There are lots of complicated terms on the Internet, many of which can be clarified with a little bit of searching but they don’t always put the terms into context or explain exactly how they work or provide anything of value to the target audience.
A lottery messenger service is just one of those terms – does it alert you when there is a lottery taking place, does it just send you a message if you’ve won the lottery? Actually, it’s a bit of everything related to the lottery. Let me explain a little more using www.lottosend.com as an example.
Lottosend are a dedicated lottery messenger service and that means that they help people in one country to take part in lottery draws all over the world. It all gets started by opening an account which only takes a few minutes. You enter all of the usual details – name, location, banking details and so on – and then you can start to go through the draws and choose which one(s) you want to enter.
Having made your choice you need to pick your numbers. If you did this in a shop you would mark off the numbers on your ticket but because it’s online you just click on the ones you want and it makes up your online ticket.
Some people pick ‘lucky’ numbers, others choose birthdays, anniversaries and other numbers that have some kind of meaning to them. Alternatively you can pick them at random or use an ‘educated guess’ by studying the statistics related to that specific draw in terms of the most frequently drawn numbers so you can avoid or select those which seem logical.
This is then processed by Lottosend and they get a local agent to go out and buy your lottery ticket for your chosen draw – so you do actually have a physical still, even if you might never see it!
Your ticket is then scanned into the online system for you to see and then all you have to do is cross your fingers and hope that your numbers come out. If they do, the money will be added to your online account for you to use at your leisure.
So essentially, a lottery messenger service is like a lottery ticket postman in many ways. You ask for a ticket for a particular draw and they go out and get it for you. Simple as that!
