Automated lottery subscriptions can be a blessing and a curse at the same time – depending on the person playing the lottery. For the lazy person, an automated subscription lessens the work needed to play the lottery and allows a passive income to roll in (if you win) however there are downfalls to this as well. Let’s explain.
If you weren’t aware by now, an automated lottery subscription allows players to sign up to a certain lottery ‘plan’ and then pay for the services of having tickets or plays facilitated on their behalf from an online provider. In our opinion, it is a great way to play the lottery if you have a busy schedule and it also saves you money in some cases where you purchase bundles or pay a set price.
I signed up for what exactly?
The problem however lies in the fine print of the terms and conditions of the online platform you may be dealing with. While some subscription offers are stock standard and come with a monthly fee, others on the other hand may come with extra add-ons and other gimmicks. For instance, if you were to sign up for 3 tickets for the first time, it is possible that your automated subscription will constantly charge you for three tickets at a time or 3 tickets to a selection of different lotteries too.
It is therefore extremely important to know exactly what you are signing up for to avoid any extra additions and costs. Depending on which option you choose, the subscription will deduct credit from your account consecutively at certain set periods. In the event that you do not have enough credit at a certain period, you may be charged double come the next instalment.
How do I cancel?
If you find that this plan doesn’t work for you, or you can no longer afford to play and want to cancel the subscription – Surprise! It’s not as easy as signing up was. Opting out is generally a painful process of paying a cancellation fee and waiting a certain period until you are finally rid of it for good.
The advantages of subscriptions are that they are super convenient and offer an array of benefits which may even increase your winning chances. By constantly playing the lottery using a lottery subscription, you can also increase your winning chances.
