Virginia Lottery set to launch online


The Virginia Lottery is set to launch online games in July that will allow users to play popular Virginia lottery games on their smart devices or computers.

Starting July 1, Virginia Lottery will now offer games such as Mega Millions, Powerball, and Cash4Life online.

Instant-win games, which are an online version of scratcher games, will also be offered online. New instant-win games will be added every few weeks, and popular daily draw games such as Pick 3, pick 4, and Cash 5 will be added within the first year.

“We’re excited to be introducing this new way of playing our games on July 1, the very first day it’s allowed under legislation we requested from the 2020 General Assembly, ” said Virginia Lottery Executive Director Kevin Hall. “We feel it’s important to continue to meet Virginia consumers where they already are, and where they expect to find us: online.”
