Absolutely. Your personal and payment details are encrypted under Geotrust 128 SSL bit security and accessible with a username and password only. All traffic between your web browser and our site is completely secure and you should not hesitate to make deposits or withdrawals at theLotter. You can view the Secure Sockets Layer lock symbol in the address bar at the top of the browser page.

Why does theLotter charge a service fee?

We are essentially a ticket messenger service. We purchase official lottery tickets on behalf of our customers according to the numbers and lines they select. Our revenue stems solely from the sale of these tickets. We do not resell existing tickets or sell them at a higher cost. The only amount added to a ticket's price is our service fee.

Once you have purchased a ticket, you incur no further costs or charges. When you win a prize with a ticket purchased through theLotter, you will receive the full win amount without having to pay any further commission.

Is theLotter transparent?

Full information about how our service operates is posted on our website. All elements of the ticket purchasing process are explained and everything we do on your behalf is clearly displayed in your account, including transactions and scanned copies of your tickets. We strive to make every aspect of our operation as transparent as possible.

Can I see my tickets?

Yes! After having purchased a lottery ticket on our site, you can see a scanned copy in the 'My Account' section, proving that the actual ticket was indeed purchased on your behalf. The copy displays the number selection and relevant draw information, as well as a serial code unique to each ticket. We scan tickets as quickly as possible, although this process might take some time. We are committed to having the scanned tickets available in your account before the draw takes place. In some lotteries, however, we provide a reasonable facsimile of the tickets for operational reasons. While we do not send tickets by email, these items (legal agreement, proof of purchase, and the image of the actual ticket) firmly establish that the ticket legally belongs to you.

When you play the lottery online at theLotter, you give yourself a chance to win the biggest jackpot prizes in the world. To win the lottery, you need to play the game!

If I’m not satisfied, can I get my money back?

Absolutely. If, for whatever reason, you are not completely satisfied with our service, we will refund your first purchase in full, guaranteed.

If I win, will I get my money?

Of course. Lottery results are published for all to see and we are contractually committed to credit you with your winnings as quickly as possible. Meet some of our biggest winners – their stories prove that our ticket purchasing service is credible. Please note that winnings are paid out by the official lottery operators and it might take some time before big wins are credited to players' accounts. It is also important to understand that any winnings to which you are entitled may be taxed at source based on local laws. The money you receive is after taxes have been deducted.

What's to stop theLotter from taking my winnings?
