Lottery Winners - Online Ticket & Betting Services
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 via online lottery concierge or betting services. You can now try to win Powerball or Mega Millions without even visiting the US, or enjoy a European lottery from the other side of the world. Take a look at the Tickets page to find out more.
Lottery concierge services, which buy official tickets on behalf of customers, are an increasingly popular approach with players around the globe, and in recent years there have been a host of big winners.
A participant from Baghdad in Iraq entered an Oregon Megabucks draw in August 2015 and won a top prize worth $6.4 million after playing through theLotter. The company scans copies of tickets and sends them to players as proof of purchase. Smaller wins are paid into your online account automatically, while big winners, like the man from Iraq, are guided through the process so they can claim their prizes in person. After gaining a visa, the lucky player, who was allowed to remain anonymous to ensure his safety in his home country, visited Oregon to pick up his award.
The site can boast multiple $1 million US Powerball winners from as far afield as El Salvador, Canada and Australia. In addition, a Panamanian woman won a $30 million jackpot after participating in Florida Lotto through theLotter in July 2017. 60-year-old Aura Dominguez Canto, who chose to take the cash option of $20.9 million, decided to sign up for the online lottery concierge service after reading an article about Britain’s youngest lottery millionaire, Jane Park.
WinTrillions is one of the few concierge services that allows players located in the US to buy American lottery tickets online. Working in a similar way to theLotter, players from across the globe can buy subscriptions to a host of major lotteries, with the service sending local agents to buy the tickets on the behalf of the customer.
A 42-year-old American citizen called Katie recently won $250,000 on a Mega Millions ticket played through WinTrillions, as did another US player, David L. Australian Brent Locke claimed a $25,000 Powerball prize on the site too.
As an alternative to using concierge services, fans can also bet on the outcome of international lotteries by using sites such as Jackpot.com. Here, you are placing a wager on the result of a draw rather than buying a ticket or having a ticket purchased on your behalf. The process is very similar and you can win all the same prizes as players who buy tickets.
Jackpot.com allows players to take part in all the top world lottery games, such as EuroMillions and Powerball, and has produced lots of big winners. Valentin Z, a welder from Enfield, landed a huge €248,000 after matching six of the seven EuroMillions numbers drawn on 21st March 2017. He had registered for the site just weeks earlier, and said the result would be ‘completely life-changing for him and his family’.
