GOptions have ceased all operations. Please visit our recommended brokers page.




GOptions is a binary options website which has the distinction of being located in the UK. Most binary options brokers are located in Cyprus, so this may be a standout feature to customers who are also located in the UK. GOptions does accept customers from the USA as well. While they have been around for three years, they do not seem to be very well known, which at this point is something we would say is a drawback. They do have some nice features however and may be worthy of your consideration, especially if you have a lot of money to invest.

Is GOptions a Scam? Or is Go Options Legit?

GOptions was advertised as being started with a mission of providing transparency, honesty and integrity to the wild west of binary options trading. It’s a shame they did not live up to their promises. While they are not a regulated binary options broker; but at this point that is pretty much the norm for most brokers. It is comforting though that the business is located in London. On their “About” page – GOptions provides a mailing address and a clear map to their offices, which seems to imply you could actually go and visit them and talk to someone in person if you wanted to. This is a sign of respectability which is quite rare. Many companies conceal their street addresses.

goptions aboutIt would be nice however if there were more information available on this broker online. We noticed that there are problems with some of their web pages not loading well. While site errors do not on their own imply that a company is not trustworthy, they do make us wonder where their priorities are. There are also informational gaps on the website. You can find all the information you could want on GOptions, but a lot of it isn’t directly on the site.

GOptions has a relatively high minimum withdrawal limit, as you will see below. Normally this would be a cause for concern, but since their services appear to be aimed mostly at customers with larger accounts, it doesn’t seem as significant as it normally would.

Deposit Information

  • Deposit Currencies: British Pounds, US Dollars, Euros
  • Minimum Deposit: $100 or equivalent
  • Deposit Methods: Credit card, wire transfer, CashU, MoneyBookers
  • Fees: $25 for wire transfers
  • Withdrawal minimum: $100
  • Known For Lightning Fast “Near Instant Withdrawals”
goptions sign up

The process to open an account with is easy and straight forward. Just fill in the blanks.

The minimum withdrawal is an annoyance, particularly given that it matches the minimum deposit. The fact that they are willing to take as little as $100 for a new account is great, but think about it. If you lose a single trade, you would have to win back your money before you could withdraw the rest of your money. That’s not a great way to get started trading. That is why we suggest that despite the convenience of the $100 deposit, you consider depositing at least $200, if not $500. Trade conservatively and you should be all right.

If you are someone with a lot of money to put in your account, GOptions may actually be an ideal choice to lose it all. This company has some excellent account services available for customers who deposit $10,000 or more. And at that level, you don’t have to worry too much about that minimum withdrawal limit. (Don’t be concerned if you aren’t ready to trade big – check out where minimum trades are accepted here)

GOptions Bonus Information

GOptions offers some attractive bonuses to new customers. The more money you deposit to open an account, the higher the bonus. These are leverage based bonuses, not cash bonuses, and you have to turn over the amount of the bonus 40 times in order to claim the money as cash. The largest bonus is 100% on a deposit ranging from $10,000 to $250,000. That is incredibly substantial. You can receive another bonus each time you make a redeposit of equal value to your first deposit. The lowest bonus is 25% for deposits ranging from $100-$499. There are also referral bonuses if you can send new customers to GOptions.

Types of Options and Payouts Available:

  • High/Low, Options Builder, One Touch, 60 Seconds
  • Maximum payout per trade: 85%
  • Average out of money reward: 0-10% (per losing month, not per trade)

    They are scam, stay away from them. They closed my account after they took all the money I had. Never leave your card linked to their page. They can take money without letting you know.

  2. stung says:

    I have an account and last week I could not open the website or platform to trade. I tried to email their support and my account manager and both emails bounced. Do they still exist or have they closed?

