Lottoland Celebrates Ten Years Since Launch
The online betting operator will hit 18M customers in its 10th anniversary year
Gibraltar (May 12, 2023) — World-leading online lotto betting operator, Lottoland, is celebrating a milestone ten years since its launch this May.
The Gibraltar-based company, founded in 2013, is on track to reach 18 million customers as it marks a decade of offering worldwide lotteries to people across the globe.
Nigel Birrell, Group CEO at Lottoland said: “We’re thrilled to be celebrating ten years of Lottoland this year. The past decade has been a whirlwind and it’s been incredibly rewarding to see the business go from strength to strength.
“We have a fantastic team of people at Lottoland that continually drive us forward and find new and exciting ways for customers to engage with a lottery in a safe, enjoyable atmosphere. It’s a testament to them that we are expecting to welcome our eighteen millionth customer this year!”
Lottoland was first launched in 2013 and originally began with seven employees and just a handful of lotteries available to its customers.
Over the past ten years, the business has grown to include over 400 employees, 35+ lottos – including the US jackpots MegaMillions and Powerball, is active in 15 markets across the globe, rolls out over 50 new games per month, offers bets on over 500,000 sporting events, and most recently has launched KenoGo in Australia.
It’s through its international lotteries offering that Lottoland has awarded multi-million-pound prizes to its customers, including a world-record £79m pay-out on the EuroJackpot to Christina, a cleaner from Berlin. The prize marked the world’s largest online gaming win when it was awarded in 2018.
In 2020, Lottoland launched the first of its charitable products, the Win-Win Charity Lottos, which along with accompanying charity scratchcards has raised extra funding for organisations including the Blue Cross for Pets, DSPCA, Hospice UK, Irish Red Cross and the Prader-Willi Syndrome Association.
Last month Lottoland announced a significant milestone in its journey to net-zero after planting 2.7 million trees. The company was the first Gambling company to achieve carbon neutral status and sign The Climate Pledge.
Nigel added: “Looking back at the last ten years, it’s great to see everything we have achieved as a team, even when we have had some large obstacles thrown in our way! Looking forward, we’re all excited about the next chapter of our journey and continuing to grow and deliver exciting, innovative products for our customers.
Lottoland has grown rapidly to become a world leader in online lotto. Innovation, coupled with the freedom to offer players a unique and enhanced lottery experience, has been key to the company’s success. In June 2018, Lottoland paid out €90 million to one lucky winner in Germany – this win has been confirmed by Guinness World Records as the largest online gambling pay-out.
The Gibraltar-based business is active in 15 markets, has over 400 employees, and has more than 17 million customers worldwide. Lottoland is licensed and regulated by the Government of Gibraltar, the UK Gambling Commission, the Republic of Ireland National Excise License Office, the Agenzia delle Dogane e dei Monopoli in Italy, the Northern Territory’s Racing Commission in Australia and has recently received licences from the Swedish Gambling Authority, the Malta Gaming Authority and the Western Cape Gambling and Racing Board.
