LottoLeader is owned and operated by Gretel Services Ltd. The clearing services are provided by Wiwine services ltd., located at 27 Old Gloucester St. London-England. You can contact them by the UK phone number +44-20-37697136, by email email@example.com or by online form. LottoLeader.com provides online access to 11 international lotteries and 1 Spanish raffle. The LottoLeader website is available in 2 languages: English and Russian.
Lottoleader.com looks pretty straightforward and offers eleven international lottery games: US Powerball, Mega Millions & New York Lotto, EuroMillions, EuroJackpot & UK Lotto, Canadian 6/49, Spanish La Primitiva, El Gordo & BonoLoto and Italian SuperEnalotto. The lottery players can play single tickets or a group play.
Games at Lottoleader
Playing single games seems fairly straightforward, though there is a minimum purchase of three ticket lines. Lottoleader offers a bunch of discounts for consecutive draw plays with the largest discount on their flat subscription. Digging into the small print in the terms and conditions, this means a minimum of six months. They do say a player can opt-out as long as they give “at least 5 business days prior to the next monthly cycle”. The problem is there is no information on whether players can get out before the whole six months.
Lottoleader’s Group Play
As I have already mentioned, LottoLeader offers not only a single play, but a group plays either. That’s good! The minor issue is their group play is a syndicate of 50 lines with 150 shares. That’s one ratio I’m not comfortable about. Players can opt for more shares but still, I get into syndicates to max tickets (sorry, but it’s my personal opinion).
Bonuses and Discounts at Lottoleader.com
LottoLeader offers a “Happy Hour” promotion, but it’s not clear how it works. Players also get a free ‘participation’ each time they refer a friend. Lottoleader’s VIP bonus system earns players 1 point per dollar/euro spent to earn discounts. These range between 2% (starting at 251 points) up to 9% (over 5,000 points) in their “Platinum” category plus players get 4 free Mega Millions tickets. Ah, but they don’t say if this is a one-off or each time tickets are purchased. So, this information should be clarified.
Winning and Getting Your Money
Lottoleader claims they charge only a handling fee for each ticket purchase, but their TOS clearly says that
“for lottery winnings above the total sum of 10,000€ (Ten Thousands Euros), the client will be charged by the company (LottoLeader) 10% as participation fees. This amount will be directly deducted from your winnings. No additional hidden costs of fees will be charged.”
There is a minimum of €20 for withdrawals and they do deduct any charges incurred to make the transfer.
Lotto Leader and Customer Service
Lottoleader.com is operated by Wiwine Services Ltd. out of the UK with an email (firstname.lastname@example.org ) & snail mail address, and phone number (+44-20-37697136). Oh, and they have an online form that they say they will try and respond within six hours. Well, it wasn’t six hours, but they did respond fairly quickly.
The Bottomline at Lottoleader.com
We found nothing that indicates that LottoLeader is not a legit website. This lottery service is very young – it operates for only 9 months and it definitely deserves a chance.
Single and Group Play
Good Customer Service
Shares versus Tickets!
Lottoleader.com gets a reserved thumb up. I hope it would offer more lotteries in the near future. If anyone has played here, can you please tell us about their bonuses on pool participation?