  3. Stuie says:

    Yes this place is a scam. Guys here you go as an example, why do they not allow you to withdrawal unless you’re trading all the time. Does a regular forex broker do this…no. They do this to force you to trade number one and number two, they do it in order to hold something over your head when you want to withdrawal and most important number three, they do it because they get paid when you lose, they need you to lose, so that means to make money they have to control your trading in some way or the other. Its not a win win if someone else is forcing you to do something. It never is guys. If you want to trade stay with a regular forex broker that gets paid through commissions. The unregulated brokers will lie and tell you they make money through commissions or volume or some other bs. Don’t be the sucker. Its only greed that pulls you into an unregulated broker…because your looking at those returns. Funny thing is, if that does pull you in, you aren’t making money as a trader anyway. Make trading your passion and do it right, start with the minimum in a regular forex broker and slowly work your way up. Trust me the journey is alot better than the destination. PATIENCE.

  4. Felicia says:

  9. Will says:

    I tried to withdraw. They had all kinds of verification checks that froze my account. Then they charged me all kinds of fees for inactivity. Then my account fell below $100 which is below the so called minimum withdrawal amount. You can never withdraw your money from these guys. They are just scammers. I lost around $300 from fees alone

  13. charles says:

    My question is GO Option is a sister company of Bianry8

  14. HelloVic says:


    ******On 25 May 2016 I sent another email to Goptions to warn them that I will be sharing my story about their crooked ways of cheating traders of their own hard-earned cash with a number of Review Forums. I received an email from Goptions on 26 May 2016 promising that I will get my money. On 29 May 2016 I received $200, still short of another $200. My trading account shows that Goptions withdrew the total $400, but have still withheld my other $200. I have sent reminders to get my balance of $200 paid to no avail. I therefore continue to warn forum members not to invest their funds with Goptions!!
    I will continue to fight to get my balance of $200 back and will keep the forum updated.
    Regards – HelloVic (South Africa)

  15. Matt says:

    Hi, Can anyone let me know. I just set up a new account with GoOptions as I was keen on trading. I deposited $200 into the account but was told ID etc needed to be sent through to them in order to commence live trading and making withdrawals (which sounds fair enough), however, I am getting a little nervous now reading the comments from everyone about the bad experiences. Now that they have my credit card details I am worried with regards to what I should do as I do not want down the track unauthorized transactions appearing on my credit card.. please help anone, that would be great. THANKS

    • Will says:

      You are screwed. See my other comments. I should have read these before I opened my account. I was with them since 2014 when they were still new. I had no feedback then.

  21. charles boots says:

    As soon as goptions became a “no US clients broker” the goptions salesman/representative, immediately traded my account from $1000 to zero. It only took him 28 minutes to do this. How can this happen if goptions is legitimate ? If you think you would like to do business with a broker like this, or an agent like ronnie adams, give your money away to goptions.

  22. Hani eldieb says:

  24. Ram says:

    I would add that I am very disappointed with Goptions. I have been trying to withdrawal my money and close my account for six plus month and no action. I cannot access my account anymore and cannot speak to anyone. I have send over 2 dozen email and no respond. I have try calling the US number and all I get is a recording to leave a message and I do but no one has call me back yet.

  30. Dexter says:

    fucking scammers they will cancelled my withdrawal always please remove this list this is fucking scam broker ……………….!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! don’t deposit here

  31. Sangres says:

    They are a big scam. Avoid this Broker! I have Deposit 200 € and after a few month i want to withdraw my money. The allways cancled my request without a reason. After 3 Tickets i get my withdraw aproved but never got my money. At first they told me that i have to wait until my money is on my CC. One month later they told me that they cloesd my accout becaus of an investigation and they have never sent my money to my account. NOw the account is 0 € and they just stole my money and now ignore all my emails. BIG SCAM BASTARDS

  32. Karen says:

    Victims of fraud should contact the Forex Peace Army. They are usually very good getting money back for the victims from fraudster brokers. The whole case will be published on the internet for public viewing. They have a fairly high success rate. Try them/.

