You might initially get confused at Lottery.co.uk’s site checking out the different tabs and buttons unless you understand the concept of affiliates. This an online lottery service provider that also offers scratch cards, bingo, slots, and other casino games. The hardest thing is to keep on track as there is so much going on. But let’s look at their lotteries first.
Let’s Talk Lotteries at Lottery.co.uk
Lottery.co.uk doesn’t provide online lottery services but links players to two different sites. There are two buttons underneath Mega Millions and UK Lottery that say UK Residents and Non-UK Residents. The UK Resident button takes players to a site called national-lottery.co.uk which is an official site owned by Camelot. Camelot operates the UK National Lottery. Click on the Non-UK Resident button, and it takes players to another online lottery provider called TheLotter.com. This means that Lottery.co.uk is an affiliate and gets a percentage of any of the fees that a player pays at TheLotter.com. All the international lotteries (meaning non-UK) link to this online lottery provider.
Lottery.co.uk and Lottery Games
Though they highlight the UK National Lottery and EuroMillions, they do think too many of the other international lottery games like US Powerball and Mega Millions. Australia’s OZ Lotto and Spain’s El Gordo. They also offer a bunch of other Lottery Games some of which win money and some simply that are for fun.
Slots, Bingo, and Casino Games
Click on any of the different tabs and a variety of game are available at Lottery.co.uk – it gets darn right confusing. Some of them are simply for fun, and some of them are opportunities to win money. This includes a variety of apps that can be played on your mobile phone or computer. Most of them offer a 100% matched deposit bonus of up to £100.
Things That Made Me Chuckle
Under their ‘About Us’ page, Lottery.co.uk rambles on about ‘responsible gambling’ yet their site offers the combination of both playing lotteries and play slots without leaving the safety and comfort of your home. Some of the names of the different games offered are hilarious, and again, it was very distracting for actually getting to the bottom line.
Who Actually is Lottery.co.uk
Lottery.co.uk, also know as The Lottery Company, is owned by Take That Ltd. which they say is a private company and is not connected with Camelot plc. Take That Ltd. has its offices and registration in the UK. Each of the affiliates that link from Lottery.co.uk has their own page that details who they are.
Lottery.co.uk’s Customer Support
Don’t look for Live Chat here. Click on ‘Contact Us’ on their lottery page, and their contact is Facebook including don’t forget to ‘like us.’ There are different contact details for different parts of the games they offer, so it’s important to make sure you’re on the right contact page for what you want to ask. This includes some free phone numbers for UK residents. For non-UK residents, that includes asking your questions directly to TheLotter.com.
Lottery.co.uk is experiencing the same as all other official lottery companies online with the usual emails regarding people winning large sums of money and then being required to pay the taxes up front before receiving it.
The site is packed with too much irrelevant information in our opinion. It lacks clarity and cohesion in many sectors of the site, and the visitor is taken through many independent sites without knowing what is really happening. Our team had a good chuckle when they began debating the terms and conditions and realized each was talking about a different link they’d gone to through Lottery.co.uk.
The Bottom Line – Lottery.co.uk
Our team is not too keen on Lottery.co.uk as they’d rather know who they are dealing with. It didn’t seem to matter what and where they clicked on, it involved a change in jurisdiction. This becomes a larger issue when talking about personal details and credit card information.

Where Am I Playing
Whose Terms & Conditions Apply
There is a lot of cleaner and more comfortable places to play lotteries online that don’t mix-up lotteries, casinos, slots, and bingo. There is nothing that suggests a scam here. They just make the whole process confusing as the rules and regulations change depending on which link you use! Definitely, a thumbs down on user-friendliness.
