Lottoland $100k Jackpot Bonus for Sea Eagles

By | Press Releases | No Comments

6th September, 2019 – Fresh off the back of renewing and upgrading their partnership with the Manly Warringah Sea Eagles, Lottoland has come out today confirming that they are putting up an additional $100,000 incentive, should the Sea Eagles go on to win the NRL Grand Final.

“It was great to read that the Wests Tigers major sponsor is offering an extra incentive for them to make the finals and it got us thinking about what we can do over and above our existing partnership with Manly,” said Lottoland Australia Marketing Director, Matthew Brinckley.

“Every day Lottoland offer Australians the chance to win huge Jackpots and we are now excited to give Manly the chance to score a Lottoland Jackpot” Mr Brinckley continued.

“With the Sea Eagles already guaranteed a spot in the finals, we are extremely proud of the club and our partnership so thought putting up an additional $100k jackpot as further incentive to charge on and win the 2019 premiership would be a great show of our support.”

 

Lottoland is already pitching in additional investment through finals bonuses on top of their base sponsorship with the Sea Eagles, whilst the $100,000 now also on offer, should Manly go on to win the Premiership, will provide another nice boost for the Club.

 

“Obviously the team is already focused on going all the way, but this extra financial bonus from our friends at Lottoland just adds another layer of incentive for the Club as a whole,” said Sea Eagles General Manager – Corporate, Luke Tucker.

“Lottoland are great supporters of our Club and we appreciate their willingness to always go over and above what is already a solid partnership together.”

Lottoland has put the additional cash incentive on the table, so now it’s over to the Sea Eagles to go on and win the Premiership.

Lottoland Upgrades Manly Sea Eagles Partnership

By | Press Releases | No Comments

21st August, 2019 – Lottoland, Manly Warringah Sea Eagles Premier Partner, have today increased their existing support and sponsorship of the Club.

In addition to the ongoing naming rights of the Sea Eagles home ground, Lottoland will also now be the official coach partner of the Sea Eagles through until at least the end of season 2020.

The addition of the Coach Partnership to the sponsorship will include Lottoland branding on the apparel of Head Coach Des Hasler and his coaching staff, along with exclusive Lottoland branding of the coaches box.

Lottoland will work with Hasler and his staff to ensure they have the equipment and resources available within the coaches box on game days they need to get the best results on the field.

“We’re delighted to be upgrading our partnership with Manly to now also include the coach partnership with Des and his team. We have always valued both organisations’ contribution to the community and what better community to support than the Northern Beaches” said Lottoland Australia Marketing Director, Mr Matthew Brinckley (pictured)

Lottoland Upgrades Manly Sea Eagles Partnership

“Des has brought everything we love about Manly back to Manly this season and the results have come off the back of the amazing culture and winning attitude he promotes from within.

“We believe our principles in obtaining success are very much aligned. We’re excited to play a role in ensuring the team have everything they need to win a premiership.”

Sea Eagles Head Coach Des Hasler congratulated Lottoland on their increased commitment to the partnership and is looking forward to working even closer with the Premier Partner moving forward as his official coach partner.

“I’m looking forward to working closely with the Lottoland team and we appreciate their ongoing support and proactive approach in increased investment towards our equipment and resources needed to compete at the highest level week in and week out in the NRL,” Hasler said.

Whilst the Sea Eagles are currently now sitting up in the top four and will be looking to hold a top four spot heading into the NRL finals series, the opportunity to host a week one home final at Lottoland, if qualifying fifth or sixth, would certainly be a great way to celebrate Lottoland’s ongoing support and upgrade of sponsorship with the Sea Eagles.

60,000 Australians bet on world’s biggest jackpot at Lottoland

By | Press Releases | No Comments

Due to legislation coming into effect in 2019, we can no longer offer lottery betting and as such some content may no longer be relevant.

October 22, 2018 – US MegaMillions rolled over yet again to a record-breaking USD$1.6 billion (AUD$2.2 billion*) after no one matched all six numbers in Saturday’s jackpot.

It’s now the biggest jackpot in lottery history.

The enormous jackpot surpassed all previous records and has sent punters into a betting frenzy in the past week at Lottoland with over 60,000 Australians realising it could be their last chance to win such mind-blowing amounts with lottery betting set to be banned on January 9th.

Australians are relishing the opportunity to chance their arm on this record jackpot with Lottoland the only legal way that Australians can bet.

