The lottery Universe post all those jackpot numbers on their website to attract you buy tickets using their service, but  they don’t buy real tickets. The maixmam payout stated at ther terms is $1M. How can you do business like this? This is a crime. These guys should be punished by doing this. You will be never able to withdraw your samll winings because they have a $20.00 limit and you have to pay fees to do that.  The worst is you have to mail a form to a UK address.

      The only reason I'll leave this thread on the forums is to be sure that everyone knows what a horrible scam that site is.

      Let me repeat,

      Lottery Universe is a scam.

      They purposely make you think you're playing the real state lottery games, but the fact is that you are not playing anything.

      They do not buy tickets for lottery games.

      They are running their own private lottery (which is illegal in the USA), and the most they will ever pay you is $1 million.  They hide that little fact deep in the fine print, where most people are unlikely to see it.

      It's not even a good private lottery, because the astronomically bad state lotto odds are applied against the minuscule Lottery Universe prizes. 

      So let's so you beat the 176 million to 1 Mega Millions odds to win the jackpot.  You expect to be paid the nice Mega Millions jackpot?  Well, the best you're going to do is get $1 million, and that's assuming that they don't fold their tent and pack up their web site.

      Not only should you NEVER use Lottery Universe, but as a good "netizen", you should make sure that you spread the word as much as you can about that scam outfit, to keep others from falling prey.
