I have mixed feelings about World Lottery Club – it’s neither outstanding nor terrible.
World Lottery Club has a few things going for them, such as a very decent mix of lottery games, well executed education materials, and top-notch security. If you dig deeper, however, the cracks become evident.
For starters, they only accept a very limited number of payment methods, which could be a big deal breaker for some players. Their multi-draw discounts, meanwhile, only take effect when you enter 24 draws or more, and they aren’t even that significant. Finally, they only allow you to bet on lottery game outcomes. If you have no problem with that though, World Lottery club is, at the very least, worth a look or two.
Creating a free account at World Lottery Club is fast and easy.
The registration process is pretty standard as far as lottery sites go, asking only a few of your personal details. Players from all over the world can easily register, but if you're in a country where online lottery is banned (like in most parts of the US), then you won't be able to create an account at all. Not surprising--most, if not all, lottery sites work the same way. Overall, World Lottery Club doesn't reinvent the wheel when it comes to registration, which is a good thing.
World Lottery Club’s single play games offer good variety – which I definitely liked.
Let’s get this out of the way: the 17 games they offer will never be able to compete with, say, the sheer vastness of theLotter’s collection, but that doesn’t necessarily make what’s no tap here bad. On the contrary, World Lottery Club manages to assemble a very decent assortment of games. You’ve got popular games like US Powerball and Mega Millions alongside lesser known games like Finnish Lotto or Swedish Lotto. Take a look at all the available games below:
If group play is more your speed, you’ll be glad to know that their syndicate collection is pretty decent as well.
You can find nearly all the games they offer in single play here in syndicates, with the exception of Australia Monday & Wednesday Lotto. They do have something much better: the European Club syndicate. This is basically a syndicate bundle that includes two 55-entry shares to Euromillions (for two separate draws) and one 45-entry share to Eurojackpot for a total of 155 entries. At only £9.00, this is a pretty good deal if you like playing in syndicates.
If you want something a bit more interactive, World Lottery Club’s scratch cards and slots should fit the bill.
Scratch cards are pretty easy: if you’ve played scratch cards before, playing their virtual counterparts is no different. Okay, you don’t actually “scratch” the cards, but the mechanics are still the same. You click on each cell to reveal the images underneath, and if you get the same images a set number of times, you win! It’s that easy.
A sample of their virtual scratch cards.
World Lottery Club offers 26 scratch cards all with various themes. You can choose how many games you want to play, and you can even play a free demo of each game if you want to see how they work. Prizes, meanwhile, vary depending on which game you chose; the lowest prize cap is £250, while the highest you can win is £125,000.
World Lottery Club offers various virtual slots.
If video slots are your thing, World Lottery Club offers 29 games to choose from. They don’t offer much information about each one though, and you can’t play a free demo of each (which I didn’t like). If you want to see how they play, you would have to pony up some cash. It’s a very small gripe though – I really do appreciate the addition of these games as it offers players more options.
Yes – World Lottery Club offers a safe and secure website.
They utilize SSL encryption technology to secure any transactions that go in and out of their website, for starters. They are also licensed and regulated by two separate gambling commissions, the UK Gambling Commission and the Isle of Man Gambling Supervision Commission, and are also licensed by the Irish National Excise Licence Office. Simply put, these ensure that World Lottery Club abides by strict gaming standards and are not some shady outfit.
World Lottery Club impresses with their great education materials.
While they don’t feature an in-depth glossary, they do a really solid job of explaining how each lottery game works. If, say, you wanted to learn more about Mega Millions, World Lottery Club’s education materials allow you to understand how it works, what the jackpot structure looks like, and more. This is a thumbs up from me!
Their website is one of the simplest lottery sites around.
I really liked how World Lottery Club’s website is quite minimalistic and devoid of clutter. Navigating is easy because of how clean their site is. The main menu up top provides links to the different game pages, while the front page gives you a brief overview of their offerings. Registering an account, like I mentioned earlier, is a breeze, and purchasing tickets is equally so.
World Lottery Club's website is quite simple.
One thing I didn’t like was how they placed some important links, like FAQs and Contact Us, at the very bottom of the website. Links like that should be on the main menu where it’s easy to see. It’s a minor gripe though – I really liked World Lottery Club’s ease-of-use.
World Lottery Club works just like any other lottery site – playing is no exception.
Kudos to World Lottery Club for making prize claiming a breeze.
They deposit all winnings – whether small or large – to player accounts, so you don’t have to worry about traveling far to get your money. There’s some differences depending on how much you win though.
For winnings £50,000 or less, the winnings will be credited to your account as soon as possible. These will be coming from their own funds. Meanwhile, for winnings that go beyond £50,000, they will either make a claim with their insurance provider or get the winnings from the relevant lottery provider. Larger wins could take up to 40 days before being credited to you.
Meanwhile, if you win more than £10 million, you can get the first £10 million in one payment, while the remainder of your winnings will be spread out over 19 equal, annual payments. These annual payments will be credited to you on or within 7 days of your first payment’s anniversary.
World Lottery Club’s banking methods are quite disappointing compared to other lottery sites.
I didn’t like how they only accept 4 payment methods: Visa, MasterCard, Skrill and NETeller. Sure, you could argue that a lot of people already use Visa or MasterCard credit cards – and you’re right. But, what about those who don’t have any of these options in their country? What if they use another credit card? The only options for them would be to apply for any one of these payment methods, or go to another lottery site that accepts a wide array of payment methods. Guess which option is easier?
I was not impressed with World Lottery Club’s support options at all.
Their FAQs, for starters, are just okay – but, they don’t really get too in-depth with the information they provide. For instance, they don’t provide details regarding deposit and withdrawal options. You would have to do your own digging to find what payment methods they accept.
More than the lacking FAQs, the only way to contact their support team is via email. They also provide their mailing address, but, let’s be honest, that’s really not a viable option for addressing pressing concerns (especially if you live in another country).
