  1. Lotto star is by far the best. I deposited R25 and I bet in the Gold Rush Millions Lottery. I won R2200 and it was deposited into my account by the next day, hassle free. I use it often because I know it’s 100% legit. Hopefully one day I could win the jackpot.

  2. Do not play trust, I never even had a fair chance, you will deposit every time and win nothing, you wanna make up for your losses it just grows bigger. Thieves in this company,

  3. I played these scratch cards games I’ve never seen anything cheat like this in my life. It’s a scam so I advise people not to play. When asked about winners they sent me a picture of an overseas man. I told them I want South African show me South African. They didn’t!!!

  4. I started playing lottostar a few years ago and just deposited R50 now and then, and in my first few weeks of playing I bet R10 on a hot payout on the game Asteroids, and I got lucky….boom…R12500….I could not believe my eyes… I contacted one of the agents in chat and he help me to explain how the payout works…very helpful and friendly assistance…. I had problems with my bank, so he suggested to do an e wallet through FNB, and a few days later I got my winnings … I was so happy….and this was before Christmas…so I had a lot of fun…shopping for presents…thanx Lottostar for being so trustful… I hope to win again soon…wish me luck.

    • This is real…I played one ball game with their R25 welcome bonus and I won R500 and withdraw it…i got my money

  5. Yes, Stay Far Far Away from any Roulette games at Lottostar it`s all rigged!
    No Matter what you do how pro you think you are they cheat the hell out of your bankroll. Go and have a look on youtube what they say about the “Lightning Roulette”
    fake accounts with fake winners for you to see how these fake people win thousands and full of cheating remote magnetic balls on the tables and the Computer version so called RNG Roulette play against you from your first couple of bets!
    You`ve been warned If You want to loose money ignore these warnings!
    Only buy a couple of Lotto Tickets nothing more!
    At least You Win some on that! Cheers.

  6. Lottostar is not a scam I’ve won up to R15000. I’ve never had issues small amounts get paid immediately. I play regularly.

    00
  7. I have won large sums of money R55000, R15000, R50 000, R20 000, R43 000, R11 000 on lottostar due to greed I ended up loosing the money again. Lottostar is real they pay on time and always they have a live chat if you need assistance. Win and leave don’t be greedy like myself

    00
  8. I guess I am just unlucky been playing for, I think, 2 years. Never won more than R40 but have spend a few thousand…. The idea of changing your life is nice but I suppose I have to wake up and stop with this website….

    00
  9. I started with 100 rand and walked away with 2800. I lost some because of wrong decisions. Play small and build up slowly. Don’t see it as a get rich quick scheme. Take it as a game that pays out real money.

    00
  10. My advice is to don’t play Lottostar. I’ve lost 300k on the platform and some were just fraud on my account someone played without me knowing and used my card and details to transfer money from my bank account.

    Now the team at Lottostar is blaming me for exposing my details ??? I don’t know how much stress these guys have caused me. They have measures in place to reverse should they suspect fraud.

    00
    • please let’s write real issues here. How can someone play on your behalf when your account has a password?

      Suppose that “someone” (who was playing without your authority) had won R5 million, how was that person going to request LottoStar to pay him/her when they don’t have your FICA details?

      00
  11. I have been with LottoStar for 4 years the most I have won is 3000 and I give up sometimes but I will keep on playing until I get that big break. It’s a legit website though. I guess I am just unlucky. Not everything is a shame guys. Let’s just push until it happens. Good luck to all LottoStar players

    00
  12. I have not received any bad outcome, though I been unlucky with the lotto, winning only R2500 but I did receive it via ewallet as soon as I claim, communication via email is effective and they do and will really pay you when you win, regardless of how much you win. They cannot just set up a fixed bets company knowing they won’t pay you.

    00
  13. Lotto star is actually legit bein playing lottostar for the past 3 years the highest I have won was 50 000

    00
    • I been close to win a higher amount with EuroMillions, I won R2500 on a Friday and by Monday I received it through ewallet after I sent proper FICA documentation on Sunday. LottoStar is cheap to bet on and their fixed odds are way much better than other betting sites as what you see it’s what you get.

      00
  14. Just Lost 8K due to them reviewing my winnings and cancelling it, simple be then played until account reviewed, guess what? Never happened and I lost all my money. I’ve blocked my account now. People please stay away from this evil, rather spend the money on your family or yourself.