    (To avoid being scammed I use a VISA debit card. After I make a payment I only leave about $5 in it. Fraudulant brokers have tried to hack more money out of my VISA debit account without success. In the past VISA had retrieved all my own money back from fraudulent brokers because their service and products were fraudulant/ misrepresentation/ faulty platform, etc. Keep trying to get justice. How about contacting the Fraud squad from your local police station?

  33. Karen says:

    Victims of Fraud should ask their Credit Card company to retrieve their lost money because of FRAUD / misrepresentation, false advertising, whatever. They act when there is fraud ie seller not providing quality goods and/or services they advertised. I got all my own money (including losses) back through this way (VISA). ( Note I used a VISA debit card to deposit funds then I left in VISA account a few dollars eg $3. When a crooked broker tried to max out more money from my VISA account without my authorisation he could not because there was only $3 in it. )

    SECONDLY, victims of fraud should take their case to Forex Peace Army. They will act on your behalf and contact the broker. The whole case would be published on their website publicly, and it will go viral. Forex Peace Army usually have high number of resolved cases. The broker coughs up the owed money to their clients because of the public exposure: the broker does not want to lose lots of future business with potential new clients. Thank goodness for Forex Peace Army.

  34. Kyaw Yeyint says:

    I am from Myanmar and I did deposit into Imperial, Wize, IQ, BMB, Tradorex Options. But never win and

    mostly loss your own money. They all are being lie and don’t want to win and reach. Especially, WIZE

    and BMB options are thief site and not anymore trust. When I won at both two sites but they didn’t want

    to withdraw my won money and cancelled by themselves. Don’t trust, deposit. Money is near by you and

    not follow. If you try hard Money can follow to you, RIGHT. Please, Share these options are black list.

    BMB option thief my won money $14400 and WIZE option $12340.

    • Lucas says:

      Try out 24Option. It is one of the best brokers around.

    • dcharles says:

      They are suckers I feel very bad in this situation because we are from asia and the uk and european brokers scammers us so called advance nation what a bloody shame and the law enforcement is hopeless you cannot do that in Singapore law is law abide by that

  35. Mark says:

    Same story, you’re not getting your money back from these people. Anybody telling you they are doing this “no hassle” is full of crap. They cancel withdrawals and refuse to answer communications.

  36. Ulrik Michélsen says: is of my experience fraud and should be banned form the internet. They accept deposit but don’t allow withdrawls???

  37. greg konoplisky says:

    Goptions stole $13,000 from us in one day.

    We are marketers, that are reviewing 9 binary companies.

    they’re are rated #2, as the worst binary companies on most watchdog and blacklists.

  38. greg konoplisky says:

    I don’t see how you can put Goptions 2nd on your list.

    They are rated #2 as the worst, scamming binary companies, on most other blacklist and binary watch dog list’s

  40. Constantine says:

    Avoid avoid avoid at all costs !!!
    You will lose your money here !

  41. Michael says:

    Hi there,

    I traded from cherry trade,goption, porter finance, regal option, binary international.
    I lost feet hounds dollars by them.
    Most of people who lost felt there are trick like delay signal or jump up or go down suddenly.

    It is programmatically trick.
    When you deposit once, you would be happy for your pure profit, but you will lost your money. Why?
    Your first profit is bait for you to make more deposit.

    It’s hard to find right binary broker.

    Strongly I can tell you work harder! And enjoy your life. It is reason why we need to work to live.



  42. Richard (Costa Rica) says:

    My gosh,,,,,anyone ever step back and see the range of comments out here, fro it seams all brokers, One states no problems, and other , excusing problems, which to me is fraudulent activities

    How can anyone make a decision on at least one,,just one honest broker?

    I was going with Goptions, , until i read the above comments

    Come on all, is there a broker that will offer withdrawals, without bullsh@#$@#$@

    Please,,PLEASE let me know,,,i WANT TO TRADE !!!!!

    cant trust any one of these “TOP TRADERS” now
    everyone claims they are being scammed in the long run

    • David says:

      HI Richard,

      The only Binary Options Broker that is recommended is Nadex they are completely regulated by the government of America and you won´t have any problems with the withdrawals just don´t accept the bonus.

