  1. £5 taken from my account. I never signed up to them, I have never visited their site. I have no idea how they got my bank details because I never give my bank details to anyone. I have reported this as fraud to my bank. They have cancelled my debit card, which I have only used once in the last 3 years on the official National Lottery site, and are going to refund the transaction as fraudulent. This site must have hacked my details from somewhere. I will be checking my accounts very regularly from now on!!

  2. my husband did this, and they still take money at 10£ twice a week.. the bank said no fraud, as it says 1 off payment, which is allowed from the bank!!!
    I have advised him to put the card as lost or stolen..he will get a new one with different number…

  3. Absolutely disgusted with this “company” signed up then cancelled the subscription straight away yet they have still been taking the money. Also completely closed the account and told them to remove my details from the system. Numerous emails sent and still with no luck, contacted my bank today and they informed me the payments have been coming out as one off payments so they can not block them. Just do not know what to do I think I’ll have to report my card as lost and start again hopefully that will put a stop to it

  4. Signed up, entered my details and now they tell me my phone number does not exist and have had to open a fraud investigation with the bank to stop them taking my money every week, apparently I have no account but they can email me and phone me!? Avoid

  5. My wife entered by mistake thinking she was on the national lottery official site, it’s been a nightmare!!! She’s never received any notification of selection, just received a warning from M7S credit card about funds leaving the account.. do not touch it…

  6. You will regret signing up to this, if you have been tempted for the offer of signing up for £1.
    I signed up and paid £1 on 22/4, then £5 on 23/4, £2.50 on 27/4, £1 on 29/4 and 2 payments of £5 each on 30/4. Beware! It’s also not nearly as easy to cancel membership as they claim it is. It’s very easy to get tricked into being parted from your money.

  7. I joined the lotto syndicates for so many weeks, never ever saw any ticket with numbers from 50-59. Any lotto syndicate you participate in invariably would have only numbers ranging from 01-49. That comes across as very suspicious to me. Also on marching two numbers, they issue credit points enough to purchase additional line (the equivalent of a lucky dip if you have individual ticket). However, I checked my last win and found that despite matching 2 numbers, there was no credit posted. Imagine if you won big and then they don’t allocate the win credit to you. Contacted customer services a week back but no reply yet. It is really disingenuous and you may be getting tricked without realizing it. Stay away from them if you know of other genuine syndicates.

  8. I have no idea what it was that I signed for but it was not obvious that I was to pay £5 per week.

    The effect was to be tricked into something that I was unaware of

    00
  9. It’s rubbish take money from your account when you have not given it and difficult to stop so I’m renewing my card to stop the thiefing bastards?

    00
    • Hello did you manage to stop them taking money? They taking twice in a week from my bank account £5 thank you for your help

      00
  10. Don’t bother, probably operates inside the law, but takes advantage of people. I signed up for one thing and they took two lots of money. Customer service no-existence.

    00
  11. Yep, same here, cancelled my account with them but money still goes from account, now going to inform the bank, leeches the lot of them!

    00
  12. Stopped playing with them still taking money out of my account

    00
  13. My account has been closed I haven’t cancelled numerous of msgs sent getting no help

    00
  14. These people have been deducting money monthly from my account without my ever joining. I am therefore reporting these deductions as theft, to the bank, and to the lottery commissioners. DO NOT TAKE ANYTHING TO DO WITH THEM. Not even an inquiry.

    00
  15. Very bad, they are just take the money from your account for nothing, this is a scam company.

    00
  16. Wow, thank God read all the reviews. Sorry to hear that. Most people are not happy. But I won’t be buying or associating with this company in any way.

    00
  17. I tried cancelling by email several times and they still take money out of account.

    00
  18. After my short experience, I will never play again this social lotto. They ask you to subscribe & give your card details. The bad news comes after. Every time they charge you or £5, your card company will treat this as a cash transaction & charge you a min of £3. My visa charged me on £1 spent £3 & again £3 for each £5 transaction. So be very careful & check immediately your visa card on line. After loosing 4 times the £3, I closed the social lotto account immediately

    00
  19. Trying to get my money refunded will let you know how I manage up to now spoken to three live chat people and left numerous messages we will see if it’s genuine or not.

    00
  20. They never give you cash, they just keep giving you points, and the site is always under form of technical problem. Groupon shouldn’t allow these types of sites, an absolute con job.

    00
  21. I have never felt so scammed
    A fortune wheel that never lands on cash! And for only having 1 £0 section so it should be equal chance it nearly always lands on 0… The one time it did pay it didn’t credit my account.
    On lotto I only ever get points or bonus credit… seriously

    00
  22. Don’t go near this company. I agreed to a £1 payment they immediately took £5. I immediately contacted my Debit Card Provider and had a block put on all future payments. I have received an email from my Provider confirming all future payments are stopped. I will still be monitoring my account to ensure these unprincipled thieves don’t get around the block. A lot of hassle for a bit of fun doing the lottery. Stick to official sites.

    00
  23. I’ve been waiting since 11/11/19 for a withdrawal and still nothing, I’ve sent loads of emails, no reply for 2 weeks after telling me it was processed again. Still nothing!

    00
  24. Paid £1 for 10 lines on the euro millions, my numbers have come in wrote my code and it’s saying doesn’t exist! Absolute scam!!!

    00
  25. Bunch of these should be arrested. Stealing money from people bank account in the name of lottery syndicate. Fools should be put behind bars. Avoid lottosocial.com at all cost, they illegals and dodgy

    00
  26. Signed up for £1 one off gamble and have ended up with a continuous bill of £3 plus a £5 gambling charge on my card. This ‘harmless’ bit of a fable is a complete bloodsucking scam. Had to cancel the card used. Avoid at all cost.

    00
  27. Scam should be shutdown ..

    00
  28. I’ve been very poorly in hospital. I must have sign up to it SCAM but didn’t realise they would take a total of over £100 off me. which I have now found out a SCAM. They should be shutdown. It’s a SCAM..

    00
  29. Just taking more money than agreed. How do I cancel?

    00
  30. This company had a huge fine under a previous name for charging for texts without making this clear. Look up the thread on MoneySavingExpert with a link to the tribunal findings.

    00
  31. I had been with lotto social more than a few months then realised they were taking more payments than I had actually signed up to. I cancelled the membership online, took a screen shot and then realised more money had been taken from my account! I have contacted Lottosocial many times to resolve this and get emails informing myself I shall be contacted in 24 hours but don’t! They proceeded to take money so now I have notified the bank and they are investigating it. I will have the part laugh!! Please keep your money safe! Play the lottery.b DO NOT sign up to memberships online

    00
  32. This is a scam. I signed up for a one off payment of £1 that would give me 5 lines. They have since taken 4 lots of £5 without authority, it won’t let me cancel comes up direct debit hoping my bank can sort it out fuming is not the word

    00
  33. This is a scam. I signed up for a one off payment of £1 that would give me 5 lines. They have since taken 2 lots of £5 without authority, the last of which has taken me overdrawn. Have now cancelled the account and hope that’s the end of my problems.

    00
    • How do you get on site to cancell. They keep taking money from my account.

      00
  34. I thought I’d agreed to £5.00 per month. Just discovered they are taking £8 per week! Including £3. Gambling Transaction Fee! Went on to the website but the page for permanently deleting account is missing. Says oops! Scammers I reckon. Just getting on to my bank.

