How does lotto online betting at Lottoland work?

While you usually buy a lottery ticket for a certain lottery participating in the lottery via SA Lottoland is different. You will not buy an actual ticket and enter the official draw but bet on the outcome of a draw. So instead of playing the lottery you are betting on the lottery.

Similar to classic lottery playing you pick the numbers that you think will be drawn on your virtual play slip. But instead of buying a lottery ticket with your selected numbers, you place a bet on these numbers being drawn. If you guess correctly and your numbers are drawn, you will receive the same prize amount as the official lottery will pay-out. Lottoland is replicating the winning structure and you get the same amount as if you would have entered the lottery. Lotto Land pays your winnings directly into your online account.

What is Fixed Odds Betting?

With Lottoland you do not buy lottery tickets but place fixed odd bets on the outcome of a draw. Therefore, you are betting on the possibility that your selected numbers will be drawn and will get a fixed return.

Lottoland SA is licensed and regulated and hence 100% legal and safe. To get a license Lottoland needed to prove that renumeration of any amount will be guaranteed. Hence you will always receive your winnings. Furthermore, Lottoland has to prove that is has the right procedures in place for data protection, storage and processing. Lastly the company has to comply with responsible gambling and player safety regulations.
