LottoStar FAQs

What is LottoStar?

LottoStar is a leading South African-based, operated and targeted purveyor of international lottery, betting and fixed-odds games.

register with LottoStar now

It's licensed and regulated by the Mpumalanga Economic Regulator which means it's 100% legal and safe for you to join and use (provided you're 18 or older i.e. of legal gambling age in South Africa).

Being a fix-odds betting company means LottoStar gives you the opportunity to participate in huge global lotteries normally off limits to South Africans as they are located offshore in other countries.

How Does LottoStar Work?

Ok, here's how LottoStar games work. Unlike other online lottery ticket purveyors (like TheLotter) that charge you a premium to buy actual physical international lottery tickets on your behalf, LottoStar makes use of a 'fixed-odds' business model or system.

What exactly is a fixed-odds business model, you may well ask?

This is where LottoStar - a licensed South African bookmaker - accepts a 'bet' on your behalf ahead of one or more of its lottery draws, with all possible payouts pre-published for you to see.

"LottoStar lets you bet on world lotteries"

In other words, instead buying an actual lottery ticket with your personal or Quick Pick (QP) numbers, you instead 'bet' on the likelihood of those numbers being drawn with all of the prize tiers guaranteed.

While the 'mechanics' of LottoStar may differ slightly from regular lottery ticket sale sites, the payouts are guaranteed in both, not to mention enormous if you win the top prizes!

For instance, at LottoStar you can win anything from a few Rand to a few thousand Rand to a few million Rand to a few billion Rand. Yes you read right - BILLION RAND (due to the exchange rate)!

What are LottoStar Fixed-Odds Games?

LottoStar makes use of fixed-odds payouts so that you know up front exactly how much - to the cent - you'll win based on the number of drawn numbers your match.

Plus, fixed-odds payouts mean you never have to split the top prizes with any other winners. At LottoStar you always get paid out every cent as advertised - all yours, no sharing!
