You don't have to go to America to win big on US Powerball or travel to Europe to buy Super Enalotto tickets. Just login, pick a game and wait for the big draw!
How Does LottoFun Work?
There are a variety of ways to play the lottery online. Some companies offer a messenger service, where for a fee they'll have an agent go to a retailer and buy tickets for you. Another model is insurance-based. An operator will offer play slips online and when you win, they collect from an insurance pool and pay you. This site uses the bookmaker model. You choose your game, pick your numbers, place your stake, and purchase a "virtual betting ticket". If you make a winning bet the proceeds are paid right into your player account, it's that simple.
Winning bets are paid out just as if you had purchased a physical ticket, except that you can't request an annuity payment. You will be paid the full discounted amount in cash. Annuities are a little trick that Official Lottery Operators use to make the top prize seem more than it really is.
When lottery ticket holders win $40,000,000, they will receive that amount over 20 years, or have the option to take a lump sum payment of about half in most cases, or $20m. With virtual betting tickets, you simply collect the cash prize all at once rather than let them hold onto your money and dole out 5% each year while they make money on the interest. While there may be certain tax advantages to low yearly payouts, the overwhelming majority of big lottery winners take the lump sum payment anyway!
What Games Are Available?
There are nearly 30 worldwide jackpot lottery games to bet on including the UK National Lottery's UK Lotto, Euro Jackpot, Oz Lotto, US Powerball, Mega Millions, Irish Lotto, Finland Lotto, and several US State lottos like Florida, New York, and elsewhere.
How Can I play?
It's easy to bet on lottery tickets from home, at the office, or anywhere on a mobile device. Simply log in, pick a game like Australian Powerball, choose the numbers or use the QuickPick option, select the number of drawings you want your virtual ticket to participate in - or subscribe - and never miss another lottery draw for your favorite game, add your purchase to your cart, go to checkout to review the details, and complete any missing information needed to complete your purchase before entering your payment details to finalize your transaction. It's that simple, step by step until you log in again to check the results or wait for an email or SMS notification telling you how much you have won.
Can I Increase My Chances of Winning?
While you can't really increase your odds much, you can increase the chance to win. One way is to buy combo tickets and play multiple lotteries at less cost and higher chances of sharing in a jackpot. LottoFun offers several bundles at a reduced cost. Subscribe indefinitely and get even bigger discounts. Most of the combo tickets include 6 or 7 different lotteries. The Mega World combo offers 700 individual chances on US Powerball, Mega Millions, Euro Million, Lotto 6/49, Mega Sena, Oz Lotto, and El Gordo for about €30 a week.
There is another way to increase your chances of winning more prizes, but you would have to share your jackpots with other players, just as if everyone in your office pitched in to buy tickets when the Powerball jackpot goes through the roof. With Group Play you can share the cost with others and get more tickets. When more people are in the group, the cost of each ticket is reduced. Rather than buying a single bet, you would be buying a share in the ticket. Your chances of winning are multiplied, but prizes are divided.
Collect Your Winnings
Another advantage of purchasing virtual betting tickets overpaying a lottery messenger service to buy physical tickets for you is that you will never have to travel to collect your winnings! It can take up to 30 days to settle some bigger prizes, but your winnings are deposited right into your online account. From there you simply request a withdrawal and your winnings will be placed back on your card or another payment method. If it's not possible for them to pay out to the deposit method, for example, if you deposited with a pre-paid gift card, they will wire the money directly to your bank account.
Simply go to your account and click on Withdraw to start processing your winnings. You can also use all or part of the real money funds in your account to pay for more draws or maintain subscriptions.