Australians betting at Lottoland will have a chance to reach instant billionaire status should their numbers come up on Wednesday’s unprecedented jackpot.

Australians are answering the call of “Who wants to be a billionaire?”  as a sole winner would see an Aussie surpass celebrities such as George Clooney and Beyoncé in regard to net worth.

Lottoland Australia’s CEO Luke Brill said they were in the midst of a “betting frenzy” and had not seen numbers like this since they launched and had 250,000 registrations within 48 hours when the US Power jackpot reached a record $2.1 billion* in January 2016.

Australians have found success at Lottoland in the past with over $40 million paid out in winnings to Aussie punters.

Previous Australian MegaMillions winners at Lottoland include a 56-year-old grandmother of eleven who won AUD$1.3 million and a 32-year-old mother of nine who won AUD$808,000.

Lottoland Germany also recently achieved a Guinness World Record for the world record for biggest online gambling payout with an AUD$137m winner.

The official draw takes place on Wednesday, 24th October, at approximately 2:00pm AEDT.

Results are based on the official US MegaMillions draw, with Lottoland.com.au the provider of the approximate AUD$2.2 billion* prize.

US MegaMillions frenzy spreads like wildfire to Aussies at Lottoland

By | Press Releases | No Comments

Due to legislation coming into effect in 2019, we can no longer offer lottery betting and as such some content may no longer be relevant.

October 16, 2018 – A massive US lottery is set to jackpot to an insane amount of money, and Australians are flocking to Lottoland to get involved.

Queues have started to stretch outside lottery kiosks in the US as punters desperately search for the winning ticket in the estimated USD$654 million (AUD$916m*) draw which takes place on Wednesday AEDT.

Australian online bookmaker Lottoland has already experienced a surge in traffic amid the hype, with their 750,000 Australian customers rushing to get their chance to take home AUD$916 million* should their numbers match those in the MegaMillions draw.

Lottoland Australia’s CEO Luke Brill wasn’t surprised by the frenzy.

“Jackpots like this don’t come around very often, so it’s no wonder that Americans and Aussies alike are in a frenzy to get involved” Mr Brill said.

“Aussies realise they have a limited time to bet on this draw and as such Lottoland Australia has seen a 500% uplift in sales – it’s remarkable really, we really hope an Australian residents’ numbers come up on Wednesday as we certainly have many more entrants this week” Mr Brill continued.

The massive jackpot is earmarked to break the current MegaMillions record as punters purchase tickets at a frenetic pace.

Previous Australian MegaMillions winners at Lottoland include a 56-year-old grandmother of eleven who won AUD$1.3 million and a 32-year-old mother of nine who won AUD$808,000.

Lottoland recently broke the world record for biggest online gambling payout with an AUD$137m winner but should someone’s numbers come up here the payout would drastically eclipse the previous record.

The official draw takes place on Wednesday, 17th October, at approximately 2:00pm AEDT.

Results are based on the official US MegaMillions draw, with Lottoland.com.au the provider of the approximate AUD$916 million* prize.

$919m MegaMillions jackpot set to challenge record book

By | Press Releases | No Comments

Due to legislation coming into effect in 2019, we can no longer offer lottery betting and as such some content may no longer be relevant.

October 15, 2018 – Lottery lovers are in a frenzy after MegaMillions soared to an unprecedented USD$654 million (AUD$919m) over the weekend.

The jackpot rose over USD$100 million after no one claimed Saturday’s USD$548 million (AUD$770m) jackpot.

The estimated USD$654 million (AUD$919m) is the second highest jackpot in the game’s history, just $2 million shy of the record. It would also be the fourth-largest jackpot of all time, with only two Powerball drawings outranking the current MegaMillions records.

The next drawing is on Wednesday October 17th – and there’s a chance the total could inch into a MegaMillions record.

Australian residents aged 18+ (excluding South Australian residents) can bet on the outcome of this lottery at Lottoland and chance their arm on this enormous prize.

Previous Australian MegaMillions winners at Lottoland include a 56-year-old grandmother of eleven who won AUD$1.3 million and a 32-year-old mother of nine who won AUD$808,000.

Lottoland Pays Out World Record Online Win

By | Press Releases | No Comments

Due to legislation coming into effect in 2019, we can no longer offer lottery betting and as such some content may no longer be relevant.

