What a riot! If you are a resident of the United Kingdom and have a mobile telephone, you can belong to a syndicate for two lotteries played twice a week. Note the singular use of the word ‘syndicate’. Neverforgetlotto.co.uk offers one syndicate with two lotteries, EuroMillions and UK Lotto. There is no limit to the number of members or the number of tickets. So what’s the story?
Never Forget Lotto’s Games
Players sign up on the online form and then everything else happens through your mobile phone – that’s your UK mobile phone. The weekly buy-in is £2 for a share in Tuesday & Friday’s EuroMillions and Wednesday and Saturday’s UK Lotto. This amount is charged directly to your mobile telephone.
Neverforgetlotto.co.uk purchases one ticket for each draw for every twenty members. Don’t look to play your favorite numbers here. Neverforgetlotto.co.uk uses ‘lucky dips’ (quick picks) for their syndicate (singular, not plural). Ticket numbers are published on their site. There is no way to know how many tickets are involved until the tickets are published. We noted on their 18th July UK Lotto draw, there were 300 tickets which says there are actually 6,000 shares. Even I can do this kind of math. That means if that jackpot had £6 million, each player would get £1,000. Okay, it is winning but according to their site, last week’s winnings were £553.00 which paid out at £0.092 per player.
Winning at Neverforgetlotto
Now if you have won – or think you have won, players are direct to go into neverforgetlotto.co.uk/claim. You might have to be registered already to do this as we just kept coming up with a 404 (page not found) error. You must have a minimum of £10 to make a claim which is collected at the post office. If you’re claiming more than £500, then you need to talk to customer services to make arrangements. There is no information on how long your claim will take or how it will be made available.

Neverforgetlotto.co.uk’s Customer Service
There is a UK phone number, email address, and an online form. There is no snail mail address or live chat. Neverforgetlotto.co. uk is owned and operated by Doing Digital which we think is a UK company though we weren’t able to get any information on them. In checking out customer complaints, the team came across a blog relating to joinnfl.co.uk which is a direct link to Never Forget Lotto. It seems they randomly text people offering a chance to ‘increase’ your chance to winning soliciting you to text back and say ‘yes’. So why do they do it?
Beware the Small Print
Never Forget Lotto is very upfront in their terms and conditions that they are going to share your information! In their own words “By joining Never Forget Lotto the company will send promotional email or SMS marketing from selected third party companies for your consideration…”. They even go so far as to say even if you stop using their syndicate service, that does not cancel you from the marketing and promotional material you are going to continue to receive.
The Bottom Line at Neverforgetlotto.co.uk
If you are a resident of the United Kingdom and have a mobile phone, then £2 a week for a lark could be fun and you could win something – if you are willing to put up with receiving marketing and promotional material. Seriously folks!

How Do I Change My Phone Number?
This site gets a thumbs down. There are a lot of great syndicates out there that provide a better share ratio never mind don’t set you up for receiving heaps of marketing stuff. I’d stick to them.
