WLS4YOU is an online provider that acts as a messenger service purchasing your lottery tickets internationally. There are eight lotteries to choose from for straight ticket line play. There are no syndicates or group play. WLS seems fairly straightforward but is that the case? Let’s go take a look.
Games at Wls4You.com
There are the usual big lotteries to play including Powerball, Mega Millions, EuroMillions, EuroJackpot, El Gordo, German Lotto, La Primitiva, and SuperEnalotto. Weird – that in their results page they also mention Florida Lotto though it doesn’t appear to be available. Players can choose 1 ticket or more for 1, 2, 3, 5, 6, 8 and 10 draws. There are no discounts for multi-playing. There are no subscriptions or syndicates. They buy your tickets for you in the respective country, scan, and store.
Getting Your Winnings at WLS
Winnings below US $600 are claimed by Wls4You.com and put straight into your account. Winnings US $600 or more may be claimed by them and are paid directly into your bank account. Bank fees can apply. WLS says the winnings might have to be claimed by you depending on the rules and regulations of the specific lottery. You also have the option to claim that mega lottery yourself. They say there is no commission involved however the winnings are collected. There is no mention on any costs or fees regarding getting your winnings.
Hang on – What’s This?
Under the Terms & Conditions, Wls4You.com reserves the right to “pay winnings partly or fully in installments at WLS’s sole discretion”. Now that is a strange thing to add to the T&C. The T&C, in general, is pretty weak. Though they offer this site in eleven languages, sadly go to the Terms and Conditions page and it is only available in English. That goes for their FAQ page, though at least how to contact Wls4You.com is explained in multiple languages.
Customer Service at Wls4You.com
If you have questions, World Lottery Service 4 You says they’ll email you or call you back within 24 hours. There are no phone numbers, email or snail mail addresses. You simply leave a message. There is a confirmation email immediately with a registration number. They advertise live chat but that simply opens to a “leave a message” menu. It doesn’t look like anyone is ever at home for an immediate response. There is no information on who these folks are or where they are.
Who Can play at WLS?
The only restriction on who can play is that you must be 18 years or older. It says everyone can play. The account holder is the sole owner of the ticket(s) – except if the ticket is part of a syndicate. Hang on – there aren’t any syndicates offered here. Maybe that’s a plan for the future.
The Bottom Line at Wls4You.com
The bit about having an online chat and then no one there really ticks me off – why bother. Add to this, the fact that there is no info on who these folks are or where they are is enough to stop me right there. Oh and that little bit in the small print under the terms and conditions saying they can pay my winnings to me any way they choose whenever they want.

This site gets a thumb’s down. There is no indication that it’s a scam but there are just too many things missing.
