Either or. You'll have to look up on the website the number ranges.

I can get your ticket, write your name on it, and text you a picture of the whole thing.

One Powerball play with the Extra is $3 USD or $4.25 CAD. I'm offering this service with no extra fees or costs. Just Paypal me the CAD and you'll have your chance to win.

So you survived the sharknado in Texas? Good to know. We were a little worried.

We fired our guns into the air to fend off the sharks, only to feed the tornado bullets which made it stronger.

Many a great Texan died that day.

What the hell?

Apparently US Customs and Border Patrol agents are enforcing an old law that prohibits importing lottery tickets into the USA. You can buy them, but you can't come back to Canada, and return to the USA with them:

CTV Vancouver: Border guards' Powerball warning | CTV Vancouver News

Here's the law (referenced, but not explained in the video.)

https://www.law.cornell.edu/uscode/text/19/1305

19 U.S. Code 1305 - Immoral articles; importation prohibited

(a) Prohibition of importation
All persons are prohibited from importing into the United States from any foreign country any book, pamphlet, paper, writing, advertisement, circular, print, picture, or drawing containing any matter advocating or urging treason or insurrection against the United States, or forcible resistance to any law of the United States, or containing any threat to take the life of or inflict bodily harm upon any person in the United States, or any obscene book, pamphlet, paper, writing, advertisement, circular, print, picture, drawing, or other representation, figure, or image on or of paper or other material, or any cast, instrument, or other article which is obscene or immoral, or any drug or medicine or any article whatever for causing unlawful abortion, or any lottery ticket, or any printed paper that may be used as a lottery ticket, or any advertisement of any lottery. No such articles whether imported separately or contained in packages with other goods entitled to entry, shall be admitted to entry; and all such articles and, unless it appears to the satisfaction of the appropriate customs officer that the obscene or other prohibited articles contained in the package were inclosed therein without the knowledge or consent of the importer, owner, agent, or consignee, the entire contents of the package in which such articles are contained, shall be subject to seizure and forfeiture as hereinafter provided:

You can't even cross the border with a Lotto Max ticket in your wallet. Google newspaper archives reference a couple articles where 6/49 tickets were seized in the 80's by customs when Americans went across the border to Ontario to buy 6/49 tickets.

Is it still "importing" if it was bought there in the first place? Sounds like room for some serious legal wrangling. Then again... stuff the damn thing down your crotch and tell them you're coming across for gas, WTF are they gonna do?

Or rent yourself a mailbox in Blaine and stash it there... leave it with a "trusted" friend... bury it in a box along 0 Ave....

Yeah. Importing in this case just means bringing it into the USA. Doesn't matter the origin. Stupid Prohibition era law, but now the application of it seems to be to prevent foreign lottery scams from entering the US.

If you had the 1.4 billion dollar winning ticket shoved down your pants, you're probably going to be nervous enough to get made by CBP and end up strip searched.

The CTV bit suggested leaving the tickets in the US too.

If you have the winning ticket, I'm sure it's not too much trouble to hire a lawyer to *bring it back* to US soil somehow, legally speaking.

Venmo, Interac Transfer, or Google Wallet also work.

When I got ha Friday night the US officer asked me if I was doing anything else. I had planned on buying a ticket, but forgot. He was like "you're not sure you're doing anything else aside from gas". I told him no, and he was adiment I was lying. "Well i guess I'm going to have to send you inside for lying to me"

I was like alright then, whatever..all the while he's keeping a straight face. Finally he says so you're not buying a powerball ticket it's a billion dollars. I was like oh ya I did plan on it. He said see I told you that you were lying, both had a chuckle and I was on my way.
