What you need to consider before choosing an online lottery

No doubt, the lottery has become one of the favorite games that you can engage at any time. The good part is that you can find various lottery games, such as regional, national, and international lotto. Keep in mind that playing these types of games (lotto) requires you to choose certain numbers to have a chance of winning a jackpot. This is an appealing game that you should never miss the opportunity the participate in.

 That said, you can find tons of different places where you can buy lottery tickets online. Many of them have exciting lotteries from across the globe. This post explains what you need to consider before choosing an online lottery.

 

Online lottery providers

Many lotteries can offer massive jackpots to give you a chance to win any of them. Online lottery agents usually purchase these lottery tickets on your behalf for a fee. Ideally, you can pick lotteries and purchase lottery tickets through their secure sites. They even send you a copy of proof of purchase and ownership while others may only send scans of the receipts.

Here is the deal: if you win, they usually notify you. Most agents can either deposit your winnings into your account or they may offer assistance to claim the prize yourself. 

 Regardless of whether you are purchasing online tickets from the best online lottery  operator or online agent, you may need to pay a little extra for the online tickets. This is because they may charge a service fee for the convenience. Also, some lottery agents may not ask for a service fee for their services, but they may take a commission from the winnings. In such cases, an agent can charge a commission of anywhere between 3% and 10%. 

 The good thing is that many lottery websites don’t restrict the number of lottery tickets you can buy from them for a draw. So you just need to have enough money to pay for any number of tickets.

 

Legitimate online lottery sites

It can be tricky to determine if the online lottery site is authentic or not. However, if you come across an online lottery website that promotes transparency and security, it’s a good sign that it’s genuine. 

That said, you can easily find online scams and legitimate lottery websites, especially if you know what you’re looking for. Below are some factors that can help you determine the online lottery site is safe:  

 Security and trust logos. When you see Norton, McAfee Secure, and many others, the online lottery site is likely safe to use. It’s worth noting that you can also find some security and trust logos that originate from lesser-known companies. So don’t think the worst when you don’t see these security and trust logos.

  • SSL encryption. Although logos are great, anyone can make fake ones. So you need to click on them for verification. Another excellent indication of safety is perhaps SSL encryption. This one can be hard for scammers to replicate or crack. With SSL encryption, all the sensitive data you provide to the site is secured. It means your email, credit card information, and others are secure.
  • License and regulations. A genuine online lottery website should be licensed and regulated by a reputable gaming authority. This can assure you that the lottery provider is adhering to local and international regulations.
  • Open communication lines. Authentic lottery websites usually have proper support channels you can use. Some of them provide email addresses, online forms, live chat, and even live phone support. Even better, others are active on various social media platforms like Twitter and Facebook.
  • Transparency. Reliable lottery websites reveal their policies and are open about their fees they charge you. You can find such information under their Terms of Use which is usually at the bottom of the website’s landing page.       

 

What you need to consider before buying online lottery tickets

Now that you have decided to buy online lottery tickets, it’s a good idea to take a look at how you want to play. Here are a few factors to help you make the right decision:

 

Number draw or instant win

Number draw or instant win is one of the important things you need to consider when searching the ideal lottery to play. You should figure out if you want to play where you may get the result instantly. On the other hand, you can play a game where you need to wait for a couple of draws. 

The good news with the instant win is that you can find out if you are successful with a game at the moment. For example, you can choose to play a scratch card lottery, which provides higher chances of winning rather than the conventional lottery. 

The trick is to have a lot of patience when you choose the number draw lotto. This is because it occurs every week or bi-weekly, and you can score good deals and win lucrative prizes.

 

The jackpot’s size

The size of the jackpot is an essential factor when playing the lottery as they may vary in the amount of cash. Every online lottery provider reveals their jackpots to make sure that you can see what is on offer.

 But you need to consider that the size of the jackpot usually depends on the rollovers. So some of the online lotteries can rise significantly to reach massive amounts. They can also climb even higher depending on ticket sales.

 

Odds of winning

Unfortunately, winning the jackpot is not as simple as you may think. You need to consider the odds of hitting a jackpot, meaning you should have the right tactics and strategy in place. The best way to start is to try smaller lotto games because they have better odds and more prize tiers.

Many lotto games are pretty similar. You will see that many people may choose a key line of numbers with two bonus balls to choose from. These combinations can give you the proper lottery winning numbers that you need to win a jackpot.

HSBC UK increases gambling block feature to 3 days
Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

With lockdown causing an increase in gambling, HSBC UK and first direct have today announced an increased cooling off period to their gambling block feature, from 24 hours to 72 hours.

The self-restriction tool, which prevents customers from being able to make gambling payments on their accounts after it’s switched on, will automatically decline any gambling transactions for three days, to help people control their urge to gamble.

Recently published data from the UK Gambling Commission (UKGC) highlights that lockdown measures have had an impact on gambling behavior in the UK, with a month-on-month increase of 29% in gross gambling yield (GGY), and a 7% increase in active accounts.

Maxine Pritchard, Head of Financial Inclusion and Vulnerability at HSBC UK said: “This is a challenging time for many of our customers, with some not working and perhaps facing financial difficulty. By increasing the restriction to 72 hours, this will help give our customers time to pause when they are tempted to return to gambling.

“We are always looking for new ways to support our customers and make it easier for them to manage their finances. Customer feedback on our gambling control showed us there was more we could do to help and we’ve worked closely with them and with GamCare to design the solution.”

Available to HSBC UK and first direct customers with an active debit card, the option can be switched on via the ‘Manage Cards’ section on the HSBC UK mobile app (within the ‘Cards’ section of the fd mobile app), as well as via telephone banking or by going into a branch – giving customers added control over their spending.

Anna Hemmings, CEO of GamCare, says: “The ability to block gambling transactions through your bank card or app is an important tool for those struggling with their gambling, and is ideally used together with other practical tools such as self-exclusion, blocking software, and specialist support around the issue – as we have recently emphasised through our ‘TalkBanStop’ partnership and campaign.

“The University of Bristol Personal Finance Research Centre has also highlighted that ‘positive friction’ such as a cooling off period is important for the success of blocks, as this prevents them being turned off in the event of urges to gamble. GamCare is pleased to see HSBC UK and first direct take this positive step to support their customers.”

HSBC UK and first direct both have their own specialist support teams on hand to help vulnerable customers including those at risk of financial harm from gambling and can refer customers to a trusted external organisations where needed.
