Purchasing a lottery ticket online is a relatively new phenomenon, with most states having only recently authorized online sales. Online lottery ticket sales have not yet reached the level of widespread popularity of traditional lotteries, though it is expected that more states will follow suit in the near future.
Online lotteries are no different from purchasing tickets at the local lottery office.

While this feature can be helpful, it also means that a player is not actually participating in the lottery game.
