Lottery Messenger Services

Lottery messenger services, also known as lottery concierge services or lottery couriers, make it easier than ever for you to enjoy the best lottery games in the world.

While various US state lotteries now sell tickets directly online, in other places you can use messenger companies to get tickets bought for you, so that you don’t have to leave home and your numbers are kept safe in a digital account.

Thanks to the growth of these websites you can now play for the huge jackpots offered by Powerball, Mega Millions, EuroMillions, SuperEnalotto and many other international lotteries, sometimes even if you are not located in the state or country where these games are staged.

Types of Lottery Messenger Service

Courier Services

Playing through a courier service such as TheLotter.com or Jackpot.com means that a lottery agent based in the jurisdiction in which the game is played will take your order and payment and will buy the lottery tickets on your behalf.

They will scan your entries and upload the image of the tickets to your player account, securing the original copy in a vault to ensure it doesn’t go missing or get damaged.

The Betting Model

Lottery betting services offer an alternative to couriers. You still pick your numbers online, but a ticket is not actually bought for you.

Instead, the company is insured against the possibility of you winning a prize with that specific set of numbers. This means you are effectively betting on the outcome of a lottery draw, rather than playing it in the traditional sense.

LotteryWorld.com is an example of a betting site, while Jackpot.com also offers wagers rather than a courier service in many countries.

Both courier services and betting sites are perfectly legal, with industry regulations adhered to and security put in place by the major players in the industry to ensure that playing worldwide lotteries through these services is a secure, fun and rewarding experience. However, there are different rules and restrictions in different parts of the world.

Playing Online in the U.S.

You can now enjoy your favorite lotteries online in many U.S. states. Michigan, Pennsylvania and Michigan are among the jurisdictions where you can buy tickets from the state lottery’s official website. Elsewhere, courier services operate independently from the state lotteries to purchase tickets for you. Find out more about playing online in the USA.

Other Services

Lottery messenger services also sometimes offer additional products to their customers to enhance their user experience, with Jackpot.com providing online scratchcards and allowing you to sign up to a daily, monthly or yearly plan that gives you access to automatic lottery subscriptions, letting you create your own private groups and more.

Some companies, like Syndicate.co.uk, organise online lottery pools in which you are able to buy shares. In this case, the tickets will be bought and scanned in advance and you will be informed about which numbers will be played in the next draw before you choose to join the group. Once your shares are paid for, you will be able to see the scanned tickets in your account as you would if you were playing individual lines.
