A: We only recommend that you purchase lottery tickets from official ticket sellers in your area (ex: some gas stations or grocery stores). If you do not know where to purchase tickets, most official websites of lotteries will have a page where you can locate retailers of their lottery tickets. You can find the official website for your state or country by going to our USA Lotteries Links or International Lotteries Links pages.

For the most part, the only safe way to purchase a ticket for a game in another state or country is to travel to that location yourself and puchase a ticket locally. There is one new exception. Illinois is now the first state to offer online ticket sales for Illinois Lotto, Illinois Powerball, and Illinois Mega Millions, but they only allow intra-state sales. There are at least a dozen other states which have approved a move to expand lottery ticket sales online. Do not try buying tickets through online third party companies because it is illegal to buy lottery tickets on behalf of others.

Smart Luck does not sell any lottery tickets, and we do not run any lotteries. We only sell products designed to improve your odds of winning.
