When the US Powerball reached the crazy number of $1.6 billion (₹11,000crore) back in 2016, everyone wanted a piece of the action.
The good news is, if you're in India, you can get in on the action for this American lottery game, and others around the World. Ticket buying service LottoSmile can do it for you.
You don't have to fly to America, stand in line, or even leave your home. Set up a free account with LottoSmile.in and they will do the work for you.
Agents go into stores in the US, buy your ticket for you and immediately scan it into your account.
1. Purchase your ticket
Once you've registered and made your ticket purchase, one of LottoSmile's representatives goes into a retailer and places your ticket on your behalf. The ticket is then securely stored.
Once purchased, the lottery tickets are scanned, and you'll see the exact ticket with details of when and where it was purchased. This will be available in plenty of time before the actual lottery draw is made.
LottoSmile guarantees that you will see your ticket before the draw. This can be done either on their website or Android/iPhone app!
You might not like the idea of spending money online and trusting someone else with what could be a valuable lottery ticket.
Don't be worried. LottoSmile has been doing this since 2002, and has paid over US$100 million in prizes to its customers. They've had players win jackpots, including a lady in Panama who collected US$30M!
All transactions are protected by GeoTrust 128-bit SSL security, and you get a money-back guarantee on your first ticket purchase!
If that's not enough to convince you, they also have 24/7 customer support via Live Chat, email and social media.
