AMSTERDAM, September 8, 2011 /PRNewswire/ --
Syndicate Members Scoop Nearly €10,000!
One of the world's most trusted lottery agents, European Lottery Guild (ELG), today announced recent winners of its new online Irish Lotto Special Edition Syndicate - the game that gives players around the world the chance to play the Irish Lotto and win a share of its €181 Million annual prize pool.
So far, almost €10,000 has been won by members of the Irish Lotto Special Edition Syndicate that was launched earlier this month in response to huge demand from lottery players in the UK eager to try and capture the luck of the Irish. Winning players include Mrs. H.D. from Scotland who won €1,977 and Mr. E.T. from London who won a €1,633 prize. (Winners' full names are not disclosed for privacy reasons.)
"The Irish Lotto Special Edition Syndicate has always been hugely popular with our customers and we are delighted to see what a great success the online version of the game has been," says Elisabeth Moore, customer relations manager at ELG. "Our UK customers have been snapping up shares in the syndicate and, with nearly €10,000 won so far, I'm pleased it's paying off for them."
The new online syndicate can be played at http://www.irishjackpot.com/ and costs just £8 to join for a 4-week entry period. This gives players 8 chances to win a share of prizes, including the massive Irish Lotto jackpot which often exceeds the €2 million minimum guarantee. The record jackpot currently stands at £16 million and the game's 6/45 format means that it is 42% easier to win the main prize than playing the UK National Lottery.
Irish Lotto Special Edition Syndicate members are also given free entry into the 'Lucky 300' bonus play, where they'll hold 100 places for every draw in the Irish, German and Spanish lotteries. This bonus offer gives members a total of 2,400 extra chances to win a share of jackpots worth up to €45.3 Million, meaning that they are entered into a total of 24 national lottery draws over the 4-week play period.
"I've never won anything like this before," says Mr. G.S. from Northern Ireland, who won €623 on the Irish Lotto Special Edition Syndicate.
The Irish Lotto Special Edition Syndicate is simple to enter at http://www.irishjackpot.com and all transactions are 100% secure, protected by 256-bit encryption.
"European Lottery Guild is a leading lottery agent because we put our customers' safety and security first," adds Moore. "All ELG winners receive the full value of their prize and winnings are paid out promptly with no deductions of any kind."
