No- absolutely not. (Unfortunately, people actually ask this question!) We have been operating since 2010 and our owners have met with and been background checked by the California Lottery Security Division. The California Lottery spokesperson has been quoted in some of the extensive media coverage of our company that they have received no complaints about LottoGopher and that our service is in fact legal. By visiting our User Terms & Conditions link at the bottom of the page, you will see that every ticket you order always remains legally owned by you. Our In The Press link will direct you to many media outlets that have covered our service over the past few years. Any jackpot winning ticket is always investigated by the CA Lottery before being paid out, making it all but impossible for anyone to redeem a ticket that belongs to one of our Members. In addition, our owners are respected businesspeople and longtime residents of California, who's interest is in operating a legitimate company and service, not in illegal short term gains. As a practical matter, why would we want to do that? If one of our Members was the jackpot winner, we would benefit greatly from the public relations exposure of having a winner. We WANT you to win!