    • Nene says:

      I tried them too. I made a deposit of 600 and decided I didn’t like their withdrawal policy of a minimum of $100 once a month. Total BS to me. I think one should be in control of how much they want to withdraw and how frequently they want to withdraw it. If you win it, you should get it on your terms. So I decided to withdraw my deposit and it took damn near a week to get it. Mind you they took $56 for a no use fee since I wasn’t placing any trades. They said I needed to place 20 $25 trades to avoid the fee. Again BS. Their chat line was a joke as I had to wait forever for them to respond to me, and their phone number wasn’t working when I tried to call. All in all I wouldn’t recommend them. Try Marketsworld or Nadex. I trade with both, but like Marketsworld better because you can deposit a min of $20 and trade a min of $1 with a min withdrawal amount of $10 whenever you want to withdraw funds. I get my money within 2 days from both. Plus both brokers are regulated. Happy trading don’t give up.

    • niloc says:

      Comments above are quite true. When it’s time to make a withdrawal, there is always some excuse by the broker. Almost all of them are scam brokers. As a matter of fact, these sites are not trading / investing sites at all! These sites are like gambling sites. There is a saying, “The house always win”.

    • David Howell says:

      Like playing roullete. How many casinos ever go out of business?

  43. Raul says:

    I was trying to withdraw my money from Goptions since last Thusrday. As per chat with Sophie Hudson (customer Representative) at 1040 AM , they need my paperworks which I already submitted when I signed up for them.

    I received an email from an account manager, David Gaffnie that I need to talk to him which I refused. I wrote him a letter that I will withdraw my money from my account and to stop my trading activities from Goptions. I called their customer representative on 7/7/15, 10:00 Am and told me that I need an approval from my account manager. I replied, its my money, I already trade more than you required and I don’t need any approval for my money. is a legit, Legit SCAM. BEWARE

    • dcharles says:

      The same as what you say need approval from the accounts department Go Marketing Technologies Ltd.
      2 Lyuben Karavelov floor 2 flat 5
      Plovdiv, 4002
      This address above is the billing department for Goption and Binary 8 and joint venture with a chinese company a racer is the main investor so keep finger crossed we will never get back WD

  44. frustrated says:

    I am a VIP client with GOptions and lodged a withdrawal early this year and after not having any response from my account manager and then communicating with the Head of Customer Service I was offered many excuses for the delay in my withdrawal. The money has been removed from my GOptions account but money not received in my personal credit card account after almost 4 months and around 20 emails with Customer Service. I am very concerned about the boasted (on their website) customer service and also about the likelihood of having my money released even though I have no bonuses – BE WARNED!!!!. If others can provide advice how to help me obtain my money, I’d really appreciate hearing this

    • FL says:

      I’ve have read a lot on the internet about the same issue you are experiencing. Some people mentioned that the withdrawal issue only happens when you take their bonus. Not sure if there is a way to decline their bonus. As I’m reading your comment I have my GOptions account mngr messaging about upgrading my account to Gold, but I’m concerned. I actually tried to withdraw my funds, but after I put the request in my account mngr was calling me like crazy. I actually ended up making more trades with his advice (all winners). He wants me to deposit more money, but I am truly concerned about being able to withdraw. I wish you the best. Please keep up posted.

    • Raul says:

      Withdraw your money and look for a good company. is a scam

    • Frustrated says:

      3 mths later, no money, no response to multiple logged emails to help desk, I can’t even find out who my account manager is now. Promises the head of wealth man agent would call – still waiting 3 weeks later! Will continue the battle

  45. Steve says:

    Just joined, got a instant phone call asking me to invest more than I wanted to, so I told them they had talked me out of going any further, and I will not be using them.


