Is it legal to play U.S. lotteries from the Philippines?

According to Adrian Cooremans, The Lotter’s spokesman, it is possible to play American lotteries such as Powerball from The Philippines as”lottery rules clearly state that you do not need to be a citizen or resident to play, nor is there any law in the United States prohibiting a foreigner from winning the lottery.”

Based on those rules, residents of the Philippines can participate in the Powerball draw with official lottery tickets purchased legally on their behalf by a respected and reputable ticket messenger service, such as The Lotter.

What happens when a Filipino wins?

When a Filipino wins a smaller secondary prize in a lottery draw, the prize money is transferred directly to their personal account. However, when a Filipino wins a lottery jackpot, The Lotter makes all the necessary arrangements for the winner to travel to claim the prize in person. The winner does not pay any commission or extra payment to The Lotter, and he is offered a free of charge attorney to accompany him in the process.
