Can You Buy National Lottery Scratch Cards Online?

The US does not have national lottery scratch cards because each state independently operates its own lottery. This means that you will have to check with your state legislators if you buy lottery scratch cards online.

There are 48 jurisdictions that run lotteries in the United States (45 states, the US Virgin Island, Puerto Rico and the District of Columbia.) If you are from Illinois or Georgia, you can buy scratch cards online from lottery sites. States like California use a paid service to sell lottery tickets online.