June 8, 2018 – Lottoland Australia CEO, Luke Brill, today announced a Lottoland customer in Germany had scooped a EuroJackpot top prize of €90 million (AU$137 million)—a record for the online gaming industry.

The winner is a 36-year-old cleaner from Berlin, identified at her request only as Christina.

“This is the biggest online gaming win ever, and the biggest payout for Lottoland to date,” Mr. Brill said.

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

Christina had found out she had won while working on her late cleaning shift. She is now planning on quitting her job, allow her mother to retire, and hire a motor-home which she will drive from the East to West coast of the US.

Mr Brill 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,” he added.

“Only this week, I was delighted to announce that one of our customers in Queensland won $1 million from a $1 bet on a Kenoland Draw.

“In the past two years alone, Lottoland Australia has paid out $35 million dollars to winners locally, and we have attracted 700,000 customers who want the opportunity to bet on the biggest and best overseas lotteries in the world.

“But legislation before the Parliament is set to ban online lottery betting, so Australians will no longer be able to win big on overseas lotteries like this week’s winners.

“This legislation is unnecessary and counterproductive and we urge the Government to reconsider its plans.”

Due to legislation coming into effect in 2019, we can no longer offer lottery betting and as such some content may no longer be relevant.

June 4, 2018 – A Lottoland Australia customer has become an instant millionaire, winning $1,000,000 on a Kenoland Draw, company CEO Luke Brill announced today.

“We’re absolutely delighted for Kevin, who is the latest in a long line of customers to win big with Lottoland Australia,” Mr. Brill said.

“Since Lottoland Australia started about 24 months ago, we’ve paid out more than $35 million in winnings to our customers right here in Australia.

“We’ve attracted roughly 700,000 customers in this time, and we continue to grow rapidly because we provide the opportunity to bet on the biggest and best overseas lotteries in the world.” Mr. Brill continued.

The 30-year-old Ipswich customer, who has asked that his real name not be used, had been a registered customer of Lottoland Australia for less than a month before his win. He had decided to “have a little go” and placed his bet of $1 to achieve a prize of $1 million AUD.

Lottoland Australia Here to Stay

By | Press Releases | No Comments

Due to legislation coming into effect in 2019, we can no longer offer lottery betting and as such some content may no longer be relevant.

9th May, 2018 – The Chief Executive Officer of Lottoland Australia, Luke Brill, today vowed the company will continue to deliver choice to its 700,000 Australian punters while the potential legislation on banning betting on overseas lotteries is decided.

Mr Brill said the passing of the Bill by the House of Representatives was not unexpected and represented only the first stage in what is a long process.

He said Lottoland Australia – along with the Newsagents Association of NSW and ACT (NANA), and the Victorian Association of Newsagents (VANA) – would continue to make their case to the major parties and the crossbenches in the Senate to stop the legislation from becoming law over the coming weeks.

“The intention of the legislation is to ban lottery betting, not to ban Lottoland Australia, so, we can assure our 700,000 loyal customers that we are here to stay,” he said.

“Even if the legislation is passed by both Houses, it will not come into force for at least another six months, which means we will continue to offer our Australian customers the chance to bet on the world’s largest jackpots until December.”

Mr Brill said the passing of the legislation by the Lower House went against the wishes of thousands of newsagents across the country, who feared the legislation could create an unprecedented protected monopoly on all lottery betting.

“At a time when newsagents are being held to ransom by Tatts Group, which is now part of Tabcorp, this is a very disappointing outcome for small businesses that are happy to enter into a potentially lucrative revenue-sharing agreement with Lottoland Australia,” he said.

“In fact, the only winner out of this unnecessary and counterproductive piece of legislation is Tabcorp and its recent acquisition Tatts Group, which have fought tooth and nail to ensure they retain their monopoly on lottery betting.

“By their own admission, Tatts Group has spent close to $5 million lobbying the Federal Government to stop organisations such as Lottoland Australia from bringing in some much needed competition into the lotteries market.

“Moreover, it is also a bad day for Australia, potentially depriving the economy of millions which Lottoland is investing, depriving the government of millions of tax dollars, and depriving all Australians of the choice to bet on overseas lotteries.

“At the same time, it is setting a dangerous precedent for successful companies investing in Australia.

“As we remain positive that the Bill will be stopped, we are committed to staying in Australia and will continue to deliver choice to our valued customers.”
