Hi, James. There are separate chapters of Iowa Code involved, so the language that applies to one form of gaming in the state does not apply to the Iowa Lottery. As I've said to other commenters here, please contact your local lawmakers so they are aware of your opinion on the matter.

on line betting is legal in Iowa shouldn't that include lottery products

Hi, Bob. I had shared this detail with another commenter earlier, but I'll post it here for you as well. The question about online play here in Iowa is a legal one rather than a purely business decision. It would take a change in state law for all lottery products to be sold online. Please make your voice heard to your state lawmakers so they know your thoughts on the issue. But by sharing your opinion here, it helps us gauge the public's interest in playing online.

I would like to limit my visits to retail locations due to my age and health problems and the need to keep social distance. Is there an option to purchase my lottery tickets on-line? If not, why?
