The Inner Workings of Lottery Messenger Services

Serving as an independent, third-party facilitator, Lottery Messenger Services take your orders and use your payment to procure official lottery tickets on your behalf. A scanned copy of your purchased ticket is made available in your secure, online account before the draw. The original ticket is safely stored to prevent any loss or damage.

Concerns over receiving winnings are a thing of the past when you play using MagicLotto. The platform has, to date, disbursed over R50 million in prizes to more than 500 000 winners in South Africa, Namibia and neighboring countries.

MagicLotto's collection and transfer service will secure your prize from the Lottery Operator and transfer it to your account. For substantial winnings, winners are given various options to personally collect their prize from the respective Lottery Operator. MagicLotto’s Terms of Use affirm you as the rightful owner of the ticket, and the platform holds no legal claim to your tickets or your winnings.

MagicLotto provides you with two proofs of your ticket ownership:

1.      A confirmation email at the time of ticket purchase.

2.      Details about your transaction are available for viewing in your online account.

These two items collectively form a legal basis that identifies you as the rightful owner of the ticket!


Claiming Your Prize: The Process

For winnings less than R50 000, MagicLotto will collect your prize on your behalf from the Lottery Operator and transfer it directly into your online account. You can then choose to withdraw your money using your chosen payment method, or leave some or all of the winnings in your online account for future ticket purchases.

For winnings equal to or exceeding R50 000, you can personally collect it or have it transferred into your bank account. For jackpot winnings, you will personally collect the prize directly from the associated Lottery Operator with MagicLotto’s assistance. Reasonable and justified travel expenses will be covered by MagicLotto.

In the event of a massive win, it's recommended to hire a foreign language assistant and a good lawyer in your country before departing to claim your prize. For additional advice, you can contact us at support@magiclotto.co.za.
