The Player’s Lottery is a wholly online game so there is no televised show to watch. The draws are also not weekly occurrences and can take place at any time once all 300,000 tickets are sold for each draw.
This could mean issues with checking the results, but thankfully as you have to register your details with the Player’s Lottery, they will let you know when a draw has taken place so you can see if you’re a winner.
Unlike other lottery draws the Player’s Lottery is a Raffle style lottery which means one ticket is guaranteed to win each draw. Match the correct symbol on the P line, and then the correct numbers on the L, A, Y, E, R lines and you win the jackpot.
The Player’s Lottery results are decided via a wheel, very similar to a slots wheel, with six reels, one for each letter of the word, as the reels roll in, the Player’s Lottery results are decided.
How to Play:
Ticket prices for the Player’s Lottery range from €5 up to €10,000 and, as the ticket price increases, so do the amount of selections you receive, increasing your overall chances of winning a prize.
As the Player’s Lottery is a raffle style lottery there are no numbers to select, unlike other lottery draws around the world. Your lottery selections will be made up of one symbol – a rocket, planet, or stars – and then five numbers, each between 0 and 9. So one selection may look like this Star08834.
Winnings on the Player’s Lottery are paid from left to right, the symbol first, and players win cash prizes for four, five or six correct selections from left to right. In other words, if you haven’t matched the symbol, you’re out instantly. Prizes for the online draw are fixed, so you don’t have to wait to see what you have won and, as there is a guaranteed winner each draw, there are no rollovers. Draws only take place once all 300,000 tickets are sold; with the odds of winning the jackpot always remaining the same at 1 in 300,000 for one ticket, 1 in 150,000 for two tickets and so forth.
The Player’s Lottery is an online lottery draw that is available to lottery players all around the world, providing each player is over 18 and in a legal jurisdiction where playing online games for money is permitted.
The game is operated by Titan Gaming and it is based in Malta, where, for your security, it is fully licensed by the Malta Lotteries and Gaming Authority. UK TV celebrity, Carol Smillie is the face of the Player’s Lottery, appearing on their official website and in their game and instruction videos.
As its charitable gesture, the Player’s Lottery runs the Player’s for Humanity Foundation and it promises to give substantial amounts of money to charities around the world. Players can also make their own donations to the chosen charities via the Player’s Lottery website.
If you use the ‘share the wealth’ option on the Player’s Lottery website and you introduce your friends and family to the draw then you could win an extra prize. Introduce your friends and the Player’s Lottery will pay you €100,000 if one of them is lucky enough to win the jackpot. The Lottery also runs €50,000 introductory draws for new players so you get even more chances to win when you play without the need to buy any extra tickets.
As the Player’s Lottery is online there’s no worry about keeping tickets safe, signing them, or checking the results, it’s all done electronically through the online lottery system.
The draw won’t take place until all the tickets are sold so you don’t have the bother and hassle of checking the results each week. Once all of the tickets are sold, ticket sales will be closed and lottery players will be informed of the draw. This allows players to log on and watch the draw, which is where you will find out if you need to make a claim for a Player’s Lottery prize. After the draw a full list of winners will be posted on the website. Each Player’s Lottery draw is verified and witnessed by an official from the Malta Lotteries and Gaming Authority, offering you peace of mind that the game is fair.
Smaller prizes will be paid instantly but the jackpot winner must be verified. Once it has been confirmed that the winning player is from a legal jurisdiction and that they are over 18 years of age, winnings will be transferred from the Player’s Lottery to the winner.
