    So you have added the lottery widget to your http://my.lotro.com/home/? you see the widget but nothing happens when you click on it? This sounds like a scripting/security problem, firefox addons like noscript prevent any page from using a script without your permission. If this is not the case try another browser.

    Re: i cant enter the lottery???

    Or ... this is just a guess, since I am not a programmer ... do you live outside the United States? International laws (and the laws among the different U.S. States) regarding lotteries vary widely, so that without doing a humongous amount of legal research and compliance, U.S. companies just can't make their lotteries available outside the U.S. (or in the State of Rhode Island).

    Sapience put up a link to a page that explains this ... but I can't find it at the moment. Perhaps someone else can post it?

    This isn't the case re LoTRO lotteries. I'm from outside USA and can enter without problem. Sorry I can't help with OP question but I thought I'd just clear this point up.

    I like to take the easy route to the lottery so I just keep this address bookmarked.

    http://my.lotro.com/home/lottery

    I click there and it takes me right to the lottery page.

    No one can enter the lotteries for you. I would suggest you call support and have them help you adjust the settings in your browsers. It's probably just a check box somewhere. I use internet explorer and firefox and they both work. Until then, try this link and see if it works for you to 'bypass' using the widgets (make sure you are logged into the forums first)

    http://my.lotro.com/home/lottery

    Personally I use Firefox most of the time. I just bookmarked this page and when I want to enter the lotteries I then just click the button at the top of my screen to go to this page. It's faster for me than going to my home page and using the widget.

    Also, make sure you are accessing this directly from your browser and not from the In-game browser as I think there are some issues when trying to do this through the game panels.

    Sorry, no one can do it for you. You would have to give out your username and password, and I believe that is against the rules.

    http://my.lotro.com/home/lottery Should get you there, if not perhaps submitting a ticket.

    I answered this in your other thread but in case you missed it, make sure you are logged into the forums and click this link

    http://my.lotro.com/home/lottery

    I may help you bypass those widgets. Also make sure you are going directly from your browser and not through the in-game links.

    I'm pretty sure that the problem with the widgets is in the browser settings somewhere. I know when they started I had to do a lot of poking around on the forums to get it all set up right. I used the bypass http://my.lotro.com/home/lottery until I got it figured out. Then I realized the bypass was easier for me so I just stuck with it.

    I highly recommend contacting support. They should be able to help with your computer settings.

    Did you really make another thread because the other one did not merit the answers you wanted?

    Lizzi123 has posted a link to go straight to the lotto.

    If that doesn't help, try reading this.

    Re: cant enter the lottery and not sure why?

    My guess is that you are not logged in at the time you were on the lottery page. Check the top right to make sure you are logged in, and hopefully you should then have some lotteries available to enter.

    Re: cant enter the lottery and not sure why?

    Possibly your characters don't match the entry criteria, for some reason (wrong level brackets or wrong classes).

    If this is the case, you don't have anything to do but wait till a new lottery is posted, in which, hopefully, your characters will be able to participate. Don't forget to check the lottery widget from time to time and watch for Twitter messages about new lotteries.

    Sometimes you also get it if one lottery has ended and the next one is not yet available.

    Re: cant enter the lottery and not sure why?

    As others have said it is possible that none of your characters match the entry criteria of the currently running lotteries.

    Much more likely is that there simply is no lottery running at the time you are checking, as lotteries are not run 24/7.

    What is the highest level character you have listed in MyLotro? There are current lotteries that my level 9 can enter.

    One possibility is that Turbine has not exported your character or updated their stats on MyLotro. If that is your situation you will have to wait for Turbine to do so.

    If you have a level 75 and your join date is showing as Jan 2012, I'm guessing you have more than one account? If so, try going up to the top of this page where it says "logged in as..." and see if you can click on your name and choose a different account. Your characters may be linked to a different account than you're posting with here.
