How to play the US lottery without having to fly to Washington

As much as we love the lottery, we can admit to a little bit of jealousy when it comes to overseas jackpots. That isn't to say that our record-setting £161 million lottery in 2011 wasn't impressive, but it's hard to measure up to the US’s $1.586 billion as won in 2016. There can be a problem in signing up for overseas lotteries, however. Even when it is completely legal, as it often is, there can be websites which lock us out due to regional restrictions.
