LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- The Kentucky lottery is getting a little more high-tech.

Kentucky residents now have the option to play the lottery online.

Players with computers can buy Powerball, Mega Millions, and Cash Ball tickets -- as well as five "Instant Play" games. Kentucky Lottery officials say they're trying to attract younger players who already make a lot of purchases online.

Tickets will still be available at retailers state-wide.

Michigan and Georgia already sell lottery tickets online.
