But plenty of players who are new to playing the lotto on the internet are worried that it may not be safe or all together legal, so we're going to go over a few of the most common issues that new users could have when it comes to online lotto.
Ensure that the online lottery website is protected.
Search for the safety symbols! Sites that are well protected have a tiny icon of a padlock prominently shown across the website. If you can locate this icon you can relax knowing that your personal details are secure. You can locate these trust symbols at the bottom of any page that sells tickets. Take a look at our US Powerball, EuroMillions or Mega Millions pages to find the secured website symbols.
Examine the criteria of the online lottery site.
Always check the requirements section.
Any legitimate lottery concierge service will need certain information from you before you can play online. The first requirement is that all registered players be 18 years of age or older. Another important requirement is that you have a valid credit card to verify your age and to deposit funds into your account.
Does the online lottery ticket provider show contact details?
If a site is ambiguous about letting you know how you can contact them, there is most likely a reason and it is almost never a good one. Ensure there is sufficient contact info on a lottery website that you want to sign up with.
You should only play lotteries online from your personal computer.
Adding credit or debit card details over an open Wi-Fi connection or from an internet café may be a little more unsafe! Be sure that you use a trusted Wi-Fi connection and devices.