    Stay safe all. Peace to all

    00
  15. I do not care if I win less, what you see is what you get with LottoStar. No false info, they can be trusted. If you’re unlucky you’re unlucky

    00
  16. I told customer service that I have a gambling problem and I want my account to be stopped. They did but after a few days I got more money they just easily opened my account again without even as much as asking if I’m sure I want to

    00
  17. They control the outcome. Guess what in there favor always. Watch out.

    00
  18. The most money to win is 50.00

    00
  19. I won R200 and then they told me the money was deposited into a wrong account I had given a wrong number but I never got my cell number wrong so there it’s gone to someone I don’t know hope that one could use it …

    00
  20. Not even seconds of entertainment, and isn’t that what it is all about. You may only get 15 % back on winning or nothing at all. Maybe less television/radio ads promoting this lottery, we as gamblers then may have a mere 50 % chance. Payouts, since they were in business, is actually shockingly low.

    00
  21. On all their Kino games they get results from different sources. I think the system checks the source with results that will give the least payout. After every few minutes the get results either from ZAMLOT, OPAP or BCLC. With this they take out the fairness from the games, setting you up for failure.

    00
  22. The games are all rigged. Seems like small winnings are only allowed…..now they advertising on television…..gosh

    00
  23. Been betting for a week now. Deposited around R80. Won R150, R50, R40 and those R3 from KINO15. Not easy to win but possible. Addictive and one needs to know when to stop

    00
  24. I’ve lost more than I’ve won (only when I played for R10 or more on 1 bet/pick, I sometimes wonder; I don’t think this site is for poor people)

    00
  25. I also think it’s a scam never win anything poor people that’s addicted and keep betting you should stop once a certain limit is reached data and money just goes on the live game

    00
  26. I have nothing bad to say, you win some and loos some, i placed a bet of R2 and won almost R100.

    00
  27. I’ve been betting on Lottor Star for a few months now with a few wins here and there. The most I’ve won was R25000 on an R1 game. Though the odds aren’t the same as if you were betting on the actual game but they do specify that you aren’t participating in the actual lotto but rather the outcome.

    Winning is difficult on Lotto Star but it is possible.

    00
  28. I taken screen shots of LottoStar where I given a complaint on one of their games, they have taken more money off my account then normally and that say it was me that used it, I now for a fact that I didn’t do so where their games is not responding, they don’t care to help at all if you want to lose your money this is the site for you.

    00
    • Who withdrew the money, are consultants stealing money from people’s accounts,

      This has to be regulated
      Zondo commission has to look into this, and the gambling commissioner

      00
    • That’s exactly what happened to me, I can’t even figure a way to unsubscribe. They failed to give me the R300 I won.

      00
    • Has anyone tried to find out who owns Lottostar. It seems impossible to find out who the directors are.
      Doubtful!

      00
  29. Their games are impossible to win

    00
  30. I think you’re in the business of making money nothing else, how come no one has ever won your jackpots, something is not right here, your jackpots are different from what those world jackpots are, your UK results are different to the real UK results, so one ask where do u get your results. You people are scamming the poor South African

    00
  31. Here is my advice, don’t do it. Do not play lottostar. Do not believe their adverts, it’s bull. The people that they give money to on the radio station are people who just registered and they will pay back the R5000 or more than they won. Take it from someone who has unfortunately tried this.

    00
  32. I have been playing on Lottostar since 2016, I have not won anything big really but these are my take always.

    1. Do not play on games that are no international, what I mean by that is, for example all the Aus games you can check the numbers on their official sites. Play those games.

    2. In South Africa the jackpots they are showing are Huge for the price and compared to our own, but you always need to check lotteries to see if there are winners. Like most of the lotteries with 90 numbers and a bonus ball, it’s almost impossible (African millions, mega millions etc)

    3. Choose lotteries with good odds. The problem with Lottostar is that, for example almost all the Australian games there are winners almost every week, but their divisions (what is required to win) are different, so for the Australia Mon,Wed,Sat you need 6 straight to hit the jackpot and those odds are 1 in 24mil or something, so now you like okay I will play this on lotto star then(I made this mistake), but on lotto star you are required to get all 8 to hit the jackpot and then your odds are about 1 in 6 billion, yes you read that right !

    So to end off, do not invest in Lottostar, you are much better off playing the South African lottery and rather sharing, but also being able to play plus1 and plus 2, which obviously increases odds. Lottostar is far fetched and honestly the odds are ridiculous, you can check the odds if you click a game and scroll all the way to the bottom.

