4 Tips on What to Do After Winning the Lottery

With the US Mega Millions jackpot striking US$157 million and growing every week, your chances of becoming a huge lotto winner and an awesome rich person are better than ever.  Hitting those winning lottery results for a life-changing prize could be the difference between a failed lottery shot and something truly magical.

That’s why at LottoExpress, we’re here to help make sure that when you become a millionaire, you do it the right way, smart and in style!

Sometimes, lottery rules are more confusing than the ins and outs of a lottery draw itself. When you strike the big one, security, anonymity, responsible prize claiming and shrewd financial planning need to be at the top of every lottery winner’s mind.

We’ve got four tips on what to do after you win the lottery so you can be the best lottery winner possible!

1. Stay Anonymous

Many lottery winners get so excited when they hit the big jackpot that they want to spread the news with the whole world.

But sharing the joy sometimes has its downsides, and some lottery agencies even require you to reveal your identity, which can be especially difficult to navigate without trusted representatives on your side to help keep your identity private.

Time after time, we hear stories about winners who become hounded with unwanted media scrutiny and attention from friends and even family members they haven’t heard from in years!

At LottoExpress, we never reveal your identity without your express permission, regardless of whether you win €5 or €500 million.  We make sure you can start your new dream life hassle-free.

2. Pay Off Your Debts

Nobody likes bill collectors, who can be pesky and sometimes even vicious. What’s the point in becoming a new millionaire if you can’t get them off your back?

The stresses of everyday life, such as paying bills and keeping up with mortgage payments, are reasons enough to try your luck at any one of the many lottery games and lotto jackpots on LottoExpress, but sometimes it can be all too easy to slip into that feeling of euphoria after a big win. Nobody wants to go back to their life the way it was before once you’re rich.

Every financial guru will tell you that the first thing you need to do when you strike it big on a national lottery is to pay off your debts. With all of the amazing opportunities at LottoExpress, you can finally have that chance to make stress go away forever and never have to struggle to pay a bill again.

3. Double-Check the Fine Print

Most lottery organizations have fine-print details on lotto tickets and in their rules and regulations. Any small slip-up could be the difference between being a somebody with lots of money and a nobody who has to keep punching the clock day in and day out.

Whether it’s signing your name, protecting the integrity of your ticket (no laundry machines!) or meeting prize-claiming deadlines, you wouldn’t want your pot of gold to disintegrate over a technicality.

LottoExpress has your back. We keep your tickets secure, claim large winnings for you and place them in safekeeping, arrange the transfer of your winnings via a payment method of your choice and even convert the winnings to your preferred currency when possible—all without any commissions, charges or surprise fees!

4. Keep Security at the Top of Your Mind

Lastly, when you’re playing international lotteries online, you can bet there will be a lot of people out there who want to take your money for nothing.

When you are about to receive your lotto winnings—and even before you think you’ve won anything at all!—do your research to make sure you’re dealing with a reputable and registered organization. It will make all the difference in the world between you being a smart and happy lottery winner and someone who has to burn the midnight oil.

Luckily for you, LottoExpress is a trusted lottery-ticket agent, owned and operated by International Multi-Media Entertainments Ltd., which is government-registered and regulated. You can bet your winnings will be in safe hands before their in your hands!


So live large at LottoExpress, where you know that once you become a millionaire, you will be on the fast track to success with these expert tips.

And we want to get the ball rolling with a little bonus from us to you. For a limited time, enjoy an exclusive FREE ticket in the Irish Lotto with our unique Irish-American bundle that also includes entries into the US Mega Millions and US Powerball draws for a chance at hundreds of millions of dollars!

Happy winning.

13 Lucky Leap-Day Facts for Hitting US$435 MILLION

Leap of the morning to ya! Ever wanted an extra day of symbolic good luck for your lottery fortunes?

It’s 29 February and this day only comes around roughly once every four years. It’s like a free day, so take a leap and have some fun. Your life could change luxuriously in the blink of an eye!

LottoExpress is here to celebrate Leap Day with our Irish-American combo. You will receive a FREE TICKET into the Irish Lotto and play the US Mega Millions, US Powerball and the Irish Lotto for a chance to win a grand total of over US$435 MILLION.

