The Lotter Review

TheLotter.com – worldwide lottery tickets and affiliate program

The Lotter LogoHistorically, lottery players around the world were restricted to playing the state or national lottery game offered by their country of residence. However, this all changed when a number of lottery ticket sales agents entered the market; one of these is The Lotter.

TheLotter entered the lottery marketplace in 2002, operates from 20 regional offices around the world and gives lottery players access to more than 40 of the world’s biggest lottery games. These games can be played via your computer, iPhone or Android device 24/7!

How do I buy a ticket?

You simply choose the lottery game that takes your fancy and then you play with the same rules, the same play options and the same chances to win as you would buying a ticket off line.  You choose your numbers and then one of The Lotter’s regional office managers purchases the ticket on your behalf. They then scan the ticket to your online account, securely store the ticket and then supervise the automatic win collection process from The Lotter’s head office. Once the draw has taken place you will be notified of any winnings via SMS and/or email. If you have any questions, you can always contact The Lotter’s dedicated support team.

LoveMyLotto LogoLoveMyLotto was launched in December 2010 and is a multi-game lottery syndicate system. LoveMyLotto is a UK based company with ‘bricks-and-mortar’ offices which are located in Stratford-Upon-Avon in England — world famous for being the birth place of William Shakespeare. The company is headed by an experienced management team who have a wealth of knowledge in the gaming sector.

Choosing Your Numbers

Players do not have an option to choose their own numbers with LoveMyLotto. Upon joining each player is assigned a unique set of numbers that will be shared with their fellow syndicate members.

Who Can Join?

Lottery players from all over the world can join a LoveMyLotto syndicate. In fact, since LoveMyLotto started operations in 2010, players have joined from more than 90 countries around the world. There are certain countries from where you can not join a syndicate, the most notable being the USA; this is due to their strict online gaming laws.

How to Play?

To get started you simply need to select a syndicate package and then complete the short online registration form. Once your payment has been made by either credit/debit card or Moneybookers, your account details will be emailed to you. You will then be able to log in to your member’s area where you will be able to view your syndicate numbers and winnings etc. You do not have to check your numbers after each draw as this is done automatically on your behalf. Your share of any winnings is posted to your online e-wallet and you can withdraw this money as soon as the £20 payment threshold has been reached.

What Do I Think of LoveMyLotto?

Plus Points:

  • Syndicates play in 5 separate games each week
  • Good value syndicate packages
  • Experienced management team
  • Offer telephone, email and website support
  • Significant site and product developments since launch

Negative Points:

  • Telephone support could be improved
  • Syndicates for specific lottery games should be an option
  • Poor site design compared to the many other sites competing in the lottery arena

Summary

Overall, I find the LoveMyLotto syndicate system fairly basic when compared to the many excellent businesses in the lottery market that you could choose to play with. Although the management team has promised a great deal since the launch in 2010, very little has actually happened in its development. I therefore recommend that you stay away from this company and spend your lottery cash elsewhere. AVOID!

Big Fat Lottos Review

Considering joining a BigFatLottos syndicate? Check out this review first…

BigFatLottos SyndicateBig Fat Lottos is a lottery syndicate company that was formed in 2010. They currently offer syndicates for the UK lotto, EuroMillions, Spanish Superdraws and the Italian Superenalotto. There is also a multi-game syndicate called Jackpot Power Play.

UK Lotto Syndicates

Each UK lotto syndicate is made up of 49 members who share 88 weekly entries into the Wednesday and Saturday draws. Because of the way in which the UK syndicates have been set up, one number is always guaranteed in every single draw. This means that each syndicate only needs to match 5 numbers, not the usual 6, to win the jackpot. The cost of joining a UK syndicate is £5 per week.

EuroMillions Syndicates

Each EuroMillions syndicate consists of 110 members who share 55 entries into the Tuesday draw and 55 entries into the Friday draw. Owing to the way in which the Euro syndicates have been designed, every permutation of the Lucky Star numbers is catered for in each draw meaning that each syndicate only needs to match the 5 main numbers to secure the jackpot. Only one number is needed to win a cash prize. The cost of joining a EuroMillions syndicate is £7.50 per week.

Spanish Superdraw Syndicates

The monthly Spanish Superdraws offer incredible prize funds that range from €84 million right up to €2.52 Billion. Each 50 member syndicate shares 10 Décimo Tickets worth €200 in each draw. Each syndicate is guaranteed to win at least 1 cash prize in the Christmas ‘El Gordo’ draw and 3 cash prizes in each of the other 11 draws throughout the year. The cost of joining a Spanish Superdraw syndicate is £20 per draw.

Italian Superenalotto Syndicates

The Superenalotto is Italy’s biggest lottery game with a record jackpot of €177.8 Million. Each 85 member Superenalotto syndicate shares 85 entries into each of the 3 weekly draws. A syndicate needs to match 2 main numbers to win a cash prize. The cost of joining a Superenalotto syndicate is £6 per week.

