 Q5.      Is it possible to see a comprehensive result which shows the draw date, winning number, number of winners and the number of prizes awarded etc. etc.

 

 A5.      Yes, please go to http://megamillions.com and click on any draw date under the Recent Winning Picks. It even shows you the estimated jackpot and lets you play the draw video if you wish to see that too.

 

 Q6.      I purchased 30 sets of numbers and received a confirmation email. In the email, I don't understand the 30 sets of numbers under the column title "As submitted by you" and another 30 sets of numbers under the column title "Sorted by the Powerball". What's that for?

 

 A6.      Both columns contain the same set of numbers except that the numbers in the first column are sorted by the first five 2-digit numbers and the numbers in the second column are sorted by the powerball which is the 6th 2-digit number.  This help you compare the winning number with your numbers quickly and easily.

 

 Q7.      I have won $18 on MegaMillions lottery tickets? How can I redeem the prizes?.

 

 A7.      We understand that people play for the jackpot and not for the smaller prizes.  You can keep on accumulating your small prizes until the total value of your winnings exceed $100 or they have one month left to expire. Then you can send the tickets back to us for redemption. We charge 5% with a minimum of $5 as our commission plus the cost of transaction if any. In case you win a larger prize you can choose to travel to New Jersey and claim the prize yourself or we can do it for you. In either case, as described in the Terms of Service, we will have a 5% share in all winnings. 

 

            Please send the tickets back to us by regular mail to the same RETURN ADDRESS as is found on any of our recent mail.  Prizes can only be redeemed from New Jersey. Please note that all Megamillion and Powerball prizes must be claimed within 1 year. Please check http://www.state.nj.us/lottery/about/faq/faq-drawings.htm.

 

 Q8.      What are the tax requirements on lottery prizes.

 

 A8.      The Energy Policy Act of 1992, section 1942, requires the New Jersey Lottery to withhold a minimum 25% of all prize payments to any Lottery winner who has won more than $5,000 on any Lottery wager. At the end of the year, the winner will receive a W2-G form to properly credit the withholding as a tax payment on their federal income tax form

 

Winners who do not possess a social security number are subject to a 30% federal income tax deduction on any prize over $599.50.

 

Please refer to last para on NJ Lottery.

 

 Q10.   What other lottery tickets are you selling besides Mega Millions?

 

 A10.    Powerball Lottery Tickets.  

 

 Q12.    I am not a US citzen and I don't have a green card either. Can I play the lottery?

 

 A12.    Sure, Everyone, American, non-American, Resident or non-Resident can play and claim the lottery prize. Please check Tax Requirements on this official web site http://www.state.nj.us/lottery/didiwin/8-0_did_i_win.htm?6 which states that winners who do not possess a Social Security Number are subject to a 30% federal income tax deduction. If you win a prize, you need to be within the US to claim it. This applies to all: Amercians, non-Americans.

.

 Q13.    If I win a prize, how much time do I have to claim the prize? 

 

 A13.    Megamillion and Powerball prizes can be claimed within one year..

 

 Q14.    Can I pay by check or money order? 

 

 A14.    No, that is a lot of headache. You can use a credit card with a small credit limit or you can buy gift cards which works exactly like credit cards. Please check http://www.bankofamerica.com/giftcard/.

 

 Q16.    What is your refund policy? 

 

 A16.    We practice a no refund policy as we can always prove that your ordered tickets were actually purchased.

 

 Q17.    Can I legally purchase lottery tickets through you and claim prizes? 

 

 A17.    Yes, you can do that.  We buy your tickets from a state licensed lottery  retailer. American citizens, green card holders, foreigners, legals,
illegals and/or travellers are all allowed to buy tickets from any retailer
in any state in the country. In addition you can request any one to buy
tickets for you or your friends/relatives can gift tickets to you bought in
any state.  That is what we do, we buy tickets on your behalf, charge you
shipping and handling for our living and hold a 5% stake in each winning
ticket. It is just like other people who form a group and play collectively.
Nothing matters as long as you have a winning ticket in possession bought
from a lottery retailer.  The only thing you have to take care of is to
claim it from the state the ticket is bought from.

 

 

 Q18.    When I purchase one Megamillion ticket for 7 draws, do you consider that 1 ticket or 7 tickets for shipping and handling charges? 

 

 A18.    7 tickets. By the way, shipping and handling for 1 ticket or 7 tickets is the same i.e. $6.99.

 

 Q21.    I have never received my second set of numbers for the order: Purchase of 10x2 Megamillion tickets - Ref.12345?

 

 A21.    The same set of numbers you received were good for 2 draws. Please check your tickets. There should be a date range like the following printed on the tickets:

 

                    Nov1 05-Nov4 05

 

            This means that your tickets were good for the draws held on November 1 and November 4, 2005.

 

 Q22.    What is the biggest winning ticket you have purchased to date?
 

 A22.    We have a second prize winner (Powerball with Powerplay $2,000,000) in April 2014), a second prize winner ($250,000) in 2007 and a few third prize winners ($5,000 and $10,000) within the last 9 years. Pedro Quezada of Passaic NJ, a sole winner of the Powerball jackpot ($338 million) in 2013, bought his ticket from a store located within one mile radius from where we buy your tickets.
