Ticket Prices

Attention bargain hunters and penny pinchers! Lotto Agent offers a better deal than WinTrillions when it comes to pricing. Yes, I did the math but feel free to double-check my work! Here’s a look at some of the comparisons:                                                                       

Lottery Game WinTrillions Lotto Agent
Australia OzLotto $15 for 4 consecutive draws for 1 month $12.55 – 5-line min., single entry w/ 10% discount
Europe Eurojackpot $37 for 6 consecutive draws for 1 month $29.99 – 5-line min., single entry w/ 7% discount
Europe – EuroMillions $37 for 4 consecutive draws for 2 weeks $31.72 – 5-line min., single entry w/ 7% discount
Italy – SuperEnalotto $39.90 for 6 consecutive draws for 2 weeks $15.03 – 5-line min., single entry w/ 7% discount
Spain – El Gordo $37 for 6 consecutive draws for 1 month $29.39 – 6-line min., single entry w/ 8% discount
Spain – La Primitiva $27 for 4 consecutive draws for 1 month Sat. $23.59 – 8-line min., single entry w/ 12% discount
US – MEGA Millions $10 for 2 consecutive draws for 1 week $24.07 – 5-line min., single entry w/ 9% discount
US – Powerball $39.90 for 4 consecutive draws for 2 weeks $24.07 – 5-line min., single entry w/ 9% discount

If you play the same numbers week after week, month after month, WinTrillions might be for you. Once you choose your numbers or even click on Quick Pick, these numbers will be played on consecutive draws for the predetermined amount of time. However, the inability to play a single draw or entry may be a deterrent for some players.

Lotto Agent offers its US Powerball players an extra option– Powerplay. For $1.99 per line, you have a chance to multiply your prize (except the jackpot) up to 10 times!

Not to be outdone by Lotto Agent’s aggressive discounting, WinTrillions does offer discounts but they are “hidden” under Promotions in the blue banner on their home page.

Bonuses and Perks

WinTrillions is the obvious winner in this category. With 4 promotions, they scored big time with these “extras”  – Daily Deals, Gift Vouchers, Refer a Friend and VIP Loyalty Program.

WinTrillions’ VIP points can be redeemed for discounts and free play.

A frequent perk at casinos worldwide are rewards cards – the more you play, the more free play, food and beverage you earn. With WinTrillions’ Membership program, players pay $10/month for the Gold card which is automatically credited back to your account. And for $50/month, the Diamond card additionally adds on automatic free play in the Diamond Syndicate combining California SuperLotto, USA Hot Lotto and Canada’s Lotto 6/49 for 28 monthly draws. Even if they discount $5 off the $50 monthly charge, this is still quite a bit to spend on a membership. Just saying.

Lotto Agent does offer one bonus – “Invite-a-Friend Special.”  Pretty straight-forward but make sure you ask your friends if this is okay with them!

Ease of Use

Both WinTrillions and Lotto Agent did their homework and succeeded in providing user-friendly websites. Easy navigation, uncluttered pages and understandable writing leads to the desired end result – buying tickets!

But let’s get down to brass tacks. You both got me to the page where I choose my numbers but this is where WinTrillions and Lotto Agent part ways.

WinTrillions guides the user through the purchase process by placing the instructions on the right side with an easy 1-2-3 steps in bright red. They recommend Quick Pick but If you choose to pick your own numbers, the sidebar opens up to allow this. Then voila – click to pay and play!

WinTrillions’ 3 easy steps to play

Though Lotto Agent does a decent job of explaining ticket purchases, it needs some tweaking. The light blue font fades into the white background and you can barely see the 4 additional line options to the right.

And as you scroll down to “Confirm” your purchase, you can barely see the PowerPlay option for Powerball and the option to use your promo code.

Now to the “aha moment” I mentioned earlier in this article. It was a Saturday afternoon and I was switching back and forth between WinTrillions and Lotto Agent. With 4 hours left to go for the US Powerball drawing of $215 million, WinTrillions had Powerball as a header with a countdown clock on their home page. But Lotto Agent instead chose to highlight EuroJackpot which was closing in 5 days! Come on! The drawing was in a few hours and we all should have been alerted to buy a Powerball ticket!

Here are the screenshots of both, taken within seconds of each other:

I think it’s back to the drawing board for Lotto Agent – minor adjustments are needed, not a major overhaul.

Lotto Agent currently offers downloads for Android only, which leaves iPhone devotees out of luck. Like WinTrillions, however, they also offer a platform-agnostic mobile-optimized website that works perfectly on most, if not all, modern mobile browsers.

Online security is just as important as locking your car door. More so, in my opinion. Both WinTrillions and Lotto Agent recognize this as a priority for online lottery players and come through with flying colors!

The Ultimate Winner: Lotto Agent

Determining a winner in this battle – WinTrillions vs Lotto Agent – was not an easy task. In 3 sections, they were on equal footing – number of games offered, mobile apps and customer service. But Lotto Agent nudged WinTrillions out of the lead in the areas of banking, claiming prizes and security.

Though Lotto Agent’s overall pricing was better, WinTrillions’ promotional offers did lower some ticket prices and their syndicate and raffles did increase the value of their website. But in the end, the bottom line is still money! It doesn’t make sense to pay more for the same product. Ever. And Lotto Agent clearly demonstrates this in their aggressive pricing.

One valuable consideration in overall web design is graphics and color. Lotto Agent’s website is lacking in vibrancy and somebody there really likes the muted color palette of gray, pale blue and orange. Lotteries generate excitement and a buying frenzy takes place whenever the jackpots of Powerball or EuroMillions pass the $100 million mark. But nobody ever takes into consideration the design of a 7-eleven or gas station when buying a ticket.

Online lottery is a different animal, offering players a more convenient option.  The field is getting crowded and competition for ticket sales is fierce. So, if Lotto Agent does some tweaking in the design department and bumps up their bonus offers, they can be a clear winner in every lottery battle!
