Lottostar is an online fixed-odds betting service that has enriched lots of South African citizens and settled their financial needs amid the country’s tight financial climate.
Being the first of its kind in South Africa, the lottery service has been licensed and approved by the Mpumalanga Gambling and Racing Board; an online fixed-odds betting service. No wonder majority of South Africans describe it as an answered prayer for bigger jackpot games.
Via this lottery service, a number of South Africans are left excited having won the guaranteed jackpot prizes of nine digits which is about R160,000,000.
What makes this even more appealing, is that for as little as R3.50 for a single entry, one can confidently play for the jackpot prize of one’s choice. With a total of six games being available for unlimited entry to registered players, the player is actually left quite spoilt for choice. It’s a 50/50 split; there are three mega-jackpot games, and three instant-jackpot games – so let’s take a quick look at both playing options
The three big-ticket jackpot games on LottoStar.co.za are as follows:
- The EuroMillions,
- Spanish Daily,
- SuperEnaLotto games
EuroMillions Game: This is the least of the three where one is able to play for R25,000,000 all the way up to R75,000,000; with the draws taking place every Tuesday and Thursday.
Spanish Daily Game: This one is unique to Lotto Star as registered players are allowed to take advantage of the game’s R30,000,000 to R90,000,000 jackpot prize. The draws for this game happen daily – from Monday till Saturday.
SuperEnaLotto game: This is the highest of it all as registered players are allowed to go home with a massive nine-digit jackpot prize via this game.
The instant-jackpot games are, however, another medium where players can take home some prizes. Under this game are smaller jackpot prizes. This is because these games are drawn every 5 minutes. Literally, within the next 5 minutes, you could become up to R3,000,000 richer!
Recently, LottoStar teamed up with popular South African radio jock and comedian, Darren Whackhead Simpson, to launch an incredible promotion called the massive iPhone 6 giveaway promotion through which a total of 90 devices are being awarded to players.
The promotion is well underway, with disbelieving winners still not convinced that they’ve actually won right up until the moment they rip the packaging off their prizes.
Overall, LottoStar.co.za is quite impressive; and a website well worth a check out at the very least. Who knows – perhaps you might become South Africa’s newest multimillionaire!
