UK Lotto raffleFrom London to Lagos and beyond, UK Lotto raffles are moneymakers. A Nigerian playing from Lagos closed out 2017 with a fantastic win! He won a £20,000 UK Lotto raffle prize playing online with theLotter! Our lucky raffle winner wishes to enjoy his winnings anonymously, which we absolutely understand, so we’ll call him S. We can also call him smart, and lucky, of course, because he chose to play the UK Lotto where every entry counts for both the lottery and raffle draws! Read on and find out how S. won big in the UK Lotto’s supplementary raffle. Also, find out which lotteries on theLotter offer these amazing chances to win serious prizes!

Win UK Lotto Raffles Online

S. is our second UK Lotto raffle £20,000 prizewinner almost a year to the day after Jan from Austria became our first £20,000 raffle prizewinner. Like Jan, S. didn’t match a single number correctly in the lottery draw, but his luck picked up in the raffle where he won his prize.

How do Lottery Raffles Work?

Some lotteries offer a supplemental raffle to give players another chance to win. To understand how these supplemental raffles work, let’s take a look at S.’s winning ticket.

S. played a three-line entry to the UK National Lottery draw on 9 December 2017. For each line he played, he automatically received an additional, unique code for the raffle that takes place alongside the lottery draw. In total, S. had six chances to win, three in the lottery and three more in the raffle! S.’s additional raffle number, AQUA 3201 8851, won £20,000!

It’s always possible that the lottery jackpot will roll over if no one guesses the drawn numbers correctly.

The supplemental raffle draw, however, will always produce a winner. The raffle draw happens immediately after the lottery draw. A winning number is randomly chosen from the codes that were assigned to the purchased tickets. This way, it is guaranteed that there will be a winner.

A raffle winner will never have to share their prize because each assigned code is unique and therefore there will never be two matching codes.

The UK Lotto draw on 9 December 2017 in which S. won his £20,000 raffle prize had a jackpot of £13.9 million, which no one won. However, that same draw awarded one £1 million raffle prize and twenty £20,000 raffle prizes!

Winning Picks: Lotteries With Raffles

theLotter offers five lotteries with raffles, giving players more chances to win!

Holidays and special occasions are always time for celebration and many of these lotteries offer additional raffle prizes to mark the occasion. In addition, most of these lotteries offer monthly special prizes!

Take a Winning Chance

S. has been playing with theLotter since August 2016. He has an Anglo angle to his lottery play, preferring US Powerball and Mega Millions, as well as UK EuroMillions and of course, UK Lotto.

If you’re chasing a big lottery win of your own, you can certainly follow S.’s example and play the UK Lotto with its additional raffle draw. Or, play for the world’s biggest jackpot! The important thing is that you give yourself a chance to win and play the lottery online now!

American Lottery Multipliers – The Ultimate Guide

When you play the lottery, your main aim is to scoop the top prize, especially when we are talking about the American lotto giants Powerball and Mega Millions. But, there are certain features the American lotteries have that make the game wildly exciting, even past the jackpot. The American lottery multipliers certainly make the top of this list. These game enhancers can take your lottery winning to an entirely new level as they can make secondary prizes double, triple, quadruple…or even more. In this article, we are going to tell you all about American lottery multipliers. So, if you thought that the lottery couldn’t get any better, get ready to be surprised!

What Are Lottery Multipliers?

While the exact way multipliers work can be different from one lottery to another, one thing is sure: the role of a multiplier is to boost prizes. The most important thing you need to know about multipliers is that they are drawn separately from the main numbers. This feature is entirely optional, but it can give prizes an immense boost, which makes it an asset to the game.

What Are Lottery Multipliers?

How Do Lottery Multipliers Work?

Not only are lottery multipliers drawn separately, but all you have to do is to opt for this feature when picking your lotto numbers and purchasing the ticket. You do not have to choose the multiplier itself. Its value will be selected during the draw and this will define the prize increase it brings.

The Biggest Lottery Multipliers Out There

While there are several American lotteries to offer the multiplier feature, two of them have spectacular multipliers: the US Powerball, which has the Power Play option, and the US Mega Millions, which has the Megaplier. Read on to find out how to get the most of them, as well as to get acquainted with other American lottery multipliers.

What is the PowerPlay Option?

What is the PowerPlay Option?

Everybody wants to play Powerball for a chance to win the record-breaking jackpot in the game, but there is more to this amazing American lottery than its enormous first prize. From its $1 MILLION second prize and all the way to those hefty second, third, and up to ninth tier prizes, the US Powerball has so many reasons to keep players putting in their tickets. But all of these secondary prizes can get so much bigger with the Power Play multiplier. Let us tell you how! While the Power Play will not boost your odds of winning Powerball prizes, it can certainly boost the value of the prizes you won.

