At first glance, it’s hard to work through the information on the 22lottery.com site. It’s overly colorful with no master menu. It looks like it offers a $22 million jackpot with daily prizes of $500 – and all this for free. But it’s not until you get into the small print that you find out that the big jackpot isn’t for 22 years.
How Does 22Lottery Work
Subscribers select five numbers between 1 and 30, provide their email address and other personal details. Upon clicking on the ‘accept the conditions,’ you agree to receive promotions material from 22Lottery.com as well as from third party affiliates. The site also has a special bonus offers button, but it doesn’t work.
Winning at 22Lottery.com
Digging deeper, it’s only when you click on the ‘Rules’ tab that players realize that they will be participating in a sweepstake that takes place on the 31st of December 2032. This means you would need to wait almost 20 years to find out if you have won the grand prize! I wonder if these guys will still be in business.
We were unable to find any complaints concerning 22Lottery.com and don’t find that surprising. It’s hard to complain about something that doesn’t cost anything. At the same time, it is important to note that players are signing up to receive promotional material and other spam. Players provide their email address and other personal details which opens the window to potential identity theft and receiving thousands and thousands of emails from people advertising anything and everything.
So Who is 22Lottery?
22Lottery.com was inaugurated online in 2008. It is owned by NAME.COM LLC based in Cyprus. The only way to contact these guys is to submit their online form. They say they will get back to you within 24 to 48 hours. The Help menu is simply a list of FAQs.
22lottery.com has links to five languages (French, German, Italian, British, and USA) though I can’t quite figure out why they have two English language pages. I could see no difference in the information provided on the two different links.
Is 22Lottery.com For Real?
This is basically a promotional site to get email addresses for promotional material. Besides the fact the jackpot for $22 million isn’t going to be drawn until 2032, there doesn’t appear to be any winners of the $500 daily prize.
22Lottery.com’s name is deceiving in itself. At first glance, you would think that the site offers 22 lotteries worldwide (Irish Lotto, the National Lottery of Israel or Oz Lotto for example), but later find out that it is only one lottery being played. Your entry is used for both the daily and main draw (yup – the one in 2032). 22Lottery.com does not offer information regarding how numbers are drawn (based on their own draw or on other international draws held across the world) but does mention that the winners will be determined on the last day of each month. This would mean that, although technically there would be 30 or 31 draws per month (presumably) the winners will only be notified at the end of the month. This makes a daily draw useless!
The Bottom Line of 22Lottery.com
If you’re willing to wait for 20 years to find out if you win and you don’t mind having your Inbox flooded with spam and other promotion material, then go ahead and play. I’m not going to. Without some sort of proof that there is actually daily winners, I don’t think this site is to be trusted. The big question is though, do you believe this site will still be around 20 years from now? My guess is definitely not!

We give this a thumbs down! I just don’t see any money here!
