REASON FOR WARNING:
This company claims there are no
Extra FEE's to play Australiain 6 from 45 Lotto.
But by viewing the following Web Page at their site, we are now that this
Company and other Overseas Companies do a very HEAVY MARK up of the actual
entry cost to play.
For just US $79 you
can play your lucky numbers in two games for 16 consecutive draws over 4
You are taken their Home Page, from there click on the icon for Australia
This will lead you to another page, giving all the details playing THEIR
As Quoted from this Page:
Australian Lotto Details
Working on the
principle from several days ago ONE AUSTRALIAN dollar equalled $0.56(US)
From an Official Victorian Lotto Agent:
One game in Australian Saturday 6/45 cost 45
Taken from Official Australian Lottery
The Entry cost includes
1) A Minimum of 4 games
must be played in any week in Australian 6/45 Lotto
2) It does not matter how many games you play in Victoria there is also
what is Known as a Ticket TAX of $0.10 cents
3) Also different State Lottery Commissions are SLIGHTY different Prices
to play Australian 6/45 Lotto.
Therefore is we use the
above entry cost as a guide, and for the purpose of this exercise;-One
Australian Dollar equals $0.50 (US).
And the above figures are only for a 1 week entry
Then for argument Sake
$1.80(Aus) roughly equals around $0.80(US)
But they say on their Web Site TWO GAMES, is that 2 games of 6 numbers or
two lots/games of say 12 games. it is not very clear.
But our thoughts that
your entry cost Through Win Lotto/PIM INC is HEAVILY MARKED up, so that
they do not have to spell out that they are charging extra as in fee's.
Lets us look at the following which was taken from an Official Lottery
Four (4) games of 6 numbers played for 10 weeks will cost $16.90.
Working on principle of One Australian Dollar equals $0.50 American then
the cost in American dollars should be just under $34.00(US)
4 games at $1.80 played
over 16 6
consecutive draws, equals $28.80 or roughly just under $58.00(US)
their Main Page as the starting point
We clicked on the link to the left to view the the
is major Concern to us that the actual Prize Money and the winners
Differ GREATLY to the Tattersalls Official Web Site.
This table of Results taken from the
Win Lotto/PIM INC Web Pages.
Although The Draw Date is Correct for Saturday 6/45
There is no Draw Number, which was for the 8th June 2002, was 2179. Even
the Publish Winning Numbers in Drawn Order (nice) are Correct the result
of the results on their page is TOTALLY in-correct. Therefore we must
wonder they have DOWN Graded the prize amount but UPPED the Amount of
Winners for each Division, and we will that when we view the results taken
from The Official Web Pages of Tattersalls.
Does this mean that Win Lotto/PIM Inc are making more money by doing this,
WIN LOTTO RESULTS for Draw conducted on 08-June-2002
And we believe the Dollar amounts quoted are American Dollars, but why the
differences in the amount of Winners
