At first a small start-up, Lottoland has done wonders in only six years. Now it is a recognized leader when it comes to online jackpot betting platforms with hundreds of employees all over the globe. With over 10 million customers in 2019, over a billion dollars have been paid out to lucky winners. This is a business fully licensed and authorised by the government which is just one of the factors that guarantees a full payout. Its insurance-based business model makes it possible for lucky winners worldwide to receive their jackpots. In 2017, Lottoland received the ‘Rising Star’ at the EGR Operator Awards in Sydney, which is, by the looks of it, only the beginning.