    00
  35. I’m really enjoying it I only play when I want to by cancelling or stopping the syndicate also the green games with the points I earn won a few 100 this way al in all a thumbs up from me

    00
  36. I was looking into what they are about pressed one button and now 5 pounds a week is being taken from my account please stay away from these people they are a load of thieves notified the bank to put a block on them

    00
  37. I’m fuming with this joke of s company having scams lying blanking emails I don’t know why UK Gambling Commission plus the gov.uk do they no they have given a gambling license to these neckends thief in twats tell you something If I ever knew their identity and seen them in person they’ll be getting a nice right hook on there fucking chin yid yids I’m starting a protest to shut these bastards down times are hard and there taking the piss out of decent folk ??????? I hope they see this

    00
  38. reading the review I can see quite a few people have had the same problems as me so were are all the so called people that are suppose to protect the general public from things like this ie, the gambling commission, lottery commission, internet gov.co and no doubt another half dozen qangos all sitting on there arse doing nothing while you and I have to fight tooth and nail to get their money back

    00
  39. I thank God I read reviews first. Life has been a bit challenging so had a quick look at Lotto social.
    I’m VERY GLAD I read them first. Please have a quick read about companies and sites before going ahead dealing with them. Reviews here are very helpful and will definitely warm new potential members as did with me.
    If something is too good to be true, you can smell it and I sensed when things were happening very quickly and I’m was being asked my bank details- The best I’ve done, considering the amount of scam they do and continue to do to hurt innocent people.

    I’m being bothered by their text messages always reminding me of playing every such day and there’s no way I’m able to stop that but I CAN DEAL WITH THAT- just by deleting it and I’ve stopped it notifying me.

    Scammers like them are enjoying spending people’s hard earnings and after all that they’ll die miserable, and also end up in HELL

    00
  40. Don’t even think about joining this scam, There are easy links to pause or to stop payments entirely……but they don’t work. They just have a rotating timer that is supposed to look like its stopping your account but actually it’s doing nothing and the payments will keep on being taken out of your bank!

    00
  41. Please people out there don’t get scammed with this lotto site. I just joined and I was scammed all my points goes and the site is too slow. They are BIG scamming company. I don’t recommend to anyone who is new on this online lotto (lottosocial.com)

    00
  42. Reading the reviews it strikes me they only seem to reply to the good reviews I also foolishly join this heap of shite and never won anything over 80p I managed to amass 4000 points but each time I played a game it took between 400 and a thousand points or if I was winning the game froze and once I had reset the points were down by another 400points I cancelled my subscription and they took my points,the credit and the money had save in the bank they also continued to deduct money from my account until I notified the bank to have it stopped the thing that worries me about this site is people keep joining up to it they will give you small wins then rip the piss out you and everyone seems powerless to do anything about it

    00
  43. They have been taking two lots of £5 out of my account using LottoSocial.Co and LOTTOSOCIAL.COM. I have emailed frequently but their only response is “we aim to respond within 24 hours” This is the biggest scam going. The only way they say is to go into your account! I haven’t got an account. They obviously need some more public publicity so people will know about them.
    I presume the 5 star ratings are them just putting different names.
    Thinking of contacting the BBC watchdog about them to see about giving them more publicity. But in the meantime I am contacting the ombudsman. SCAM SCAM SCAM.and CON ARTISTS. DO NOT GET CONNED.

    00
  44. They seem fine to me, it’s a good way to buy lottery tickets because it’s cheaper. If you find money coming out of your account regularly it’s because you probably clicked on a subscription and did not read what you were signing up for.
    You can easily stop any of them without deleting your account and faffing with customer service. Just click on the subscription on the dashboard and click cancel.

    To the reviewers saying SocialLotto is scamming their account, you can’t get tickets automatically and regularly without money coming out of your account regularly, the two go together unfortunately!

    00
    • It’s not lottery tickets you’re buying though, it’s a share of a bet on a lottery result with up to 50 other people. It actually works out more expensive per whole lottery ticket than buying an official ticket.

      00
    • Tell me Ben, have you won on this site, or tried to get your winnings from this site, I won £15 back in February, said they paid it into my PayPal, nope, spoke with online, emailed, was told the PayPal was sent back, they would re-issue it, guess what I’m still waiting, I gave up in the summer of ever getting the winnings, I signed from another site for a £1, I didn’t subscribe but yet they took money twice in one week, eventually figured how to stop that, its a scam site that doesn’t pay out legit money,

      00
  45. A big scam! Thieves! Don’t fall for their so called promotions Etc.

    00
  46. This is the worst set up I have ever come across I joined to play £5 a week I had very small wins which you can convert into credit and also points I accumulated about 4000 point and started to spend them on them on the games ranging from 200 to 400 point every time I play they deducted between 400 And a thousand points I got so fed up as this was happening every time I played a game so I eventually cancelled my account only to be told that they keep my cash winnings my credits even my points I had to go to the bank to stop my direct debits as they were taking three £5 transactions every three days

    00
  47. They rip people off and do not refund your money even after you have cancelled a syndicate and draws.
    They give you the same speak over and over about it being a third party syndicate offer and that you can cancel the ticket but they don’t tell you that they will randomly dip into your account when they feel like it and steal £5 whenever they want to.
    I have made a complaint to them 3 times now and nothing had been done about it so I will be reporting their site and changing my bank card number as they will keep robbing my money at will.

    00
  48. Like others I played one game and checked I was not subscribed. But then found that 5 GBP was taken out of my account. I have been trying to get my refund for the game I never played or agreed to play. They only send a scripted reply and will not supply a copy of the complaints procedure. Totally Irresponsible. I am going to complain to the gambling commission. Total Useless Con Artists!

    And before Lotto Social reply to this with the same rubbish they have replied to other reviews on this site for the same issues. Wake up why are a number of people falling into this trap. Because its a con to steal people’s money. Showing that you do not promote responsible practices.

    00
  49. Biggest arsxxoles goin rip off avoid charged after I stopped my syndicate and over drawn in my bank wouldn’t refund my money said I had to cancel when I clearly already did ???????

    00
  50. They never let you close up your account. They continue to debit your account.

    00
  51. They are very dodgy. Try and cancel your account, I have tried 4 times no luck. I have now contacted the Ombudsman and my Solicitor

    00
  52. I joined lotto social through another site, they stated it would be £1 for my first 10 lines and I could cancel my subscription at any time. I played the Tues lotto draw with my 10 line, but I found the site very slow with loads of pop ups, so I cancelled my subscription the next day with plenty of time before Fridays draw. But when I checked my bank account I am being charged £5 to play in a syndicate on Friday I have cancelled my subscription for. I would avoid this site, it’s a scam.

    00
  53. Took money from my account and didn’t give me a ‘ticket’ as promised. Have called my bank and cancelled my card!

    00
  54. This is a scam, they do not state all winnings at shared with 42 or more people. Even if you ask them to cancel it because of this they continue to take money out of your account.
    DO NOT!

