Lotto Go: A Brand Reborn
Lotto Go is a lottery betting site that used to exist as World Lottery Club. In its previous avatar, it gained very limited success and hence decided to reappear in the business as Lotto Go. While they may have improved a lot of things from the past, a number of problems still persist in Lotto Go.
Lotto Go is operated by the Annexio Group. The company has obtained its license from Great Britain and is regulated by the UK Gambling Commission. It has also gained a license from the Isles of Man Gambling Supervision Commission. The company does not operate any lottery. Instead of that, it functions as a betting service provider.
Lottery Betting at Lotto Go
Lottery Betting is slightly different from purchasing a lottery ticket. When you purchase a lottery ticket, you officially become a player in the lottery. While upon betting through a service provider like Lotto Go, you place a bet upon what you think to be the possible winning number of a lottery draw. If the number you have chosen comes out to be the winner of the lottery, you win the bet. The winning bet is paid through an insurance company.
Lotto Go provides you a handpicked collection of lottery games all over the globe. The biggest benefit of this model is that you do not need to be familiar with the laws of the country organizing the lottery. All you need is to be eligible to place bets in your country of residence. On the downside, receiving a payment can come after some irritating hassle at this platform.
What To Bet On
Lotto Go Games Collection: Jackpots, Syndicate Games, Scratchcards, and Games
Lotto Go has divided its gaming catalog into 4 segments. These are Jackpots, Syndicate Games, Scratchcards, and Games! It’s kind of hard to explain why would they name an entire subsection as games.
Syndicates have become a common feature on all of the lottery agent-providing platforms. In a syndicate, you are a part of a big pool of players where the bets and prizes are shared as a group. While this increases the chance of being a winner, it also reduces the amount of prize that you can receive, as all the rewards are shared among members of the syndicate.
Lotto Go has rolled up the biggest lotteries available on its platform under the pseudonym of Jackpots. These are the collection of big prize lotteries. Lotto Go has 17 lotteries available, which are somewhat dwarfish when compared to its peers like theLotter that has over 50 lotteries!
Apart from them, Lotto Go also provides some scratch cards and slot machines. The downside of the scratchcard games is that they do not have a demo option. So you will have to spend at least one card to test a game. That’s a bit disappointing honestly.
Customer Support and Security
Lotto Go Customer Support and Security
When Lotto Go used to be World Lottery Club, they were criticized for their shady website that offered little to no help to the customers. In its 2nd innings as Lotto Go, the company seemed to have learned its lessons half-heartedly. They now provide a detailed FAQ section that should help in most of the queries. Beyond that, the customers need to approach the customer service.
The customer service is available 5 days a week, for 8 hours daily. This is still a far cry from 24*7 customer support that is being offered by their competitors. For support beyond active hours, players can leave the team an email.
One good thing about Lotto Go is that they have deployed the same level of security that is available to any other website. Their platforms offer industry-standard 256-bit encryption.
Promo Codes and Bonuses

For its new members, Lotto Go has tried to provide some exclusive offers. The company has started to provide promos and bonus codes, discounted bets, and bonus rewards. Players are often informed about any kind of new offer on the block through an email notification.
However, when compared to its peers, Lotto Go has a clear room for improvement. They also don’t seem to have any ongoing bonanza offers, as of now.
Payments and Withdrawals
Payments, Withdrawals Mechanism of Lotto Go
For a website that drew negative reviews from its users, Lotto Go in its new form has tried to improve things with payment and withdrawal. However, the changes would fail to satisfy a lottery veteran who would not appreciate the lack of options available to him or her.
The players have only been provided an option to make a payment or a withdrawal through Credit and Debit cards using Visa and Master Card gateways. Apart from this, players can also use Skrill. Beyond that nothing more is available to the players to make a payment.
The smaller winning amount is directly credited to the players’ accounts. The players can make a withdrawal easily. For bigger amounts the withdrawal rules are complicated. But to their credit, Lotto Go makes sure that all the winning amounts are transferred to the players. There are no hidden commissions but for a smaller withdrawal, the users are charged an additional processing fee.
Final Verdict on Lotto Go
Lotto Go (previously known as World Lottery Club) has tried to make a comeback in the industry by expanding the number of lottery options, better customer service, and even providing a fully operational mobile application for its users. The mobile application allows the users to access all the 17 lotteries and it is available for iOS as well as Android platforms.
But there are a couple of things that Lotto Go needs to improve to stay in competition as its peers are providing a much better service to the lottery players. With constant improvements and customer engagement, Lotto Go can utilize its potential that is clearly lying dormant at the moment. This would save the platform from suffering the same fate as its predecessor.
Completely revamped and rebranded this new lottery ticket agent has lot to promise but also quite a room for improvements. Definitely one to watch.
