LONDON, Aug. 7, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Last year, the Powerball lottery hit a record high of $1.5 billion USD. Now, Smart-Winners.com allows people to engage in over 40 of the world's biggest lotteries, including the U.S. Powerball, right from the comfort of their own homes.
Established in 2010, Smart-Winners gives users access to a broad range of international, government-approved lotteries, including Mega Millions in the United States, SuperEnalotto in Europe, and Lotto Max in Canada. Participation in the Powerball is simple: customers visit Smart-Winners.com to pick five numbers ranging from 1-69, and a special "Powerball" number between 1-26. If all six numbers match, the player wins a jackpot of $40 million U.S. minimum, but there are also consolation prizes for matching a few numbers or just the Powerball.
Other options include Power Play, which doubles Tier 2 winnings and can quintuple those of Tiers 3-9, and the website's automated Smart Play system, which uses unique algorithms developed by math scholars to automatically pick numbers. After the selection process, Smart-Winners notifies its U.S. agents to purchase a Powerball ticket, which is then sent to the company, scanned, and uploaded to the user's private account along with any receipts. Upon winning, payments are given out in the form of lump-sums or yearly annuities.
In addition to carefully documenting all transactions, Smart-Winners meets the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) and also employs Comodo software to protect its servers, thereby reassuring customers that their personal data is safe and secure. "We're quickly earning a reputation for trust and transparency in the online community," said Peter Cooke, Director of Smart-Winners.com. "We dedicated a full year to research and development, working with veteran players and the best web developers to make a more user-friendly website."
Another highlight of Smart-Winners is the ability to play alone or as part of a syndicate. Like office lottery pools, syndicates allow numerous people to combine resources, thus reducing individual costs while furnishing more tickets for the same value as single play. The website is also offering first-time customers a special "buy one get one free deal" on any ticket.