    00
  55. I find the site really good, there is lots of offers that are confusing but just pick the best. For those complaining about them taking money from your account it’s because they automatically take payment for the lottery you choose every week so you don’t miss out, national lottery online do the exact same thing. If you don’t want them taking the extra money just go onto your main page, click on your lottery syndicate and then scroll to the bottom and click cancel your subscription. It takes 2 seconds. Good luck

    00
  56. A complete SCAM beware don’t give them your card number

    00
  57. Falsely toke money from my account. They did even give me what they say they take the money for. After weeks of telling me they’ll get back to in 72 hours. I finally got a response, which was a lie.

    00
  58. Lotto Social is definitely a SCAM! I entered just 1 date of EuroMillions number through my NHS discount & offers site. The lotto social has taken £36.00, £16 and regular weekly £5, (total of 7 payments), from my bank account. I have emailed lotto social on more than 20 occasions to stop the payments and also tried to contact them by phone. The telephone number comes up as fraudulent.
    I have now contacted my bank to stop any future money being taken and if I do not receive a refund of all the money taken I will be pursuing fraudulent payments through my bank.
    Do Not Sign Up to This Scam.

    00
  59. Absolute scam do not join up for a syndicate in their lottery was told that they never take a payment out of my account unless I ring them and make a payment over the phone. They say they make a note of your sort code and account number just to prove your over 18. Rung up my bank today and saw they had taken 14 pound out of my account this is an absolute disgrace do not go with them honestly you only win like 64 p half the time

    00
  60. Awful! Took money for syndicate earlier than stated and refused to refund…massive scam!

    00
  61. It is a massive waste of money and time, stay away!!!

    00
  62. I also signed up through another site for £1, got free spins and on my 2nd I won £15.00, not allowed to touch it for 72 hours because of fraud, this was in January, after 72 hours I withdrew the cash, got the usual email congrats yada yada, got the message on my phone on how to get my payment through paypal which is linked via your phone number apparently, so after many live chats, and messages back and forth, I am still waiting, I too was surprised they took £5 the next day, so I paused my account while waiting on payment, as soon as the pause was up, yep they took another £5, so as it stands I am on my 2nd pause which will be due to finish in a week, got the message the payment was returned from paypal and would be sent, its a load of bull, I know paypal and it doesnt take this long, so I have no doubt i will be closing this account and waving goodbye to my £15, someone needs to take this site down

    00
  63. These are an absolute slinky scammy. The ridiculous games to purchase with the points you win not actual cash glitch and freeze every time preventing a win of actual money infuriating to say the least I will not be dropping this as I just tried to cancel for the 5th time and instead the con site has taken my last £5 from my account and signed me up for another pointless Syndicate that I did not want

    00
  64. I signed up as a part of a survey offer and did the £1 payment for £10 credit, after which I’ve cancelled immediately afterwards, which was ok originally. After checking with my bank this week, I’ve found that the scammers that run this site, have Billed Me £35 within 3 days! Bank has raised as a fraud dispute due to this and I’ve had to have my card reissued. Raising this matter with the Gambling Commission, as this business is deceptive in their practices and definitely predatory. Would definitely warn others to avoid this scummy site.

    00
  65. I had entered for £1 and I then cancelled, I then had woman call to try and talk me into a syndicate and I adamantly said no! but they took £5 per week anyway. A few weeks before I noticed. I had to stop through my bank account to stop them taking.

    00
  66. Joined for £1 and cancelled subscription the following day – email received to confirm this, but now find an additional £5 was taken without my permission. I have asked for a refund and will raise this with the Gambling Commission.

    00
  67. I purchased a ticket with lotto social through an offer from another website. The next morning without warning, they had taken a further five pounds from my bank account.
    I queried this and discovered I had unknowingly signed up to a subscription, which I cancelled straight away. I contacted lotto social by email to query the charge, to be told I could not have a refund as tickets had been issued. What tickets? I paid for the initial offer and whilst it does appear further tickets were issued, it looks like they have been cancelled when I ended the subscription, I didn’t agree to. I did not consent to lotto social taking any further payments from my account and feel it was done rather sneakily, as it was taken within a few hours of me purchasing the offer ticket. I would advise people to steer clear of this site. I wonder how much they have made through this scam, of helping themselves to money from people’s accounts without their consent. Then refusing to refund, claiming they have issued tickets. It shouldn’t be allowed. Any company that needs to rip it’s customers off is dodgy and needs to be investigated. I have emailed their so called customer service several times. I have been given different responses to my query and now they are not replying. Avoid this site, unless you want to be scammed.

    00
  68. Lotto social is a disgrace how they treat customers you get hold of so called live chat customers service and the gormless years whining got a clue what they’re doing if you want a question answering you have to wait 24hours they dip into your bank account without having been given permission which I see I my 8 years of being in law cases like this well that’s my opinion 24hours get back to you what a joke

    00
  69. Hi could u tell me why u taken ma net out of my bank please I have not signed up for this it is disgrace

    00
  70. I am absolutely shocked to realise that lotto social have been taking money out weekly from my account with no confirmation that this will be happening whether it’s been 25p or 1.99 or 3.99 or 6.99 I’m absolutely disgusted these are an absolute con I advise anyone to stay away!!
    I never check my bank statements so we are going back a long time months and months maybe longer of them taking money from my account and all I’ve had is someone will contact you I’m absolutely fuming! Be aware of these

    00
  71. I am owed over £90 two cheques it has been 2 months have not received they always say they have escalated above but do not ever get reply by email or phone this is a big SCAM beware

    00
  72. Bit confused why there are so many bad reviews here and loads of good reviews on trust pilot. Anyway it was too late anywayz cos I bought some tickets for £1 just before the big guaranteed jackpot. I mean, happy to lose £1. That said I won some free games on my first go! In fact they have lots of games and I’ve been getting them for free ever since. I win tiny bits of cash nothing to boast about, but I have been swapping them for lottery credit. I think it’s 4 or 5 times more than the small cash win I had, so why not. I bought mega millions lines. So all good so far.

    00
  73. I think they have been great as i won – can’t believe so many negative comments

    00
  74. They are a scam they called me and I told them they were and denied it

    00
  75. Received an email from lotto social in Dec last yr offering 2 good 2 be true lotto draws!!! That’s exactly what they were their 1st chq bounced and it took 2 months of threats of solicitor b4 they coughed up. Now they r withholding payment again from mid August. This company lotto social folded in April please chk it out a companies house. Don’t pay them anything at all. Hatcher are a scam who change their online game name constantly to evade the courts

    00
  76. Do not use this company – I have tried several times to make contact to remove my debit card details from their account as unable to do this online. In addition, money taken from my account without my knowledge.

    00
  77. I had a wowcher gift for lottosocial, followed instructions and put wowcher code in, still wanted my bank details but they assured that no money would be taken, it is a con, as you can guess within a day money was taken. I have contacted them twice and they just ignore my requests for a refund. They are terrible. Not even an apology. They have no complains process either that they will tell me about. There must be a body overseeing companies like this. They have also been bombarding me with texts to gamble. I very good way to get people hooked.

    00
    • Awful company.. don’t join up and don’t give them your bank details, they say they won’t take money and then do… and you can’t get a refund, I will continue to bad mouth them until my money is returned

      00
  78. Keep taking money despite being asked to stop. Part owned by HSBC who continue to allow payments to be taken despite THREE phone calls to stop transactions. Wholly fraudulent.