And in the spirit of Leap Day, here are some facts about the holiday you’ve maybe never heard of:

  1. Leap Day exists because it takes the earth approximately 365.25 days to gravitate around the sun in a year, so 29 February compensates for that extra quarter day.
  2. Leap Year was created by the Ancient Roman dictator Julius Caesar, with consultation from the Ancient Greek astrologer Sosigenes of Alexandria. Together, they created what became known as the Julian calendar, the first to feature Leap Years.
  3. Caesar and Sosigenes had the right idea but they oversimplified the mathematical logic in making any year divisible by four a leap year; this issue wasn’t resolved until over 1,500 years later with the introduction of the Gregorian calendar under the rule of Pope Gregory XIII. Now, a leap year is every year divisible by four except for years both divisible by 100 and not divisible by 400.
  4. Leaping frogs are the unofficial animal of Leap Day. They are a symbol of good fortune, and might even be the official food of Leap Day if there was one!
  5. 29 February is also Rare Disease Day.
  6. The modern Chinese calendar adds a whole extra leap month every three years; but which month is often almost a surprise since it varies!
  7. People born on Leap Day are often known as “leaplings” or “leapers.”
  8. The chances of being born on Leap Day are about one in 1,461—better than the chances of bowling a perfect game (about one in 11,500)!
  9. In Taiwan, it is tradition for married daughters to spend Leap Months with their parents; they often bring pig-trotter noodles to wish their parents good health and good fortune.
  10. Only two families in history are thought to have given birth to three Leap Day babies: The Henriksens from Norway in 1960, 1964 and 1968, and the Estes from the United States of America in 2004, 2008 and 2012.
  11. Famous “leapers” include composer Gioacchino Rossini, motivational speaker Tony Robbins, jazz musician Jimmy Dorsey, actor Dennis Farina, actor Antonio Sabato Jr. and rapper/actor Ja Rule.
  12. The leap year of 1848 is known for the famous discovery of gold in California, leading to the lucky Gold Rush of the West!
  13. In Ireland, Leap Day is known as Bachelor’s Day, when it is tradition for women to offer marriage proposals to men; in the custom begun by Queen Margaret of Scotland in 1288, if a man refuses the proposal, he must offer a kiss, a silk dress or 12 pairs of gloves.

Act today and PLAY NOW, and maybe you could turn these 13 lucky Leap Day facts into 435 million reasons to leap for joy!

Happy Leap Year!

Ring in the New Year and Make Lottery History

It’s official: at an estimated £57.8 million, Saturday’s National Lottery jackpot will be your chance to play for the biggest prize in UK history!

What’s more, due to recent changes made by National Lottery operator Camelot, Saturday’s British Lotto 6/59 jackpot must be won, no matter the odds. The new changes, which were announced in October 2015, declare that once a jackpot reaches £50 million, one final rollover may occur, then the prize must be awarded, whether or not all six numbers are matched.

That jackpot threshold was crossed Wednesday, when the prize of £50.4 million remained unclaimed. Because no one took home the money, Saturday’s draw will be the first time the new rules kick in to effect.

So what does this mean for lottery enthusiasts like us?

It means that if no one matches all six numbers in Saturday’s jackpot, then the prize will be won or shared by whoever matches the most numbers. In other words, a prize previously available at much lower odds will now be worth £57.8 million!

Excitement for this unprecedented moment has been steadily building all week: in the hours leading up to Wednesday’s jackpot draw, an estimated 200 tickets per second were sold as people clamoured for the chance to win the previously record-setting prize. And once the numbers were announced on Wednesday evening, the National Lottery’s website crashed almost immediately as thousands of people rushed to check their tickets online.

Despite the buying frenzy, no winning ticket was announced, which meant that the suspense will continue to grow and ticket sales will keep soaring up to the final weekend draw.

If the past week is any indication, Saturday’s Lotto jackpot promises to generate even more adrenaline-fueled buzz. Now is the perfect time to join the party and grab your ticket from LottoExpress. As a licensed retailer, LottoExpress is a trusted site where you can easily and quickly make your picks. And now you can play up to 20 lines for this mammoth draw to increase your chance to win the payout of a lifetime.

Don’t miss your chance to win big. Buy your ticket from LottoExpress.com now for a chance to make history in style!
