Having an online lottery subscription can be a lot more convenient than buying individual tickets. Online subscriptions allow you to purchase tickets for every drawing you’d like, and allow you to check past results and winning numbers. The price of the subscription varies according to the number of drawings you choose. You also have the option of extending your subscription. If you win, you can claim your prize online or in person. Depending on the state you live in, winnings over $500 can also be claimed online.
