No, our e-Instant games are available only online through the DC iLottery platform.
Who can play iLottery?
You must be 18 years or older, have an account with sufficient funds and be physically located within The District of Columbia boundaries to play iLottery.
The Lottery may take necessary action against an underage player who circumvents or attempts to circumvent controls to prevent underage play. Actions may include, but are not limited to, immediate stoppage of play, account closure, and confiscation of winnings.
Do I have to be in Washington, D.C. to play iLottery?
Yes and NO. The platforms have a geo-fencing feature that requires iLottery players to be within Washington, D.C. and not within restricted play areas of the District.
However, you can login and access your iLottery Account from anywhere. This includes depositing and withdrawing funds to/from your account.
Can you explain where "restricted play areas within the District" are where I cannot play iLottery?
There are certain areas within the District where gambling is prohibited. These areas include all federal enclaves such as the Washington Monument and the Lincoln Memorial that fall within the area defined under the Shipstead-Luce Act that includes the monumental core of the District, along the Potomac waterfront and Rock Creek Park.
Where does iLottery revenue go?
Net profit from iLottery will go to the District’s General Fund to support public programs, services and initiatives.
What is the difference between a Quick Pick and a Quick Play?
We are so glad you asked! A Quick Pick is a number selection option for players where the computer generates the numbers. A Quick Play is a complete play, same play type as your previous selection, with a new set of numbers already generated by the computer.
To register for an account, you must be 18 years of age or older and pass an identity verification process, which requires the submission of the last four digits of their Social Security Number.
