Decoding your account balance: what does it really mean?

Types of winnings

There are various sections in your account with different totals. Your account balance is built up of various prizes that you’ve accumulated from playing various lotteries, instant win games, raffles and participating in our promotional offers. At any given moment, you can accumulate winnings from three sets of prize brackets; cash, bonuses and vouchers. The games you play determine the prizes you’ll potentially win and the prizes you win then determines how you can redeem that specific prize.

Now that you have a rough idea of how things work, let’s break it down even further!

  1. Cash

    This prize bracket consists of money that you have acquired from various sources like:

    • Money you have deposited yourself.

    • Instant Win Games, Scratchcards and Keno winnings: any winnings accumulated this way will automatically be added to your account.

    • Lottery or raffle winnings that you redeemed to play credits.

  2. Bonus

    This section in your account balance refers to prizes that were redeemed through special promotions ran by This is a build up from promos like:

    • Cashback offers: (e.g. deposit 100 and get 100 free). With this promotion you walk away with a bonus balance of 100 and a cash balance of 100, giving you 200 in total.

    • Bonus triggers: various promotions offer various selling points. Depending on the promotion running at the time, your account will be credited with the specific bonus that was promoted. To make the entire experience a winning one, we’ll give you an extra 5% bonus if you use Entropay to settle your account.

  3. Vouchers

    Vouchers act as a gift to play 1 entry for 1 lottery. Vouchers are flexible in the sense that you can have and use several different vouchers for various lotteries. This is how you accumulate them:

    • The Welcome Offer: there’s always a welcome offer running, depending on what we’re gifting players, if you participate, you get it. Who doesn’t like free stuff?

    • Participating in bonus offers: this is usually referred to as the buy/get offers, “buy 3 SuperEna Max tickets and get 1 USA Powerball FREE!”.
