Hello,

No, you cannot. It is unlawful in the US to purchase foreign lottery tickets online as the only legal lotteries in the US are the ones run by individual state governments. Also because of conflicting laws among the various nations in the world there is no such thing as a legitimate international lottery.

The only way someone in the US can win a foreign lottery is if he buys his ticket abroad where the lottery is run.
