Lottery officials have announced plans to offer a service that will allow players to buy tickets for its Powerball, Mega Millions and Carolina Cash 5 games by subscription through its website.

Officials hope to begin the service in November. It's designed for players who want to subscribe in advance to a set of numbers for multiple drawings.

Under the plan, a subscription to at least two weeks of drawings for one of the three games is required for any purchase. Players cannot use the service to buy a single draw ticket.

So many mix messages here. First, when buying tickets at a store they will only accept cash, but later this year users can buy with debit or credit for one purchase.

The state opposed and evicted sweepstake cafes which is basically runs on same premise they will be doing.

Debit cards have always been allowed for purchasing lottery tickets. However, it is up to the individual retailer to accept cash only.
Some of the software used for online sweepstakes could be changed to allow more or less winners.
