Step 2. Choose the number of lines and pick your lucky numbers

Log in and select a lottery from a sidebar of your lottery agent. You will find a lot of lotteries on the site, so that the overchoice can make you dizzy. Make a decision based on the Jackpot amounts, the number of prize divisions and the complexity of game rules. Pay attention to the smart rating: the best of the best lotteries have the better score (7, 8, 9, 10 points). Here are some tips to buy lottery tickets: Powerball, Oz Lotto, SuperEnalotto, etc.

  • Check the number of prize divisions. It’s really nice to win the first prize, but it’s much better when you’re charged $ 7.000 for, let’s say, 4 matched balls or a couple of massive second-tier prizes extra. Pick 3 numbers; get $ 20 dollars, etc. EuroMillions and EuroJackpot say: “Don’t forget about us if you’re wise enough!”
  • Look for inexpensive lotteries if you want to save money. The amount of money you spend on lottery tickets must be reasonable.

Powerball Australia ~$1.94 per line
Bonoloto ~$2.08 per line
SuperLotto Plus ~ $2.99 per line

  • Play the easiest lotteries with a nice opportunity to make a scoop, such as Oz Lotto: just match 6 numbers out of 45.
  • Powerball, MEGA Millions and SuperEnalotto offer the most massive Jackpots in the world. These lotteries are tough nuts for big winners who know how to play big.
  • Don’t miss monthly draws of Loteria Nacional. This is the most extraordinary game in the world. Lottery fans usually long for its raffles like shopaholics long for Black Friday to spend their money on desired goods!

Once you have picked the lottery draw press on its name. It will take you to the page where you can pick your lucky numbers.

Step 3. Fill in a lottery ticket

It’s time you filled out a lottery ticket. First, decide on the number of lines in it.

Then, mark your lucky numbers in the ticket. You can pick the combination of numbers in two ways: you can do it by yourself or use the “Easy-Pick” option in order the system picks numbers for you automatically. Short tips next to the ticket form will help you fill out the ticket correctly. If you take a false step, the site will notify you about it. The interface is user-friendly, so that it’s not easy to get confused!

Tip: Feel free to benefit from the "Multiplier" option where can be applicable, which will make any of your prizes (except for the Jackpot) many times bigger.

There are some more options to play:

  • The “Multiple Draw” option. If you don’t want to miss any single draw, select this smart option. The system will withdraw money for a few subsequent draws at once. After that, you will be automatically assigned to 4, 10 or 25 upcoming draws.
  • The “Subscription” option. This option is very similar to the previous one. The only difference is that the funds will be withdrawn from your card or an e-wallet account before each draw. Using this option, you will be subscribed to 10, 25, 52 or even 104 subsequent draws.
  • The dynamic ticket form. Based on the popular winning strategy, it makes it possible to pick the increased portion of numbers in a single entry. This option is able to significantly increase your winning odds.

After you’re through with lines, numbers and options you can finish by pressing the “Confirm”.

Step 4. Confirm the order

After you confirm your order, you will see a good bunch of payment options that are available for your country. They are debit/credit cards, e-wallets and many more. Pick the payment option that suits you and follow a short guide:

  • Visa
  • MasterCard
  • Unionpay
  • JCB
  • Skrill
  • Sofort
  • Trustly
  • POLi
  • GiroPay

  • iDeal
  • Nordea