    00
  79. Pretty terrible website. I’m all for the idea of lottery syndicates but the website is terrible, and there is no way to actually close your account (and stop them taking your money). I’ve just had to talk to their customer service to close mine because they took money from my account after I followed their steps to “close your account” (it doesn’t do that). They have said they will close my account within 24 hours but I’m wondering if they actually will…. they didn’t even answer why I had money withdrawn!

    00
  80. No way you can contact them. Online account you can unsubscribe from it. Once your bank details with them they keep taking money from your account. I have requested to close my account several times but they keep taking money. Only email is contact but it’s not replying you back.
    Scammers. Guys keep checking your account.

  81. Just had a call from Lotto Social saying im in the top 10 to win a Samsung S8 that I’ve entered a competition online in free giveaways they knew my address, after a long drawn out process, asked for bank details to enter into lotto draws said I wasn’t going to give them over the phone, she said it’s no different to sharing your sort code, and spouted off her own, then said I’m not asking for your card number you can give old bank details if you wish, an account with no money in, it’s only so we can pay into your account. She invited me to check out the company from the details she had text….I said I couldn’t access them whilst on the phone so here I am…. checking out all these other bad reviews….
    I’ve blocked the number from my phone… 02039660871

    00
  82. Just had a random call from them saying I’m in the final for an iPhone 8 and 70 lotto tickets a week if I pay 14 pounds by the end of the month, I said I don’t think so I’m not interested and they still carry on trying to talk me into it making me an account without any concent! I said no I don’t give bank details out over the phone or to anyone I don’t know and she said oh no we understand that’s why you don’t have to make any payments just yet we will let you access everything first to see if you like it.. so I put her on mute and let her talk to herself for 10 mins. She was ignorant to everything I said to do with not wanting it. I’ll be reporting it to the bank just so they know. Big scammers!

    00
  83. £14 a fortnight taken from my bank for the last 8 months. Never won more than a £1.
    Have to log into site numerous times just to check numbers.
    No way of cancelling as emails ignored and phone number just rings out..
    Don’t touch this site under any circumstances.. ITS A SCAM

    00
  84. appears a legit company BUT it’s not hatchster the owner have operated other gaming sites until it becomes a bit too dodgy for them to continue then they just close down not contactable then hey presto they appear as another gaming site under a different name quite a few people I know have lost money with lottosocial re their cheques bounce/post office payouts refused at p o no refund no reply to any pressing questions put to them trading standards are taking up the cases

  85. Just had a cold call from this company, promising the sun and the moon and of course a phone, then can we have your bank account details, no I do not think so, a split second later another voice, male this time trying to convince me to part with details, again I do not think so, do not take no for an answer, had to hang up. Please be aware that they are very persistent!

    00
  86. Really Bad. Biggest scam ever. Did this Wowcher thing and it’s just a waste of time.

    00
  87. I want to close my account with lotto social but I have tried to manage my account and stop syndicate but it does not work. What can I do? I cannot afford it.

    00
    • I phoned my bank and got it stopped but couldn’t get back the payment they already taken, they are thieves and robbers

      00
    • Call your bank and cancel all payments. Also report to the bank that the site uses duress to secure funds.

      00
  88. Got a wowcher lotto social ticket which cost me £2 all fun and games until money started going missing from my account, not once did it say they will continue to take money from my account when I purchased the deal. Somehow they have managed to save my bank details from wowcher onto the website and every time I email they refuse to do anything about it. I’m a poor student as it is and this is just a complete scam!

    00
  89. Absolute scam. Will not delete your account. Send you spammy text msgs. Holding onto your card information that you are unable to delete.

    I’m now going to send them hundreds of emails and maybe they will actually delete my account as I’ve requested a few times.

    Do not sign up under any circumstance.

    It’s 100% a scam.

    00
  90. Signed up on the 11th may for one off £1 offer tried cancelling same day I have been emailing everyday to try get it cancelled but they have continued to take money from the account without authorisation. They are not answering their phone and it’s like getting blood from a stone in terms of an email reply

    00
  91. Taking money out of my account that I never actioned and didn’t inform me of numbers and now I can’t get hold of them to speak about this. Disgusting…

    00
  92. Had a phone call from them today and on paper it sounds a good idea, the alarm bells started ringing when they asked for my bank account details to set up a direct debit. I don’t think so.

    00
  93. Terrible site never pays out checks bounce and some Chloe must run the show from a 1 bed flat because she’s the only one replying to all messages. Joe was the name on the check that bounced (probly Chloe’s inbreed brother/lover) SCAM! I could go all day but cba!

    00
  94. I have had two payments taken out of my account both £8-00 each which I knew nothing about until I checked my bank detail’s I got in touch with my bank right away to put a stop to these terrible cheat’s how can people do this to innocent people

    00
  95. I recently waited for weeks due to some nonsense or other for a cheque for £54.00 that bounced 10/05/2018
    I have in the past collected small winnings thru the post officer but since they’ve changed their payout method to cheques only or Paypal (which I would not give them details for). It’s a shame as I like the site when it’s not having glitches and I did win one of their experiences but will now be cancelling my membership

    00
    • Finally received payment to my account. Such a shame that this issue occurred as I was happy to be a member until this happened.

      00
  96. Lotto social appear to have a fairly good customer rating BUT beware of this seemingly authorized lotto site because although they advertise their offers and happy customers
    whenever somebody has a win….its in a syndicate of 40+ so unless you are lucky enough to get 5+ numbers eg the uk lotto draws your winnings will be paultry 4 example i recently got 3 numbers on the uk lotto draw x2 resulting in £1 winnings i deliberately let my small wins build up to £10.48 then just to see how it went with them paying out to me i cashed in with a request for a cheque a chq arrived by post within 5 working days i presented it to my bank for cashing it was registered as awaiting clearance then on the 5th day it was returned eg bounced this is a highly unlikely practise from a supposedly well trusted lotto company my solicitor is waiting for my instructions not only for compensation re £90+ paid to them over the last 3 months but also to get the ?? company ?? closed down as fraudsters BEWARE BEWARE

    00
  97. Nothing but trouble. Pages and sites crashing totally unable to get loged in. Called the number of facebook site and it was a machine answering fir a 12 numbered po box. Sure it is a scam

    00
  98. Won £20 in the first few days and have spent over a month trying to get them to actually pay me. The only viable method of payout they offer is by cheque, and they’ve just been lying to me for five straight weeks about having sent it.

    I contact their support and they say they will escalate it to the “transaction team” and will call me back. Not even once did they bother to do so. They’ve claimed multiple times they’ve mailed the cheque but nothing ever arrived. Every time you speak to them they just give you the same roundabout bullshit and hope you go away.

    Pretty sure this site is just a scam. I cannot find a single example of them actually paying someone.

    00
  99. It’s a great shame that we have had calls and email from lotto social. To confirm that we have won on a few times. As we have asked if they could pay it into our account, because off the amount was high. It had never went into my account at all. Why let people down, we say.

