DottoLotto.com offers two ways to bet: Single Line Lottery Bets and Lottery Syndicates.
A Single Line Lottery Bet is similar to buying a lottery ticket but it is a bet on the outcome of the underlying Lotto draw. You choose your own numbers or use 'Lucky Dip', in which a combination of numbers is selected, add all your selections to your cart and then checkout to place your bet.
To place a Single Line Lottery Bet you must follow the next steps:
a) Choose the lottery you wish to enter from the Lottery page.
b) Select the numbers you want to bet on. You can either select your own numbers or use 'Lucky Dip' to play with randomly generated number combinations from DottoLotto.com. You can use the 'Lucky Dip' buttons multiple times, to pre-select as many randomly generated number combinations as you want.
c) Choose the draw days. Some lotteries are drawn multiple times per week, so you can choose to enter one or more of the available draw days. If today is Wednesday, and the options Tuesday and Friday are available, the actual draws will go in the order Friday then Tuesday.
d) Choose the bet frequency. You can choose 'Just once', which means to play the chosen lines, on the chosen days one time (so if you chose Tuesday and Friday, it will play those days once each), 'Subscription', where a you will play the chosen lines every week until you cancel your subscription, or 'Prepay', where you will prepay for the following number of weeks in advance, and we will continue to place bets on those prepaid lines each week.
e) Add the Bet to your Playslip.
f) Go to the checkout to confirm your bet.
DottoLotto.com's Lottery Syndicates are a type of "lottery syndicate shares", in other words a great way of getting more chances to win. Each Lottery Syndicate can contain hundreds of lines, meaning you have hundreds of chances to win each week.
Lottery lines (number selections) are entered into a pool divided into 100 shares, and you can buy one or more shares. The more the lottery lines in the package you choose, the greater the chances to win a prize are.
The amount of shares you purchase influences how much you will win also. For example, if there are 100 total shares in a syndicate and you hold 10 of them, you receive one tenth of the winnings (so on a €1000 prize, you win €100). Buying extra shares does not increase the chances of winning, but if you win, you will win more, based on the number of shares purchased.
There are several different Lottery Syndicates available at DottoLotto.com and we are adding new and exciting Syndicates all the time. You can also choose from Syndicates with different amounts of lines. All of our Syndicates contain a selection of the world’s biggest lotteries.
We are adding new Syndicates all the time.

To buy one of our Lottery Syndicates ou must follow the next steps:
a) Choose the syndicate you wish to enter from the Syndicate page.
b) Choose how many shares you want to purchase. You can choose one or multiple shares.
c) Choose the frequency you want to participate in draws. You can choose 'Just once', which means to play the chosen Syndicate for a single week (for the number of draws contained within the syndicate), 'Subscription', where you will play the chosen Syndicate every week until you cancel your subscription, or 'Prepay', where you will prepay for the following number of weeks in advance, and we will continue to place bets on the prepaid package each week.
d) Add the Syndicate to your shopping basket.
e) Go to the checkout to confirm your bet.
You can increase the chances to win a prize by increasing the number of shares or by choosing a Syndicate with a high number of lines or by doing a combination of both.
You can also buy more than one Syndicate. Since they all include different lottery lines, the more you buy, the more chances you have to win a prize every day!
