For an online lottery site that looks so busy, you’d think they’d be offering more than simply two lotteries – and home grown ones at that. This Nigerian site has two lottery games, Bank3 and Mega Millions. Don’t look for the mega jackpots offered by US Mega Millions. So how big is the Nigerian Mega Millions?
Mlotto.net’s Mega Millions
Folks – THIS IS NOT THE US MEGA MILLIONS. The top jackpot is worth ₦10,000,000 (about USD 50,000). Nigeria’s Mega Millions is played twice a week, Wednesday and Saturday. Players choose five regular numbers between 1 and 45 for a ticket line and one bonus ball from between 1 to 20. The prize structure has six tiers. There doesn’t appear to be any roll over for jackpots that are not won.
Bank3 at Mlotto
Bank3 is a lottery game played three times a day, 11:15, 16:15 and 21:15. Players choose a three digit number from 000 to 999. The jackpot is ₦50,000 (about USD 250) for matching all three numbers exactly in order or ₦500 (about USD 2.50) for matching all three numbers in any order. It only costs ₦100 to play.
It was only in reviewing the registration process that it became apparent that mlotto.net is only for Nigerians with a valid mobile telephone number – Nigerian! We asked the question of mlotto.net but their email address failed. They say you can play on a computer but generally it appears players do so through an App on their mobile phone or tablet.
Mlotto.net & Customer Service
The whole email thing was not encouraging. We tried their phone numbers and though they say they are open business hours 8:30 am to 5:30 pm, all we got was a recording and a suggestion to email them. There is a snail mail address. This site is operated by Mobile Lottery NIG Ltd. though click on their “About Us” and all it says is “Coming Soon”. These folks are registered with the Nigerian National Lottery Commission and have a license to operate from 2013 through 2023.
Winning at Mlotto.net
There is no information on when you can get your winnings, how to get your winnings and if they take a fee or commission. The terms and conditions really are lacking in information in general. They also discuss in the T&C the fact that players at MLotto agreed to receive advertisements and other info. Players appear to be able to opt out of some of it – but not all of what they want to send you. Gee, get advertisements but not how to get your winnings!
Bonus Programs at MLotto
There is a suggestion in their scrolling info bar that there is a MVP “refer and win” by inviting friends to play but there are no real details anywhere on this site on how it works. If you blink you’ll miss this bit of info as the home page flashes this by along with info on their two lotteries.
The Bottom Line
I guess with an estimated population of Nigeria at 174,507,539, there are a heap of players. For our team, the lack of information in general and the whole email situation nixed this one.
No Working Email Address
No T&C on Winning
No Info on Who These Folks Are
This site gets definite thumbs down! If you are playing on this site, we’d love to hear from you – especially if you’ve won and gotten paid.
