Crypto Millions Lotto Review
What is the big difference between playing a lottery officially or through a website that uses the results? That was the first question when I opened up the site at CryptoMillionsLotto.com. They use the results of the German National Lottery 6 Aus 49 for their bi-weekly draws. Add to this; they do it in Bitcoin. It doesn’t get much more anonymous in playing and winning. So how does this work?
The Game at CryptoMillionsLotto.com
Crypto Millions Lotto uses the results from bi-weekly German National Lottery played Wednesday and Saturday. Players chose six numbers from 1 to 49, plus a bonus number between 0 and 9. The jackpot (pick all six numbers plus the bonus number) starts at the US $30 million and rolls over 13 times until it’s won. If someone wins with either Crypto Millions Lotto or the actual German National Lottery, it resets to the beginning. The 2nd tier is also paid in US dollars with seven further tiers down to picking 2 numbers plus the bonus ball paid in bitcoin. It costs ₿0.0005 per ticket line. Players can choose 10 ticket lines per play, plus as many plays as they want.
Players can also opt to play “Instant Wins” and “Slots.” On the Instant Wins, you can try a game for free to see how it works. Players can win up to ₿3.0. There is also a free first ticket on registering with CryptoMillionsLotto.com. Their “Refer a Friend” program earns you 5% on every lottery ticket your friend buys. Plus US$ 2.5 if your friend wins the jackpot.
Signing Up to Play
Players have to create an account and deposit some bitcoin. There is a link to acquire bitcoin if you haven’t done this yet. There are also three different ways to interface with your Bitcoin wallet.
Crypto Millions Lotto and Winnings
Winnings are paid directly into your account, though the jackpot and 2nd tier prize won’t be available until CryptoMillionsLotto.com receives the money from their insurers – usually about 30 days. Plus, you’ll have to provide a photo ID and proof of address. These winning will be paid in the US or any other currency you designate. All other winnings are paid in Bitcoin. Any amount less than ₿5.0000 can be withdrawn to your Bitcoin wallet. If it is that amount of over, you need to complete a KYC/AML. KYC is “Know Your Customer” and involves providing documents to confirm your identity. It’s one part of the bigger process of AML – “Anti-Money Laundering which includes other risk evaluations and assessments.
Who Can Play?
Players at Crypto Millions Lotto must be 18 years or older depending on where you reside and their rules. People from Curaçao, Netherlands Antilles, the Netherlands, UK, and the US can’t play here – plus Belgium, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, Singapore, and South Africa. Oh, and you can’t play if you work for the company or are related to someone who does. Their website operates in six languages: English, Korean, Japanese, Portuguese, Russian, and Spanish.
Weird – Linking to Wolverhampton Wanderers Football Club
According to the CryptoMillionsLotto.com site, they are the “official online lottery partner” to the Wolves, and yes, there was a public announcement on this. But, on the Wolves site, there is a link to a different Bitcoin company. Plus, there is nothing on the Wolves site that says this – again, a different bitcoin company link is provided there.
Who Are They?
CryptoMillionsLotto.com is operated under a Curaçao eGaming license owned by a company in Curaçao, which is a subsidiary of a UK company. There are a snail mail and email address. They can take a while to answer any emails. There is a UK telephone number.
The Bottom Line at CryptoMillionsLotto.com
I get that I can win, and no one is going to know – I simply walk away with that great jackpot. At the same time, there seem to be a lot of grey areas on who these folks are, and I still have issues with playing in Bitcoin versus good ole dollars. Add to that; there is only one lottery game here. Most of the time, I like to play a variety of games, especially when we’re talking some of those jackpots with US Powerball and Euro Millions.
Free First Ticket
Winnings Anonymous through Bitcoin
Only One Lottery Game
Jackpot Winnings Delayed by 30 Days
The UK, US, and Others Can’t Play
I think I’ll stick to the true and proven online lottery web sites which work in regular currencies and offer more lotteries. I think I’d have to be pretty confident about who I’m dealing with to start playing with Bitcoin.
