When we first went into Lottogold.com, it looked familiar. Yup – another site powered by LottoTech. This online lottery provider out of Bulgaria offers 17 international lotteries, five syndicates and three combo deals. One of the interesting things is going to see what they have done different from other LottoTech sites. Let’s take a look.
Games at Lotto Gold
There are 17 international lotteries from US Powerball through to Oz Lotto. Players can choose to play one line/ticket upwards. You can also choose how many draws you play from a single draw up to “Never Miss a Draw”. Accounts can be cancelled with two business days’ notice but they will not refund on tickets that have already been purchased. They scan and send a copy of your ticket by email.
There are five syndicates for EuroMillions, EuroJackpot, US Powerball, US Mega Millions and Spanish El Gordo with 50 shares for 150 lines. There is a minimum purchase of 4 weeks. They also offer three combo packages. Super World Combo includes all five lotteries and has 250 lines with 150 shares. Super Europe Combo includes EuroMillions & EuroJackpot and has 100 lines with 150 shares. Super USA Combo includes US Powerball & Mega Millions and has 100 lines with 150 shares.
LottoGold.com and Discounts
Whether you purchase tickets for 1 draw up to “Never Miss a Draw”, the regular price is the same – €6.36. There are no discounts. Most of the other LottoTech sites have a series of scaled discounts, meaning the more draws you purchase the greater the discount. Go into discounts and promotions and there is a list, but no real details. They say the “Welcome Bonus” changes so no info on what they give you. There is get a “Free Line” but it says you have to play frequently and not how many plays. There are also “Multiple Discounts”, “Coupons”, “Vouchers” and “Refer a Friend”. But, there is no information on what you actually can get.
Other Bells & Whistles
We did have a chuckle on their list of “Lotto Strategies”. Top of the list is “No Ticket – No Win”. Duh! Then there is their “Check and Claim” which underlines the fact that if you play with them, they ensure you do not forget to claim your win or lose your ticket.
Winning at LottoGold
Getting your money, whether it be winnings or money you’ve put into your account is “subject to any deposit method restriction, transaction and withdrawal limits, and security reviews”. But – in particular regarding the withdrawal limits – they do not spell out the actual amount. LottoGold.com says they do not charge any commission, but there could be third party fees, commissions or other costs that are applied.
Who Are They?
LottoGold.com is owned by Dreams Pay Ltd., a company based in Sofia, Bulgaria. They have a telephone number, snail mail and email address and online form. There is also that pesky “Offline – Leave a Message” tab at the bottom of the screen that never changes. We asked a bunch of questions, but they just wanted contact details and didn’t bother actually dressing the actual question.
LottoGold.com’s Bottom Line
There are enough great sites that offer clear services. I have a problem with the lack of information on how much money I’d have to win before I actually could withdraw it. The team also rolled their eyes on the amount of writing with so little actual information.

Lotto Gold doesn’t get a thumbs up or down. But this isn’t where I’d be playing my numbers. I think I’ll stick to the recommended lottery provider options!
