Some of the more popular lotteries include Cash4Life, Mega Millions, and Powerball. These games require players to select a set of numbers and match them with those that are drawn. However, there are also instant win games, which allow players to win without having to wait for the drawing. Some of these are even available on mobile phones and tablets.

While the number of states that offer online lottery has increased, they are still relatively few. Fortunately, some Northeastern states are considering legalizing their lotteries online. In addition, Massachusetts is in the process of introducing an online lottery. This will give players an opportunity to purchase tickets from home.

While no online lottery in New York has been introduced yet, there are apps for Android and iOS users. These apps allow players to view prize draws, scan tickets, and check their results. The site has also added a map of retailers so you can easily locate the nearest location to purchase tickets.
