You may know Lottostar from their radio and DStv adverts, or maybe you’ve been to their website or found them on social media. In case you haven’t, we’ve had a look at what they offer and we think they’re fantastic.
They’re currently running a massive promotion with 947FM’s Stacey Norman handing out up to R25,000 every week. Last year, 5FM’s Darren ‘Whackhead’ Simpson handed out brand new iPhone 6s to players every day for 90 days. They even sent two guest travellers to Las Vegas to witness the Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao ‘Fight of the Century’. With all these promotions, they seem to be doing something right.
All this begs a pertinent question. What exactly is Lottostar?
Lottostar is a licensed fixed-odds betting company. They focus on international lotteries and offer jackpot prizes that have never been seen before in South Africa. The Mpumalanga Gambling and Racing Board has vetted and approved their operations, so we know they are legitimate. Their payouts are also guaranteed since all of their jackpot wins are insured.
Why bet on international lotteries when you can play the national lottery?
Firstly, Lottostar lets you bet on the outcomes of international lotteries, rather than play the lottery online. Playing international lotteries online from South Africa is technically illegal, but betting with a licensed operator is completely legal. Unlike regular lottery games, when you bet and win one of their jackpots, you don’t have to worry about sharing your winnings with anyone else who also picks the winning numbers.
Their biggest drawcard isn’t just the guaranteed mega jackpots ranging from R75,000,000 to R160,000,000, but the frequency of the draws. Lottostar has three mega jackpot draws that take place throughout the week. These are the SuperEnaLotto, Spanish Daily and EuroMillions draws. At least two of these run concurrently on most days and Tuesday is the day that all of the draws take place at the same time.
Lottostar also offers a range of instant Kino games that take place every five minutes 24/7. These games let you win up to R9 million in an instant. Instead of purchasing tickets and having to wait for lottery draws twice a week, you now have access to quick draws all day.
How much does it cost to play?
Lottostar’s mega jackpot games start at R3.50 for standard bets. Depending on the game that you are playing, you can also spend a little extra to boost your bets so that your jackpot increases to up to R160,000,000.
Play one of their Kino games and you could find yourself betting from as little as R1 and winning between R25,000 and R9,000,000 in jackpot prizes.
