Winning the lottery feels amazing, whether you win something small or something major. You feel like you’re on top of the world. And the bigger the prize the more fun it is. But once you win that prize you want to go and get it, right away, right? You want to get the money in your hand as soon as possible. But if you’re playing lottery online it can be a little bit more difficult to do that. That’s why you might be wondering just how long it takes to get your lottery winnings.
When you play the lottery online you actually have an easier process than you might think. See, you buy the ticket with your numbers and we take care of getting that ticket. When we do get that ticket you can see it in your account. Then, when you win, you don’t have to do anything at all because we already know that you’ve won and we make sure that you get the information right away. So, you will know that you’ve won immediately, which means you can start the celebration then.
As for getting the actual money in your account that doesn’t take much longer. Small amounts of up to €2500 will be deposited into your online account immediately. You don’t have to request it or ‘turn in’ your ticket or anything. We put the money directly into your online account as soon as we know that you’ve won. It’s just that simple. How often have you bought a physical ticket and had someone come to find you because you won money? It definitely doesn’t happen that way, right?
But what happens if you win a larger prize? Well, if you win a large prize you may have to fill out paperwork to claim it. That’s not for our team, but for the government of whichever lottery that you’ve won. If that’s the case then getting your money could take a little bit longer. These large prizes make take a few days to process fully. This is because of the extra steps involved for you to prove your claim to the government in charge of it and for us to get the money on your behalf. Of course, if you win the ultimate jackpot on some lotteries you won’t even need to go through us to get your money, you’ll get it on your own.
Some countries, like the United States, require jackpot winners of certain amounts and certain lotteries to come forward. That means you would need to go through a more extensive process in order to get the jackpot. It might take longer than a few days because you may even need to travel to the United States in order to be presented with the money in person. Some people prefer this process for major jackpots even in countries that don’t require it, which could increase the amount of time that you have to wait to get the money into your account.
Lately, one jackpot winner successfully claimed his right to remain anonymous though. So if you do not want (or cannot) travel to the USA to get your prize, we can definitely help you with that too.
If you’re playing the lottery online then the most important part is that you can get your winnings quickly. Depending on the amount that you win, you could get the money within the exact moment that you have won or you could get it within a day or a few days. Keep in mind that how much you win is going to impact how long it actually takes for the money to be put into your account. From there, it’s going to be entirely up to you what you want to do with that money, whether you transfer it to your standard bank account or leave it in your online account and keep playing.
Lastly, we would like to remind you that RedFoxLotto does not deduce any commission from your winnings!
