Lottery Betting FAQ

What is Lottery Betting?

Lottery betting involves placing a bet on the outcome of a lottery game. You’ll select the game you wish to play, choose your numbers (or use Quick Pick), and pay your entry fee - just like buying in a store. However, you won’t actually receive a physical lottery ticket online. Instead, you are betting that the numbers you choose for the lottery will come up in the official draw. The prizes you win will be the same as if you played the lottery in a store.

After the draw is held, your entry will be automatically checked against the official results and if you match enough of the numbers drawn to win a prize on the game, the money will be paid into your LotteryWorld account; there is no need for you to make a claim or to visit any claim center. Indeed, you don't even need to check the results yourself - it is all done for you.

How do I bet on a lottery?

Betting on a lottery is easy. Start by going to the Lotteries page and picking the game you want to play.

You will need to register for a FREE account if you are a first-time user, or sign-in if you are a returning customer. You will also need to make sure you have sufficient funds in your account to pay for your bets.

Does LotteryWorld actually buy Lottery Tickets?

LotteryWorld does not buy official tickets for any of the lotteries available through our betting service. When you bet on lotteries through this site, you are placing a wager on the possible outcome of a specific draw for a particular lottery game.

Can I see my numbers before the draw takes place?


When you bet on a lottery and place your order, a copy of the order can be found in the Transactions section of your account. You’ll be able to check your chosen lottery numbers and find many other details about your order.

Where can I learn the rules of each lottery game?

You can find out the rules of the lottery you are betting on - including the prizes, odds of winning and FAQs relating to the individual games - by going to the Help section for each of the games. If you’re not sure where to start, head over to the Lotteries page to see a list of all the games featured on or take a look at the sitemap.

Are my lottery winnings guaranteed?

LotteryWorld takes our duty of care to YOU very seriously. As a licensed and regulated company, LotteryWorld are obligated to ensure that all our players who win prizes are paid promptly and in full. All prizes won by players on LotteryWorld will be paid as if you were redeeming a winning ticket in a shop.

To ensure this, the company maintains insurance with Lloyds of London, amongst others, to make sure all jackpot prizes on this site can be paid IN FULL, no matter how big they are.

What if I win the Jackpot?

We like your optimism :-)

If you win the jackpot, you will need to get in touch with the Customer Support team to arrange for receipt of your winnings, as the payment method for your prize will differ from the process for smaller wins. You can get in touch by phone, email or live chat.

Chances are, LotteryWorld will spot your win before you, and will already have been in touch!
