LONDON, October 15, 2018 /PRNewswire/ --
Cheeky, Cheshire-based online gaming company Celeblotto caused quite the stir today.
When asked whether they thought Tuesday's US Mega Millions lottery would break the record $656 million figure set in 2012, a rather unusual spokesperson was pushed forward by the brand. Step forward, none other than a Trump lookalike.
Mega Millions - the American lottery game that's played in 44 states - has now rolled-over a staggering 22 times. With the last tier one winner back on July 24, the US is currently gripped in a media lottery frenzy. Press coverage includes stories of 1km lines at petrol stations and 4-hour queues at American convenience stores to buy lottery tickets, where a single Mega Millions jackpot winner would exceed the record haul shared by three people six years ago.
For the record, Celeblotto spokesperson 'The Donald' said: "I like the UK. But you Brits have a very, very average lottery. Whereas in the US, we have many great, great games. Who wouldn't want the chance to win $654m on Mega Millions. I mean you'd be crazy not to get involved."
Who knows, we could see a British punter strike it lucky with a Mega Millions bet and set a new world record payout for UK bookmakers come Tuesday, especially if 'The Donald' has his way.
Celeblotto is an award-winning betting company, headquartered in Cheshire, and one of few online gaming companies based exclusively in Britain. Licensed and regulated by the Gambling Commission for players in the UK, Celeblotto, uses an insurance model to allows players to bet on the outcome of lotteries and win the exact same prizes that an official lottery operator would pay out if they won with a real lottery ticket in their country - including the jackpot. Meaning there's a potential $654m (£497m) Mega Millions jackpot on offer at Celeblotto at the moment.
