But are you eligible to buy the tickets
when in Canada and would you win one of the huge lottery jackpots? Is it
possible to claim the prizes after winning? Fortunately, that is possible. The
available records show that the $1.6 billion
mega million draws are not limited to the Americans. You can win
them from Canada or any other country if you have an internet connection.
That does not mean that you should play any
of the mega jackpots. Before crossing borders, start by reading the laws of
that state you are visiting. Some states do not sell lottery tickets and others
have deadlines for purchase of any ticket. A quick example, Arizona Lottery
Shops sell tickets at least two hours before drawing and those in many other
states will sell them until 15 minutes before drawing.

The USA PowerBall has remained the biggest
lottery game people in the USA play. The tickets are sold through many US
lotteries because it is a shared pool game. The draw takes place each Wednesday
and Saturday at 10:59 pm Eastern Standard Time. Unlike other lottery games, the
draw is usually a combination of a cash game and a jackpot game.
In the PowerBall draw, the operators draw
five white balls form a small drum containing 59 balls, each bearing a number
within the range of 1 and 59. They then draw another number from a drum
containing 39 balls each featuring a number between 1 and 39. If the machine

Canada easily. All you need is a computer and an internet connection.
- USA Mega Millions
Mega Millions has stood as the
second-largest lottery game in the United States for many years. The $1
multi-jurisdictional lottery game is played throughout the country. Currently,
it has better winning odds for players than PowerBall. The draw only takes
place on Fridays and Tuesdays at 11 pm Eastern Standard Time and WSB-TV
broadcasts all the draws live. At times, they conduct the draws from Times
Square New York.
The rules of USA Mega Millions are similar
to those of PowerBall. You will have to match five numbers on white balls and
the sixth number on the Gold ball. After matching the six numbers, you will win
the jackpot. Players who match 2, 3, 4, 5 numbers win handsome prizes. On March
2007, a New Jersey
couple won $390 million. They decided to quit their jobs to start a
new life. To win the Mega Millions of Jackpots when in Canada, you need to buy
the online tickets through third parties.
If you plan to enter any other lottery apart from the Mega-Millions or Powerball games, check the rules before providing your information. United States lotteries are enticing gams that have continuously captured the attention and interest of millions of people from all parts of the world. The draw games have made many millionaires and multimillionaires since the first draws. You can play games and get your rewards when still in Canada. Also, you do not need to be a United States citizen to get the reward. Start buying your tickets online.
