Service lets you play 40+ state and national lotteries


When I was in Europe a few years ago, I took a chance on Italy's national lottery thinking that beginner's luck just might break my way. I left country without a suitcase full of euros and figured that was the last I would see of any foreign lottery.

But last week I discovered theLotter, an online service and mobile app that lets people follow lottery results and purchase tickets for state and national lotteries around the world. More than 40 lotteries are listed at the theLotto.

Maybe you've heard about Australia's 9-number Oz lottery? How about the Dupla Sena in Brazil, Hong Kong's Mark Six or the Lucky Money game from Florida? They are all listed at theLotter.

The list of available lotteries includes national lotteries from Mexico, Sweden, Ukraine, Turkey, South Africa, among others. The service says it plans to add more lotteries from Germany, Belgium, Finland and Ireland.

The service uses a network of local offices around the world to purchase and hold lottery tickets for theLotter's customers. Players can see a scanned image of their tickets in their accounts and get an email and text message when they have a winner. Players who score secondary winnings will have the money deposited in their accounts.

theLotter's fee to purchase and hold tickets in built into the price of the ticket. You can play for as little as $2.50 or spend more than $100, depending on the number of lines and numbers you select. A ticket with three lines in the Spanish La Primivita lottery costs $10.60. A three-line ticket for the EuroJackpot costs $16.05. theLotter also lets you join syndicates where you can pool your money with groups of players.

In addition to theLotter website, the service also has mobile apps for the iPhone, iPad and Android devices. Check out the video below for more details on how theLotter works.
