LONDON, March 22, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --
New Millionaire Raffle games form key part of revamped WinTrillions.co.uk site
Following a hugely successful first 12 months, the world's largest lottery website, WinTrillions, has unveiled a brand new look for its UK site and announced that millionaire raffles from its exclusive partnership with the Mexican Lotería Nacional will be offered to British lottery fans for the first time.
The WinTrillions.co.uk site offers exclusive online syndicates for government-licensed lottery games around the world, as well as regular millionaire raffles, such as Spain's legendary Christmas El Gordo. Having become the exclusive global online partner of the Mexican state lottery in November 2012, the revamped WinTrillions site will now offer millionaire raffles from the lottery-mad Central American nation, paying out up to £2.3 Million each week.
"Until we launched in the UK, people wanting to play in syndicates were limited in their options. With WinTrillions, they can take their pick of the biggest and richest lottery games from around the world, playing with more tickets and more chances to win," said Lucy Gold, spokesperson for WinTrillions.co.uk. "Our new site is simple and fun to use, offering our customers a range of exclusive syndicates and millionaire raffles."
"We're particularly excited about bringing the Mexican Lotería Nacional to the UK. These games are officially backed by the Mexican government and they offer guaranteed payouts every week, with typically a 1-in-5 chance of winning a cash prize."
In the last 12 months the two richest weekly lotteries in the world - USA Mega Millions and USA Powerball - have both smashed through their jackpot records, with Mega Millions hitting US$656 Million in March 2012. This has helped to boost the profile and popularity of international lottery games, with potential winnings far greater than many players are used to in the UK.
"One thing we aren't doing is trying to rival or replace the UK National Lottery, in fact most of our customers play that as well," added Lucy. "The beauty of online syndicates is that you get all of the benefits without having to do the organising. Worldwide, 1-in-4 lottery jackpots are won by syndicates and the bigger games, such as EuroMillions, lend themselves perfectly to playing this way, with more chances and a bigger pot to share."
Launched in 2005, WinTrillions uses its global network of lottery messengers to let customers play the world's biggest lotteries from the comfort of their own home. With 2.5 million customers and more than 198,000 individual winners, the company has established itself as a brand leader in the sector.
