Everyone is familiar with the concept of a lottery, after all, it's the most popular form of gambling around. The idea of lottery betting is less well known, but for fans of lotto draws it holds a number of great advantages over the old method of entering the lottery.

No More Country Restrictions

One of the biggest advantages is the lack of geographical restrictions, which has always been something that has held the lottery back.

Traditionally lotteries were ticket only, and even with the rise of the internet most draws were restricted to residents of that particular country. However, lottery betting means that no longer applies.

Providing your country allows online gambling, it doesn't matter where you are. Lottery betting means players can enter the US PowerBall from England, Germany, Australia etc.

Bonuses and Special Offers

Another reason why lottery betting is overtaking the traditional lottery draw is the wealth of exclusive bonuses that lottery betting companies can give their customers.

For example, lotto betting giants Lottoland regularly run boosted prizes, known as Special Jackpots, which dwarf the money available in the main draw. They also offer 'Rollover Reloads', where their players are able to win the boosted rollover jackpots, even if there was a winner in the previous draw.

There are also other little rewards for players such as free lines and buy one get one free deals, which aren't typically available through traditional providers.


Lottery betting opens up a world of lottery draws to the average players, but it also allows providers such as Lottoland to be more creative with their products. Recently they have launched Cash4Life, with a jackpot that pays out 1,000 per day for the rest of your life.

On top of that there are games and scratchcards where you can win real money instantly, which means you don't have to wait around for the lotto draws to be called.
