FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Frequently Asked Questions…
Are lottery clubs and pools legal?
Yes. States with lotteries recognize lottery clubs and pool playing. Lotto Magic does not sell lottery tickets. Only retailers who have been contracted by the Florida Lottery Commission are authorized to sell tickets. Lotto Magic promotes lottery club play with our computerized system to enhance our club member’s chances of winning. If there are no lotteries in your state, this may be your only way to play the lottery.
Doesn’t the United States Postal Service have rules regarding lotteries?
Yes, several are in the US Code. Sec. 3005 regarding lotteries has been on the books for about 50 years. It was written to prevent people from starting their own lotteries. Lotto Magic is not conducting a lottery — we are merely a club playing the Florida lottery. Another statute frequently referred to is Sec. 1302 – Mailing lottery tickets or related matter. We do not mail any lottery tickets or Florida lottery materials through the mail.
How do I find out what numbers you are playing for me?
You will receive a welcome letter that will have your numbers on them. Each month you will also receive a report that shows the previous month’s winning numbers, your team members and their lotto numbers, your enroller bonuses, commissions, and winning ticket profit sharing. Your account balance will be shown as well as how much money is needed to renew your club membership for the next month. Winning numbers can be verified on the internet at www.flalottery.com, the official website of the Florida State Lottery.
Can you guarantee any winnings?
No. With all state lotteries, there are many losers compared to the few winners. No one can guarantee a winner. History has shown that the club method (or pooling) of lottery play produces more winning tickets than any other method. Being patient and playing the lottery through a club gives you a better chance of being part of the jackpot prize.
Who is eligible to join Lotto Magic?
Our club has members worldwide. The only requirement to claim a prize in a lottery is that you are 18 years of age (and have a winning ticket!)
Can I play my own numbers?
Yes, however, we don’t recommend it. We also will not play your selection if another Lotto Magic member has your numbers. This is one of our computerized advantages — no duplicate numbers among our members. Our computer system also takes into account past winning number combinations — and does not play them again. According to Gail Howard (author of books on lotteries), past drawn number combinations probably won’t appear for another 1,000 to 1,500 years.
How do I know that you are an honest company?
Read the testimonials from our players. Some of our members have been with us since our first year! We have operated this club since January 1996 and have purchased every ticket that we claimed. In fact, ticket purchases are kept in our fireproof safe just in case anyone wants to see them!
