Many online ticket sellers will ask for you to register, thereafter you can select a specific lottery to purchase a ticket from. They will have people buy the ticket for you from a reputable local lottery retailer and keep the ticket in a safe place. If you win, you will get an email. You can also check the official lottery web pages to match winning numbers. If you win, tickets may be sent for you to collect the winnings, or you can authorize the company to collect the money on your behalf and then transfer it to your bank account. Some websites will automatically cash smaller prize winning and put it back into your account with them. You may need to verify your identity and fill in any appropriate tax forms for security reasons. Remember that some lotteries like people to appear in person to collect any large prizes like jackpots.
