In the space of only a few years both the Mega Millions and US Powerball jackpots broke records when they eclipsed the $1 billion mark. And it doesn't stop there; in fact the five biggest jackpots ever are all from American lottery games. This means more lottery players are showing an interest in playing in US lotto games.
And with the rise in popularity of online lottery ticketing services lottery players from around the world can buy lottery tickets without ever having to leave their homes. Because of this many global lottery players are asking themselves the question: Can I play and win in US lottery games?
The longer and more official sounding answer is; "It was concluded in an opinion by VIRGINIA A. SEITZ, United States Assistant Attorney General about the states of New York and New Jersey, that lotteries do not form a part of the Wire Act which is the primary federal legislation governing interstate transactions."
Basically with growth of the internet the American government has tried to minimise what they try to regulate, and have concluded that lotteries do not fall under the Wire Act and therefore do not relegate who plays in them.
Because of this lottery players from the U.K, Australia, Canada and the rest of the world have been buying up US lottery tickets and hoping to collect those multi-million dollar jackpots!
And foreigners aren't only buying tickets for US lotteries, they're winning big jackpots too! This includes a man from Iraq who won a $6.4 million jackpot from a US lotto game, and a man from Australia who won $1 million in the US Powerball.
Some more foreign winners of US lotteries include a 73-year old pensioner from El Salvador who won a $1 million Powerball jackpot, a Canadian player also bagged a $1 million Powerball prize and finally a $30 million winner from Panama. None of these winners bought their tickets in the US.
