XO Lotto Review
Playing the lottery online ushered in a whole new era for players who love getting their tickets to upcoming draws. It is no wonder that there are now so many great sites to play on.
In this XOLotto.com review, we will look at how this new site operates and what it could do for you. We will also see if it is safe to use and whether or not you should register a player account.
How Does It Work?
As with any online lottery website, the first step is to register a player account. We assume that this is a pretty simple process. However, we were unable to test this.
The reason we couldn’t get this right is the site kept saying that it is not yet available in our country. We tried, as usual, to get around this by using a VPN through a different (supported) country.
After trying three different VPNs in nine different countries, we accepted defeat. In fact, even the countries that the site proudly states they operate in wouldn’t work.
So, if you can actually get the site to operate from where you are, you should be able to register a player account. We assume that the usual data such as your name, age, and location will be required.
Once you have managed to do this, you can choose from the available lotteries. The process of actually purchasing a ticket is straightforward and similar to any other site.
One thing that you should note, however, is that XO Lotto is not an online lottery agent. Instead, they operate as a lottery betting website.
This means that you aren’t actually purchasing a ticket in your chosen lottery. Instead, you are placing a bet on what the outcome of the lottery results will be.
Is XOLotto.com Legit or a Scam?
Aside from the fact that the site doesn’t appear to want any new customers, the site seems legitimate.
It is operated under a license issued by the government of Curacao and is licensed by Curacao eGaming. This means that everything the site does is monitored to ensure your safety.
The site also proudly boasts that all jackpots are 100% guaranteed. This is possible thanks to the insurers that the site works with, who pay your winnings should you be a major winner.
Another plus is that the site is owned and operated by Clubhouse Media N.V., who runs numerous other online gaming websites.
The terms and conditions are also pretty solid and cover almost everything you could think of.
Aside from the fact that there is a massive banner stating that we are ‘too quick’ and that the site is not operating in any of the many countries we tried from, the site is great.
The design of the site is very modern. It is easy to see that there was some serious thought put into the design and the overall feel of the website.
Getting around is also pretty simple between the top menu bar and the bottom footer menu. Pages also load surprisingly quickly.
The site is mobile friendly and you will be fine viewing it on a cell phone. This makes up for the fact that there is no dedicated mobile app.
There are 15 of the biggest international lotteries supported by XOLotto.com. This means that you will have a decent selection to choose from when buying a ticket.
Supported lotteries are:
- German Lotto
- UK Lotto
- Irish Lotto
- Canada Lotto 6/49
- Super Lotto Plus
- US Powerball
- New York Lotto
- La Primitiva
- Lucky 4 Life
- Mega Millions
- El Gordo Primitiva
- Oz Lotto
In addition to lotteries, the site offers two visible extras:
- Keno: There are four keno games offered that have a new draw every minute. These are great instant-win games that could give you a decent windfall if you are lucky enough. However, of the four games, two of them were not even active during our review and were greyed out. The site only stated that they are Coming Soon. This makes us think this section is still in development.
- Scratch Cards: The scratch card section of the site is definitely still under development. While there were banner ads on other sections of the site advertising available scratchers, navigating to the scratcher part of the site reveals none.
Supported payment methods include Visa, MasterCard, MuchBetter, Eco Pay, Bank Wire, and Bitcoin.
According to the terms and conditions of the site, withdrawals can be made using these same methods.
How to Claim Your Winnings
As is one of the standard perks of playing online, all winnings are automatically paid into your online account without any action on your side.
The exception to this is when you win a jackpot or second-tier prize.
As per the terms and conditions, the site has the right to pay jackpots and second-tier prizes as annuities. To this end, you are required to undergo verification before your prize will be paid out.
This verification is standard and will require you to submit proof of identity and address.
The good news is that XO Lotto says that they will contact you if you have won big.
There is a comprehensive FAQ section available that answers almost any question.
If you want to speak to an actual support member, there is an online form and a support email address (email@example.com).
The FAQ section of the site also states that there is a live chat available. However, we found no evidence of this anywhere on the site.
At the time of our review, it did not appear that there were any welcome bonuses available. However, this could be because the site refused to allow us to register.
In terms of promotions, the site offers an ongoing promotion called Free Bets. This will give you a free ticket to a lottery draw of your choice.
To qualify, you will need to refer a friend who then registers an account on XO Lotto. That friend will then also receive a free bet.
Rules and Regulations
The normal restriction that you have to be 18 years of age or older is applied to anyone trying to register an account.
In addition, only players that don’t live in the following countries can use the site:
- The USA and its territories
- United Kingdom
- Hong Kong
- Dutch West Indies
We find it very strange that one of the countries banned is also the country in which the site operates.
XOLotto.com Review Conclusion
XOLotto.com looks great on paper. The concept is great and the terms and conditions have clearly been written with the expansion of the site in mind.
However, considering that we couldn’t get to use the site after bouncing around the globe, things don’t look great for the future.
Another thing that concerns us is that the country the site operates out of happens to also be one of the countries that aren’t allowed to use the site. That makes no sense.
So, if you can actually access the site properly, we don’t think you’ll have any problems with XO Lotto.
However, currently, we would recommend looking at the many other great online lotto sites available.
