Many states have several types of lotteries. These range from scratch-offs to traditional lottery games. Some lotteries have multiple draws, which means that more winners can be claimed for the same drawing. Depending on the game, you may be able to win a special prize if your zero-number selection matches the other winners. Similarly, some lottery games offer back pairs, which pay for a winning combination of two or more drawn numbers.
In addition to lottery games, some states also run pari-mutuel betting. If you plan on playing pari-mutuel, you should be at least 21 years of age. You can also purchase a ticket at a land-based casino. If you win, you will be required to pay a portion of your winnings in taxes. Some state lawmakers have proposed limiting the types of lottery games offered in their states.

There are also six states that don’t operate lotteries, including Alaska and Hawaii, because of religious or gambling-related reasons.
