So I admit I registered with thelotter to see if/how it would really work.
While registering and typing in all my info I somehow hit enter or the website cut off my password after x amount of letters.
So I tried to login with my password and it didn't work, I tried multiple times to have a replacement password/reset link emailed to me, ddn't work.
So I then contacted a customer agent in the web chat who told me she reset my password and to try again, I didn't work, once again, requesting a reset email didn't work.
So then she tells me she can help me guess my password, gives me the first three digits and the last. So I realize that the last letter is right in the middle of my password that I typed and that I somehow must have pressed enter or there was an input lag or whatever that "clipped" my password without me knowing.
Long story short: thelotter saves passwords in their database in clear text. I guess that is something to look out for.
