London, UK (PRWEB) December 6, 2005
Buying international lottery tickets online is now safer than ever. Lottery24.com, a privately-owned lottery service based in the UK, has changed the face of this growing convenience industry by sending their customers scanned copies of the lottery tickets purchased on their behalf.
And as far as Chris Fields -- Lottery24’s lottery manager -- is concerned, “This is just the start of a whole new ball game!” According to Fields, the two biggest obstacles traditional lottery players have faced when considering taking their purchases online have been (1) credit card security and (2) proof that the lottery service company actually buys the tickets paid for.
“Lottery24.com has tackled both of these head-on,” says Fields. “We don’t store any credit card details whatsoever. These are sent directly to our processing company over a secure connection. And as far as proof of purchase goes, we believe in walking the walk. Customers have valid concerns about tickets actually being purchased, and any winning numbers being paid out. So we’ve gone beyond simple reassurances and now offer visible proof by scanning every ticket bought, which customers receive by email for each of the lottery draws they’ve entered.”
Lottery24.com operates as one of a few major online ‘syndicates’ – a legally accepted means of allowing their customers to purchase lottery tickets in countries they aren’t resident in. In practical terms, an authorised Lottery24 representative in the UK receives your ticket order (with the numbers and draws you’ve chosen) and then purchases your tickets on your behalf. You and the company are then in the lottery draw ‘together’, as part of one syndicate.
Fields explains that because of this syndicate relationship, customers can purchase from anywhere in the world. “We currently offer entry into some of the biggest and most popular government-run lotteries, including the UK National Lottery, EuroMillions, Lotto Hotpicks and Thunderball. As we continue to roll out a better way for our customers to play, we believe that everyone will benefit from the new service standards we’re setting for ourselves, our customers and the industry as a whole.”
Lottery24.com is a subsidiary of Play24 Entertainment, an online e-gaming company with customers in 24 countries around the world.