How the PowerPlay Works

  • You choose the Power Play option on your Powerball ticket.
  • During the official Powerball draw, the Power Play multiplier will be drawn from a range of 2 to 5.
  • The drawn multiplier determines how much the prizes are increased.
  • The $1 MILLION second prize can only be doubled for Power Play winners, regardless of the drawn multiplier.
  • The drawn Power Play multiplier will determine the number of times that all other secondary prizes (3rd to 9th tier prizes) are increased.

9 0 + PB $4.00 $8.00 $12.00 $16.00 $20.00

Power Play Winners

With so much at stake, millions of Powerball players go in with the Power Play option. And there have been countless Power Play winners who managed to boost their lottery prizes. But let us tell you about some of them who were lucky enough to match the five main numbers in the Powerball lottery, and who got to raise their prizes from $1 MILLION to a fantastic $2 MILLION.

Bill Aliff of New Castle – 2 MILLION – The New Castle player went to check his Powerball ticket as usual, without having much hope for a win. “I always thought people like me don’t win”, he said. The machine printed out two slips for his ticket. The first said that he couldn’t cash in more than $600 there, and the second said that he needed to go to the local lottery office because he had won a whopping $2 MILLION.

Michael Alston of Virginia Beach – $2 MILLION – Mike work up on Sunday morning and decided to check his Powerball numbers. But while he expected this to be part of his regular routine, he got the biggest surprise of his life. He said he ran upstairs, woke up his wife and they were both stunned to see that they had matched the five winning numbers for the Powerball. And since they went in with the Power Play option, their second prize got as big as $2 MILLION. “It’s something you dream about all your life”, said Michael.

What is the Megaplier?

What is the Megaplier

Do you know all about the Mega Millions lottery? You might think so, but there is also the Megaplier! It works similarly to the Power Play multiplier in the US Powerball. Players who opt to play with the Megaplier have a chance to get a significant boost in the game because they have the chance to increase their secondary prizes tremendously. While the Megaplier does not apply to the Mega Millions, it will increase all the other prizes in the game, including the second prize.

How the Megaplier Works

  • You choose the Megaplier option on your US Mega Millions ticket.
  • The Megaplier will be drawn from a range of 2 to 5 during the official Mega Millions draw.
  • The Megaplier determines how many times the secondary prizes (2nd to 9th tier) are increased.
  • The Megaplier does not apply to the Mega Millions jackpot.

Megaplier Winners

Over the years, there have been numerous Mega Millions winners who have boosted their winnings with the Megaplier option, but we’d like to tell you about some of the biggest ones from the recent years. Their stories will show you just how important it is to tick that Megaplier box!

Gladys Salwedel – $5 MILLION – On October 27th, 2017, Gladys Salwedel of Oakly, Michigan won the second prize in the Mega Millions lottery, which made her an instant millionaire. But because Gladys ticked the Megaplier option, her prize got from $1 MILLION to a whopping $5 MILLION.

Linda Evans – $5 MILLION – Linda Evans from Virginia matched the five main numbers in the Mega Millions on the draw of December 13th, 2016, which earned her a $1 MILLION. But Linda remembered to Megaply, and it really paid off for her because her big prize was boosted to an incredible $5 MILLION.

Billy’s Bunch Syndicate – $5 MILLION – On June 21st, 2016, a syndicate of twenty men from a medical supply manufacturing company in Rhode Island have won a huge $5 MILLION prize in the Mega Millions. Each member of the Billy’s Bunch syndicate got a $250,000 share of the big prize and they all plan to retire within the following years.

Other American Lottery Multipliers

You might know be aware, but Power Play and Megaplier are not the only American lottery multipliers out there. Powerball and Mega Millions might very well be the inseparable brothers and impossible to conceal enemies, but when it comes to multipliers, they have some competition. For instance, Florida Lotto has the XTRA feature, while Oregon Megabucks has Kicker.

How the XTRA WorksHow the XTRA Works

  • You choose the XTRA option on your Florida Lotto ticket.
  • In the official Florida Lotto draw, one XTRA number from 2 to 5 will be drawn separately from the lottery numbers.
  • The drawn XTRA number (2-5) determines how many times the 2nd and 3rd tier secondary prize will be increased. The XTRA does not apply to the Florida Lotto jackpot.
  • If you guess 3 of the winning Florida Lotto numbers and win the 4th tier prize, the XTRA option will earn you a $25.00 prize regardless of the drawn XTRA number (5x the 4th Tier Prize, every time).
  • If you match 2 of the winning Florida Lotto numbers, the XTRA feature will earn you a Free Ticket in the Florida Lotto, regardless of the drawn XTRA number.

