Today's a great day to win the lottery. In fact, every day is a great day to win the lottery. But, you can't win if you don't play. Now, you can play the lottery without having to head down to the local gas station or supermarket to buy your ticket.

Depending on what state you live in, you can purchase lottery tickets and play along with your state's official lottery app. Play Powerball, Mega Millions and there are dozens of scratch offs to choose from.

Just be aware of the fine print. Not all states have a state lottery and depending on where you live, certain gambling apps aren't allowed in the Google Play Store. For these apps, you'll need to download them from the official website for your state.

First up are the states with available apps. The second part of this list will direct you to your state's official lottery website.
