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. I have been playing hear for years. But Suspicious of legitimacy of this company. Operators not trained properly neither do they speak good English. They state they are registered with the UK gambling commission. However, when I contacted the UK gambling commission it would appear they could find no record of them being registered.
    Why are they misleading their customers?
    2nd confirmations do not always arrive on time often chasing them up. I use to play on line But they removed the visa debit function so unless they reinstate it I cannot play on line. When I phoned about this staff had no idea as to why this was. Yet they can still take a payment over the phone using visa debit but i have to phone first. They do not appear to have that many Customer review and the ones they do have are not that of a legit company. They are registered with the isle of white gambling commission but not hear, Could be there okay but there not that professional in dealing in matters of customer Service at all. I have kept my conversations with them that actually come up as the lottery guild which was its former name. You cannot make a complaint to UK gambling commission hear because they say they’re not registered. However you can report what you see on there website like the video that is n there stating they are registered with UK gambling commission. isle of white gambling commission say they cannot deal with queries from the UK. So there is no way to complain directly to date other than to the company themselves. at. Good Luck, For a legit company their customer reviews are poor, So play at your own risk

  2. Complete and utter scam took my fathers life savings over a long period
    He is a vulnerable elderly man and has lost his life savings
    Absolutely scum

  3. Have paid out a considerable amount over 5 years and “won” supposedly some $900 which I was persuaded to put into the next batch, have never received a penny myself
    The agent is VERY persuasive!! (James) even tho as a pensioner I was simply foolish and should have known better

  4. Complain to where they have a licence, think it is the Gambling Commission in the UK and the Isle of Man. They are not allowed to take advantage of vulnerable people of a certain age and they will give you a refund. A friend of mine was able to get all the money back his father had paid to either this company or one with a similar name. Remember when it comes to gambling the consumer is highly protected especially if they have been encouraged to bet.

  5. Found my father in law was having as much as £450/month taken by these guys – far, far more than he thought he was spending. He’d signed up to a number of these, they’ve pushed for more and more things to sign up for, do ‘responsible gambling here’ even if tickets are bought, but despite spending at a minimum several thousand through them, if not into tens of thousands, the most he’s had back was mostly a few euros, once a few hundred dollars, with more going out than coming in every single month for at least 4 years. When I saw the amounts going out – literally my in-laws entire life savings have gone to these guys, I was astonished. They’re not a responsible operator – even if selling lottery tickets they shouldn’t be pushing a pensioner to sign up to more and more (basically trying to sell him a new option weekly), but the lack of results being sent out, range of countries involved, complete lack of any (net positive) wins over such an extended period and amount of supposed lottery tickets bought make me think they’re either not buying the tickets or their ‘reasonable costs’ are the majority of the money and any tickets are a fraction of the amount being taken. They look very much like scammers preying on vulnerable people and milking them for amounts they can’t even afford.
