Lottoland Time Zone Error Loses Aussie Player US Mega Millions
The window for error is quite big as AWST can either be 13, 14, or 15 hours ahead of EST.
It’s What He Signed Up for
However, Lottoland has put the onus on Mr G. The secondary lotto company argues that the error on their part is irrelevant because its terms and conditions explicitly state that bets won’t be accepted after a draw has begun “irrespective of a wrong deadline displayed on the website.”
The way Lottoland works is by providing customers a chance to bet on lottery draws across the globe by making mock versions of the lotto. Customers win the same jackpot as if they had won the real draw, despite never engaging with the actual lotto itself.
The commission agrees with the company, saying that their conditions must be upheld. “The complainant, by signing up to Lottoland’s website, agreed to all of its terms and conditions and it is a matter for him to ensure that he is conversant with them,” the report read.
