Lotto Fun in South Africa
Playing South African lotteries is simply a click away says LottoFun. Okay, they, actually say ‘winning millions’ is simply a click away. Lottofun.co.za is an online and SMS lottery provider for South African lotteries and sports betting. Though they do offer the online service, much of their site is orientated towards using SMS to buy your lottery tickets. I did like their little Blinky character on their home page – he’s cute!
Games at LottoFun
LottoFun offers three lottery games – Lotto, Lotto Plus and Powerball. All are rollover lotteries and seem to climb up to some pretty big numbers though keep in mind they are in Rand (about 10 Rand to the USD). These aren’t mega lotteries like US Powerball or Mega Millions but winning is winning! Lottofun.co.za also offers betting on football games. They add a 15% flat service charge for all plays and there are banking fees to transfer winnings to your account (no idea how much).

Who Is Lotto Fun?
It appears they are owned and operated by Ligonda Technology & Telecoms in South Africa, which has been around since 2006. They are a pretty big company that specializes in eCommerce and mobile solutions. It’s a shame they don’t put their direct contact details on the Lotto Fun’s site.
The Bottom Line
Lotto Fun is an online and mobile phone lottery service provider for South Africans in South Africa. Oh – and they do offer football betting. Overall, the site seems to be more tailored for SMS lottery players than online, but then again, maybe that is indicative of the fact more people have mobile phones than computers – in South Africa.

Only for South Africans
These guys do not get a thumbs up or thumbs down. The site looks pretty clean, but it’s only for South African lotteries and I like to play more international lotteries. Well, that and the fact is I’m not South African and can’t play here!