    00
  100. I am very sad, I have just cancelled my subscription & next week I will close my account & I spend a lot.
    Why?
    The main reason is no customer service, copy & paste replies from whom or what I don’t know but the written English is not great & absolutely no help, also to purchase you must try many times & it comes up declined?
    So sad this site could be so great, love all the options & prices, but the important bits they don’t seem to care, also on the bottom of their website are reviews, to get a review on there is pretty impossible & there are no bad reviews?
    I also asked how I would close my account, as I have many draws pending & would be about 10 days before I could close the account, I got this reply :- chloe kent (Support) Mar 19, 11:00 GMT Hi Leslie, Your account has been set to be deleted. It will be removed within 24 hours after the system updates. Regards, Chloe
    Can you believe that!

    00
  101. Win an iPhone 8. Sounds great and they’ll increase your chances of winning Euromillions in a syndicate by giving you additional lines for a very cheap price BUT they want your bank sort code and account number so they can set up a direct debit. Erm I don’t think so. Talk about pressurising someone to give out details .. “but you do understand that you’ll be covered by the direct debit guarantee?”
    Well, durr, yes I do BUT I also understand that with those details an account can be drained by a direct debit you forget to cancel.
    WOW how to get people into debt without them realising it.
    I hung up on them in the end, politely, of course!

    00
  102. Total rubbish. Had one go and found they stopped me £20 over a month. Cancelled.

    00
  103. Just realised they were billing me £5 a month. Have stopped subscription. Nowhere does it make it clear that this will happen. Go to tickets and click stop subscription to leave.

    00
  104. Made a mistake by buying via wowcher once, they keep taking money as no clear cancellation option given on their website.
    Try to stop syndicate but not been possible.

    00
  105. You’ll win an iPhone – great.

    Let’s talk about syndicate lotteries – yay.

    Now sir can I please have your debit card details – no.

    Scam scam scam scam scam scam scam

    00
  106. Cant get results for previous games its like I never bought the tickets i am pissed off at the moment

    00
  107. I just got off the phone with them and all they wanted was my bank details l told them I was not going to give them my details as l didn’t feel safe but they just tried to put me under pressure so I just hung up don’t trust any one who asks for your bank details it’s a scam

    00
  108. I strongly recommend people not to use this site, it’s a complete con, even if you do win any money, if you want the actual cash then reduces it even more, i had over 5 pounds in prizes but if I wanted to have it in cash instead of spending it on the site, then it went down to 70 pence. There’s 50 people in a syndicate you each pay a fiver for 10 lines that’s 250 pounds for 25 pounds worth of tickets.

    00
  109. Absolute scam!!! Pay £14.99 a month to win 40p a week not even that, I won a £5 and didn’t even go onto my account been on this for about 4 months and half the games don’t even work properly it’s just a fixed site and need to be shut down! Shame I haft to rate it! ?

    00
  110. Zero star. I understand it was £1:00 and took £5.00 the next day and I don’t normally check my account I was shocked to realise that they take £5.00 each week. Ghastly people.

    00
    • Hello, I was also charged £5,- weekly without knowing it and panicked because didn’t know how I agreed to it, but in their terms it says you gonna be charged automatically after first £1,- payment.
      You can unsubscribe from it by stopping your syndicate on your account, it explains it on the website, I rang them and nice customer service person told me step by step how to do it.
      But it is unfortunately not that clear.

      00
      • They charged me £5 AFTER I left my syndicate, so I was charged for nothing. When I asked why, they didn’t even answer.

        00
  111. Must have been under the weather when I joined this lot. After one draw I cancelled my account and received an email confirming this. A week later they took two amounts of £5 from my account. I emailed then twice before I received a reply asking me for my details. I have emailed them four times since and no response. My bank has been informed not to pay lotto social again. They are either incredibly understaffed or the company is just a SCAM. Don’t go anywhere near them.

    00
  112. Scary just how pushy this is to get your bank details – I stated I’m disabled and can’t move from my bed so was asked if they suggested numbers to me I could recall my own bank details! Plus the caller talked about ‘the secret’ – a book that’s a bit David Ike to say the least – I was dizzy from my meds and really dragged along in that call, usually I’d be more assertive in my refusal, but I was off my game – their pushy approach is not fair on the vulnerable and they shouldn’t even try and take bank details by phone – where’s the cooling off period needed by law with such companies? So wrong.

    00
  113. I have used this site for a while and be clear it is a syndicate so each time you play there will be a number of other people contributing towards the ticket so if you win it will be shared among the syndicate, this is not a scam it works in the same way as any other syndicate. The reason for my bad review I won £18 and tried to get the money from the Post Office and the staff at 2 Post Offices have never heard of this option to pay, even an email back from Post Office Customer Services confirming it could be cashed at a Post Office did not help. I contact Lottosocial before Christmas asking for a cheque, which is the alternative payment method and have not heard anything since. My advice if you do play and win make sure you request a cheque and not the Post Office payment method.

    00
  114. Lotto social is a big con. I played and won bonus points to play the games that apparently you can win money on. When I played I supposedly won and when I tried to collect my winnings I was presented with a blank screen. The bonus points were taken from my account to play the games and received nothing when I won. I spoke to Alex Cross whom at first appeared helpful by giving me 1200 bonus points. I played those points and won and again received nothing and Alex Cross refused to do anything. I told Alex to stick his site, outlawed them from my credit card and told him I will write a review.
    DO NOT TRUST LOTTO SOCIAL, IT’S A BIG CON, YOU PAY YOUR MONEY AND WIN NOTHING.

    00
  115. These guys are absolute fraud and scam. They send you a text to play £1 syndicate and then they will keep on charging £5 on weekly basis.

    I have filed a dispute with my C.C provider and complaint to FCA.

    These guys should be reported and stopped.

    00
    • I just cancelled mine now but judging by your comments I might inform my bank as well. Thank you. I got the idea that it was only one off and said £1.00. But the next day they took £5.00 and as I don’t check my account that often I was shocked that they kept doing that every week £5.00. I have been an idiot.

      00
    • Total SCAM
      Reported to my bank, I did not agree to continually payments, BEWARE

      00
  116. Like many others just thought I was signed up for £1 go not additional £5 per week. Cancelled now requesting £30 refund from 6 weeks deductions..

    00
  117. I’ve been scammed: Entered through Groupon loads of lines for £1 and now they’ve taken another £5 the next day. I’ve immediately cancelled the subscription and am waiting for a call back to confirm my refund. They don’t make it clear that you are entering an ongoing subscription. Complete Scammers.

    00
  118. Wasn’t told I was signed up for a direct debit weekly draw. They took £5 from me without my consent. By definition this is THEFT

    00
  119. Sounded great till she wanted my bank details, glad I said I wanted to check things out, glad I did and read all the comments won’t be touching this lotto social, thanks guys

    00
  120. I thought that I was buying a one off for £1 and now I see that they have £5 every week for four weeks, how do i stop them from taking any more money from my account.

    00
  121. I thought I was paying £1 to play one off and they took 6 pounds from my account! The only money I had an ended up overdrawn!

    00
  122. Called me today and tried to hook me in with “free lines” and that I couldn’t get this much from the national lottery for 23p a go. Seemed ok till asked me for bank details which I declined 3 times to give, he then gave me a story about how they wouldn’t do anything illegal or he could “lose his job”. Kept on badgering for me to join despite me clearly saying no not today. AVOID!

    00
  123. Well, thank goodness I read all these reviews! Had a lady phone me and it sounded ok, THEN, she asked for my bank details, and was quite insistent. Red flag went up and I didn’t give them to her. Has not stopped phoning me since! Alas for LottoSocial! I shall not be falling for this!

