Do I need to live in Indiana in order to participate in myLOTTERY?

Can I sign up for Hoosier Lottery communications without completing the form on myLOTTERY?
Alerts for draw game winning numbers and jackpot amounts can easily be obtained via text messages by simply providing your mobile phone number. You can find a sign-up widget on several pages throughout the Hoosier Lottery website for Text Alert and Email News sign up.
What happens if I signed up for Hoosier Lottery text alerts or enews only and then decide to sign up for myLOTTERY?
If you previously signed up for text alerts only and then decide to sign up for the myLOTTERY program with your same mobile phone number, you must first opt out of your current text service. You can opt out by texting STOP to 46945 before proceeding with completion of myLOTTERY sign up form. As part of the process of completing your myLOTTERY registration form, you are welcome to then select text alerts again as a communication option. The benefit of opting for text alerts within the myLOTTERY program is that you have many more selection opportunities with text alert frequency and game-specific information. Additional help with text alerts can be found at: /smshelp.aspx If you previously signed up for enews only and decide to sign up for myLOTTERY, your email account will automatically be merged to become a myLOTTERY account once your registration is confirmed.