    00
  33. Why does Lottostar omit some numbers in the SUPERSTAR list of numbers? If you run thru the numbers before entering your first 6 balls, all the superstar numbers are there. But after entering your 6 numbers at least one of the numbers disappear from the list.
    I am just concerned that if you do a Quickpick certain numbers could be completely omitted

    00
  34. After reading so many negative comments I’m skeptical…I need more convincing proof that Lottostar is legit… they even removed their Facebook page and only have a Twitter account with no traceable details.

    00
  35. They’re in the business of making money. To do that, more people need to lose than win. Logic. Your chances of winning very very slim. That’s the nature of gambling. Don’t be naive, if you lose it’s your own fault.

    00
  36. Thank you lottostar for making by Christmas special with my amazing jackpot and pay out! Thank you for the great support from your online agents.

    00
  37. Lottostar is a total scam. I have played for years and you will never win big. I have played for a bit of fun, but have realized it is controlled and I agree the numbers are generated under a controlled system. I think it is time to move on. Rather put your money in a shoe box under your bed. It might not gain interest, but at the end of the day you will still have it.

    00
  38. Beware of their Specials which they run from time to time. Do not be caught as I have been. They play with words to create a false impression. I have deposited R1 000 on the special of 26/11/2018 where I would receive 100% playcredits extra. R2 000 was taken out of my account and on the 3/12/2018 my play credits expired. A bunch of crooks be aware

    00
  39. My concern is if they see a majority of people winning on a certain game they do away with it. For example kino 9 and lucky llayma those 2 games were done away with because they want people to keep losing.

    00
  40. Yes it is true I lost a lot of money you never win, crooks

    00
  41. Scam!!! You don’t win, you play and play and you don’t win more than you put in. Warning!

    00
  42. It’s a scam. Their jackpots aren’t even the same as the actual jackpots and they don’t say how they can pay you out. It’s all rubbish. Their UK lottery game isn’t even like the actual UK lottery, it just made up completely. How can you trust that?

    00
  43. Same never win. I put in R500, then I won back R430, tried again and again. Never win above the amount u put in. Scam

    00
  44. My opinion and what I think – winnings are allowed to a certain degree. Why I think its rigged to a degree = Example: 10 million people play. Their numbers are then sorted and put into various pockets. Those numbers are scanned through the computer. When the draw needs to take place numbers that were not really chosen are selected as the winning numbers…BUT allowing few winners paying out really small amounts. Nonetheless, with my thinking – I still play, am not a sore looser, I can say I have won small amounts, but when last was there a jackpot winner.

    00
    • people must understand this is gambling u win some and lose some. if I may ask how many people have won SA Powerball only a few . I have been playing since 2011 I won nothing. is it a scam? NO

      00
    • They steal. End of story.

      00
  45. U put in R50, u win R40. Know u have to walk away and take your R40 back because u won R40. U never win over the amount u put in.

    00
  46. Well, you win, you lose. That’s the game. I won small amount without any problems. This is for sure better than our SA Lottery. And if you love KFM, play then LOTTOSTAR with pride. Thanks.

    00
  47. Here is how it works you put in R500 they give you R490 back, then you play again, then its R350, then you play again then its a R100 until its R0. Don’t trust them.

    00
  48. I won R30,000 in my first year of playing was awesome!

    Payout is quick, therefore if you win you need to en-cash before 5 o’clock in the morning, to get your cash the next day. Consultants are nice and helpful always!

    00
  49. Here are the facts that I have experienced. This is not from being upset about losing etc. as I am still playing daily with them, so just the facts and lets remove the emotion. The service is very good, well it is when you have a problem depositing money. If its about anything else like, not receiving notification mails or very slow picking numbers then the problem seems to be pushed back at the player and that its your computer or mail server. I raised this issue earlier this week and management said that they will get back to me, still waiting. I have won some money, well small money between R2000 and R5000. Both times that I cashed out, the payment took 7 days for the one payment and 10 days for the other one to reflect in my account. Both times the reason was that there were system issues and they apologized before payment was done. The last instance of this happening was in December 2016. A big issue that I have is that you don’t bet on the games but rather on the outcome. That’s all good but do lottostar have the money to cover a 1 billion rand win. I asked this question to a manager on a phone call and was told lots of people have won without the question being answered. The next big issue for me are all the kino games. I have played thousands and thousands of rand on these with a biggest win on kino 12 of R5000.00. Its almost as if these games are controlled. I play the same numbers over and over and the outcomes are starting to become predictable. So why not follow the predictable path and win, well because then it changes and that’s why i say, this is their money spinner and I don’t think it gets audited and if it does something is going on. You know, it SA so something under the table. Overall though, if service can be sorted out, as well as speed, and make kino games pay a bit more then its all ok. Don’t forget to mention that if someone hits the really big one, will they be able to pay? Last point, new members get R2000.00 start up bonus, the guys that started with lotostar got nothing.

