The “Rising Star” of Online Gaming
Lottoland – Who We Are
Lottoland, the award-winning “Rising Star of Online Gaming”, has been rocking the Rock since 2013. Based in Gibraltar, our company has just been granted a license by the Irish government to bring the world’s best lotteries and biggest jackpots to Ireland.
Who Is Lottoland?
Lottoland is an online lottery betting company offering all the world’s best lotteries, in addition to scratchcard/instant win games, casino games, and slots. We operate in multiple markets globally and our headquarters are in Gibraltar.
The British territory, on the southern tip of Spain, is the preferred location for all the top gaming companies, including Ladbrokes, William Hill, Bet365 and Boyle Sports.
Lottoland’s CEO is Nigel Birrell, an online gaming industry veteran, who has overseen Lottoland’s transition from small start-up to a globally recognised brand.
In April 2016 Lottoland saw its biggest ever jackpot winner, Matthias from Berlin, who won €22 million on the German Lotto. The win is also significant since, at the time of writing (May 2016) it’s also the biggest jackpot win in Germany so far this year.
It’s also the fifth high profile win for Lottoland since December 2015, which also included a second-tier Powerball winner and a €4 million win on the famous Spanish Christmas lottery, El Gordo.
Lottoland – A Brief History
Lottoland is one of the fastest growing companies, not just in gaming, but in Europe in general. What’s taken other companies years we’ve managed in three.
We launched first on the continent and later, in Brazil.
In 2015 we won two categories at the EGR Operator of the Year Awards 2015 in both the Rising Star and Alternative Operator categories. For EGR, a major industry publication, to include us twice alongside some of the biggest names in the business shows just how far we had come in just two years.
That same year we launched in both the UK (September 2015) and Australia (Christmas 2015). Our UK launch followed a TV ad campaign, fronted by our brand ambassador, Chris Tarrant – a man synonymous with minting new millionaires.
Lottoland Australia received a baptism of fire when, just days after launch, a record-breaking lottery jackpot appeared on the horizon. America’s PowerBall lottery quickly took the title of biggest lottery jackpot of all time, worth an unprecedented $1.586 billion, or approximately €1.4 billion!
The ensuing demand was unlike anything we'd ever seen before. Word of mouth quicky spread and, once the press got wind of it, demand increased exponentially. Suddenly everyone was hearing about this giant lottery jackpot and wanted a chance to win!
Lottoland – Back In Ireland
In August 2015 the newly-enacted Betting (Amendment) Act of 2015 came into effect. This meant that the Republic of Ireland would have, for the first time, its own specific online gaming license, a strict requirement for all companies offering gaming/betting services to Irish players.
The change in legislation required us to temporarily suspended operations in the Republic of Ireland while our application was process. The Irish government granted our new license in April 2016.
Lotteries Will Never Be The Same Again!
With our newly issued license from the Irish government Lottoland is now accepting Irish players and giving them the same chance to win the world's biggest jackpots! So if you're tired of winning nothing week after week it's time to change your luck with our exciting range of lotteries!
