TheLotteryCentre Exposed — Beware of the In-House Game!

TheLotteryCentre Exposed

TheLotteryCentre Review

Would an online lottery provider offering an in-house game for €10,000 be enough to get you to give them your email address? The team took a look at today and it doesn’t seem to matter what lottery you purchase on their site, you’re in on that draw. I can’t even imagine the odds of winning and for me; I’m into playing lotteries for that mega jackpot. If this site seems familiar, the folks who own it also have

Games at

The Lottery Centre offers players 18 international lotteries ranging from three of the big down under (that’s Australia) draws to the usual Euro Millions and US Powerball. Players can choose 1 ticket for 1 game or more – up to 10 games. There are no discounts for playing more. All entries include an automatic bonus into an in-house game for €10,000.

The Lottery Centre’s Syndicates

Some of the lotteries offered here have syndicates with various terms, though two things seem consistent. Firstly, players buy in for 4 weeks. Secondly, there is no information on how many shares are actually in the syndicates. Some of the syndicates have bonus tickets for other draws, but only if the jackpot prize is won. All of the syndicates offer that automatic entry into the in-house game for €10,000.

What’s with the In-House Game

It all starts when you go to’s site. A window pops up right from the start, asking you to input your name and email address – and agree to receive “email communications” from The Lottery Centre. The in-house game takes place on the 31st of December and could be travel or merchandise though they do so say you can take it in cash. There is an inference that there might be more than one prize, but no additional information.

Where’s My Money?

According to, they don’t take any commission on winnings, but they can take any “reasonable costs”. I’m also still trying to get my head around the use of the term “any recovery may take a significant period of time”. The team figured it means you might be waiting and waiting for your winnings.

Customer Service at TheLotteryCentre

Their call center is in Vancouver, Canada, their processing center is in the Netherlands and their corporate office is in the Isle of Man. There is a snail mail address for the Isle of Man and several email addresses. There is a heap of toll-free and other telephone numbers for all kinds of countries. But if you’re not using a toll-free number, all calls are for Vancouver. is owned by International Multi-Media Entertainments Limited.

Good Causes at

Under the menu “Good Causes”, the Lottery Centre says their “plans have been announced for further development” of their sponsored Akili School Project in Nairobi Kenya. This is back in 2013 with no further information. Then they list some of the projects that the actual lotteries support under the guise of what your money is doing. I’m not sure why they wasted the time and space on this.

Is TheLotteryCentre Legit?

At face value, no alarm bells ring to stop you from playing here, but there was something familiar with the list of telephone numbers. It took a while and the telephone numbers are not the same, but the list itself of where they have toll-free and other numbers is a duplicate for – with the only number for international dialing in Vancouver.

We’re giving this one a thumbs down simply because of the threat of having to agree to receive email communications. That and the fact we might be waiting on end for our mega jackpot!

  1. This is 100% a scam they send you gifts at Christmas to keep you thinking you’re getting somewhere they rang me told me I won some money just need to send them some more Rob a bank if I have to get the funds they said keep clear everyone please cowboys

  2. I continued to play lotto with this company even though their reviews from Customers are not great. I must have been playing for at least 25 years,
    Since they were registered with the isle of Wight gambling commission. However, they have had to take their website down Because there was an investigation going on as to why they said they were registered with UK gambling commission which I reported over a year ago.
    The website cannot be currently accessed from UK gives a phone number for those whom want to play to call However it rings out@out.
    Some of the numbers on the letters of play confirmation Now don’t work which before their website was removed they did work.
    They called me 8 times I one night a few days ago. Calling to renew my Subscriptions.
    I Spoke with a Person called Patricia last night whom is not very good or professional over the phone which previously I did report But she is still there.
    She was stuttering @stumbling as she has before I asked her how much I had in my account She said 40p I said well that’s funny because a few nights back I phoned I had £4. she said just a minute please put me on hold then says £4.50 In your account, Then changed it to a mear 28p. Patricia did not seem to know where she was, I asked her where my account manager was She said you have just missed her She went home half an hour ago,
    Well that’s funny because she advised me she was working from Home.
    With removal of their website to date in the UK, to date. Alarm bells are now ringing..after 25 years of play So I thought. I will wait for my Subscriptions to expire which I don’t believe are real in the 1st place @wrap it up with this company. Because any questions you ask they don’t know the answer too @ are perplexed on asking.@ their numbers from UK bar one have now ceased to work.
    I have yet to see one positive review about this Company.
    I dare not even begin to think about how much money they have had from myself over the last 25 years. I just have to let it go and move on I guess.

  3. Found out today they have scammed my dad. He answered a cold call from them, and they must have persuaded him to sign up to a monthly direct debit. When I saw the letters come through the post for them, I was suspicious, and went over it all with my dad. In two months they have drained his account, starting with £8, then £96, then £1500. He had no idea. They prey on elderly people, get their bank details, and then ruin them. I am just thankful I am here to help my dad out, or he would not have money to pay for food. And all this during the pandemic. This ‘company’ is run by monsters.

    • Hi, I’ve just found out the same has happened to my dad today, how did you cancel this as google puts the website as unsafe so won’t let me open to find out contact details. Thanks

  4. These individuals are scammers!!! They seem to particularly prey on the elderly and those with savings and spare time indoors to receive their constant stream of harassing phone calls. I would estimate that my elderly father has spent thousands of pounds with them over many years and ‘won’ only minuscule amounts in return for his large investment. They seem to be based in Canada and it is disgrace that Canadian legislators have permitted them to operate for so many years.

  5. Well this company’s isle of man licence has been surrendered and now has a licence in a little island in the caribbean where the laws are more relaxed it also had a sister company which has had it’s licence suspended by the UK it is all over the internet. I would not use this company. If you want to bet on the lotto use someone like lottoland which is a properly regulated company based in Gibraltar which also has a UK licence. Would you give a stranger in the street, money to put a bet on for you? No, because how would you find him if you won. Same principle here.
