Lottoland launches ‘P.A.R.E.N.T’

By | News, Press Releases | No Comments

An Educational ‘Youth Gaming’ Awareness Program for Teachers, Parents and Children

Department for Education, teachers, parents and more stand united for new campaign

 

A new campaign devised by Lottoland, in conjunction with Government education officials in Gibraltar, has been launched to help mitigate the risks posed by online gaming trends among young people today.

 

Lottoland’s P.A.R.E.N.T initiative will support parents, educators and youth representatives across the board to educate, inspire and empower young people to not only stay safe online but also strike a balance between ‘online’ and ‘offline’ following its official launch in Gibraltar this week.

 

Designed to help all those involved in youth gaming ‘stay on their game’ with regards to online risks, the scheme is being rolled out in conjunction with Gibraltar’s Department for Education following initial consultation with teachers, NGOs and other stakeholders based locally.

 

Nigel Birrell, CEO at Lottoland, said: “Focus group discussions held at the University in Gibraltar helped us create a forum of people crucial in bringing this scheme to life, and the response we have had has been incredibly positive.

 

“Together, we will provide young people today with the resources they need to ensure they are empowered to ‘switch off’ when they need to, and ‘switched on’ enough to enjoy all that online gaming has to offer with the self-awareness required to stay safe and sound at all times.”

 

Focusing on six key behaviours essential for responsible gaming, discussions held ahead of the campaign’s launch during Responsible Gaming Week (Nov 1 – 7) have led to plans for teachers to work with parents and help them get their children to ‘Switch off to Switch on’.

 

These six key areas are:

 

P – Parent

A – Awareness

R – Responsibility

E – Environment

N – Nurture

T – Trust

 

As such, PARENT scheme training sessions, delivered by Young Gamblers Education Trust, for primary and secondary teachers will begin in early 2019, subject to further conversation with Government education officials.

 

Evidence from programmes rolled out in Gibraltar will then also be used to launch PARENT in other countries through the European Lotto Betting Association, of which Lottoland is a founding member.

 

The campaign otherwise comes after Lottoland researchers* also found:

 

  • Almost half the nation’s children enjoy unlimited time online each day – and 1 in 5 have access to online games without any restrictions in place at all.
  • Children’s online gaming habits cost the average UK parent £31 in charges – a third of whom are unaware of the costs due to them until it is time to pay
  • Almost one in five (18%) parents with children aged 7-16 in the UK do not know you can play games with other users live over the internet.
  • More than a quarter of UK parents with children aged 16 or younger admit to knowing ‘none’, ‘very few’ or only ‘some’ of their online friends.  
  • Half of all UK youngsters spend up to four hours a day online in the school holidays – and almost twice the amount of time on average that they do in term time.

 

Lee Willows, Chief Executive, YGAM says ‘It is a pleasure to be working alongside Lottoland to deliver this important new campaign. The insight from OnePoll paints a similar picture to what parents tell us in England and in response, YGAM has now developed a suite of resources aimed specifically at teachers and parents. In line with the message from the UK Gambling Commission, we believe empowering both with timely and relevant material so they can have conversations with their children around gaming is important. This launch is timely during Responsible Gambling Week and we are looking forward to working with Lottoland and the Department for Education to create awareness year round and take this important campaign to other jurisdictions.’

 

Although not directly involved in the delivery of social gaming, Lottoland’s commitment to the promotion of responsible behaviour online is one the company takes extremely seriously. As a leading online betting site based in Gibraltar, introduction of the PARENT scheme is just one of many ways in which the company seeks to provide ongoing support to the community around it.

 

Nigel Birrell added: “Industry operators often focus inside our businesses when it comes to helping and supporting our customers, and rightly so – we have to tick all the right boxes and above all be responsible operators.”

 

“Research shows that issues can start from a much younger age than amongst those players simply aged 18 or older, however, and Lottoland felt strongly that we could and should be doing more in the countries we operate in.”

 

“PARENT is a pioneering venture which will equip parents, teachers and others involved in the care and education of young people today with the awareness, control and responsibility they need to successfully navigate today’s online gaming environment, both in Gibraltar and hopefully worldwide too,” he said.

