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.

  • Official Website:
  • Headquarters: London, United Kingdom
  • Phone Number: +44 203 608 1331
  • USA Traders Allowed Not Allowed – SpotOption regulated all white labels must not accept US traders 9/14/15
  • Trading Platform: SpotOption

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.

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)

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.

Victims of Fraud should ask their Credit Card company to retrieve their lost money because of FRAUD / misrepresentation, false advertising, whatever.

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.

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

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”.

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… Read more »

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 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.

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.… Read more »

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.

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.
