10 UK Millionaires Guaranteed on Boxing Day Friday

2014 has flown by in a blink of an eye. How many of us will end this year in style and become a millionaire in time for Christmas?

The National Lottery has finally announced their Christmas Special with 500 guaranteed winners of £20,000 with the Lotto raffle on Christmas Eve. Boxing Day EuroMillions Draw will make 10 UK Millionaires overnight, each winning a luxury 5-star trip to see the spectacular Northern Lights.

A total of 35 UK Millionaires were made in November and October alone in the Mega Friday draws, with each winning a trip of a lifetime. With so many millionaires made in the past few months, there is little wonder we are continuously hoping that the next lucky winner might just be us.

Although winning the jackpot is not impossible, chances are still stacked against players. With 1 in 6 lotto jackpots won by syndicates, joining a lottery syndicate might just be the way to go to win that big jackpot. More players will give you the buying power of getting more lines, increasing your chances of success. The one downside to playing in a lottery syndicate is that you will be sharing your winning money, but the winnings can still be considerable if the numbers are limited or the jackpot is huge.

Play in the Europe’s biggest rolling-jackpot lottery game, EuroMillions by joining a professionally managed lottery syndicate like Lotto Social and get 30 syndicated EuroMillions Lines for only £1 in the next draw using voucher code EURO30 at checkout.

They are easy to get going, and you can play online continuously by Direct Debit or Credit Card for total convenience so you will never miss another draw again.

Official ticket sales close at 7.30pm, with the draw set to be made at 8.30pm although it’s wise to get your syndicate entries by 6pm to avoid the ticket rush on big jackpot days.

As the National Lottery statistic has shown, 1 in 6 jackpots are won by syndicates. If you prefer to avoid the complexities of setting up your own lottery syndicate and potential nasty disagreements with syndicate members, joining a professionally managed syndicate like Lotto Social may be the way to go. The company was established in 2005 in the UK, and has paid out thousands of pounds worth of winnings to date to syndicate players. There is a no quibble 100% refund policy if you do not have any winnings within the first 3 months of joining and playing.

Join a lottery syndicate today, boost your winning chances and never miss a win again. You never know you might make it to become a millionaire just before the New Year with the 10 UK Millionaires Guaranteed on Boxing Day!

Could You Be The Next Neil Trotter? Win Millions!

Last week, the life of a car mechanic Neil Trotter from South London changed forever. As if by magic, he managed to match all six numbers and scoop one of the biggest EuroMillions jackpots - a jaw-dropping £108 million!
*Image credit to

On a draw day many of you might say to friends or family - "this time tomorrow I will be a
millionaire", which might turn into just wishful thinking. Whereas for 41-year-old Trotter these words became true. It might have been the lucky feeling that he says to have had the week of the fortunate draw, or it might have been just fate, but what's undeniable is that Mr. Trotter is now £108 million richer!

He says that checking his numbers and realising they all match has made him turn "white as a sheet". Mr Trotter says he celebrated the win with his 33-year-old partner Nicky Ottaway with a few beers the same night. Ms Ottaway, says one of the first things they've done is a bit of high-end shopping where they found people turning up their noses at them, thinking they couldn't afford any of the luxury items.

Imagine how good it must feel knowing that the money you've got in your bank account is beyond what people at high-end shops think you own!?

There is no reason why you couldn't be the next Neil Trotter and have the luck to scoop the EuroMillions jackpot. All you need is more chances of winning and a little bit of good faith.

The best way to increase your chances of winning is playing in a lottery syndicate. Why not try LottoByText's lottery syndicates, where we give lottery lovers 5 FREE entries into the next draw?!

We hope to feature you as the next EuroMillions jackpot winner. Happiness is just around the corner! Good luck to your lottery syndicate!

Another Massive Jackpot for the EuroMillions - £107m this Friday 14.03.2014!

This Friday there's yet another staggering jackpot in the EuroMillions draw - £107,000,000!

So how does this happen?

Well, with all the ticket sales across all the participating countries playing the EuroMillions each week, there's room in the budget for a bigger prize than the UK Lotto. If no one matches all the numbers on a given draw, winning the jackpot, that amount rolls over to the next draw, making the total prize fund even bigger. This whopping prize fund is the result of two missed jackpots.

Remember the number of people playing in the Lottery overall doesn't affect your chances of winning... so those incredible jackpots are just as achievable as any other in the EuroMillions.

Getting in on the action...

Obviously, the probability of winning is still pretty slim, but with LottoByText you can better your chances and take the hassle out of playing too with our managed Lottery Syndicate services. One in four lottery jackpots is actually won by a syndicate!

If you sign up now, you will get 5 free lines in the next available National Lottery or EuroMillions draw. After your first draw, it’s only £4.50 per week for 15 lines & results. For more information regarding this offer, please click here.

For every line you buy you get Millionaire Raffle entries too. So for the best chance of taking home that eye-watering prize amount play with LottoByText.

Fingers crossed!

6 things you could buy with tonight’s whopping £80m EuroMillions jackpot!

It’s Friday 7th March and Europe is buzzing with excitement about who is going to win the massive £80m EuroMillions jackpot this evening. If a Brit became the latest millionaire taking home the full jackpot, they'll become the 932rd richest person in the country! You could become a millionaire tonight yourself by getting LottoByText’s 5 FREE syndicated lottery lines - for your chance to scoop a share of the big win. To find out more on how lottery syndicates work and get your numbers for tonight's draw, visit our website.

It’s difficult to imagine what £80m can buy for yourself, but it's also important to consider the impact this amount could have for a good cause. Bristol resident Rachel Riddall has started a petition calling for Camelot UK Lotteries to set aside the £12m jackpot which went unclaimed in this week’s earlier draw and donate them to Typhoon Hayian victims. The cause has already found 130,000 supporters and Camelot are willing to support the idea, according to the Daily Star.

If you are lucky enough to become a winner tonight then you might be helping a generous cause and still have a lot of cash to splash. And we mean A LOT!

Here are 6 luxury and somewhat bizarre things you could do with £80m in your bank account:

*Credit to
1. Why not begin by opening a bottle of the most expensive champagne - Goût de Diamants, Taste of Diamonds at the price of just £1.2m? Celebrate in style, relax and think about what you are going to splash out on next.

2. Buy a mansion in Hampstead Heath - we’ve found one at the price of £40m. It has 8 bedrooms, 7 bathrooms, a swimming pool, golf course, a lot of land and a lot of space for living your dreams.

*Credit to
3. Don’t just visit an island - buy one! This little paradise in the Caribbean is among the many for sale now - only £2,555,291! Why not?

4. You could, if you wish to, spend the whole £80m on a fleet of 420 Lamborghini Gallardo Spyder Performante cars worth £190,200 each!

*Credit to
5. The most expensive telly in the world could also be yours. Stuart Hughes’ PrestigeHD Supreme Edition is one of three in the world. The outer frame is “adorned with 72 brilliant round cut 1ct IF Flawless diamonds” and a mix of sunstone & amethyst, while the inner frame is made of hand sewn Alligator skin. If more of these were to be created, the world will be left with no diamonds or gold! The price? A cool £1.5m.

6. With £80m in at your disposal, you can even go to the toilet like a real millionaire! Get the world's most expensive golden loo - the £3m Hang Fung Gold Toilet.

You can dream of spending this amount of money on a huge variety of different things, but we hope this gives you a taste of what it would be like to become tonight’s winner. You’ll never win unless you get a ticket and with LottoByText’s lottery syndicates you can get 5 FREE chances to win! What’s better than that?!

Hurry up get your tickets and fingers crossed!
