Some states sell lottery entries online, letting people buy tickets from home without having to travel to an official state lottery office. These websites can allow you to participate in local drawings and also major multi-state games like Powerball or Mega Millions. They usually aren’t government-run, instead they’re run by private companies who act as middlemen for the actual state lottery game.
Most of these websites are designed for desktop computers, which makes playing them easier because you can focus better on what you’re doing. You can also play on your tablet or smartphone, but the experience may not be as good.
