Ohio residents don’t even have to make a trip to the convenience store anymore to buy their lottery tickets as Lotto.com has made its arrival in the Buckeye State.
Lotto.com Expands Its Reach
Ohio is now the seventh state in which you can find Lotto.com, a Jersey City-based enterprise that facilitates the online sale of lottery products. According to Lotto.com’s website, the company originally entered the New Jersey market in cooperation with the convenience store chain, QuickChek.
“We are no stranger to today’s digital world as we have been providing consumers with convenience through mobile ordering, our mobile rewards app, and the ability to order delivery online,” said QuickChek Vice President of Marketing and Operations, Don Leech. “Our partnership with Lotto.com will enable us to further meet the needs of consumers who prefer to shop and play online.”
What Can You Buy?
In addition to Lotto.com’s newest market in Ohio, those within the borders and of legal age in New Jersey, New York, Texas, Colorado, Minnesota, and Arkansas can also procure lottery tickets through Lotto.com.
There is no app to download and no deposit necessary. All you need to do is go to the website and purchase the precise dollar amount of tickets and that’s it. Quick and easy which makes it seamless for those who enjoy playing the lottery but don’t always have time to run to the store.
In Ohio, the following games are available for purchase online:
- Mega Millions
- Ohio Pick 3
- Lucky for Life
- Official state scratch ticket offerings (available on the go and desktop)
And those in and around 17 W 5th Avenue in Columbus, can visit Lotto.com’s retail location, the Player’s Café.
