A recent decision by Commissioners at the Ohio Lottery has paved the way for the US state of Ohio to sell Powerball Lottery tickets in addition to the Mega Millions tickets that it currently offers to its players. This is yet another state which will sell both the Powerball Lottery tickets and Mega Millions tickets in a move which many believe to be another step towards a genuine US national lottery which could then pave the way for a world lottery.

Over the last twelve months or so there has been an increasing trend of agreements being made by the various state lotteries in the US to sell both Mega Millions and Powerball Lottery tickets. Recently we have seen the US states of Kansas, New York, Texas, Iowa and Maryland all agree to sell both of US’ inter-state lottery’s tickets and now Ohio joins the group too. It can only be a matter of time before we see either one or two actual US national lotteries with tickets being available to players anywhere in the US.

Even though more players means that the jackpots get won more often and therefore the jackpots are smaller the real excitement, especially for lottery fans across the world, is the fact that a true US national lottery could well be the start of an amalgamation of large lotteries across the world with the view of creating a world lottery. A lottery where players anywhere on the planet could buy lottery tickets in stores and kiosk across the world or they could buy online lotto tickets in a similar way to how you can buy tickets for the many other world lotteries, only this one would be a big ‘en.