LOTTOLAND PAYS OUT WORLD RECORD €90 MILLION THROUGH ITS INDUSTRY LEADING INSURANCE MODEL

By | Press Releases | No Comments
  • This is the biggest online win to have ever been paid by a gaming company
  • Lottoland pays out major wins through its insurance company Fortuna Insurance
  • Lottoland is the first and only company in the gaming sector to have established its own insurance company

Leading online lotto operator, Lottoland, has announced that a lucky winner in Germany scooped Friday’s (1st June 2018) EuroJackpot top prize of €90 million, which is the equivalent to £79 million.

This win is the largest prize pay-out for any online gambling company in the world, and the biggest pay-out for Lottoland in its five-year history.

The prize funds will be paid out through Lottoland’s industry leading insurance model, where its subsidiary, Fortuna PCC, uses a series of financial instruments including Insurance Linked Securities and collateralised re-insurance to guarantee top prizes.

Fortuna was established in September last year, and is regulated by Financial Services Commission (FSC) in Gibraltar and EIOPA (European Insurance and Occupational Pensions Authority).

Lottoland is the only gaming company to have established its own insurance company – holding itself up to the highest standard with regards to industry best practice and transparency.

Lottoland’s tried and tested risk management structure has already made several multi-millionaires, but this record breaking win eclipses them all.

The winner Christina, a 36-year-old cleaner from Berlin, had put a bet on the EuroJackpot jackpot via her mobile. Her mother chose the five lucky numbers (14, 19, 21, 30, 32) and the two Euro numbers (4 and 7) which matched and bagged her this record breaking win.

She must be one of the luckiest Lottoland players on record as she only registered on her mobile two weeks ago, won €8.60 on her first bet and then the life changing jackpot the following week.

On her big win, she said “I’ve always wanted to travel and visit new countries and places – the USA has always been at the top of my list and now I can plan a trip from the East to the West coast in a camper van. I can’t wait!”

Lottoland CEO Nigel Birrell called the win a ‘landmark’ moment for the online gaming industry: “More and more players from around the world are waking up to the fact that they can bet on the biggest jackpots the world has to offer at Lottoland.”

“This record €90 million win is a break-through moment both for our business and the industry as a whole, as it is the largest jackpot pay-out ever across the online gaming and lotto industry. We look forward to breaking more records in the future.”

Lottoland allows players to bet on the world’s biggest lotteries, with the opportunity to win the same prizes – including the jackpot. Major draws available at Lottoland include US PowerBall and US MegaMillions, EuroMillionaire, Spain’s El Gordo and many more from Europe and across the globe.

The Gibraltar Chronicle

Gibraltar-based Lottoland has paid out £79m to a winner in Germany, in what it described as “the biggest pay-out ever” by an online gaming company.

The winner took the EuroJackpot top prize of 90 million euros.

“This win is the largest prize pay-out for any online gaming company in the world, and the biggest pay-out for Lottoland to date,” the company said in a statement.

The winner, Christina, a 36-year-old cleaner from Berlin, had put a bet on the EuroJackpot jackpot via her mobile.

Her mother chose the five lucky numbers (14, 19, 21, 30, 32) and the two Euro numbers (4 and 7) which matched and bagged her record breaking win.

“She must be one of the luckiest Lottoland players on record as she only signed up to Lotto-land two weeks ago via her mobile, she won EURO8.60 on her first bet and then the life changing jackpot the following week,” Lottoland said.

The Berliner found out she had won while working on her late cleaning shift.

She is now going to quit her job, allow her mother to retire and hire a motor-home which she will drive from the East to West coast of America.

The trip will culminate in a Backstreet Boys concert, although she has to get her driving licence before she does that which is something she hasn’t been able to afford to do before.

“I’ve always wanted to travel and visit new countries and places the USA has always been at the top of my list and now I can plan a trip from the East to the West coast in a camper van,” Christina said of her win.

OXFORD MOTHER OF THREE WINS £100,000 – JUST TWO HOURS AFTER DOWNLOADING LOTTOLAND APP

By | Press Releases | No Comments

May 2018

Marianne Oliveria, a mother of three from Oxford, downloaded the Lottoland app last week and placed a bet on the results of the Polish KeNow lottery – and within two hours, she found herself £100,000 richer.

