Lotteries are everyone’s dream getaway from the financial problems of life. Every person at some point in his or her life has dreamt about winning a big lottery, and how they will spend the earnings. Especially when you hear about the huge sums of money being offered by the big lotteries of the USA and Europe. Lotteries in India, without the authorization of the government, was made a punishable offense by the British under an 1860 law, while gambling was altogether banned by an 1867 legislation. However, since independence, several changes have been made in the law and states have been allowed to frame their own set of rules and regulations pertaining to lotteries.
As of 2017, there are 13 states in India that allow for state lotteries to take place. People residing outside these states felt left out of this chance to make a big winning. But with the penetration of the internet, all individuals residing in India now have a chance to buy their favorite international lotteries, without the fear of doing something illegal, as it is legal in India to buy lottery tickets in India from an international website. The best lotto sites like LottoLand in India offer an array of different lotteries for their customers to choose from.
