Using Lottery Concierge Services to Win International Jackpots
The way that players can take part in lotteries has evolved over the years to make it possible to enter games based in other countries. In the past, it may have been that you fancied playing an international lottery with a huge jackpot but could not take part without living in, or at least visiting, the location where the game was hosted. Now, concierge services provide lottery players from around the world with the opportunity to win huge prizes on various games like Powerball, Mega Millions and more.
It is an increasingly popular approach with players around the globe, and in 2015 a participant from Iraq turned his dreams into reality when he scooped a magnificent jackpot. The man from Baghdad entered the Oregon Megabucks draw on 24th August thanks to a concierge service called theLotter and was the sole winner of a top prize worth $6.4 million.
He was allowed to remain anonymous by the Oregon Lottery to ensure the safety of his family and was referred to only as M.M. when he came to the US to claim his fantastic prize in early December 2015. The lucky player opted to take an annuity instead of a lump-sum payout, and will receive his winnings as a series of yearly instalments, each worth $256,000 before taxes.
M.M. is able to enjoy his winnings in full because lottery concierge services do not take commission from prizes, and he thanked theLotter for the professional and trustworthy service they provided after being presented with his cheque at the Oregon Lottery headquarters.
How It Works
theLotter works by sending locally-based agents out to buy tickets, which are then kept safe while scanned copies are sent back to players as proof of purchase. This means that you can play from wherever you are in the world and let the concierge service do the hard work. After the draw, the tickets are checked and smaller wins are paid automatically into players’ accounts, while bigger winners like M.M. are guided through every step of the claims process, from discovering their good luck.
The Iraqi player found out about his success after being contacted by a customer support agent from the lottery concierge service, and was then flown to Oregon as soon as he had received a visa. Once in the USA, he was presented with his actual ticket and allowed to stake his own claim in person, with Lotter representatives on hand to assist at every stage.
Since 2002, theLotter has helped more than 1.7 million players around the world win prizes amounting to over US$35 million. M.M.’s incredible success with the Oregon Megabucks lottery set a new record for the service’s biggest-ever winner.
You can get involved in a wide range of international games regardless of your geographical location, including Powerball, Mega Millions or EuroMillions, which offer some of the largest jackpots on the planet. Visit the Lotto Tickets page to select your favourite game.