The 28-year-old from Oxford recently got a new phone and decided to download the Lottoland app on her new handset. As soon as she did, she placed a £5 bet on Lottoland’s KeNow game. KeNow is a draw which is held every four minutes and gives players a chance to win up to 15 times an hour.

Marianne chose 10 random numbers out of a possible 70 and scooped a £100,000 prize. Speaking of the win, Marianne said: “This amount of money is a lot for me and my family. Like many families, money is tight and winning this amount means that I can spoil my children rotten.

“I’d decided to re-install the Lottoland app and just thought I’d have a go at KeNow while I was looking through it. A few hours later I saw that I had won £100,000 by spending just £5 on the bet. I still can’t believe it.”

Marianne added: “We are looking forward to spending the money on a new home and basically enjoying it with our family.

“I’m amazed that a quick download and flutter on Lottoland can have a such a life changing effect on our family.”

The more numbers you choose on KeNow the bigger the potential prize money. As well as KeNow, and other games such as PowerBall and LottoPlus, Lottoland has launched EuroMillionaire GO! This new game offers players the chance to win huge jackpots that match the underlying Euromillions draw every hour, or – if they don’t match any numbers – get their money back.

EuroMillionaire GO! is now available at www.lottoland.co.uk with more GO products to be launched over the coming months.

A LOTTO REVOLUTION: LOTTOLAND LAUNCHES HOURLY DRAW GAMES WITH JACKPOTS UP TO £160 MILLION

By | Press Releases | No Comments

23rd April 2018

Leading online lotto operator, Lottoland has today launched a revolutionary new range of lotto jackpots called “GO!” – a brand new product, offering players a chance to win huge jackpots every hour.

The first GO! product is EuroMillionaire GO! – a game in the familiar and popular 5/50 plus 2/12 format. The jackpot of EuroMillionaire GO! will match the EuroMillions jackpot, so prizes can reach £160 million. The current jackpot is at a HUGE £121 million. The big difference is that Customers can win Lottoland’s jackpot every hour, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

For just £2.50, players can bet on this draw and – best of all – if they don’t match any numbers, Lottoland will give them their money back! The money back guarantee isn’t an offer nor a promotion, but a fundamental change after introducing a new “match no numbers” prize tier.

The second GO! product 6 / 49 GO! is based on the classic and much loved 6 out of 49 draw, with a jackpot that follows the German Lotto 6aus49 jackpot which can climb to over £25 million and can be won when a player’s bet matches all six numbers and the ‘super number’. For just £1 players can bet on this exciting new draw, which also offers players a chance to win on ten different prize tiers. Alongside 6/49 GO!, Lottoland has also launched three additional bonus games – Lucky 7s, Super6 and Monthly Moolah – all of which increase your chances of winning every hour.

EuroMillionaire GO! is now available at www.lottoland.co.uk , and will soon be followed by 6 /49 GO!

Lottoland is able to expand its portfolio with high jackpot GO! products thanks to its innovative Random and insured Number Generator (RiNG™). RiNG™ allows customers to win huge jackpots instantly – with the prizes being insured through Lottoland’s own insurance infrastructure, which is regulated by the Financial Services Commission (“FSC”) in Gibraltar in accordance with EU insurance legislation. Lottoland is the first and only company in the gaming sector to have established its own insurance company – holding itself up to the highest standards with regards to industry best practice and transparency.

Lottoland’s CEO Nigel Birrell said, “Gone are the days of having to wait for a Friday night lottery draw to have a chance of winning a multi-million-pound jackpot. Our players are always on the go so we have developed an instant win product to meet their needs. We know also many people are fed up with traditional lottery matching no numbers week in, week out and having an unrewarding experience. So, the gamechanger for players is our additional “match no numbers” prize tier, stacking the odd’s massively in favour of the player over traditional lotteries. For EuroMillionaire GO! it reduces the odds of any win to 1 in 2.1 which compares to 1 in 13 for the traditional EuroMillions lottery. Lottoland is all about delivering innovation and giving a more rewarding experience so believe strongly players will see the value and convenience of our revolutionary new GO! range.”
