FAQs

Is this service legal?

Why wouldn’t it be? We provide a free lottery ticket courier service and charge a nominal subscription fee (nominal? It’s downright cheap actually for what you get. Hey Mark check with accounting maybe we need to raise the price) for our software that tracks all your play, players in your pool and notifies you when you win. It’s the most awesome way to purchase lottery tickets and manage your lottery play ever invented! And we’re modest too☺

Is lottery pooling legal?

No. We’ve spent thousands of dollars and countless hours developing LottoLishus because we want to go to jail! Wait a minute, wrong answer, it’s YES, of course it’s legal. In fact it’s encouraged on many state lottery websites. Most jackpots are won by friends, family or coworkers pooling together to increase their chances of winning. So quit being a worry wart. Get your buddies together and join the only Universe that could make you a millionaire!

Why pool with LottoLishus?

Number one, it’s fun! Two, our software and service make it incredibly easy and convenient. Three, unlike a traditional pool where the more people that are in it the more ways the winnings are split, our unique design limits the split to just 11 ways. Four, because of our unique pooling split the more people that enter, the more chances everyone has to win! Five, because it’s FUN! Oh, already said that one...well...it is.

Do you sell me the lottery tickets?

No, no, no. of course not. That would be silly. We’re NOT in the business of selling lottery tickets. We have no direct or indirect relationship with the lottery, although if one were offered we’d consider it...hello lottery commission. We actually just provide a free courier service that saves you all the headache of running to the store, standing in line, listening to the baby crying behind you, storing your ticket, checking it to see if you won anything, going back to the store to redeem your $2 and do it all over again. Whew! (Hey Mark, that seems like a lot of work for $11.99, are you sure we can make some money at this thing?) A Mega Millions lottery ticket costs a buck, $1, one GW (no, not that GW, the original one), Powerball is more proud of their lottery so they charge $2 per ticket and that’s what we charge you (again, how are we making money?). Now if you’d like to pay us a little something extra, you know, like a tip, that could be arranged. My name is Dave, my address is...just kidding.

You said free courier service, what’s with the subscription charge?

Of course nothing is free, someone is always paying for it whether it’s your mommy, the gubment, or your trust fund. We charge for our software because it’s awesome and worth it... BUT, you can use our courier service for free. It’s quite simple really, just send us a self- addressed post card with your name, address, phone, credit card number and lottery numbers and our little ticket runners will buy your tickets too. I guess that’s technically not free either, you have to pay for a postcard and a stamp but c’mon, how cheap are you?

How do I know you purchased a ticket for me?

You just have to trust us on this one. Seriously, remember when a handshake was good enough, now we need all these lawyers for the simplest things, sheesh. Actually our attorneys didn’t think the handshake would cut it either, especially since we’ll, unfortunately, never meet you in real life...unless, of course, you win the big one. Then we’ll be BFF’s! So the buzzkill’s, I mean the legal department, said to store a digital facsimile of all your tickets which are accessible through your player dashboard(coming soon). The physical copy is stored in our secure facility while awaiting potential redemption. Hopefully for that big one...wink wink my BFF!

Can I play the lottery if I am not a US citizen or resident?

If you’re breathing, can reach the internet, are over 18, like to have fun and like the thrill of possibly changing your life financially then yes...as a citizen of this universe you can join our LottoLishus Universe.

What do I need to start playing?

Simple, you need to be age 18, have internet access and a valid credit card. Oh, and the ability to pick the jackpot winning numbers is helpful too but not necessary.

How often are lottery drawings?

Here’s the great news, we play Mega Millions, you know, the lottery that smashed the record for the largest jackpot ever at $640 million (think that could change your life a bit. Yeah, ya think?). And we also play Powerball, the other massive lottery. Anyway, you have four chances every week, Tuesday and Friday night for Mega Millions and Wednesday and Saturday night with Powerball for a life altering event to occur. Great news, if you join LottoLishus you don’t have to do a dang thing except pick your numbers from the convenience of just about any digital device with internet access and make sure your credit card is good. We do EVERYTHING else for you. Just like your Mommy when you were a baby. Waaah. But no, YOU will be the happiest baby ever because you could win a boatload of cash!

How will I know if I won anything?

Seriously, you didn’t ask that question in today’s age of oversaturated communication channels. You pick it and we’ll let ya know. How about them apples?

How do I collect winnings?

We’ll meet you in a dark alley with a dark briefcase. I’ll give you the high sign and you’ll give me the secret password. Wait, that sounds like the movie I watched the other night. What’s that one with you know who. Aw anyway...it’s part of our awesome service. You don’t have to do a darn thing except tell us what to do with it when we collect it if for you. You’ve got two simple options; one, use it to cover your subscription service and lottery tickets (everyone’s favorite when you play for FREE!) or two request an electronic transfer. If you take the money there are some transfer fees you pay but what do you care? It’s FREE money...the best kind! If you’re lucky enough to be a part of winning ticket that is $600 or even more zeroes up to $1 million, we’ll collect your cash prize directly from the California Lottery Commission. It takes them about 6-8 weeks to cut a check and get it to us. Any cash prizes less than $600 will be immediately available in your player dashboard the day after the winning draw. And when we hit the big prizes over $1 million dollars (and we will!) the Ca Lottery Commission will handle payments directly to our winning players. So get ready to hop on a plane to collect that big ol’ check and pop the champagne with us!

Do I have to pay taxes on winnings?

We love Uncle Sam but he has a massive hole in his pocket. Every time he puts money in his pocket it drops out the bottom! So to satisfy this black hole we must do our part and shave off 28% of all winnings over $5000 and stuff it in his pocket never to be seen again(the CA Lottery actually takes care of this part. Guess they don’t trust players to pay their taxes? Less than $5k, it’s up to you though!). If you’re not a U.S. citizen, Uncle Sam likes you even more and would like 30% of your winnings. Thank you world citizens for sustaining Uncle Sam’s insatiable need for cash!

I have friends that I’d like to have join my lottery Universe, what do I do?

Jump up and down and scream like a crazy person! If that doesn’t work we’ve got super easy ways, all digital of course, to attract new Player Moon’s to your lottery Universe.

You guys are corny, what’s with the Universe theme?

Corny, what are we on an episode of Happy Days? Well some people have called me Richie Cunngingham over the years. Just like the Universe, the LottoLishus pool could almost grow to infinity and beyond with its unique design (at least 6 billion anyway). The Universe theme grew out of trying to find an easy way to explain how our pooling software works. Late nights, lot’s of caffeine, lot’s of geeks who like Star Trek, Star Wars, Lost in Space, the Jetsons and wah lah...a cool way to play the lottery and build a pool. Your welcome...ENJOY!

What if I want to cancel my subscription?

Well then we’re really not going to like you anymore, humph. But, if for some strange reason this isn’t the most awesomest thing you’ve ever been a part of in your whole life then we make it simple. All you have to do is uncheck auto-renew on your player dashboard and your subscription will not be renewed. And if you do want to kiss and make up, you’ve got 60 days to restart your current subscription before it’s purged from our system. After that we have to start a brand new relationship. Maybe the second time will be better, just like that girlfriend/boyfriend you went back to. That worked out well I’m sure. We’ll be better...promise.

Who Owns LottoLishus?

Only the coolest guys and gals (nerds) in the world! That’s what our Mom’s told us but they also told us it’s time to move out of the basement too so you be the judge. Now quit asking so many dang questions and go have some fun growing your LottoLishus Universe and winning some money. And when you hit the Mega Millions, don’t forget your BFF Dave!
