7Lotto is an online lottery betting operator that is completely focused on Syndicate – the high odds, but low payouts – lottery games. Its counterpart, Lotto Planets, has a wider variety of games that include single tickets. While mentioning Lotto Planets, it’s also worth mentioning that there’s no clear distinction between the two operator brands and some of the content published on 7 Lottos was actually written for Lotto Planets.
Lotteries and Software
Syndicate is 7 Lottos’ only focus. It offers a pool of tickets to these world lotteries:
- US Powerball
- Euro Jackpot
- Aussie Combo
- 7Lottos Super Combo
- Latin Fiesta
- Global Powerballs
- Global Powerballs Taster
What makes Syndicate popular among lottery players is the opportunity to play multiple lottery lines, sometimes of different lotteries from different countries, for a fraction of the price these tickets would cost. Players come together, with the backing of an online platform, to raise their odds of winning. Naturally, this is at the price of having to share the winnings among shareholders.
Another game that is offered on the website, but seems to be completely broken, is Keno. A game that is usually complementary for lottery players, is just a blank page on 7Lottos.
There are no mobile apps, but the responsive view of the website – how mobile users see it on their smartphone’s browser – is good enough. Texts on the banner image are not clearly readable, which shows a lack of thought and attention. The website’s functionalities work well on mobile and there doesn’t seem to be any major faults.
7Lotto doesn’t offer promotions as setting up the syndicate is attractive by itself – you’re getting the opportunity to bet big without paying anything close to the cost of the lottery lines. Even though having some kind of reward program is a common practice, I wouldn’t be too worried if Syndicate is what I’m after. Selection is decent and share prices are reasonable.
Credit cards and Direct Debit are accepted, and Swedish Krona is the preferred currency as the site’s target audience is Swedish lottery players.
The withdrawal time for winnings is:
- If you win less than €2,500, it will be credited to your account after 7 days.
- If the wins exceed this and are between €2,501 to €1 million, it is normally credited in 15 days.
- In the case of an amount larger than € 1 million, it may take as much as a month or 30 days.
There is, however, no information on minimum withdrawal limit. In terms of tax cuts, the website only mentions that users will have to settle local tax liabilities if there is any.
An FAQ page offers some sort of basic support. But if more personal attention is needed, there are three main channels to reach 7 Lottos’ customer support – Email (firstname.lastname@example.org), Phone(+44-20-3890-2090), and Live Chat during working hours(Monday-Friday, 08:00-16:00 GMT).
Is 7Lotto legit or fraud?
While 7 Lottos raise some suspicion, there’s no clear indication of wrongdoing. The website is far from polished, but this is an indication of carelessness. The website is regulated under its platform by UK’s Gambling Commission and Alderney’s.
It’s hard to see how 7 Lottos has a fighting chance against serious online lottery agents as it doesn’t deliver a good product in the niche it focuses on completely – lottery Syndicates. There’s some work to be done on the website and the brand before it is playable. For the meanwhile, I suggest Swedish and Finnish players find another agent.
