How to make payments to LotteryNetwork sites

I thought I would write an article on how to buy lottery tickets and to make payments using a LotteryNetwork enabled websites.

This tutorial was made using:

Step 1:
Visit the website: how else you gonna buy tickets?

Step 2:
Pick the lottery game you wish to play by clicking the "play now" button beneath the relevant game, I personally like playing Euromillions and this is why I have chosen the EuroMillions site and the Euro Millions game.

Step 3:
Once you have clicked the play button, the page will re-load with the game you wish to play loaded into the ticket selection box.

Step 4:
Enter your numbers and continue.

Do note the following before you continue:

1. Latest results of the game:

This elements displays the results of the last two games.

If you like you can use the link provided to view the prize breakdown and winners.

2. Game information:

This section outlines the next jackpot size, time till we shut down accepting tickets, and an opportunity to Like the game on Facebook.

If the Jackpot is not showing, it may means the official lottery has not updated the new jackpot to their site or our cron has malfunctioned and is waiting for a manual update.

3. Lottery Syndication

This little box outlines the top 5 syndicates. We also have a Google Plus link so that you can add the page to your Google circle.

4. Lottery Ticket Board
The lottery ticket board has a number of elements:

Ticket price: This is the price per row or line of tickets

Select day of week: If you purchase a ticket for a number of draws you can opt for your ticket to be entered in ALL the draws, i.e Tue / Fri or specific draws such for instance, only Tue draws.

Start date: This is the draw date that you wish to enter your first ticket into, it may be in two weeks time.

How many tickets: Select how many tickets you wish to purchase.

How many draws: Select how many consecutive draws you would like your tickets to be entered into. Note this works in conjunction with the "Select day of week" option so if you enter your ticket into 10 draws, and you have opted for the Tue draw, it will then be entered into all consecutive Tuesday draws.

Fill with quick picks: This generates random quick pick numbers and fills the board for you.

You will notice that the cost of your purchase will be displayed below the form as well as how many tickets you have purchased and for how many draws.

If you are logged into your account, you will have an option to duplicate previous purchases.