    00
  124. Good I didn’t have them my bank details, just phone number.
    This creepy bustards thanks people comments. Have made much clearer there intentions.
    Don’t lose your money for nothing.

    00
  125. Absolutely awful. LottoSocial steals money from their customers. After placing one bet on their website they have since produced ongoing bets coming out of my account every week which I never authorised for. This is completely immoral.

    I have had much more pleasant visits on other betting sites, where their customer service has been incredible and they aim to help you with any problems you have. LottoSocial does not seem to consider customer service as a worthwhile service. I recommend using any other website.

    I will never use this site again and would recommend no one else to use it until they sort out their customer service.

    00
  126. £39 a month for 3 months and if don’t win £1k money paid will be refunded apparently. Won 10 free lines he said, then said he was checking her details were correct to ensure hed got the right person, she gave him all details, name, dob, address, bank details, then after all that he told her she’d just subscribed …so he’d tricked her….

    00
  127. Multiple transactions have been taken out of my account spuriously, without my permission. Cancelled tickets – money is still taken out… Deleted my account… Money is still taken out. Each time I’m contacted by “Chloe” just like everyone else via email. Do not trust!

    00
  128. Joined then regretted it then found it impossible to to close account on line. Over the period of one week phoned and cancelled through operator Chloe 3 times, no confirmation or cancellation forthcoming. Read this forum, then cancelled my credit card. MY ADVISE WOULD BE TO AVOID THIS BUNCH OF TRICKSTERS LIKE THE PLAGUE.

    00
  129. I had a go one week, several weeks later I noticed payments coming out of my bank! I did not ask for more goes, don’t know if its a scam or not.

    00
  130. Just about impossible to de register from. No unsubscribe. They take money for extra syndicate that you’re not aware of agreeing to. Just because you looked at it! I’ve been to my bank 3 times to stop payments, which still went out. It’s now logged as fraud and I’ve had to have my bank card cancelled. Don’t join its a nightmare!

    00
  131. Total and utter scammers, plus the total lack of respect, cold calling at all hours of the day, not even bothering to leave a voicemail.

    00
  132. Do not sign up with Lotto Social! They take money from your account. I just checked my bank account and Lotto Social having been charging me for a syndicate I did NOT agree to pay for. Not much on the account in how to unregister. Keep away from the scummy scammers!

    00
  133. Scam be aware of these nonsense lotto. Even after cancellation they taken money out of my account.

    00
  134. 37 times today this company has called me! 37 constant calls! I look forward to my reply from head office!

    00
    • It’s a total scam & scum organization – beware of how easily they can raid your credit card with both transaction amounts and a cash transfer fee – non of which is recoverable as it’s deemed a cash transaction by credit card companies – BEWARE!

      00
  135. Love the way Lotto Social try to sell the dreams around the big jackpots. You know you dont really stand a chance of winning but i bought some tickets anyway. Hell, why not. Its given us something to talk about in the office today. Here’s hoping that i dont have to go back to work after Friday!

    00
  136. Just saw on Tv that the Powerball in America is nearly a billion dollars! Apparently you can’t buy tickets in this country but did some research and you can either bet on the Powerball or you can buy real tickets but they are shared in a syndicate. I bought a few of both types, but got more in a syndicate. I had to do a bit of digging to find out how many people are in the syndicate – apparently its 49 players. Not bad on a billion dollars i guess cos you get more lines. Was expensive for the single lines.

    Also checked out this company – seems legit. Called them rather than emailed so i could get a sense of if they are real. They have customer service in the US i think as an american guy called Alex was very helpful. I said that people complained about them. He said that they offer a subscrioption service whcih people often forget they have or dont read the offer properly. Anyway i got powerball lines and got some games free.

    00
  137. Do not start with these arse holes. For 1 they can’t even answer a bloody email or phone call. When u ring the line it says all of our advisors are currently busy, ALL DAY. It’s not acceptable and I’ve had money taken out of my account without my consent. The bastards don’t even have the decency to respond so, I’ve contacted my bank & had it refunded. This companies a joke lol avoid it at all cost

    00
  138. Don’t see what the fuss is about – I’ve bought from them through Wowcher about 10 times now. Rang Wowcher about them being fake and can’t legally offer lotto lines – apparently as its not a bet they can do. It’s a syndicate people. So don’t play if you don’t want to share.

    00
  139. Definitely a scam! Created an account and it saved my credit card details and phone number which couldn’t be removed. Phoned my bank and changed my card!

    00
  140. Scam got some vouchers of wowcher only way could get them was if put my bank details in them they tried rinsing me reported it all to the bank! Scam not even U.K. Related Malta LOL says lotto don’t sell tickets etc to anyone outside of uk

    00
  141. Cool. Like the games, like the other lotteries – cheap offers but not won anything big yet. But you gotta be in it to win it as they say, hahah

    00
  142. Bought some Powerball tickets – much cheaper than other sites!

    00
  143. Thanks Alissia – good tip. I wasn’t sure how to get the free games. I got 5 games when i signed up and played them. Won on Spin me a fortune £20 but then wasn’t sure how to get more.

    I will try what you say.

    00
  144. I love lotto woggle and ive just worked out that if i go to the site every week i can get points which give me free games each time.
    They don’t tell you on the site but i just go there – and then always seem to get points. When i dont go for a couple of weeks i get less points.
    Dont know if they want you to know this but thats hoe to get free games. Some of the games are easy to win so ive won a bit of money. My lines havent come up with much winnings yet.

    00
  145. Low life scumbags scammers. Barely legal. Only signed up because of 20 Cogs. As soon as they have your bank details they will repeatedly fuck you over as much as possible. £5 for 10 pointless lines. They are raking it in at your expense. You might as well throw money down the drain – same difference. “Oohh but maybe I’ll win!” NO – no you won’t. I highly doubt there’s anyone who’s ever won anything worth anything more than a few pence. There’s no chat support – they just hide behind their fancy website with bullshit help topics. Can you get a refund? No. Ps. You might want to cancel the direct debit directly from bank to stop these greedy scumbags rinsing you for everything you’ve got.

    00
  146. I bought a one off package of 10 lines from wowcher – love the free games. Need to win now, LOL

    00
  147. I have been offered multiple free entries for the next 4 Euromillions draws, but have to give some bank account details first in order that weekly payments can be taken thereafter. Not keen to do so! The maxim – if it sounds too good to be true it usually is – springs to mind. So probably best to leave it alone!

    00
  148. Glad I read this first, was just about to buy a wowcher for this but thought I’d check first, I wonder if wowcher knows about this, promoting them, I will not be registering.

    00
  149. Have to admit when I first saw the site I thought it was only £1 for 10 lines only, but then I saw that it was £5 weekly after that. Let’s see – I’ll give it a month and see how it goes.

    00
  150. This are big scammers. Cancelled my subscription and the next day there was £20 pending to this company on my bank account. I emailed and got an email from Chloe saying no money would be taken. Low and behold the next day £20 had gone from my account.

    I’ve emailed them several times a day and only got 1 reply to say the email had been forwarded to the transaction department, but I have heard nothing.

    I can only imagine the positive reviews are paid for by the company.

