Finding an Online Lottery Site

Before you go out and spend your hard-earned money on just any online lottery site, there’s something you should know. As with anything else that involves money, you need to learn to distinguish between a site which is legit and one that’s not.

First, a legit online lottery site will always have a secure connection. This is important because you don’t want your payment details to be compromised when buying your lottery ticket. A good thing to look out for is a lock icon on the top of your browser that signifies the site is secure. If you don’t see it, don’t hesitate to leave the site and under no circumstances leave any personal or financial details.

In terms of playing requirements, make sure you meet the minimum age if stipulated. After all, you wouldn’t want to see all your winnings void just because you’re underage.

Another factor to look at is if the site takes a cut of your winnings. A legitimate site will never take any commissions off your winnings. If that’s the case, you’ll have no trouble finding another commission free online lottery site.

When purchasing lottery tickets online, it’s also important that you do it using a secured connection like the one at your home. Avoid buying tickets over public wi-fi or other public networks.

Play the Lotteries of The World

Luck has no boundaries and buying a ticket online allows you to participate in the world’s biggest official lotteries even if you live in a different country. One of the most popular lotto games is the U.S PowerBall, and for good reason- the $1.58 billion (yes, billion!) world record jackpot was set by Powerball on 13 January 2016! With a top prize that starts at $40 million and no cap on the maximum amount it can reach, it’s no surprise this American lotto has become a global phenomenon.

Jackpot hunters from around the world also enjoy the U.S MegaMillions ($15 million starting jackpot and guaranteed $1 million second place prize with 1 in 15 odds of winning one of nine prize divisions) and EuroMillions (Europe’s premier lottery), just to name a few.

How Does It Work?

Playing lotto online is as simple as…playing the lotto! After selecting your lottery of choice, all you need to do is select your winning numbers, add to cart and purchase your ticket. From there, a local agent will purchase the ticket on your behalf then scan the ticket to your account. Following the draw, if and when you win a cash prize, you will be notified and your account will be automatically credited with your winnings.

 

How to Increase Chances of Winning

Spread out- The simplest way to Increase your chances of winning the lottery is playing more games, more often. Not winning one doesn’t mean you can’t win another. Don’t put all your money on one game. Spread your luck out by entering multiple games in the same week.

Join a lottery pool- Get a group together at work, school or anywhere else and boost your chances through bigger group buying power. So ok, you won’t be a sole winner, but I doubt you’d object to sharing a $100 million jackpot with a few friends.

Join an online syndicate- With online lottery sites, you can play with what is called a ‘syndicate’, where the site gathers the other players for you so you don’t have to do a thing. Same as a lottery pool, this will allow you to buy more lottery tickets (or ‘shares’) for only a fraction of the cost.

Don’t pick consecutive numbers- If playing a jackpot with 5 winning numbers where the numbers go up to 55, the total of your numbers should be between 104 and 176. According to studies, 70% of all lottery jackpots have sums that fall within that range.

Go random- Use the random number generator feature available on all authorized online lottery sites. Since winning online lottery numbers are picked randomly, doesn’t it make sense to do the same for your ticket numbers?

 

#1 Advantage of Online Lottery: Security

Aside from the obvious convenience of playing every major global lottery without budging from your computer, another awesome thing is the fact that your ticket will always be safe and secure in its digital form online. Never again will it wind up in the washing machine or in your dog’s belly. So never worry about the safety or whereabouts of your ticket again.

With all the great benefits of online lottery, why not go ahead and try your luck for yourself. Except for a few bucks, you’ve got nothing to lose! Who knows, you might just win it all in the process…