Jackpot Power Play Syndicates

With Jackpot Power Play Big Fat Lottos has combined 4 massive lottery draws to create a huge “Jackpot Game”. Each 210 member syndicate receives 270 entries into 9 draws each week. Every week each syndicate receives the following draw entries:

•    2 EuroMillions draws – 60 entries
•    2 UK Lotto draws – 60 entries
•    3 SuperEnalotto draws – 90 entries
•    2 Millionaire Raffle draws – 60 entries

The cost of joining a Jackpot Power Play syndicate is £5 per week.

Choosing Your Numbers

With BigFatLottos you haven’t got the option to select your favourite set of numbers as you would if you bought a ticket from your local lottery retailer. However, in the UK lotto, EuroMillions and Superenalotto syndicates you can select a set of numbers from a range of number sets made available to you. The Spanish Superdraws are more of a raffle type affair and each ticket comes with its own specific number printed on it. Therefore choosing your numbers in this draw is not an option. Jackpot Power Play syndicates also do not have a number selection option.

Who Can Join?

Lottery players from most countries can join BigFatLottos.com. If your country is not listed when you register online then you are unable to join. For example, American citizens are unable to join due to strict online gaming regulations in the USA.

How To Play?

You simply choose the syndicate of your choice, proceed through the simple online registration and then make your payment using a credit/debit card or Moneybookers. Your syndicate numbers are automatically checked following each draw and any winnings are paid into your online e-wallet. You can withdraw your winnings at any time and these are paid out by either a cheque or via Moneybookers.

What Do I Think of Big Fat Lottos?

Plus Points:

•    Site is easy to understand and playing options are very clear.
•    Set and forget syndicate play – Everything is done for you.
•    Fully licensed and regulated company.
•    Good number of syndicate options.
•    Customer support available by telephone and email.

Negative Points:

•    Large syndicate sizes meaning low individual payout potential.

Summary

In my opinion this syndicate system is definitely up there with the best available today and should be considered. To find out more visit: Big Fat Lottos

Playing Lottery Online – Things to look out for

A lottery is a popular form of gambling where players pay to participate and winners are determined by chance. In most lotteries online players buy numbered tickets at fixed prices. At a subsequent drawing, the winning numbers are selected at random or are selected using an unpredictable method.

How online lottery works?

Playing lottery online is a growing trend among people trying to get rich by playing numbers. Of course, with an offline lottery you typically only have access to the lottery game offered in your country of residence. However, there are now online lottery services offered by certain companies that give you the opportunity to play in lotteries from around the world. When you register and buy their lottery tickets, you get the scanned image of the tickets mailed to your email box so that you can get a copy for your records.

From where do the results come in online lottery games?

These websites usually have their systems electronically connected to result pages of their websites. So when the official results are published these websites get the information displayed right away. Therefore, the results of the lottery you played online are instantly available to you when they are out. Online lottery is a convenient system as you get notified about the results online. In the event of success, such notice will include details like how much you won and with what numbers. However, these notifications should only be relied on if they come from a well known lottery portal.

Usually, history of the results remains available on the website so that customers can check in anytime and see the latest results and dividends. But the best way to get results as a player is by enabling the automatic notifications feature that these websites offer, then automatically you will come to know how much you have won and earned and when the money was placed in your on-site account.

How to play it safe?

Participation in some of the online lottery games is a great way to play the lottery and have a chance to make some money without having to leave the comfort of your own home. But when it comes to web sites offering lottery games, there are several that are quite questionable and downright suspicious. Before you use your credit card to buy lottery tickets online from any website, here are some things you should know to help you stay safe while you play lottery online:

* If an online lottery website appears to be doubtful, stick to the sites you already know about or the ones that are highly recommended by other participants.

* Be sure to follow all rules and regulations on the website. In many lottery sites, participants must be at least 18 to purchase tickets.

* Once you have entered the site and bought the lottery tickets you needed, be sure to log out of your account, especially if you are using a public computer.

* Always keep your account and password private. Never reveal that information to anyone (especially on the Internet) and choose a password that is difficult for others to guess.

* Unfortunately there is no “Better Business Bureau” for these online lottery sites. But with a little effort, you can determine whether a site is legitimate or not, just by searching the web for reviews of the website. There are also several online forums where participants can share their thoughts with each other and report problems or issues with lottery websites. Due diligence will always go a long way and ensure that you do not lose your money by using a shady and disreputable website.

* Only buy lottery tickets from trusted sites. If you are not familiar with a particular lottery website, do your homework to make sure that it is legitimate. This means read the privacy policies and terms of service of the website and if necessary contact the site directly (via email or toll free phone) to ensure that it is a valid lottery website. Good customer service, privacy policy and terms of service are some of the factors that you can check out to determine the credentials of a website.

Price – go with the affordable

The more tickets you have, the greater are your chances of success. So when you have compared the quality, compare the prices as well. Be sure to compare the standard prices and not the discounted prices which you only get for a limited time period.
Start small until you become familiar with the site.

Once you have made your decision to play the lottery online, it is recommended that you start small. Know the system well before putting any large sum at stake. Know your control panel, notification messages and so on. During this period, call customer support if there is something that you don’t understand.

There are some great lottery ticket sales agents on the internet that are reputable and offer a fantastic service and access to a huge number of global lotteries. Do your homework and make sure that you only select one of the very best ones.
