So I was going to buy a minecraft gift code for my friend, and I ran into a problem.
  • Due to legal restrictions, we cannot currently accept registrations from residents of Illinois.
Can anyone explain why this is here, if there is anyway around this issue, and when can I expect it to go away.

I'm having this issue too, I just started hosting a server for my family to play on and I decided to buy the game so I could play with them.

I just had the same problem.  I tried this morning with multiple cards and accounts but nothing worked. I know Illinois sucks but minecraft is a game. Why can't I buy it?

I am trying to purchase a Gift Code from Illinois. I am getting the same message refusing registration from Illinois. PayPal is not a payment option for Gift Codes, so I cannot use the workaround suggested above. Please let me know if there is any way I can purchase a Gift Code. Can PayPal be made an option for Gift Codes? I need a quick solution.

Thank you.

The reason is because it is now illegal to purchase minecraft in illinois because there was a case involving a hacker using minecraft to get games cracked so if you use a different state or use paypal for buying it you can get minecraft but you cant get it otherwise.
