Looking to play in a syndicate? See if LoveMyLotto fits the bill
LoveMyLotto 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.
Each syndicate plays in five different lottery games each week. The only thing that varies is the number of entries into each game and this depends on the syndicate option that is chosen upon joining LoveMyLotto. The games that each syndicate currently plays in are:
UK Lotto – EuroMillions – Millionaire Raffle – Plus 5 – £1 Million Daily Play
LoveMyLotto offers 3 different monthly syndicate packages – Bronze (£12), Silver (£24) and Gold (£36). Each syndicate has 21 members. The following table indicates the number of entries each syndicate package receives on a weekly basis:
|Saturday UK Lotto||2||5||10|
|Wednesday UK Lotto||2||5||10|
|Lotto Plus 5||5||10||15|
|Tuesday Millionaire Raffle||1||2||3|
|Friday Millionaire Raffle||1||2||3|
|£1M Daily Draw||2||4||7|
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?
- 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
- 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
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!
