The problem: Not all player has the time to go to lottery outlet everytime to buy lottery ticket on all draw day

Yeaahh, I know some player here also missed some opportunity to make money because lack of time or nature of work. When we travelling, we also not familiar with that new place. Where and how to find the outlet or traffic jam.

This is 21 century not 19. People like to spend time online rather than traditional social hanging around at coffee shop. There are million of money floating around internet every second and day. Lottery company from other countries already implement buying lottery ticket online. I'm still not understand why in Malaysia the multi million company lottery cannot see and solved this problem?

Conclusion: Because lack of this feature, people try to find some workaround solution. "Buying illegal ticket". If they give this opportunity to new entrepreneur operate business selling lottery ticket online, I'm sure it's a win-win situation.

What do you think?

I totally agree with you, Cupin.

Why can't Malaysia implement online gambling? It's so much more convenient and hassle-free. All we need is a credit card, or maybe online bank transfer - and everything would be completed in just a matter of seconds.

Whether one can control his / her gambling habits when it comes to online gambling is another issue altogether.

I guess these billion dollar Malaysian lottery companies are just blind, and they don't see the great advantages that benefits them if they start online gambling.

Speaking of new entrepreneur venturing into this arena, why don't you start it off, Cupin :) I'm sure with your excellent programming skills, this would turn you into a multi-millionaire overnight... hahaha

I realize it's not an easy job but it is doable. To make it working really need further testing and secure the system to prevent frauding. Need big money to invest for startup but I'm sure the ROI is fast :) . And easy is selling topup credit for buy lottery ticket hahaha. I don't mind they take my idea!

I don't think the business can be setup because they not open any reseller/outlet anymore. I hope they will read this posting and implement the system. I already have that prototype that I coded for a week. They can buy from me if they want, the bidding start at rm1B :)

yo yo yo....online ticket!!!!! hmm..in my opinion, it will never be materialise...firstly, ticket sold in swak is rm1.10 and sabah if not mistaken is rm1.15 compare to west masia only rm1...so if got online ticket, then there will be an issue between state government and the bankers....of course for us player, who would want to pay more 10-15%??? secondly, the bankers themselves r encouraging ppl to buy underground when the lowered the starter prize winning to rm180. In fact most legal bankers r the underground bankers...yeah..the reason is simple, do u think they r happy to pay the increasing taxes to the government????
they definitely more advance 2 just by using sms and also online account...so u understand now why bankers r "BLIND"?????
