Will Legalizing Online Lottery Sales Affect Lottery Sales in Our Region?

While the lottery has been in operation for over a century, the US is just beginning to legalize online lotteries. New Hampshire legalized an online lottery last summer. In fact, players can play the game using their desktop, mobile phone, or tablet. Massachusetts and Rhode Island are in the process of legalizing online lotteries as well. These states will likely follow New Hampshire’s lead and legalize online lotteries as well. Let’s take a look at how this could affect lottery sales in our region.

Official online lotteries are no different than the ones found at land-based distribution points. In most cases, players are paying the same price for the same tickets, and are participating in the same game as everyone else. Unfortunately, there’s no universally accepted method of purchasing lottery tickets online, and every official distributor has their own set of policies. But the convenience of playing a lottery on the internet is worth the inconvenience if you want to enjoy a quality experience.

The main disadvantage of lottery apps is that you have to download them to your device. Moreover, they require periodic updates, which will take up precious space on your device. You also won’t be able to use the app from your desktop computer, so you’ll have to download it first. But the downside is that lottery apps won’t allow you to use your desktop computer to play the lottery. And if you do win the jackpot, you’ll have to use your mobile device to collect the winnings.
