Illinois, Georgia and Minnesota are the states that are actually selling State sponsored lottery tickets online right now. In the USA it is illegal to operate a private lottery which is generally defined as a contest in which contestants pay to enter and the prize is awarded at random. The exception is for a nonprofit organization's who occasionally do fundraising raffles.

Customer: replied 8 months ago.
can these online tickets be bought from anywhere or one has to be physically present in USA and these states only?
Expert:  Maverick replied 8 months ago.

It appears that you have to be physically present in these States only. But I would need to do more in-depth research to find a definitive answer.
