January 2016: LottryMaster ( Lotto Yard) are having an increase of withdrawal complaints. Lotto Exposed doesn’t recommends dealing with companies who have withdrawal issues.
LotteryMaster.com Means Expensive Fees!
LotteryMaster.com doesn’t claim to be anything more than an agent to purchase lottery tickets worldwide on your behalf. The site is very straightforward and very easy to find information. Registration is quick and easy and simply requires your name, email address and phone number. It also provides a ‘Terms and Conditions’ which clearly sets out the legal responsibilities of both them and you, the user.

How Does LotteryMaster Work
LotteryMaster.com has agents all over the world to buy your lottery ticket for you. Simply pick the game you want to play, chose your numbers, they purchase your ticket, scan it for you and send. If you win, they collect your money and place it into your Lottery Master Account. You receive an SMS and email notice of your winnings. If you win a jackpot (the big one), they will arrange to give you the winning ticket so you can personally (and locally) claim your first prize.
To access the game you want to play at LotteryMaster.com, click on “Play” at the top of the screen and the window opens up listing all the current games available, the Jackpot amount up for grabs and a countdown clock for the next draw. You can play SuperEnalotto (Italy), EuroMillions (Euro), EuroMillions (UK), Mega Millions (US), UK National Lottery (UK), PowerBall (US), New York Lottery (US), La Primitiva (Spain), EuroJackpot (Euro), El Gordo, La Primitiva (Spain) and Loteria Nacional (Spain). Hey, guess they don’t have any agents in Canada eh. They also seem to offer some special seasonal draws.
Now here is where they start to lose me. LotteryMaster.com officially charge over 200% for the fee for providing the service. Sorry, for online lotteries – that’s expensive. They do provide a discount when you get to actually purchasing your tickets, but why bother. Why not simply make that the price (and it is still expensive).
Getting Your Money
LotteryMaster.com says they will transfer your money to your personal account after deducting the corresponding fees. The fees are based on your location, not the amount, and run between $2.50 (Europe, Australia & South America) to $10.00 (Canada & Asia) to $50.00 (Central America, Africa and the USA). They say it takes 3 to 10 working days to get your money. There is also something about a 5% bonus of the transferred amount which you can accumulate to use to play lottery games but cannot cash out.
Their Lottery Bonus and Lottery Loyalty Club offers 33 VIP points for every USD 1 played to win gifts and their ‘Free Lottery Promotions’ made me a little nervous. LotteryMaster.com offers a special discount for the first 100 tickets purchased that day. When does their day start? I wondered if you have to sit in line watching the clock to click on the appropriate time to get the discount!
Bells and Whistles at LotteryMaster
The support page at LotteryMaster.com has a FAQ list or you can click on to chat. I’m not sure when ‘chat’ is available as they do say ‘when they are offline log on with your User Name and email your question to Customer Support. They also offer a ‘Dictionary’ to learn the latest Lottery Terminology.
Going through a bunch of sites, there are no complaints and for once I think I believe it. It’s a straightforward agency style representative that simply facilitates purchasing lottery tickets. LotteryMaster.com just charge a lot for this service. All the websites that do reviews agreed that these guys are for real and went so far to downgrade them in only one area – their promotions.
The Bottom Line at LotteryMaster.com
LotteryMaster.com seems to be a real site that offers a service for players to play lottery games on site though I struggle with the different fees they charge and their promotions. Everyone’s recommended to read the visitors’ comments below this review, because we’ve got a scary amount of complaints. Our users are categorical – Lottery Master is a SCAM.
Easy to find information
Easy to play
Very clear instructions
Prices are not competitive
$50 service fee for some countries
Our team gives Lotterymaster.com a thumbs down as there are other sites that offer a more consistent and realistic fee for the service of buying tickets for players and not deceive their customers.