    00
  151. It’s being run from a webcloud IP going through several countries, the owner is Mike Lewis one of several aliases, the tech man is Olu Ladega again one of several aliases a pure scam have been reported by me to fraud office and have been in touch with Facebook to have 20cogs and gtk ads removed for supplying data. CAREFUL LADIES AND GENTLEMEN PLEASE DONT FALL FOR IT!

    00
  152. These people are crooks and this is a scam, if they have your details don’t try to close your account via their website, that’s literally impossible and trust me I checked.

    DO NOT REGISTER.

    If you have already as I foolishly did via 20cogs.co.uk then contact your bank and make sure they block any further charges. They charged me £5 for a £1 promo offer. Totally outrageous. I have seen this promoted on Swagbucks as well as 20cogs so beware.

    I took me a long time to find this page on their misleading fraudulent website. Their help is

    https://lottosocial.com/membersarea-syndicate/

    Once logged in there is where I apparently cancel my syndicate subscription, which I just did. It remains to be seen if they attempt to steal more of my money. I want my £5 returned.

    I am sure these people have stolen a lot of money.

    As well as contacting your bank complain to whoever led you towards that site, complain to the gaming commission

    http://www.gamblingcommission.gov.uk/news-action-and-statistics/Match-fixing-and-sports-integrity/Confidential-intelligence-line.aspx

    Short of calling the police directly, though that ay be an option depending on hw much they take, perhaps also try crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 or go online to provide information anonymously

    The company that owns lottosocial.com is Hatchster Limited address and details of the company and it’s directors is here.

  153. It didn’t even occur to me that they may be taking money out of my bank until I read the reviews on here and low and behold they had. The only time I gave them my bank details was to confirm my age and they said that no money would be taken out of my bank. I didn’t even have any syndicates, so what exactly was I paying for?? SCAM!

    00
  154. This is the biggest scam. Don’t join. I stupidly joined for a pound, but then read the reviews (all bad) so rang and cancelled my account. A polite man said account was cancelled and no further money would be taken from my account. He lied, they have continued to take money, but I have now contacted my bank and they have assured me that no further money can be taken from my account soooooo thank goodness, I have a reputable and helpful bank.

    00
  155. I have played lotto social for over 2 years up to now I’m happy with my small winnings, I save the cash up on my account and collect it when it gets to around £50 had not trouble collecting at the post office and if you want to cancel your account its not that hard either just go to your bank and stop payments from them.

    00
  156. They keep taking money from my account and I didn’t even know, what happened to the money they took as I never play any game. How can I stop their service if you can call it that. There is no phone number or online option to do that. Scam, scam, scam, stay away!

  157. I keep getting money taken from my account, how do I stop this from happening in don’t want to play anymore.

    00
  158. More lines for the money than the other sites I’ve seen.

    00
  159. Liked it so far. Customer service was very helpful when I had a problem with the website.

    00
  160. Signed up using a wowcher code I paid for. I selected my lines I bought through wowcher. 4 payments have been taken from my bank account. There is no customer service either…. joke

    00
  161. Been decent for me so far. Site looks nice and is easy to use. Doesn’t seem like a scam, although only won small amounts so far.

    00
  162. Been great for me so far. A few small wins, fingers crossed the big one is coming!

    00
  163. Spoke to a lady at customer service regarding their direct debit service to make sure it’s not a scam, she sounded rather convincing until I overheard in the background someone referring to her as Almira when she gave me a different name! Googled her and I think she is one of the owner or consultant. She sounded flirty too. Strange way of conducting a business.

    00
  164. Don’t win hardly anything and always high number of people in syndicates.

    00
  165. Heres the thing I brought 10 lines and my girlfriend brought 10 lines. We were in different syndicates, but we both had the same numbers for each line and the same raffle numbers … This means that everyone who pays is given the same lines so even though they say the syndicates are capped at 49 users the reality is you will be sharing with far more people so you will win a far smaller share if you win.

    00
  166. Signed up a few weeks back on one of their Wowcher promos and honestly must say I’ve had a good experience so far. Does all the stuff you’d expect a lottery website to do with minimum of fuss.

    The occasional bug on the website (on one occasion their free Christmas Giveaway game didn’t give me my prize) prevents a 5 star rating. But on the whole I’ve been pleasantly surprised by how good this service is.

    00
  167. Help. I had a phone call a few months ago from a local number. Invested in the syndicate. Not heard anything since and want to be involved but don’t know what to do. Sorry if that sounds stupid, but I don’t gamble. I just felt I gotta be in it to win it.

    00
  168. BEWARE
    I brought a deal off voucher for £2 for £8 worth of play. I know it’s not a lot, but they are taking £2 every other day and didn’t even get the deal.

    00
  169. I don’t understand a lot of the negativity on here.

    For me Lotto Social has been a great way to play the lottery online. Very straightforward and easy to view your tickets and check your winnings after each draw, and pretty decent value for money with the number of lines you get in a subscription.

    I’ve also found the games you can play on the website to be a nice perk. I haven’t won anything yet, but being able to win prizes through skill rather than just luck is a nice touch I think.

    My only gripe would be you can’t check your winnings immediately after the draw, so I’ve got into the habit of checking the next day.

    Overall though, fun website and a good alternative to playing conventionally!

    00
  170. There is no option for removing, delete the account.

    00
  171. I am still waiting for my cheque for almost 2 weeks now.

    00
  172. I’ve recently made 3 withdrawals on Lotto-social and it says it’ll take up to 7 days via cheque, but I’ve not received anything in the post. Starting to believe this is a scam.

    • Hi Ben,

If you still haven’t received anything please do get in touch on support@lottosocial.com and we can help resolve this for you.

      Thanks.

      00
  173. Well, I certainly hope that you’re not a scam Lottosocial. Where are you based? Are you part of the Lottery? Is it true what these mails saying? Do you have the respect to answer these questions? I think we all need answers. I’m not impressed with the feedback.

    • Hi there Andrea,
      Apologies for the late response. Lotto Social is certainly not a scam. We are a syndicate management service. We offer our members an alternative, good value way to play various lotteries including the EuroMillions and Lotto. Members like to play in our syndicates as they don’t have the hassle of setting one up themselves, but get all the value that syndicates provide. Tickets are from The National Lottery, and are genuine tickets – this is not a bet, so members also like the fact that they still give money to good causes at the same time. We also offer members free games where they can win up to £7k cash prizes, and all members earn reward points, even if they don’t win on the lottery – to redeem against more free games. Lotto Social is based in the UK. I hope this goes some way to answering some of your questions. Thanks, The Lotto Social team

  174. Bought vouchers through Living Social, paying by PayPal. When I came to redeem them Lotto Social required credit card details. I wasn’t happy with that so did a search and found this site. So glad I did! I have requested a refund from Living Social- not an easy process!

  175. All worked for me, got my free line on syndicate (which funnily enough won couple of pounds in the draw), then switched to subscription as I keep forgetting to buy actual ticket every week or so.

    00
    • Dear Erik,
      Thank you for the positive review. We are delighted you have already won with your syndicate. Good luck with winning the big one! The Lotto Social team

      00
  176. I bought a couple lines through Wowcher last week, and had some trouble redeeming it. After reading the reviews here I was concerned about being able to get in touch with them. But I called their help line, and I have to say the agent that I spoke with was really helpful.

