Online Lottery Guide

People have been enjoying playing lottery games for years and while having a physical ticket to check when the numbers are drawn can add to the excitement of playing the game, did you know that there are loads of ways you can play Lottery games online?

Types of lotteries and tickets

Firstly, you don't need to head out to the shops to buy your ticket. If you forget or if the weather is a bit drab and you can't be bothered going out, you can still take part in a range of different lotteries from the comfort of your own couch.

As well as the UK’s National Lottery, there’s also several other lottery companies you can buy tickets from, with different jackpots, prize draws and games. These include: Lottoland, Ice Lotto and Conglotto. Some will just enter you into smaller lottery draws where as others give you the option of entering world-wide draws with millions of pounds to be won!

Depending on which lottery you want to try your luck at there’s usually the option of lucky dip tickets where the computer randomly picks the numbers, or you can choose your own lucky numbers. There’s often the option of being part of a bigger syndicate or entering multiple lotteries at once. Many sites allow you to purchase tickets weeks in advance too, which is handy if you’re prone to forgetting or going on holiday and don’t want to miss out!

Buying a ticket

Ticket prices vary depending on which lottery you want to take part in and you can usually buy your tickets on direct debit so you never miss out on a draw. Alternatively, if you just fancy trying your luck when the mood suits, you can do that too.

There is a range of ways to pay depending on which site you want to play from. Each site will tell you what payment methods are accepted but expect to see most card types accepted, Paypal, NetTeller and the new Boku Payment method.


One of the reasons playing in lotteries has remained so popular is of course the life-changing prizes offered. The UK’s National Lottery jackpot is usually around the £2 million mark with a millionaire raffle number, which is included in the ticket price, guaranteeing £1million to one lucky player. Other games such as the Thunderball have £500k jackpots and the Euromillions tickets can roll over into the tens, even hundreds of millions!
