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?

We are comfortable saying is not a scam. GOptions was started with a mission of providing transparency, honesty and integrity to the wild west of binary options trading. 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”

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. 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.

Final Thoughts on GOptions

GOptions offers its services to customers with either very large or very small accounts, and that versatility is definitely a strength. Considering that the deposit and withdrawal minimums are identical, it seems reasonable to say that this is actually done to discourage traders from starting out with too little money. Can you start trading with $100? Sure, but you will have a very hard time becoming profitable while following sound money management principles for a long time that way. It is much better to start out with around $500 if you’re going to have a small account. (Learn how to manage your bankroll responsibly here)

Usually a broker that sets identical minimums is looking for easy pickings (irresponsible new traders who open accounts and then lose money on their first trades, and never get it back), but the excellent accounts available to customers who make larger deposits make us think that GOptions is simply encouraging customers to trade once they have more money to invest. If you have a lot of money to invest, then check out their higher account tiers. If not, then consider opening up a smaller account with $250 or more and trading conservatively until you can move up to a higher account tier.

  2. 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

  3. 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.

      call your credit company and dispute the money as fraud , thats how i got my money back

  4. 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.


  5. Alex says:

    I was told to it would be wise to enter with a higher amount so I could receive a demo version etc. Then I get a call from a “trainer” who was trying to push me into investing $5,000 so I could truly see success. This turned me off right away. I then wasn’t as impressed with the website as I thought I would be, this is why you “take a car for a spin before you purchase it right?”, so I decided to wait until a group I was waiting for to start called ” DS OPTIONS” so I could train with them with binary options (since I’ve worked with them in the past and I trust them more), so I decided to try and take my full deposit back. The company cancelled my request on the site and told me I should take some trades to avoid high fees.

    I have traded in the past with other platforms, and yes I had to make a deposit to access the service; but that company provided me the full funds the same day, no fees and never said I had to make a trade. In the end GOPTIONS charged me .12% + 10 fee to remove my funds. I only chose them because DS Options said there students would be using them or another international broker and that broker doesn’t accept U.S. based individuals.

    So heads up on the withdraw fee’s and them trying to “upsell” you. Honesty a company that provides quality customer service does not need to charge such ridiculous fees, they will never gain a customer back feeling the need for such greed to grab any penny they can. True customer service is you get feedback from the customer, you let them try your product without a cost ( because your so confident in your product you know they will be satisfied) and you have such strong faith in your product that even if that customer was to walk away, you know you have others lined up that you don’t have to have that individuals service. If the customer is not trying to extort you and has a simple honest reasonable request your primary goal should be to keep them with a smile. So for me GOPTIONS, seek caution folks.

    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.

    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!

  8. 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!

  9. 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?

  10. Darryl says:

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

  11. 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!!

  12. 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!!!

  14. 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.

    David G.
