Lottoland Pays Out World Record Online Win

By 08.06.2018 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.”
