LottoGo Review

LottoGo is a rebrand of World Lottery Club, and it looks determined to do better this time around.

LottoGo retains a lot of features from World Lottery Club, like its game selections and its top-notch security. At first glance, then, it's easy to dismiss the rebranding as a simple change of logo.

But there are some notable improvements here, like the expanded range of scratch cards and virtual games, as well as the commendable efforts to improve customer service. Sure, some limitations also remain, like the narrow range of payment methods and the fact that you can only bet on lottery game outcomes. Overall, though, the shift from World Lottery Club to LottoGo seems to have included new steps in the right direction.

LottoGo is a solid choice, especially for new players who need more information about each lottery game. It's definitely worth a look.

Registration 4.2

Registering for a LottoGo account takes less than a minute.

LottoGo only asks for a few personal details like your name, phone number, and address. Just fill out the form and you're good to go (pun intended). You won't even need to supply financial details until you want to put funds into your account.

However, you have to be from a country that permits online lotteries. While LottoGo caters to an international audience, it doesn't take sign-ups from countries where online lottery is illegal (e.g., the United States). You'll find similar restrictions on most lottery sites, so I'm not holding this against LottoGo.

Bonuses, Promotions, and Games 3.5

Regular Lottery Games

LottoGo offers a good range of single play games.

With 17 lottery games, LottoGo gives players a good range of jackpots to bet on. Blockbuster games like Euromillions and the US Powerball are here, of course, but you'll also find less popular games like the Finnish Lotto or Irish Lotto. There are even seasonal games like El Gordo, the Spanish Christmas draw.

Players who knew LottoGo in its previous life as World Lottery Club will find no surprises here. World Lottery Club --- and now, LottoGo --- has never been poised to compete with powerhouses like theLotter when it comes to game variety. Despite that, it's good to see LottoGo maintain a good range with the games it does carry.

I have to admit, though: it would have been nice if LottoGo took the rebranding as an opportunity to expand its game selection.

Take a look at all their available games below:

Syndicates

LottoGo's syndicates are affordable group play options.

Like World Lottery Club, LottoGo also offers syndicates for most of its single play games. The only omissions here are the Australia Monday and Wednesday Lottos, as well as the seasonal El Gordo and El Niño games.

LottoGo throws in an extra deal for players interested in the European jackpots: the Euro Combo bundle. This package combines syndicate shares for the Euromillions and Eurojackpot games. For just £9.00, you'll get:

  • 55 shares for 2 separate Euromillions draws
  • 45 shares for 1 Eurojackpot draw

That's a great deal as far as value-for-money goes. If you're not averse to group play and syndicates, the Euro Combo is one of the better ways to spend your money.


Interactive Games

LottoGo adds more scratch cards, more games, and bigger prizes to keep you busy.

LottoGo has 38 virtual scratch cards that can help you, well, scratch that playing itch. These cards use the same mechanics as their analog counterparts. All you need to do is click each card's cell to find matches. Get the right number of matches and you can claim a prize.

How big are the prizes? They can go from £250 to as high as £182,500. The pot depends on your chosen game.

Naturally, scratch cards with higher prizes tend to have slightly longer odds. You'll find some surprises, though: Daily Pocket Filler, which features the biggest potential payout at £182,500, has lower odds and cheaper tickets than the Euromillions scratch cards, which top out at £150,000.

I've got one small gripe here: LottoGo seems to have ditched the demo games that World Lottery Club used to offer for these scratch cards. Now you'll have to buy at least 1 card to see what each game is like.

If you're more interested in casino games like blackjack and slots, you can pick from a whopping 84 games at LottoGo. The bulk of these games --- 65 in all --- are virtual slot machines with different themes. All of these come with a demo, so you can get a feel for each game before betting any of your money.

New members get free spins on at least one game, too. When I signed up, I got to play the Dragon Shrine slot game for free.

Aside from slots, there are other games like Keno (a lottery-like game), blackjack, and roulette. Like the virtual slot games, all of these feature demos. If you're not familiar with a game, or if you'd like to get a feel for it first, you can run a demo first.

LottoGo builds these games on HTML5 and JavaScript, so most browsers won't have problems running any of these games. The animations worked seamlessly for me. Most of the games I tried were eye-catching without being too cluttered or messy on the screen.

Trust and Security 4.5

LottoGo is as safe and reliable as ever.

LottoGo continues to safeguard all transactions on its website using bank-grade SSL encryption.

There's more than technology backing up LottoGo's legitimacy, though. The website boasts of licenses and oversight from the Isle of Man Gambling Supervision Commission and the UK Gambling Commission, as well as the Irish National Excise License Office.

A quick check on the UK commission's site also showed that LottoGo's parent company, Annexio Ltd., has no records of sanctions or penalties. Plus, its licenses, including the one for LottoGo, are all up-to-date and active.

