By law, you must be physically located in the state of Pennsylvania to play PA Lottery games online for real money or bonus funds. Your location is verified by a process called geolocation.
Your device’s location services, GPS and Wi-Fi help the geolocation plugin determine that you are currently in Pennsylvania while accessing the online games.
On a mobile device, such as phone or tablet, the geolocation is a feature on the PA Lottery Official App. The app must be installed so the geolocation can determine you are in Pennsylvania.
When playing on a computer, you must install the geolocation plugin by logging in to your PA iLottery account and visiting “My VIP” > “Check My Location” and following the download prompt. It will then be able to determine your computer’s location at the time of play.
Note: You can deposit and withdraw money into/from your PA iLottery account while outside of Pennsylvania, but you will not be permitted to play.
