What could you do with a jackpot win? Tonight's EuroMillions is a massive £80M!

In case you haven't heard, tonight's EuroMillions jackpot is a massive £80 million! If you haven't got your tickets yet, don't forget you can get more chances for your money by playing in a Lottery syndicate with LottoByText - straight to your mobile - click here to find out more and get yours now!

£80 million a pretty hefty sum, but you'd be forgiven for struggling to get your head around exactly how rich a win like that could make you. That's why, in this post, we've picked out some ideas on how to spend that kind of cash... take a look.

An Upgraded Home in the UK

The average house price in the UK, according to The Office for National Statistics, hit £250,000 at the end of 2013. So you could buy 320 average houses in the UK... that's at least one property in every county in the UK! A bit much? Okay, well how about spending £68 million of your total £80m on one of the most expensive properties in the UK? That'd leave you with a good £12m to spend on whatever else you like, and it ought to hold its value with a little set aside for upkeep.

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/property/luxuryhomes/10677978/Worlds-most-expensive-properties-for-sale.html?frame=2843200
One Hyde Park, Knightsbridge, London, SW1X - £68m

A Holiday

For a mere £1 million, you can embark on a two-year-long trip visiting over 150 countries, courtesy of veryfirstto.com. Other options for the same price, according to The Telegraph, include a flight to space with Virgin Galactic, a month on board a private plane, 57 nights in the Hugh Hefner Sky Villa or 23 years at Butlins!

Visit more than 150 countries over 2 years - £1m
A Car

The Lamborghini Veneno Roadster - $4.5 million (£2.7 million). For a mere $2.5 million (£1.5 million) you can bag yourself a Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport Vitesse... you might need to hire a track to drive them on, but hey, you could buy a fleet of these cars and still have more cash leftover than you know what to do with!

The Lamborghini Veneno Roadster - $4.5 million
Something More Trivial?

You could buy 24.2 million Caramel Macchiatos from Starbucks. No? How about 53.7 million double cheeseburgers from McDonald's? That's one double cheeseburger for every man, woman and child in England (according to The ONS in mid 2012)!


However you'd spend £80 million, you won't get a chance if you don't buy a ticket! Why not play in one of LottoByText's Lottery syndicates for more chances of getting your hands on some of that jackpot?

Good luck!

Win a Romantic Prize to Share With Your One-in-a-Million This Valentine’s Day!

After the highs and lows of the Christmas period, Valentine’s Day is the next festive celebration to look forward to. But with the not-so-heart-warming economic crisis, there are very few ways to keep up with the over-priced gift trends and make your one-in-a-million feel truly special.

To really get that romantic feeling this February 14th we are pleased to offer you a chance of winning a romantic meal for two at Carluccio's or a luxurious hamper from Interflora. To enter the competition head over to the LottoByText Facebook page and like the app now!

Whether you are one of the 40% of the population that doesn’t go in for the whole Valentine’s Day hype, or you are the other 60% which is going to splash out and make up the multi-billion pound industry, winning this treat could really change that night spent on the sofa.

What is the price of love?

Even though many couples try to avoid exchanging tacky stuffed animals or sexy underwear that probably wouldn’t fit, they are still going to spend money on expressing their feelings with a romantic gesture.

According to Daily Infographic, 45% of the UK population plan to purchase something for a loved one this Valentine’s day. Britons will also collectively spend a whopping £668 million on celebrating love this year, with men spending almost double what women would!

Some might say, Valentine’s Day is simply far too expensive for what the heart can afford.

And since love is all about dreaming, why not dream of a National Lottery win which can take you and your other half on a top romantic cruise destination such as the Seychelles, the Maldives or St. Lucia.

Saying it with flowers and dinner!

It seems that the one area we shouldn’t scrimp on (as cliche as it might be) is flowers. 70% of women would like to receive their lovely bunch at home and nearly 20% of both men and women would enjoy a luxury chocolate set.

Huffington post’s statistics showed an upward trend for flower buying, as in 2012 we bought 2,745,000 flower gifts! Interflora’s research suggests that more than 30% of us would spend February the 14th the classic way - dinner, chocolates, flowers and the company of the loved one.

Valentines is less than 2 weeks away, so hurry up and head over to our Facebook page for your chance to win a classic romantic treat, simply by liking our app!

Good luck and have a Happy Valentine’s!

National Lottery price hike only 2 weeks away

We thought we should give you another heads up!


If you aren't aware already, the nation's favorite lottery operator, the National Lottery, is upping the price of a Lotto ticket from the 5th October 2013. 

