Illinois started to sell tickets over the Internet but their jurisdiction to sell lottery tickets is limited to just Illinois. On the website, they require you to have an Illinois address and to swear that you are in Illinois at the time that you made the purchase but that did not stop people not in the State from purchasing tickets especially during the large 640 million MegaMillions jackpot that happened just as they opened. Because of this, they are under a fair bit of scrutiny.