    00
  50. If this game was seriously played on an international platform, the numbers I selected for Months now, played every day would have seen a Jackpot. Someone needs to seriously do something and report these bastards.

    00
  51. As for me my only concern with the way lotto star is that, if the Jackpot is let’s say is R300million right, but they give you options like you can get all the numbers correct but instead of taking all R300m you can buy a ticket at a small price then maybe get from R70m, so I never heard that on other lotto platforms

    00
  52. I have played this for about two years now and only won R200 combined by playing twice a week. This is a big scam DON’T play it u will lose all your money

    00
  53. I randomly picked something up on the Kino games, each draw should happen in 5 minutes, but it doesn’t, if you keep an eye on the timer it randomly adds seconds and minutes to that so called 5 minutes. Now my gut feeling is telling me that it’s all computerised and they add more time if new bets comes in so that the computer can read the numbers played and choose numbers accordingly so that no one can win the so called millions or whatever you played for. It’s a money making scam by far! I actually took a video of this as it is pretty insane and fraudulent if you ask me.

    00
  54. You play, loose and then after all the money you have lost, you might get 5% back. if you win immediately then you are also screwed because you will not win again after that, you will pay them back and more.

    00
  55. The point is the win more than you have put in…not? So this company takes your R100, gives you winnings of R90, then R85 etc until its R0. Technically they win.

    00
  56. I have won R2000 on SetforLife with a R70 ticket on Lottostar. Yes, most of the payouts are small and haven’t heard of anyone yet to win a big amount. But if you are looking for quick fun games the Instant Play games are awesome, always win something with them, small amounts. Great site if you are bored at work or home and just want to have a bit of fun!

    00
    • Let me save you some money. The R2000 is a pull in to get you to play more. You will know loose more if you continue to play. So do yourself a favor and never play again from someone who has done this before.

      00
  57. Dont play, I’ve played over a year and the most winnings was R3000, but guess what I played more to get that R3000. Not worth it.

    00
  58. I too believe, it needs to be properly audited. Why has No South African ever won a tidy sum. Im sorry, but this platform is a serious SCAM…..

    00
    • Totally agree. The largest amount anyone has ever won is R750 k. How do you retire on that?
      Rip off.

      00
  59. Hi, I also had joined lottostar.co.za (looserstar). Deposit money through EFT. Did not ever gamble it away. Was give the run around due to their uselessness (it is just properly a drop of what they make out of other people). PLEASE DON,T TRUST THEM. Did not even get my money back. JUST ANOTHER BIG SCAM.

    00
  60. I never in my whole life thought that even on lottos that there are scams. I would suggest that there must be an legal arm over these auditors controlling them.
    Can’t believe there are so many people to stay skelm for their own pockets.
    But let you try do something wrong or try to cheat the lottery you in jail.
    Thanks,
    Lotto blower

    00
  61. Take your money and save it, seriously. Saving R50 per day and in 5 years you will have R 91250.00 – that’s a deposit on a house. Invest wisely and you will have more. Research a company and buy R50 worth of shares in a company and you are likely to have MUCH more.

    00
  62. This is a scam/money making for the people running Lottostar. As mentioned by others you always win less than what you put in unit you have nothing left.

    00
    • It is a cheat too. Their 2 seconds games are not fair at all. You only allowed to get 1 set of 3 matches meaning their games are set to either a lose or that specific win only. How come there is no find the first 3 to match under the plates or behind the door. Why not shoot any rock and you will get a possible 2 sets of 3 matches.

      Something as easy as find where it is “hinding”…

      00
  63. True only makes you win small prizes to keep you playing, this is a legal scam

    00
  64. When you open a account with them they give you a win, and then they just take it. So basically the first win is just to keep you dreaming fake dreams.

    00
    • The numbers are drawn overseas – not by lottostar. Lottostar only pays out on numbers over which they have NO control.
      I win small prizes more often with Lottostar than the South African Lotto. SA Lotto can declare a “winner” and take the main prize without having to prove that the “winner” is a legitimate player. And “auditors” – a joke.

