Playing Online Lotteries Safely
Here are 5 things you should know about playing lotteries online.
1.) Make sure that the online lottery site is secure. Look for the lock! Websites that are secure have a small symbol of a padlock prominently displayed. This way you know that your personal information is safe. If you don’t see that symbol of safety and security, hit the back button and find another online lottery site.
3.) Before playing lotteries online, check to see if the lottery site will charge a fee on your winnings. If they do—go somewhere else. A legitimate, trustworthy online lottery site will not impose fees on your winnings. Find out more about our ticket process on our FAQ page.
4.) Does the online lottery ticket vendor display contact details? If a website is dodgy about letting you know how to contact them if you need to, there is probably a reason and it is likely to be a reason that bodes ill for you. Make sure there is adequate contact information.
5.) You should only play lotteries online from your own home computer. Entering credit or debit card information over an open Wi-Fi network or from an internet café can be a bit more risky!
