Online lottery tickets are safe and secure
Here’s the deal: In PA specifically, the state-run PA online lottery automatically notifies you of winning tickets. In fact, the vast majority of winnings are automatically paid out to your player account.
Note that for larger prizes, you do need to head into the PA Lottery Office. However, the difference is that with physical tickets, you need to sign your ticket and keep it secure until either mailing it in or turning it in to the lottery office. On the other hand, online lottery tickets are virtual, meaning you do not need to physically present the winning ticket.
If you aren’t located in PA, there are a handful of other states that allow sales of online lottery tickets:
- New York
- New Hampshire
- North Carolina
- North Dakota
