Mega Millions and Powerball for UK residents
There is a lottery in almost every country on earth, but not all lotteries are like Powerball and Mega Millions, the big US lotteries. Lotto jackpots in the US have reached amounts as high as $1,5 Billion (in 2016). The lottery jackpot in the UK has never reached such an amount, so whenever lotto fans read about another record-breaking lotto jackpot in the USA, they ask themselves one question: Can I play Powerball or Mega Millions Lotto from the UK, maybe online?
Well the simple answer is yes - even as a resident of the UK, you can play Powerball or Mega Millions. There is a reputable service that allows you to buy tickets for those huge lotteries, or a number of other international lotteries. It is as simple as can be - you pick your numbers online, and they send their agents inside the US out to buy tickets for you. Those lotto tickets are in your name so that you have a legitimate claim against the lottery commission itself. If you win, they will also assist you in getting your money.
The online lotto ticket service provider
The name of the company is RedFoxLotto - here is the link to visit their website -, and they have been offering this service since 2002. More than 2,2 Million of their customers have bought winning tickets through them in the past years. The important part is the fact that you will get an original lotto ticket here, and not participate in some kind of lotto scam!
The process of purchasing your lottery ticket online
First, you go to their website (this link), where you choose the lottery in which you want to participate. The website is available in 15 different languages. Most customers buy tickets for the US lotteries Powerball and/or Mega Millions, but very often other international lotteries have huge jackpots as well. You can sort them by size of jackpot and simply play the lotto that currently has the highest amount. If you want to play multiple lotteries, that is easy as well - for example, you can buy one ticket for Mega Millions, and another for the Spanish El Gordo.
Next, you pick your numbers - this is easy since the website will show you how many numbers you have to pick. There is a quick pick function that generates numbers at random if you prefer that. After that, choose how many tickets you want to buy, and how many draws (weeks) you want your ticket to be valid for. Depending on for how many weeks your ticket will participate, you will get a discount of up 25% on the price you pay for the ticket.
After you have chosen all your options, you can see the total price and the next step is to register a customer account with RedFoxLotto. Paying for your lottery tickets is easy too - most clients choose the credit card payment option, but there are other options such as Skrill, Neteller and (depending on the country you are from) instant bank transfer.
For your payment from the UK, the latest and most secure protocols will be used so that you do not have to fear any credit card fraud. If you want you can choose the option of automatic renewal - with this kind of subscription, your numbers will participate in Powerball, Mega Millions or whatever lottery you choose, until you decide to cancel. Payments will then automatically charged to your credit card. This is an option though - if you do not check that box, you will get charged only once!
Most people in the UK play their local lotto only, without being aware of this option to play international lotto online. But now that you are in the know, what keeps you from playing for jackpots that often are 100 times as high as what you can win in the UK? Maybe you will be the next Powerball or Mega Millions jackpot winner!
