Frequently Asked Questions

  1. Is it legal to provide ticket purchase service to your members?
    We do not sell or re-sell lottery tickets. We only provide the service of purchasing tickets on behalf of our members. All tickets are not mailed across the state line. Based on 1992 Second Circuit Court of Appeals ruling of Florida Lottery vs Monticello Communications, it is legal to provide such kind of service. We quote the following paragraphs from PC WORLD by Tom Spring:

    • Lottery officials in Florida say the state doesn't actively go after Internet-based lotteries ever since it lost a 1992 Second Circuit Court of Appeals case to Illinois-based Monticello Communications, which marketed Florida lottery tickets across state lines.
    • "Lottery ticket brokers aren't in violation of Florida laws," says Kenneth R. Hart, the Florida Lottery Commission attorney. The circuit court in Tallahassee ruled for Monticello Communications, saying that because the firm charged only for the service of buying tickets and charged consumers the face value of lottery tickets, it was lawful in Florida.

    No. This is not a spam website. The purpose of this webiste is to help those who do not live in Florida and still wish to play Florida lottery, or those who are inconvenient, such as handicapped, no vehicles, or any other reasons, to buy lottery tickets at any lotto retail stores.
