OneLotto is an online lottery provider for 15 lotteries from Greece (whoops), Ireland, Spain, the UK, and the USA. Has anyone here ever played Greek Joker? The rest of the games you’ll recognize – yes including US Powerball & Mega Millions, and EuroMillions. Ardua Ventures (UK) Ltd. owns and operates OneLotto.com and has been around since 2008 with its original site Lottery-Millions.co.uk. Okay, let’s take a look.
Games at Onelotto.com
Onelotto.com provides access for players to play 15 lottery games from Europe and the United States. Yes, the big jackpots are there. Some lotteries players can choose one or more ticket lines. Some lotteries players must play a minimum of two ticket lines. You can use your favorite numbers or click on “Lucky Pick.” Chose ten lines and players get a free ticket. This is a site for individual tickets and not syndicates.
Five lucky players won £100 free credit play. The only thing – it seems it has only been drawn once, there is no information on when it will happen again, and there are no rules and regulations on how it can be used. Live Chat did finally confirm that it must be used for further play and cannot be withdrawn but then said ignore this promotion as they don’t have any info on when it will happen again. It started the team wondering what else they say that should be ignored.
The multi-draw play offers discounts on subscriptions with four weeks/5%, eight weeks/10%, twenty-six weeks/15% and fifty-two weeks/20% off. Deal of the day is about to buy ten tickets and get a free ticket. Okay, we already knew that from the lottery play sites. I guess it does still count as a promotion.
Privilege Club at One Lotto
There are five levels of OneLotto’s Privilege Club: Bronze (5%), Silver (10%) Gold (15%), Platinum (20%) and Diamond (25%) with each point given to each dollar spent. The level is based on a player’s activity starting at Bronze (minimum 51 points). Player levels are updated at the beginning of each month. There are the usual thresholds, but I’m not sure I’d want to know that I am a Platinum member because I’ve spent more than USD 7,500! But then that’s a personal issue. There is also no information on whether the points system is adjusted for playing in Euros or Great Britain Pounds.
One More Thing at OneLotto
The one other issue is the fact that the only way to find out what a ticket line costs as the base price is by logging in. There is an amount shown on each lottery 5.95 in €, £ or $ depending on the lottery game.
Winning that Jackpot
The most important thing to note is that OneLotto charges no commissions on winnings. They do say that they will contact you immediately regarding getting any jackpot win and that OneLotto “may” choose to pay your travel expenses to collect the win in person. OneLotto also says that if they contact you for big wins and you do not respond within 15 days, they will credit the amount directly to your account. I’m not sure what this is versus, but I guess that means any wins are put into your account.
OneLotto.com’s Customer Service
Customer service offers a heap of telephone numbers for places all over the world, including a toll-free number for the UAE. They say that their UK number is available 24/7 though no time frames for the other ones. There is also an email address and live chat. Their snail mail address is in Birmingham, United Kingdom and they are ‘governed’ by the laws of England and Wales.
The Bottom Line
With all the different discounts and Privilege Club (and lack of info on the actual ticket price), the team tried to figure out what a ticket would cost if purchased for 52 weeks (20% off), with say a Silver Privilege Club discount of 10% and buying ten tickets at a time so a free ticket. We gave up. It was too complicated.

What Does It Cost to Play
No Syndicate Options
This site gets a reserved thumbs up. It looks legit, and these guys have been in business since 2008. I think there has got to be an easier way to offer promotions and discounts.
