What is an Online Lottery?
Lotteries involve a set of numbers drawn at random to win a prize. The rules for online lottery aren’t very different from those of its offline counterpart.
A game of chance with low odds, lottery is now an international phenomenon with a global player base. No wonder it is played in over 100 countries worldwide.
There are two types of online lotteries currently popular with players. The first one is the official website that hosts the game. You place a bet and the operator draws the lucky numbers.
The second one is a lottery betting site that lets you place your bet on either the numbers of the official lottery draw or the outcome.
