Mega Millions Jackpot Is At A Billion! Can I Buy A Ticket With My Debit Card in Texas?
The Mega Millions is making a lot of noise again! When doesn't the Mega Millions make some noise? The next drawing is August 1, 2023, and it's at a billion! Whoa! Well, here we go again with another HUGE jackpot on the line. So, I was asked to pick up some Mega Millon tickets on the way home today. But, I realized I don't have cash on me. Wait? Do I need cash to buy a Mega Millions ticket or tickets? I've got a debit card. Will they take that?
• CAN YOU PURCHASE MEGA MILLIONS TICKETS WITH DEBIT CARDS?
My first thought was that you needed cash to buy any kind of lotto ticket, scratch-off, or Mega Millions ticket. But, I was wrong! According to The Texas Lottery website...
Retailers can accept a debit card for payment.
• YES, RETAILERS CAN ACCEPT DEBIT CARDS TO PURCHASE LOTTERY TICKETS!
If the retailer you go to chooses to, they can ACCEPT debit cards to buy Powerball tickets! As long as your card is DEBIT, they can accept it towards the purchase of lottery tickets!
• WHAT WILL RETAILERS NOT ACCEPT TO PURCHASE LOTTERY TICKETS?
According to the official Texas Lottery Website...
The State Lottery Act prohibits the purchase of tickets by credit or with Food Stamps. Retailers, at their own discretion, may accept a check for tickets.
So NO retailers WILL NOT accept Credit Cards or Food Stamps to purchase lottery tickets. It's interesting that some retailers MIGHT accept CHECKS. It is up to that retailer if they choose to accept checks.
•GOOD LUCK WITH THE NEXT DRAWING!
Well, I better head over to the convenience store and grab some tickets. You Can't WIN if you don't play and GOOD LUCK TO ALL OF YOU!