    00
    • What number did you use? I had the same problem.

      00
  177. it’s a scam! Do not write your credit card info!

    00
  178. Joined on 6th may, told to expect a confirmation email or text, to date, Nada, zip, nothing. Feeling a bit foolish & ripped off.

    00
  179. Cancelled my subscription to Lotto-social 12.04.2016….they never respond to my emails!!!
    Since then they have taken another £60.00 up until 28.04.2016
    Have requested a full refund…even had to resort to cancelling my credit card because of these unauthorized transactions.
    Still No replies to my emails…frustrating!!!

    00
  180. This is a scam, they took 50£ from my account this month, 25€ in a single day. I send them an email asking to stop the service because I didn’t authorize any transaction and they answer me saying that the service has been stopped. The following day guess what? They charge me again! Don’t trust this company. I had to talk with my Bank to stop them! NOT TO BE TRUSTED!

    00
    • Dear Maria,
      I am not sure that it is our service you have joined as we do not have any packages where you can take £50 in one month, unless you have signed up for more than one of our packages at the same time. Also, we do not have a £25 offer. If you would like to speak to us further you can try our help line which is on our site. If there has been some mistake, I’m sure we can rectify the situation for you.

      00
  181. Been part of the syndicate for about 2 months now and won only coppers not too please to be honest as I don’t have much money and they made me thing I was in a really good chance of winning will give it another month if no success then I’m canceling.

    00
  182. Saw their offer on Topcashback and got 20 EuroMillions Lines for free in my first week when I join their £5 weekly subscription. Also got a £3 cash back. Thought it’s good value. We’ll see if I’m lucky enough to win something.

    00
  183. Lotto-social. I recently joined the syndicate site thinking it would give me an increased chance of winning a share of the jackpot. 20 lines for 4.99 I thought was a bargain. After looking at all the lines I played over a few weeks in January I noticed none of the lotto number went above 49, considering the lotto changed to 59 in October I submitted a query to the site no 38 draws since the change in October on 5 draws have had jackpots with numbers less than 49. So when I asked why no lines go above 49 instead of 59 their reply was ‘We are working to incorporate this change to our website’. Basically your chances of winning a share of the jackpot on that site are greatly reduced because the site is out of date. False hope and false advertisement because they are not letting new customer know the syndicate numbers don’t go above 49!!

Lotto Social Exposed — Why Are So Many Vouchers, Coupons, and Different Discounts?

Lotto Social Review

Is Lotto Social a scam? That’s the million-dollar question, isn’t it?

If you’ve gone through some reviews, you already know that many people are highly dissatisfied with what Lotto Social has to offer.

Lotto Social cancel requests have been virtually impossible to process according to people who have accounts there. So, should you be concerned? Should you give this website a try?

But let’s start with the basics. What exactly does this platform have to offer? Lotto-social is an online lottery syndicate provider for EuroMillions and the UK Lotto, as well as multiple other large international lotteries.

Several promotions are also featured there, which is probably the one characteristic that makes so many people interested in the platform. The Lotto Social app, however, comes with lots of ambiguities that we will try to address in this review.

Games at LottoSocial.com

Lotto Millions started by only offering ticket buying options for EuroMillions and the UK Lotto. Today, several additional games have been added to the range of opportunities – Thunderball, Mega Millions, Powerball, Euro Jackpot, and SuperEnalotto. Syndicate gameplay is feasible for all of these.

Syndicates are capped at 49 shares. There is no information on what happens if not all shares are purchased. Their system chooses ticket lines.

Purchasing syndicate tickets through their system is relatively easy. You need a registered account for Lotto Social UK. Once you verify your membership, you can buy individual tickets or sign up for a subscription membership.

Keep in mind, however, there have been lots of complaints about Lotto Social cancel procedures. If you’re trying to find out how to cancel Lotto Social and how to stop Lotto Social payments, check out some of the user comments under the guide. Many people have found it nearly impossible to cancel their account after signing up, which is something you need to remain mindful of.

Claiming Your Prizes

Winnings of under £1,000 are paid into your account within 14 days. For winnings over £1,000, players have to contact customer service. There is no information on how long the claim process will take. Your account has to have a minimum of £5 to claim any of your winnings.

Unfortunately, a lot of the customer service information is provided only after you register, and you provide your details. Hence, you have to sign up for a membership before you can learn something more. That’s fishy and should be a red flag for you!

Who Can Play at Lotto Social?

You need to enter a mobile phone number before you can sign up for a Lotto Social account.

The terms and conditions do not list an age limit for signing up, and it seems that such information isn’t being required from new members.

The signup page also suggests that you don’t have to be in the UK to play, even though the site is supposedly based there.

Who is Behind LottoSocial.com?

Hatchster Ltd. is the owner and operator of LottoSocial.com. They are a company in the UK that builds online applications for B2C and B2B clients.

This company also owns the Lottobytext.co.uk lottery website.

Doing some research reveals this is a legitimate UK company that employs multiple people, and that doesn’t stand out as great or terrible.

What stands out is that the only option for reaching out and contacting Lotto Social is an online form in the help center. There’s no phone number or a physical address that you can go to if you have particular questions.

It’s not exactly clear how much time is needed for the Lotto Social team to get back to you in the event of an issue.

Other Bits and Pieces

LottoSocial.com offers a special of 60 EuroMillions ticket lines plus raffle tickets for the special price of £9. But surfing around on the net, our team tripped on several sites that offer vouchers and coupons for a variety of different special offers ranging from £3.99 down to £1. These all involve registering on one of those sites that send you coupons regularly for a variety of products.

Then there are the time frame promotions. Play for a full consecutive four weeks, spending a minimum of £18, and players are entered into a draw for a £300 Amazon or an iPad in the form of a voucher. Players will be notified within 30 days and then have 30 days to claim their prize. Play at Lotto-social for sixty days, and players get a voucher for a car competition for a BMW, Audi, or Lotus. Pay ninety days continuously, and you get a cash-back of 15%. This can take up to 45 days to process.

One final thing you need to understand is the fact that Lotto Social has an affiliate program.

This means that people or companies who refer new customers will get paid for each referral. As a result, many of the positive Lotto Social reviews you’ll find online will be created by people who have a financial interest in getting you to sign up.

Would you mind rating LottoSocial.com?

The Bottom Line at LottoSocial.com

When we first opened up this site, the team thought cool – a straightforward syndicate with clear rules and regulations. One big question remains, however – why are there so many vouchers, coupons and different discounts being offered to get people to register? The conclusion is they want your info for their clients. We’re not saying the syndicates are not legit, but we do wonder what else you are going to end up with.

Pros:

Simple concept

User-friendly website design

Allows for international signups

There is a convenient mobile app

Multiple syndicates

A good choice of international lotteries

Cons:

Tons of negative customer reviews

People complain they’ve been incapable of unsubscribing and stopping automatic payments

The website features numerous offers and discounts that seem to be somewhat fishy and sketchy

An affiliate program makes information about Lotto Social online untrustworthy

This site gets a thumbs down not because it’s not real, but because of the way it is presented. If you’re looking for syndicates and online gameplay opportunities, the chances are that you’ll come across much better options out there.
