottery game.
Online lotteries are quickly becoming popular, and in fact, some Northeastern states are pursuing the legalization of online lotteries. New Hampshire legalized its lottery last year and now offers e-Instant games that can be played from a desktop, tablet, or smartphone. Massachusetts and Rhode Island have also taken the initiative and are in the process of legalizing online lotteries. The lottery in Virginia is currently live and growing, and the future is bright for the online lottery industry.
If you’ve won a lottery, there are plenty of online options to play. In addition to playing lottery games from your home, you can use your credit card to purchase online lotto tickets. In fact, many states now allow the purchase of lottery tickets through their official websites. The process of playing online is similar to signing up with any other gambling website, but requires more personal information than a typical merchant. The only difference is that online lotto websites require you to enter your credit card information.