      00
      • I agree with gavin, I win more often small amounts than in the SA Lotto

        00
        • Also won 3000 December with just 100 deposit and I got it following day

          00
  65. Have proof screenshot everything of how i played won about R2000 never send my results queried it they changed the betting date on their side from a daily game to week later date. Cancelled eventually the ticket big big scam lotto star.co.za

    00
  66. Always monitoring their system that when you try making a deposit they ask you if you need assistance, but never when losing your money. Fake lottery system 99.9% of losing and 0.01% of winning. No millionaire ever created by these people.

    00
  67. What Chris said, you win less than you have deposited, then you try again and again and you just lose and lose. I know a friend who spent more than a R1m and she won less back. You will never win, they will win.

    00
  68. Show me anyone on LottoStar who has won an amount over, let’s say, R1 million. Pigs will fly in the middle of July. I have NEVER heard of anyone becoming a millionaire from LottoStar. I would rather stick to Ithuba SA Lotto because at least we know that people do win and that they have created millionaires. LottoStar is a greedy organisation who will only eke out winnings like R25k, R30k etc. I’m finished with them and their almost non-existent win rate.

    00
  69. All bullish. They take your deposit and give you 50% back, then you try to recover it but you just lose more.

    00
  70. You still in reality have not bought a ticket in the overseas lottery and as such if you predict the numbers correctly through Lottostar will not be able to claim the prize and bring the money into SA! So it is in my opinion a false positive that is created and fact is they promise 2 billion rand can be won which is not true as they are never entering you into the actual draw!

    00
  71. The service provider is running a scam. You buy entries like kino. They give you a ticket, but if you by a chance look into the draws that you have been entered into, you find half the entries are missing. If you entered into 30 draws, only 18 would be shown in your account.

    00
  72. Website does not show for 3 days now the number cards so one cannot play the lottos.
    Told on helpline I have to change to Google Chrome – weak excuse & poor show.

    00
    • Do not fall for this scam, I have been playing this kind of Lottery Euromillions for 4 years and lost over R 10.000,- they send a little bit winnings like USD 3,- as a cheque and then you take it to your bank and either the bank says it is just a printed copy and not valid, or you have to pay R 150 admin fee. It should actually be forbidden to even advertise in SA, as it is forbidden in the US. It is a scam and MNet even advertises for them. Shame on Mnet.

      00
  73. Yesterday I tried to play the Euromillions – the number cards won’t open – WHY?
    Today the same with the UK lottery, also won’t open – WHY?

    00
  74. Lottostar beware of their buy one get one free ads. You can only get the free one when you have spent all your money in the kitty, some people will be willing to bet more to get the free entry hence spending more money! Is this responsible gambling!
    If you buy one you should get one free straight away no conned into spending more money!

    00
  75. In order to win a UK lotto jackpot, you need to predict the 6 winning numbers. Seems fair. To win the same lottery via Lottostar you must predict the 6 numbers AND the bonus ball.

    Does not seem fair at all.

    00
  76. I don’t see how it can be a scam. We can check the winning numbers of any lottery directly on that lottery’s webpage – we don’t have to rely on Lotto Star to tell us if our outcome-bet matches the actual numbers drawn. Thus, it can be a scam only if there is a match and Lotto Star don’t pay out. Or am I missing something?

    00
    • I’m also thinking I’ll get 7 posts claim that some people won jackpots and never receive their money. Ive seen mega millions, euro millions, etc going up to $578 million while open to the entire world but not even a single winner till maybe one person from somewhere hit it. What I want to hear is that lotto star is a scam because even if you hit a jackpot they dnt claim your money from that particular country.

      00
  77. Rubbish! All those big payouts and no one has won a jackpot yet? I think there’s something fishy going on here. Someone is running the system in the background and they are doing a good job in making sure the results don’t match your bets. Registered or not, Lottostar is a scam! Avoid!

    00
    • I agree – in the years that they have been going the largest payout was R750k – like you can retire on that amount-scam – play the local lottery. Known bets and amounts paid out.

      00
    • This is because you are not making an effort to research the odds. Winning the SA lottery used to be 1 in 14 million, but the 49 balls were increased to 52, decreasing your chances to 1 in 20 million. Now take the SuperEna in Italy for example. Getting six numbers right out of 90 balls you have a chance of 1 in 623 million! Lottostar requires that you must also have the bonus ball with the correct six, and that ball is also drawn from 90 balls which drops your chance to 1 in 56 billion. BILLION!!! Lottostar is totally legit, but the betting is constructed in such a way that the odds don’t favour you.