The cost of playing the Lotto doubles on 5th October 2013 


After much protest and criticism the National Lottery have stuck to their original plan & will change how the game is structured as well as raising the prices.

While the cost of a lotto ticket hasn't increased since the National Lottery started 19 years ago, it has come as a shock to some players, including ourselves.

One disgruntled player was quick to voice his concerns through the National Lottery's Facebook page

Geordie Mick said: “It’s becoming a game for the rich. Poor people will never have a chance of bettering ourselves now.” 

Pauline Leather, another former Facebook fan added: “As a pensioner on a budget I can’t afford to be paying £2 a line. You’ve just lost a customer and should hang your heads in shame.”


It's not all doom and gloom!


Here at LottoByText, we've thought long and hard about how we can allow lottery syndicate players to still enjoy the benefits of LottoByText whilst the cost goes up.


Therefore, we've decided on a price fix! 


As LottoByText players, you will not be affected by the price increase. 

In fact, as a special thank you for being loyal customers we're going to be offering extra special promotions to coincide with the National Lottery £2 price hike. Watch this space!

Importantly, nothing will change if you are a LottoByText customer. Your weekly subscription costs will stay the same and your lotto numbers will stay the same. 

As an added bonus you will also receive even more chances to win cash prizes.

This is how?

As part of the Lotto makeover, the National Lottery are adding a brand new raffle with at least 50 guaranteed winners of £20,000 in every draw. So that's 100 raffle winners each week. 

With your typical LottoByText syndicate you'll get an extra 10 entries into the raffle each week, at no extra cost.

There's even more to shout about!



At no extra cost and as little as £4.50 per week LottoByText customers will get



  • 5 EuroMillions Lines for the Tuesday or Friday draw

  • 5 EuroMillions Raffle entries

  • 5 Lotto Lines for the Wednesday and Saturday draw

  • 10 Lotto Raffle entries

You don't need to be a mathematician to work out that playing in a LottoByText syndicate is good value & the best way to play the lottery. When you next think about putting a few pounds on the lottery, take a second to think about how many chances you want!

LottoByText syndicates will allow you to get 30 chances each week to win the major cash prizes.  

If you want to find out more about the National Lottery's £2 price hike visit the LottoByText news site.

Lottery Syndicate in Liverpool scoops £28M EuroMillions Jackpot!


Ever wondered what might happen if you forgot to pay your lottery syndicate subscription on time and the numbers hit the million-pound jackpot?

It’s a scary thought but you’d be surprised how often it happens!

The consequences can be disastrous, as we’ve found in Liverpool, where a group of 10 syndicate members scooped the £28 million EuroMillions jackpot, missing out the 11th member who failed to pay up in time!

10-strong lottery syndicate in Merseyside scoops £28 million EuroMillions jackpot

 


The group of ten were colleagues and each pocketed nearly £3 million each.

Louisa Whitby, 31, claimed she missed out on her share of the jackpot as she was off work on the day payments were collected. She has now hired a solicitor and suing her colleagues to reclaim her missed fortune.

Is she due her share of the jackpot?


As she failed to contribute to her share of the syndicated lottery ticket, and without a good syndicate management contract in place, it will be difficult for her to contest the decision of the syndicate group to exclude her from the winning pot.

Missing your lottery syndicate subscription and not being able to claim your share of winning could be a major headache and concern.

It’s imperative therefore that you remember to buy and pay for that lottery ticket. It could be the biggest mistake of your life.

TRUST is also a major concern. How do you know your colleagues or friends can be trusted to share the winning?

Can you trust the syndicate manager to purchase the tickets? Can you trust them not to run off with the money if your numbers do come up?

These concerns can be eliminated easily when you join a professionally managed syndicate management group such as LottoByText or MatchMoreLotto.

Hassle Free Lottery Syndicate


-        Professional managed, all winnings are paid out
-        Online and SMS subscription available. This means you will never miss another winning or draw again!
-        Get more lines for less from as low as £4.50 for 15 EuroMillions and Lotto Lines
-        Shared risks and winnings
-        Play on your mobile phone & receive your lottery results by SMS

Do not forget that the official National Lottery statistic claims 1 in 4 jackpots is won by a syndicate. This could be your lucky day!

If you fancy starting a lottery syndicate, join LottoByText today and get 5 Free Lines in the next draw and see how you get on. If you like what you are getting, you do not need to do anything and you will get 15 Syndicated Lotto/EuroMillions Lines each week for only £4.50 by SMS. Otherwise just reply stop to opt-out from the subscription for free!
