Division of winnings

When you win, MagicLotto.co.za will immediately cash in your ticket and inform you of your win. A winning ticket will be divided as follows (NO SERVICE CHARGE or SYNDICATE MANAGER FEE IS CHARGED FOR SOUTH AFRICAN LOTTERY): 95% is paid out to the Player; 4% is retained by MagicLotto.co.za as a service charge; and 1% is paid to the syndicate manager (who is responsible for purchasing, safeguarding and claiming the prizes).
MagicLotto.co.za will be responsible to ensure that the syndicate manager claims the prize for any winning ticket, and once the claim is approved by the lottery board concerned, MagicLotto will pay out the prize to the parties in accordance with the percentages outlined above.

Ticket cost

The cost of the ticket depends on which lottery you are buying an entry for. Prices range between £2.50 and £4.00 for UK and Euro Lottery and R3.50 and R5 for South African Lottery. However, current prices are always published on the website before and during the ticket purchasing process. The total price advertised on includes the price of the ticket and our service fee.

Erroneous Information

A permanent record is made of lottery numbers to be played for each Player, on submission of the lottery ticket purchasing form. A confirmation of the purchase is sent to each Player directly after submission. In the event that the information received by the Player is incorrect, the Player shall not be entitled to any claim or prize. The actual ticket purchased will dictate the claim. The Player must immediately notify MagicLotto of this erroneous information.
The Player waives any claim against MagicLotto for failure to obtain the proper ticket.

Cut-off times

We will accept ticket purchases no less than 4 hours before any given draw. Please ensure that tickets are purchased within this time frame. A late entry will result in the ticket submission automatically being entered into the following draw.