      00
    • Yeah, I also find it very hard to believe that no one in the last 2 years has ever won any of their big jackpots. No big jackpot winner in more than 2 years.

      00
  78. They let u win one big amount in the beginning to pull you in. Then they just take.

    • I got a similar mail stating that my ail address won 200 000 000. And when I looked further they wanted my id no and all sorts of details. With id they have your life. DO NOT GO THERE. IF IT WERE TRUE IT WOULD BE WORLD NEWS.

  80. Can anyone help me with placing bets. I’ve managed to play once and now I keep getting a “site reloading” message and cannot place any bets. When I go to re-send password or re-register site tells me “forbidden page”.

    Anyone else having the same problems.

    00
  81. It’s a game, if you win, you win, and if you lose, well, it’s not to say it’s a scam Gerhard. You are just unlucky.

    Go to a casino, if you lose on those machines are they then also scamming you. PLEASE!

    The money I use on betting is money I can throw in the trash that’s how I see it.

    Don’t take your last and play because then you will say it’s a scam because you depended on those winnings to change your circumstances and boy that will cost you dearly!

    00
  82. Lately we hear excuses of their IT problems frequently. You place bets, but you never get your tickets emailed to you, so how will you check your tickets against the drawn numbers e.g from Spanish Daily which I usually play without nothing in front of you – this is not totally not on at all…

    00
  83. I played Kino 9 with a 100 R1.00 bets and won R10,000.00 sent all relevant docs and was paid in 24 Hrs. Jan.

    00
  84. I win the odd amounts here and there and have withdrawn some just to “test” the system and it is legit. I am waiting for my R100m day.

    00
  85. I have been playing Lottostar for more than 6 months. I play Keno 9 and 12 almost daily and I can tell you now it’s rigged. I have deposited more than 20k and my biggest win was R2000. This is why they make such a big ohhh ahh when there is a winner of R25k because it only happen once in a blue moon not to mention not even one winner more that 25k. Do not waste your time or money playing Keno games. I played my last money last night and will never do it again. If you don’t win big in 6 months you not going to win big. You win 75% back until you have nothing left. People should know this. Don’t play this game.

    00
  86. Not won anything BIG yet, but for sure it’s on my way any time soon. On the little that I have won they were great, money paid out no hassles! Thanks Lottostar for the opportunity!

    00
  87. Really not lucky at all, 2 grand later and I got nada!!! Share the strategy Chris, share the wealth 🙂

    00
  88. Well, that seems like just hard luck, I have won 2 x R20000 on Kino 9 and another 2 x R10000 as well, I have also won quite a couple of thousand on the other games, I never got payouts like this in the South African Lottery!! Go LottoStar I love u guys, friendly, helpful and so much fun to play. And money in my account next morning!

    00
  89. I still want to know if these lotto’s is based on the outcome of the overseas lotto’s Bonoloto and Superena in both you only need to match your 6 main numbers to win the jackpot prize but with lotto star you need to match the 6 plus the Bonus or Super Star numbers on the Spanish Daily and Super Ena to Win the Jackpot and I’ve also found that on selecting your own numbers on Spanish Daily after selecting your 6 main numbers and want to make a selections for your Bonus number all 6 main numbers you have chosen is not available to choose for the bonus number eg you choose 5 8 13 21 39 48 none of these numbers is available to choose as a Bonus number.

    00
  90. Of course you are not going to get your money back – what Nick does not highlight is you have a better chance of going to the moon than winning more than you are betting. You have more chance of winning money in a casino than on this site – the odds are stacked so heavily against you. That’s why you may win something, but your winnings will shrink until you will have to put in more money and more money and more money… There is a good reason why gambling is said to be evil.

    00
  91. I have won 50000 on EuroMillions by just betting with R 100. I have to say I never thought that I could ever win that much money in my life! Lottostar is awesome and I am still playing, their call center agents are great with high quality of keeping their customers happy. They’re friendly and patient, I normally deal with a lady named Natalia, she is just the sweetest person on Earth, has a lot of patients and listens to me and do whatever she has to in order to sort out any problems…

    00
    • Guys, a word of caution – if you really want to test it out then try betting R100 or try betting for a week or two and see where it gets you. Betting like this may not be rigged but winning more than you have invested with the odds stacked so heavily against you is virtually impossible.

