Buying Powerball Tickets Online

You can buy Powerball tickets in stores from most states in America, but residents of Alabama, Alaska, Hawaii, Mississippi, Nevada and Utah do not have a state lottery of their own to enjoy. Players in non-participating states previously had little option but to travel outside their borders if they wanted to take part in the game, but it is now possible to play Powerball online.

How to Play

Concierge services such as WinTrillions allow you to buy online lottery tickets from anywhere in the USA. Click the Powerball banner below to get started and follow the 4 simple steps to receive your tickets in no time!

A lottery agent based in a participating state will then buy the official tickets from an authorised retailer and you will be sent a scanned copy as proof of purchase. Your numbers will be securely stored in your account until the Powerball draw.

The payment system is fully encrypted and refunds are guaranteed if your expectations aren't met.

All of your tickets are scanned securely into your online account.

Money Bag

Your winnings will also be automatically paid into your account.

How to Claim

You will be automatically notified of any prize win on Powerball and in most cases the money will be transferred directly to your online account. From there, you can use your winnings to purchase tickets for future draws, or withdraw it into your bnak account. For a larger amount such as the jackpot, arrangements may need to be made for you to collect the prize in person, but officials from the lottery concierge service will be able to guide you through the process.

Is it Legal?

Yes. Online services such as WinTrillions provide a messenger business rather than a gambling business, buying official tickets on the behalf of players.

Tax

Online services do not charge commission so you can win all the same prizes as anyone who buys a Powerball ticket from a retailer, but you still have to pay taxes like everyone else. All big prizes are subject to federal tax of 25%, and there is then a state withholding depending on where the ticket is purchased. Each state has a different tax rate, and some cities also apply their own separate rules.

Benefits of Playing Online

If you play online, it takes away the need to go and find a store and wait in line for a ticket. You cannot lose your ticket as you are sent a scanned copy as proof that you have played, and you will be paid any prize money straight away.

Why do some states not sell Powerball tickets?

Legislators in Utah and Hawaii have always been opposed to gambling of any kind. Whereas Nevada and Mississippi have state-approved casinos which have left their respective gaming boards reluctant to introduce lotteries. Alaska is so sparsely populated that there has never been a huge demand for a lottery, but it has been a big issue in Alabama as so many residents cross state lines to spend money on tickets elsewhere that politicians regularly debate the merits of bringing in a lottery.

You can also take part in international lottery games from outside the USA, using similar online services to choose numbers online and try to win great prizes.
