Where to Play
You can play the Ganesha Bumper from anywhere in India. Whether you’re located in Maharashtra or Manipur, Goa or Gujarat, the game is available in every state. You’ll also find it in many other countries around the world.
The Ganesha Bumper is not like other bumper draws which you can only play from the same state where it is being held. It is part of Lotto India, a game which was developed for the whole of India.
It’s an online-only lottery, so you won’t find playslips at your local store. Instead, all you need is a phone, tablet or computer and you can take part from the comfort of your own home or if you’re out and about. It’s easy to set up an account - just register and verify using your email address. You just have to be at least 18 years of age.
As it is an online game, it is tailored towards players in different states and also different countries. There are various banking options and a payment process which is done automatically so you receive prizes without having to travel anywhere to claim.
You can pick up an entry to join in with the festivities of Ganesh Chaturthi from nations all over the world. However, the Ganesh Bumper is not available everywhere due to local laws and restrictions. Some countries have their own rules which do not allow users to take part in international lotteries.
A full list of restricted countries is shown below:
- Czech Republic
- Democratic People’s Republic of Korea
- France (including: Reunion, Martinique, Guadeloupe, French Southern Territories, French Guiana, French Polynesia and New Caledonia)
- Hong Kong
- Palestinian Territory
- USA (including: US Virgin Islands, Puerto Rico, Guam, American Samoa, Northern Mariana Islands and US Minor Outlying Islands)
The restrictions in these countries apply to all international lotteries, not just Lotto India. You cannot play from a restricted location without using a Virtual Private Network (VPN). This is a way to disguise your online identity, which makes your internet connection safer to potential threats and also changes the location you are browsing from.
