LottoGo Exposed — Beware the Subscription Button
Want to bet on lotteries? Check out LottoGo.com. LottoGo is a former WorldLotteryClub.com and has a bunch of lotteries, games, and scratches. Keep in mind this is about betting and not purchasing lottery tickets. The payout is the same as if you had a ticket in any of the official draws including sharing if there is more than one winner. But if you’re a resident of the United States, don’t look to play here. Anyone else, all bets are on!

Scratch Games at LottoGo
LottoGo.com offers a bunch of scratch games including EuroMillions, Gold Hunter, 33 Chances, Horseshoe, and Raid the Piggy Bank – to mention a few. Players can jump in on one game, 10 games, or 20 games. There is a heap to choose from.
And Other Stuff at LottoGo.com
In addition to betting on lotteries and scratchies, LottoGo has a wide range of other casino games including Keno, Blackjack, Roulette, and Poker. There is a demo option on each of the games, but you first have to register to be able to play.
How to Claim Your Winnings
Winnings under £50,000 are paid directly to your LottoGo account. Anything over £50,000 can take up to 40 days while LottoGo.com sorts payments out with their insurer. There is no information on who the insurance company is. Click on “withdraw” and your winnings should be cleared between 3 to 5 working days. There is a minimum withdrawal of £10. However, you put the funds originally in is the way you get them back.
How to Claim a Mega Jackpot?
Though in general, LottoGo says that all winnings are paid in a lump sum less any taxes that would be applicable (like in the case of the US lotteries), winnings over £10 million are not paid out all at once. The first £10 million is paid “as soon as possible” after the draw with the rest of the money paid over 19 yearly payments paid within 7 days of the date of the first payment.
Who Can Play at LottoGo.com?
The only big restriction on playing at LottoGo.com is Location- no one who is a resident of the United States can play – or you are somewhere where it is illegal to play. Okay – you do have to be 18 years or older and legally able to enter a contract. Lottogo.com is available in six languages – English, Chinese (Zhongguo), German, Finish, Polish and Swedish.
Who Owns LottoGo.com?
This site is operated by a company out of the Isle of Man, with a snail mail and email address. There is also an online form. Their published business hours are only Monday to Friday from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. GMT. There are no phone numbers to contact them. LottoGo is registered with the Jersey Gambling Commission and UK Gambling Commission.
LottoGo.com & Complaints
Most of the comments by players are about the use of the subscription button. It seems a bunch of people didn’t realize it was ticked and ended up with additional charges.

Is LottoGo Legit?
One would have thought with betting; the company would be able to set aside the tax issues that affect lotteries, especially because they don’t have to pay the taxes. It’s also not appealing to think that one may have won the mega jackpot but won’t get all the money right away.
This site looks fairly straightforward though beware of the “subscription” button and what you agree to pay.
Still no reply from LottoGo and they have flagged another negative review. This is a struggling online casino. There are negative reviews all over the internet apart from TrustPilot.
If a casino has measures in place to profit from Gambling Harm and that can encourage underage Gambling – they are likely to profit by any means and could well refuse to pay big winnings. The UKGC has already highlighted several failings and the casino is still adapting unethical measures. It is my opinion the reviews on TrustPilot are fake or do not reflect balanced experiences of this operator. I will await for LottoGo to flag this review again – hopefully the 25,000 people who have read my reviews stay clear of this operator
Disgusted took money out of my account and didn’t put my withdrawal in blaming my bank
My very limited experience with Lottogo- To get the promotional set for life tickets at the advertised price it signed me up to subscription, which I immediately cancelled. But I did win a little, setting me ahead by about AUD$30. I am still waiting for the money to go back into my card. It all seems legit at this point, and I am happy that I won so quickly. I just wish it was faster to withdrawal winnings. I think Lottogo could be improved by not being so assuming and greedy from the outset. Make it an option to subscribe after we have identified with the site. And of course by making the winnings withdrawals go back faster into your chosen account.
Bought around $24 worth today & noticed I’ve been added to subscription with $252.00 to be debited from my account TOMORROW!
Sent 4 e-mails cancelling the ‘subscription’ – no response yet, and both phone numbers listed on the site are DISCONNECTED.
If the money is debited tomorrow I’ll contact the bank to put the payment in dispute.
Just received e-mail to say ‘Subscription cancelled’. Hoping that’s right.
Q for LottoGo:
Why have a response box on-site that’s ‘not monitored’?
Why have 2 contact phone numbers listed that are ‘Disconnected’?
Why are punters so easily able to inadvertently ‘subscribe’?
And why isn’t it simpler to unsubscribe?
They subscribed me for tickets I did not subscribe to or ask for. I unsubscribed the only choice I had was to say I had subscribed by mistake! This is a fraudulent site!
Won £150 and instead of crediting my bank they debited my account of £150 but tried to blame the bank. It’s a card transaction that I did not authorise. Now having to go through bank to get my money back but not received 2 withdrawals of £150 & £140. Disgusting site and service.