      00
    • Hi George, my husband is blind he cannot see at all but he can hear we have this computer that talks ???? He told me about Natalia too he always asks for her when he wants to play she spends hours on the fone helping and guiding him through the games from A to B and after minutes of dropping the fone she calls back to find out if everything was okay did he manage to find stuff on the site coz she would help with one game and he would try and do the next one on his own she always ends up helping and guiding again hahahaha but he really likes Natalia for who she is Lottostar is blessed to have her i swear.. The other agents would probably assist him as well but seems he would rather deal with Nat he said one day if he wins big he would gladly give her a mill lol????

      00
  92. The Kino games are all a moneymaking scene. I have played R2000 on Kino 12 betting 52 draws at a time. I was playing day and night non stop bets and you only win back 75% of your money till you have nothing left. No where online will you hear of a Kino winner in the Millions and or hundred thousands. If I can’t win even R200 in over a thousand bets you will NOT win the millions or thousands.

    00
    • Thats so true. I play R80 one time. Get R20 back. And then you end up with nothing.

      00
  93. I was rather skeptical at first but in my second week I matched 4 and got R2500. (Euromillions) It was a bit of a rigmarole uploading acceptable FICA documents in order to withdraw, but once that was done I was paid out in 48 hours.

    00
  94. Any won anything of substantial value and got paid out by this site?

    00
    • I won R 50 000 last year and after loading the relevant Fica documents, I was paid within 9 days.

      00
    • I won R7000 in Oct 2015 and after uploading the relevant supporting documents, my winnings too was paid out within 48 hours. I played the Spanish Daily.

LottoStar Exposed — Legal Lottery Betting for South Africans

LottoStar Review

There are very few South African sites, letting you legally bet online on international lotteries instead of buying tickets. LottoStar isn’t one of them.

If you first take a look at the platform, you may think that it enables you to participate in international lottery games.

This isn’t the case. You’re betting against the results of the lottery. You’re not getting a ticket for an international game that’s providing a chance to win the jackpot. Hence, in the event of winning, you will receive a prize from LottoStar itself.

If you like betting, this option may be the right choice for you. Here’s how LottoStar works, what it has to offer, and how happy customers have been with the services provided.

Games at LottoStar

Players can bet on the outcome of Italy’s SuperEnaLotto, EuroMillions, Africa Millions, Kino 10, Kino 12, Kino 14 and Kino 16 games. A few of the additional choices include the UK Lottery Plus, Oz Lotto, Oz Powerball, Spanish Daily, EuroJackpot, the USA Powerball, USA Mega Millions, Gold Rush Millions, etc.

What’s a bit misleading here is the fact that LottoStar presents information about the game and the jackpot currently available. As a result, some players may feel misled that they’re buying a ticket for the actual game and the actual drawing. This isn’t so – players are betting against the result of the respective lottery they choose.

LottoStar offers fixed odds betting. Here’s how it differs from the official jackpot of the game. If you play EuroMillions, the estimated current jackpot you could win is 17 million euro. The odds of claiming the top prize are one in 139,838,160. If you play the betting game via LottoStar, you can win a maximum of 25 million South African rands, which is the equivalent of 1.59 million euro. The difference is a serious one and something to keep in mind when deciding whether you’re going to play LottoStar.

The standard bet cost for this specific game is five rands, but the prices may differ from one international lottery to another.

Lotto Star Extras

On any of the game pages, the jackpot booster lets players increase or decrease the prize values per tier, while the Win-O-Meter shows you what your chance of winning is. Another feature geared at enhancing your experience is the Quick Pick button. It lets the system randomly select your numbers on each entry per draw without you having to. The Max All button randomly selects numbers for an entire row of bets and increases the boost of each bet to the maximum.

Boost 25 is another unique feature. It has you paying more for a ticket, which doubles the size of the prize in the event of winning.

Boost 50 is even more expensive, but it increases prizes even further. In the EuroMillions example above, the standard top prize is 25 million rands. When Boost 50 is activated, this prize rises to 75 million rands. There’s also a boost 125 (it costs 18 rands for EuroMillions, and the top prize becomes 150 million rands) and Boost 200 (the cost is 27 rands, and the top prize becomes 225 million rands).

LottoStar offers a couple of additional features on top of betting on international lottery outcomes.

