Online lottery sites have many advantages, but some drawbacks. The first is that you must pay an agent to buy your tickets. An agent is a middleman who will charge you more than the actual price of a ticket. This fee is called the handling fee. If you choose to purchase tickets directly from a lottery site, you won’t be charged a handling fee.
You can buy tickets online in many different states. In the United States, the MegaMillions lottery is available in 45 states. You can also purchase tickets in Washington DC and the US Virgin Islands. The MegaMillions jackpot is almost always over $1 billion. There are also many other lotteries that allow you to buy tickets online.
Online lottery games cost a few dollars. You can play for as little as $0.05 or up to $20 depending on the game. The top prize can range from $20 to $300,000. Some states have already launched an online lottery.
