What is geolocation and how does it work?

By law, you must be located in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania to play online games for money. Your location is verified by a process called geolocation. You will not be able to play online for money if the system cannot determine your location.


When playing on mobile, your device’s location services, GPS and Wi-Fi will help us to determine your location.  Your mobile device’s Wi-Fi must be turned on and a minimum of three Wi-Fi locations must be visible to the device in order for the system to accurately triangulate your location.


Note: You can deposit and withdraw money into/from your Lottery account while outside of Pennsylvania, but you will not be permitted to play.