How the Kicker WorksHow the Kicker Works

  • You choose the Kicker option on your Oregon Megabucks ticket.
  • After the 6 Oregon Megabucks winning numbers are drawn, the Kicker is drawn from 2 to 4.
  • The drawn Kicker determines how many times (2, 3, or 4 times) your 2nd and 3rd tier secondary prizes can be increased.
  • If you match 3 of the winning Oregon Megabucks numbers, the Kicker will earn you a $4.00 guaranteed prize.

Why It’s Worth Playing with a Multiplier

If you are still not convinced that lottery multipliers are well worth your attention, then let us tell you exactly how they could improve your game and enhance your experience. These are the three main reasons to try multipliers today.

  • The minimal investment they require is greatly paid off in the prize increase.
  • The Megaplier and the Power Play multiplier can make the $1 MILLION second prize in the US Powerball and the Mega Millions jackpot-sized.
  • Lower-tier prizes come with lower winning odds because the amounts of the prizes are lower as well. But with the multipliers, these could reach outstanding amounts, which means that lottery multipliers can get you big prizes with lower winning odds.

So, what do you think? Are you going to try lottery multipliers for yourself? Do you want the chance to win bigger prizes for the same chances? If so, then don’t forget to Megaply when you play Mega Millions and don’t you overlook the Power Play option in the US Powerball because it could increase your prizes tremendously! Good luck!

7 Songs about the Lottery

Can you think of any songs about the lottery? While it may not seem like a popular music theme, there are quite a few good songs out there that will definitely surprise you. In this article, we have gathered some of the most diverse lotto tunes and we have made up a list of the best 7 songs about the lottery. We hope you’re going to enjoy them as much as we did!

Camper Van Beethoven – When I Win the Lottery

Camper Van Beethoven is one of the fantastic fusion rock bands of the 90’s. An exciting mix of folk, rock, and alternative country, this band is bound to keep you interested. Their song, “When I Win the Lottery” is about a man who has seemed to reach rock bottom and sees the lottery as his chance to fix everything. So, he puts in all his money to buy the lottery ticket that will make things good and then fantasizes about all the things he’d like to do when he wins the lottery. Enjoy!

Train – Lottery

Train is one of the iconic pop-rock bands of the 90’s and it seems that they are still relevant in 2017. Since their rock days from the 90’s, Train has adapted to a more pop-centered sound, but their song, “Lottery” is absolutely adorable. Pat Monahan sings about a man who is so in love that he feels that he’s won the lottery. Not even winning a fabulous American Powerball jackpot compares to how he feels towards this amazing woman that makes him feel alive. Train’s “Lottery” makes for an excellent morning song because it has a very contagious energy to it.

The Crimea – Lottery Winners on Acid

Hailing from the UK’s vast indie scene, The Crimea is yet another amazing band for when you need an energy boost. Their song, “Lottery Winners on Acid” is all about the mind-blowing euphoria that comes with spending time with your significant other. Singer Davey MacManus describes it as not only winning the lottery, but taking the immense adrenaline rush that comes with a lotto win, and taking it so much further. It seems that when you’re spending time with your soul mate, you can really feel like lottery winners on acid.

Lottery – Lydia Caesar

If you feel like dancing, then this song will give you every single reason to because it is brilliantly catchy and you won’t be able to get enough of it once Lydia Caesar gets to the chorus. This one is also a song about the lottery of love, which, it seems, Ms. Caesar has won. “I hit the jackpot, I’m done/ Cashed my cheque, you’re the one/ I thought the odds were against me/ In the love lottery!” What could be lovelier than telling the one you love that he is like the grand jackpot in the lottery of the heart?

Harry Nilsson – The Lottery Song

Harry Nilsson’s song is about a dreamer who starts thinking about the things that he would do with his beloved partner after winning the lottery. The central element of all of the plans that he envisions is doing all of these things together. “The Lottery Song” comes from the hippie era and it is fantastic how that energy can still be felt in Mr. Nilsson’s voice. Enjoy!

Michelle Chamuel – Lottery

This engaging pop song is absolutely addictive because it gets a grip on you from the first seconds and then makes you want to dance. Michelle Chamuel’s song is about how falling in love is just like playing the lottery because you will get immensely exited about what could be, but in the end, fate will decide if you are a winner.

Bow Wow – Put That on My Hood (Lottery Ticket)

“Put it on my hood” is the perfect example of hip pop and you’re not going to help loving it. Snoop Dog’s protege Lil Bow Wow had a very good year in 2011 when his film “Lottery Ticket” came out and his song was all the rage. It is about how even after winning a jackpot as large as those in the Mega Millions won’t change the bond you have with your hood.

So, which of these songs about the lottery did you enjoy best? Whether you feel like pop, indie, soft rock, electro-pop, or hip hop, we have a solid option ready for you. These amazing songs will get you in the perfect mood for playing the lottery! So, put in your tickets for the or the UK Lotto