There are sports betting for a wide array of games like soccer, to basketball, rugby and Formula 1. Sports betting options are available under a separate tab on the website, and there, you’ll find information about the terms and conditions.

Live Games is the newest feature on LottoStar. There are a couple of popular options like Deal or No Deal, Monopoly and Lightning Dice.

Winning with LottoStar.co.za

You can claim any winnings in your LottoStar account at any time within ninety (90) days. LottoStar will notify you via email once you’ve won. Once the prize is credited to your account, you may withdraw R100 or more, or convert your winnings into play credits.

You may continue converting your winnings into play credits for single wins up to R25,000. Players can easily upload certified FICA documents (proof or identify and address) via the website to withdraw or convert bigger wins (over R25,000) into play credits. LottoStar will pay into any bank account in South Africa following FICA regulations and our bookmaker’s license.

Both deposits and withdrawals on the website are possible in several ways. LottoStar accepts Visa and MasterCard, direct bank deposits and withdrawals, SnapScan, SID, PayFast, EasyPay, MyGate, and several other payment processing services.

Keep in mind there have been some complaints about payment processing and extra charges. LottoStar reviews often mention such issues, and you may want to be careful about depositing large amounts in the account.

How Do They Do It?

LottoStar operates under a Mpumalanga Gaming Authority license. This means that the platform has to follow South African rules and regulations to carry out its betting activities. You can rest assured that the website is not a scam due to this certificate.

LottoStar doesn’t provide any further information about its operations. How are funds managed? Whether some of the money generated is dedicated to beneficial causes (like in the case of standard lottery operators)?

Still, the online betting provided by the company is pretty standard and straightforward. Many other online platforms across the globe offer similar functionalities, and the principle is more or less the same.

Who Can Play?

Anyone over 18 in South Africa can bet on Lottostar’s games. When you register and submit your ID number, third-party provider IDECO will instantly verify your details so that you can start playing immediately. If not, you’ll need to upload a copy of your ID document.

To have your winnings paid into your South African bank account, you need to upload a copy of your South African ID. It can also be a passport for non-South African citizens; as well as proof of address and the latest bank statement.

Who is behind LottoStar.co.za?

LottoStar labels itself as the first accredited lottery and betting website to receive regulatory approval and start operating in South Africa.

The website has an extensive FAQ page that answers some of the most critical questions potential players may have. There are also several distinctive methods for getting in touch with the customer support team.

LottoStar provides a physical office address, an email, and a phone number (0860-26-7777) that’s available from Monday to Sunday from 7 a.m. to 10:30 p.m. Still, there have been some complaints in LottoStar reviews about the quality of the customer service and the adequacy of the team responsible for assisting website members.

Other than that, it’s challenging to find additional information about the entity behind this digital betting enterprise. The website does have security certificates and other safety features to protect the information of users. You shouldn’t worry about giving LottoStar a try, even though support may be somewhat sluggish.

Would you mind rating LottoStar.co.za?

The Bottom Line at LottoStar

You are betting on international lottery outcomes rather than buying lottery tickets online. Buying lottery tickets online constitutes online gambling, which is still illegal in South Africa. Placing fixed-odds bets online with approved operators is legal.

This being said, LottoStar does offer somewhat misleading wording, and we believe this is intentional. Many new players think that they’re getting a ticket for an international lottery, which later on proves not to be the case.

LottoStar has some excellent characteristics and some features that aren’t too great. Let’s break those down.

Pros:

Fixed prize betting options

Legal betting in a country where online gambling is illegal

Payouts are guaranteed

There are multiple withdrawal and deposit methods for players to choose among

There are numerous betting options, sports betting and an array of online games

Add-ons and special features can be activated to increase the eventual payout in the event of winning

Cons:

Exclusive to South Africa

Misleading wording that makes some players believe they’re buying international lottery tickets

Jackpots and payouts that are much lower than what the official lottery has to offer

Some of the add-ons can be quite expensive to activate

There have been complaints about the quality of the customer service

There is very little information about the entity behind LottoStar

LottoStar does provide an extensive opportunity no other operator makes available in South Africa. If you like sports betting or testing your luck in different ways, you may enjoy the games. The platform is certified, and it features the right security functionalities to give you a consistent, risk-free experience.

Still, if you’re looking for ways to play online lotteries, this isn’t the platform for you. Do take a look at the multiple LottoStar reviews here to get a better idea about what the service is and whether it’s worth your try.