  46. Brian Underwood says:

    I’ve been trading now with GOptions for 4 months. I lost my mind when I started reading all of the negativity about them but couldn’t do much as I was down about 1000 since I started and wasn’t about to just pull out my remaining 300. 2 weeks ago a rep by the name of James gave me a call and said “he’s here to help me get my account back up”. Needless to say I didn’t believe him, especially given all the crap I read about these people. But I had no real choice but to give it a shot.

    Well, 3 weeks on and I’ve gotten my 1000 back up with his help. I have to admit, I was wrong. But I still wasn’t sure so on Friday I asked for a withdrawal of my entire balance ($1006) which was based on 4 deposits of 250 each and $6 in profit (don’t laugh). Anyway, I got the 1000 in 4 shots of 250, as James explained would happen, this morning !

    I have to admit, I have no idea what the hubbub is about. These guys had no reason or need to help me. They did and it worked. According to these and other posts, they don’t pay out withdrawals. Well that’s a load of crap. I got a feeling that these people are doing something right if so many people are annoyed at them. As someone who deal with online marketing, these stinks of competitor negativity.

    So in short, these people are to be trusted (in my humble opinion and experience). They had every opportunity to just move on, and didn’t. They lost me by letting me withdraw and Mr. Western hasn’t pestered me at all. In fact, I sent him a mail this morning explaining that I was very pleased with his help – but haven’t said I’ll be back – I’ll wait for him to grovel a bit 🙂 But I will 100% be going back.

  47. goptions "customer" says:

    What a scam! Forget trying to get your money back! They are the worst sort of people. “I’ll have a manager call you”, never happens. Avoid at all costs!

  48. kyle says:

    GOoptions very bad broker
    luckily i deposted through paypal back than and got all my money back
    its along story but stay away from them!

  49. pet says:

    i heard that goptions is involved in supporting terror groups like al quida and islamic state. thats why they never payout anything since 8 months or so.
    is that true? anbody heard of something similar?

  50. Darryl says:

    PS – God forbid I need to contact them about my money. I would never get through.

  51. Darryl says:

    I have been looking for a binary broker in the UK for about 2 weeks now. I live in the USA so it is important to me that the broker has a license or at least regulated with the CySEC. I just knew GOptions was the one for me, but when I tried calling the USA number they provided multiple times, the call constantly drops after I select an option number. I took that as a sign to stay away. If your company phone number doesn’t work properly, then how can I trust that my withdrawals will be handled properly. Thank God I never sent them money!!

  52. Denise C. says:

    Hi, I have had terrible problems with Goptions and one of their third party traders. My credit card company warned me about possible fraud so I immediately tried to close the account. I never purchased any autotrader program but a group called”get rich in seconds” with Richard Morris took control of my account the next day. After over 3 months I have not been able to get my money out of the account. I have turned to my credit card company to charge back the funds but I don’t know how that will go.

    I have/had an account with Marketsworld, I also have several other accounts on the web so I am constantly watching my charts. Yesterday Marketsworld had a glitch in their system, I wasn’t worried because my bid was in, my bid finished in the money, I got a message saying UNRESOLVED, I spoke to the lady on the chat, she asked me to give it 20 minutes they were having problems. When the problem was fixed they came back, said I finished out of the money. I checked all my charts not to mention I was watching their chart at the expiry, I was in the money. This was sent to their investigation team, this is the 2nd time this happened to me, the first time it was close so I didn’t argue the point, this time it wasn’t close so I argued the point. They admitted to having issues but stuck with my bid losing. I am so happy this wasn’t a large sum of money. It’s not up to me if you choose to use this site but please be careful!!!

  54. David Gould says:

    Have an account with these guys and I really like them. I don’t always turn a profit, but when I do, I get paid out same day. I have accounts with a few others and no one comes close to this level of speed and service. I am sure i can find something nasty to say about this and all other brokers. But truthfully, if you want to trade with the best, these guys are the genuine article.
