There are daily lotteries internationally, but 7Lottos.com does give it a new twist. They are an online lottery service that sets up a group play packaging some of the big and smaller international lotteries. It’s a hilarious concept. The only problem is finding all the details on how it all works. The other issue is the fact that I’m still not sure whether they actually buy lottery tickets or simply this is a betting site where they insure against winnings. Let me explain.
Games at 7Lottos
7Lottos.com offers seven lotteries including US Mega Millions, EuroMillions, UK National Lottery, France’s Loto, Italy’s SuperEnalotto, German Lotto 6aus49 and Austria’s Österreichischen Lotterien. Picking your tickets (or use quick pick) is pretty straightforward. It’s the next step that gets a little sticky. There are all kinds of choices to unclick or click depending on whether you want to play multiple games, ongoing weekly and the group play for all seven lotteries offered. Make sure you are sure what you are committing to.
7Lottos.com’s Group Play
The system defaults all over the place with a box clicked for the group play. This means you are playing all seven lotteries which covers every day of the week. Players can buy into groups of 49 tickets, 105 tickets or 245 tickets per week. The value is pretty good, but – yes the big but – there is nowhere on their site that actually stipulates how many shares are in each group. It was through live chat that we were able to find out each of the groups is 100 shares. The live chat operator also said that if not all the shares are purchased 7Lottos buys the rest and “uses the ticket number or potential winnings on extra offers for our customers”. Okay, I find that hard to believe.
Winning and 7 Lottos
Winnings under €2,500 will be credited to your account seven days after they receive the money. Winnings between €2,501 to €1 million will be credited within 15 days of their receipt of the money. Winnings over € 1 million will be credited 30 days after they get the money. They underline that 7Lottos will not pay any interest on the winnings. They also talk about a ‘minimum withdrawal limit’ which may or may not apply to you. There is no information on what this is and it’s up to the player to verify the amount that applies.
That was one of the issues that the team had over and over again going through this site. There is so much information that is missing and the only way to find out is to either open an account (which means buying tickets) or spend a heap of time writing emails or on live chat. I have problems with that – I mean the info should be readily available, officially in writing. They do have live chat (though looks like business hours), an online form, email address and snail mail address in Copenhagen.
Who is 7Lottos.com?
This is a brand name of Winners World Wide Limited that is registered in Guernsey and yes has a principal business address there. So, what’s with the Copenhagen snail mail address? Their site is available in both Swedish and English just to add to the confusion.
The Bottom Line
At first glance, the idea of having a group play for a lottery every day of the week seemed like fun. It was getting into the nitty gritty details, or lack thereof, that definitely got us wondering just how real these guys are.

Is it Betting of Tickets?
These folks get a thumbs down! Even after the team dug through the terms and conditions, how it works and the FAQs, we’re still not sure whether they actually buy lottery tickets or this is simply a betting site!