LottoGo has both the technological safeguards and the legal credentials to assure you of a safe, convenient playing experience.

Lottery Education Materials

LottoGo earns two thumbs up 👍 👍 for its impressive education materials.

LottoGo gives you extensive information on each game when it counts: right before you make a purchase! Each game's page tells you how that lottery game works, how to play, and even your odds for each prize tier. There's also a brief history of each game, including past winners.

The only thing lacking is a glossary to help newbies with unfamiliar terms. Still, LottoGo's helpful coverage of each game makes it one of the better places to start if you're new to online lotteries.


Ease of Use

LottoGo returns fresher and easier to use than ever.

World Lottery Club had a clean and simple interface. LottoGo continues that tradition while adding some design touches that make the site easier on the eyes. The differences are often subtle, but LottoGo now looks sleeker and more refreshing.

The navigation remains as straightforward as ever, too, so even new members won't get lost. The navigation bar up top lets you jump to any of the site's key sections with one click. Likewise, you don't have to look far to register for an account and buy tickets.

LottoGo has a refreshing, intuitive interface

However, as with World Lottery club, LottoGo still keeps some crucial links at the bottom of its website. You'll need to scroll down to find the FAQs, LottoGo's Contact section, or even some useful articles on each lottery game's rules and odds.

Overall, though, LottoGo remains a breeze to use. Again, if you're new to online lotteries, this is a great site for starting out: intuitive, un-intimidating, and highly responsive on any browser.


Playing

LottoGo sticks to the industry standards when it comes to playing lottery.

If you've played online lotteries before, LottoGo's process will be familiar:

  1. Log in to your account.
  2. Choose from the available lottery games.
  3. Pick your numbers. You can do so manually or have the system choose them for you. (For three of the most popular games – Powerball, Euromillions and Mega Millions – you can also initiate a quick purchase via the navigation menu using the Lucky Picks option.)
  4. Choose how many draws you want to play
  5. Decide whether you want to subscribe to draw updates.
  6. Click on the confirmation button to proceed.
  7. Confirm your order and payment details.
  8. Click on the red “Pay Now” button once you're done.
  9. Wait to see if you win!

Winning

LottoGo credits all winnings to your account, whether you win $10 or $10M and more.

Unlike some lottery sites, LottoGo doesn't ask you to go anywhere to claim prizes in person. Instead, your winnings go straight to your player account, regardless of how much you've won.

If you've won a prize bigger than £50,000, though, you might have to wait a few days to see the money.  Smaller prizes can be dispensed quickly from LottoGo's funds, but larger sums need to be claimed from other sources. In LottoGo's case, that means they either have to claim the money from the concerned lottery operator, or they must file a claim with their insurance provider. Either option translates to a wait of up to 40 days for you.

Lucky enough to strike gold? If you win more than £10 million, LottoGo gives you an initial £10 million as the first payment. Afterwards, you'll receive the rest of your winnings in 19 equal payments made each year. These payments will be placed in your account within 7 days of the first payment's anniversary.

As for LottoGo's scratch cards and virtual games, the threshold for immediate crediting is £10,000. If you win more than that, any amounts beyond £10,000 will be paid in monthly installments.

Payment/Withdrawal Options 1.0

LottoGo gets low marks for its incredibly limited range of payment methods.

Unfortunately, LottoGo only takes deposits through these payment methods: credit or debit card (Visa or MasterCard), Skrill, NETeller, international money order, or certain types of UK checks.

Credit and debit cards are standard for most lottery sites, and a digital wallet like Skrill is a nice alternative. However, it would've been nice to have more options, especially for players where most of these payment methods aren't a viable option.

It's worth noting that LottoGo also puts a cap of £10,000 on your monthly deposits. If you'd like to add more to your account per month, you have to contact them directly.

Customer Support 3.0

LottoGo seems determined to improve its customer service.

As World Lottery Club, this site had unimpressive customer support. You had to dig through unhelpful FAQs to find crucial information. Plus, you had limited customer support channels.

With LottoGo, some of that is still a problem --- for example, you still need to comb through the Player Terms and Conditions for a list of accepted deposit and withdrawal methods. However, LottoGo has also expanded its FAQ section to accommodate more questions, and some of the answers now offer useful details.

More importantly, LottoGo now offers live chat support. Their support team is available from 9AM - 5PM GMT, Monday to Friday. It's far from 24/7 support, but it's an improvement.

If you happen to need help outside office hours, you can still send LottoGo's team a support request through the chat pane or email. LottoGo claims to strive for a response time of 1 working day or less.

Since the rebranding, LottoGo has also been more responsive to user comments on Trustpilot and other third-party customer review sites. Many users get a reply within days of their comment --- a good sign.

Bottom Line for LottoGo Overall: 3.2

Good, a solid choice.
