To buy from retail, you can refill your score in a lottery drink slip and give that ticket to a retailer who will give you a proof of purchase.

To purchase lottery tickets online, you must have a Playwin card which can be found by a retailer, casino or email. This card comes with an option of online payment, including 200,500,1000 and a value of 5000 rupees already.

With the help of online international lotteries, Indian citizens can win big prizes. Powerball and Mega Millions are popular international lotteries. Indian gambling laws do not apply to international lotteries because the draw takes place in any other country so that gambling laws of a particular state do not apply to those who play it.
