An older people’s nurse from Cologne correctly filled in the figures for the Eurojackpot at Lottoland. In its opinion, 55 million euro would have had to win itself. But too early pleased because the second lottery with seat in Malta refuses the disbursement. However, there is in the meantime, a statement in this connection. Accordingly, the player delivered her appearance simply and movingly one day too late. If the draw has really already taken place, there is, of course, no entitlement to the payment of the millions in winnings.
8, 23, 40, 41, 42, as well as the special numbers 2 and 10, were played and drawn. But the Eurojackpot will already be played on Friday. However, the coupon was probably only handed in on Saturday. Precarious at this history is that the woman from Cologne speaks of a Quicktipp. Numbers are selected in the random principle. Was she really unlucky that the computer selected the numbers from the previous day? And did she simply not know that the Eurojackpot draw would take place on Friday?
55 million euros disappear into thin air within one day
“In my dreams, I already bought a Lamborghini.” So the winner told the Kölner Express. Also, a vacation on the Maldives is said to have been included in the player’s dreams. But the desired confirmation of win and congratulations from the provider Lottoland never arrived. In the opinion of the Cologne-based company, the gambling provider refused to pay her out. The distribution was even distributed differently.
Because after further inquiry, Lottoland announced itself to the word: With the current Eurojackpot drawing your Eurojackpot Tippschein, which you delivered, did not participate unfortunately due to transaction problems. At least that’s how the player describes it. So there was only one winner in this draw, and he just came from the Czech Republic.
The media have already tuned in to a fraud on the part of Lottoland. But the offerer defends itself. “The player has on June 14th on a drawing of Lotto 6aus49 GO! Submitted. That means, under this order number there was and is no Eurojackpot tip. Furthermore, the lottery broker accuses the lady of cheating herself. It is said that forwarded e-mails of the player were falsified by copying and pasting. For Lottoland the case seems to be clear: “Lottery numbers from the past draw are relatively easy to type”. But the 26-year-old from Cologne remains persistent. She contradicts the accusations: “That’s getting better and better. Now I’m supposed to cheat. I’ll take a lawyer and sue Lottoland.”
A day wasted? If the player guessed on June 14th, it was the day of the Eurojackpot draw. But did she hand in her betting ticket in time?
Lottoland is trying to solve the Eurojackpot puzzle comprehensively
The bad publicity has caused Lottoland to go on the offensive. A spokeswoman explained: “The player did not win at Lottoland. It can be explained on the basis of different indications, why this statement is wrong. In fact, the player has given a tip on the Eurojackpot, but on Saturday, June 15th – one day after the draw.
The numbers already drawn from the day before were typed.” Furthermore, the company explains: “Lottoland did not send the e-mail with the information on the alleged transaction problems. The e-mail text must have been created by someone else, which is easily possible with forwarded e-mails”. It is denied that transaction problems existed.
Lottoland has turned the tables. It is to be examined even a legal procedure against the Cologne woman. Also, WestLotto said last week that Lottoland was a foreign operator offering its products in Germany without a licence. The company also contradicted this. There are licenses from Great Britain, Ireland and Italy. And thanks to the European freedom to provide services, the secondary lottery regards its services in Germany as legal. The winnings are insured and are usually paid out. Lottoland is putting the state monopoly to the test.
Gambling supervision in Malta: It would have been right to turn to the respective supervisory authority. They could have clarified the case without much fuss.
Eurojackpot win: Who’s lying and who’s telling the truth?
The player insists on her point of view. She has submitted the ticket with the correct numbers in the Eurojackpot. However, she is not allowed to pay out the winnings. If there was a second winner from the Czech Republic, however, the sum would only have been half of the 55 million euros. Still enough not to have to go to work anymore. It remains to be seen whether she will really take legal action against Lottoland.
The second lottery itself denies all accusations. According to Lottoland, the player has handed in a ticket, but one day too late. This also does not seem to have been given as a quick tip, as claimed. The company from Malte suspects that the Cologne woman deliberately chose the numbers from the previous day. There are two possibilities here.
Firstly, she did not know that the drawings were already taking place on Friday and chose identical numbers by chance. Secondly, she was aware of the late submission and wanted to cheat the company. As there were discrepancies with the mails and the player’s statements, Lottoland is now considering legal action.
