Online lottery betting leader reaffirms its alleigance to ‘The Rock’ in the wake of UK’s decision to leave the EU

Gibraltar June 28th – 2016


Lottoland has responded to Friday’s BREXIT result by emphatically declaring its intention to stay in Gibraltar.

The decision to leave the EU came as a blow for the British Overseas Territory, after 96% of voters in Gibratar came out in favour of the remain camp.

Gibraltar is home to many of the world’s leading e-gaming and sports betting firms and is seen as a worldwide hub for the industry.

Lottoland, which specialises in offerring customers the chance to win the world’s biggest lottery jackpots, arrived in Gibraltar just over 3 years ago and has enjoyed huge success since, attracting nearly 4 million players.

Lottoland CEO, Nigel Birrell, said, “We began operating from Gibraltar in May 2013 and it has been the perfect base for our business, providing an excellent platform for our success.

“Last Friday’s result does not change our firm commitment to staying here.

“We’ve built a strong, cosmopolitan team of talented professionals from around the globe who enjoy working here and we’re actively looking to grow that team.

“Our business is thriving and the benefits of staying in Gibraltar remain very strong indeed.”

Lottoland is currently recruting for a wide range of roles at its head offices in Gibraltar’s Ocean Village Marina development, currently home to over 160 staff.

In just over three years the company has grown to become the world’s largest online lottery betting offering.

Lottoland offers its players the opportunity to bet on the world’s biggest jackpots for the same prizes, including the jackpot. There’s an extensive portfolio of draws available to bet on including EuroMillions, US MegaMillions, US PowerBall, Spain’s El Gordo, 5 draws from Australia, Irish Lotto and a host of other lotteries from across Europe and beyond.
