The first official territory-wide lottery was introduced in 1934 by Puerto Rico. A few decades later, other states followed. The first legalized online lottery was Illinois in 2012. As the online market grew, some of the more popular draw games were added to the site, including Daily Lottery Games and Instant Games. In 2011, the Department of Justice clarified the Wire Act, which allowed states to offer lottery tickets online. Currently, only six jurisdictions offer online lotteries. However, several more states are working toward legalizing them.
While many of the top lotteries in the US offer online sales, others are deferring to third-party applications. These sites allow players to bet on the results of a drawing and collect prizes directly from customers.

The top prize is usually around $10,000.
The largest multi-state lottery in the US is Powerball. There are eight draw games to choose from. The grand prize is typically a million dollars, but it is possible to win smaller prizes as well. It’s also possible to play multiple-state draw games, including Mega Millions, Megabucks, and Powerball. There are also numerous instant win games, such as Street Fighter II Instant Win, Street Fighter II Pull Tabs and the single version of Keno. A winner must bet at least five times to be eligible for a prize.
Michigan has been one of the most successful state lotteries in the country. The lottery has set sales records for the past two years and continues to grow in popularity. It has sold more than $8 million in online tickets in less than 18 months. This has led to the creation of an iLottery, which allows the purchase of online lottery tickets for significant draws. This service is available from desktop and mobile apps. It also offers the chance to purchase jackpot game tickets online.
The Massachusetts lottery is currently in the process of legalizing an online version of its games. When it is fully operational, it will feature eight different draw games and three multi-state draw games. It will also offer a Millionaire Raffle, Cash 4 Life, and Treasure Hunt.

While the majority of lottery proceeds go to public schools and other educational institutions, some lottery proceeds are earmarked for other uses. For example, the Connecticut Lottery profits go to educational programs and general fund services. The Virginia Lottery donates money to public school construction, renovation, and maintenance.
