One of the things that we’ve seen over and over again is the problems that occur when a sport betting site decides to jump on the band wagon of lotteries. I was looking into the online lottery site 1xBET.com and got totally lost. The first thing that hit me was the amount they showed as the jackpot. Really strange considering we all know that mega lotteries like US Powerball and EuroMillions have minimum start amounts. Then again this is a betting site, hence maybe what they payout isn’t quite the same as the published amount. Let’s go see.
Games at 1xBET.com
1xBET.com offers players the opportunity to bet on 33 international lotteries. In some cases, you are playing against the real full ticket line drawn on the official sites they represent. In some cases, you have the opportunity to choose say 5 numbers (when a lottery actually draws 6). Only some of the lotteries seem to include the bonus ball – like US Powerball – though there is something in their terms and conditions that says bonus balls are not played. More on the T&C shortly.
Getting Your Winnings
Winnings are credited direct to your account after any lottery draw and paid to you upon request the same way you put money in. There is no information on whether they take a commission or any fees that are charged to get your winnings. Well, they do say that there are no charges if you’re using bitcoins. In their betting information, there is a heap of information on selling your bet or a part of it back plus insurance. But we’re not sure if this applies to lotteries or only on their other betting available.
1xBET.com and the Terms and Conditions
Don’t expect any further clarity at 1xbet.com in their terms and conditions. There are two sections there that deal with lotteries and the information is very limited. They do say that you own the ticket line that you picked and you get your winnings. But the T&C refers to “symbols” versus numbers and put more space into what happens if your ticket is defective versus what happens when you play here.
Talking to 1xBET.com
Asking questions direct to this online lottery betting site, their live chat is open 24/7. The only problem is, no one seems to understand how the lottery side of this site works. I tried several times to get an answer regarding the difference between what is the published amount of an official lottery jackpot versus the amount that they publish and no one could give me straight answer. Their final line was “that’s all the information we have available”. Sorry folks, not good enough for me.
Who Are They?
There is a UK phone number though it’s pretty obvious that’s not where their customer service is located. 1xBET.com is owned by Exinvest Limited, a company based in Cyprus. They offer the phone number, an email address and live chat for asking questions. Just don’t expect an answer.
The Bottom Line at 1xBET.com
For lotteries, make sure you stay with the site link of 1xBET.com/en/lotto otherwise you’ll be weeding your way through a whole heap of sports betting. That’s the problem here. The site focuses on betting on all kinds of different sporting events and it looks like they added lotteries as an afterthought.

This site gets a thumb’s down. It’s great that they have 24/7 live chat customer service available but it would be good if someone actually understood how their betting on their lotteries worked. If anyone is playing here, please give us feedback.
