Whether you’re interested in playing for a large jackpot or just looking for some fun games to play, there are several US state lottery systems to choose from. Most state lotteries have a minimum age limit for gambling, and underage gamblers can face hefty fines. In addition to playing at your local state lotteries, you may want to consider purchasing tickets for a national lottery.
Powerball is a national lottery game that is played in all US states and the Virgin Islands. It costs $2 to play and offers a chance to win $40 million. Players select five Powerball numbers from a pool of 69. A bonus pool of numbers is also available.
Mega Millions is another national lottery game that is available in all states. It has odds of winning a grand prize of $1 billion. Mega Millions was created in 1964, and continues to be one of the most popular lottery games in the country. Unlike other lottery games, Mega Millions has an additional pool of numbers, allowing for higher jackpots.
Other state lottery systems offer a wide variety of draw games. West Virginia residents can play three draw games, including keno and scratch-offs. Wyoming also offers WyoLotto, a multi-state lottery. Delaware Lottery started in 1974 and offers eight draw games. Connecticut Lottery also offers multiple draw games. The Connecticut Lottery profits go to education, debt services, and retired employee benefits.
