A new way of increasing your odds of winning the National Lottery
Having played the National Lottery for several years every now and then, we thought that there must be a better way to play. We had tried syndicates at work and at times it felt like we were never going to win anything, and lets face it,£10-£20 between 20 people doesn't go very far, even on the couple of occasions when we did win!

We had thought about playing the lottery online, but fed up with spam emails which claim that we have won a prize in an online lottery (or an online prize draw) that we had never entered, just made us very wary of doing anything along those lines.

Mind you when you stand in the queue at the Lottery terminal in your local supermarket, and see people handing over 4 or 5tickets all complete, together with £40 or so, you have to wonder just how desperate people are to win something - Does anyone ever win on these lottery schemes I wonder? Somehow I doubt it !

Virtual World Direct
We have found one online scheme that interested us enough to have a go. We did a lot of searching on the internet and although there are a lot of people promoting this site, there is very little negative feedback on it. It has also been in operation for quite a few years, and at £5 per week and the chance to play the lottery for free, we thought we would give it a go.

Well in for a penny, in for a pound, let's see what happens.

The site is Virtual World Direct - Online Lottery Syndicate.

Not sure how this will work out - you basically pay £5pw to play on both the Wednesday and Saturday National Lottery draws, with 44 lines in each draw, spread between a syndicate of 49 players.

OK- first question first, 2 x 49 x £5 = £490, whereas 2 x 44 lines = £88. Hmm - where does the rest of the money go?

OK£1 to the person who introduced you, and 50p to the person who introduced them (in fact it works a bit further up the tree, so say we are each paying £2.50 per week to play).

2 x 49 x £2.50 = £245

So the website owners stand to make quite a lot of money out of each syndicate.

However,I guess, if you take the costs of maintaining the website and the chance that not all syndicates will be full, that sort of makes up for some of the profits.

Still you pays your money, you makes your choice.

Let's see how it goes. I have created my own website (Playlotto) to promote this site, so hopefully, I can be one of the people earning commission to offset my weekly subscription.

Grand National Tomorrow
Well tomorrow is the Grand National - I remember the hey day of Red Rum and Shergar, but what is with the names of the horses nowadays - madeup names and some weird un-pronounceable names - I wonder if people are trying to test the commentators skills.

Anyway, I have decided to have a little flutter in the office sweepstake - paid my pound into the pot and what do I get? 'Philson Run' - hmm fingers crossed for tomorrow, you never know with that Aintree course - it can test the best of them.

If I win, I will keep you posted - not sure I will get very far on the top prize of £52.

Still you can't beat a tryer.

Breaking News from Virtual World Direct
Hang on... breaking news... an email from Virtual World Direct, telling me I have won something on the EuroMillions Draw.

Winning numbers for tonight were: 7 20 25 38 41
Star numbers 3 and 7

I didn't win anything on Wednesday's National Lottery draw, so I wonder what I have won in this draw?

OK a little disappointing, the syndicate only managed to match one main number (41). Ordinarily we would not have won anything, but at least under the way in which this lottery sydicate system operates, we have £5.40 to share out - meaning a grand total of (wait for it....) 14p each.

Hmm hardly going to send me on holiday this year is it - not even enough to catch the bus down to town. Mind you at least now I don't need to pop into town to buy the lottery ticket !

What happened in the 2007 Grand National?
Well at least my horse came fourth in today's Grand National - alas, I did not win anything in the office sweepstake - there is always tonight's national lottery draw - let's hope I do better than last night's winnings!

No luck this time
Hmm - no luck on last night's lottery - what a shame.

The winning numbers were: 13 16 23 29 36 49
Bonus ball was 14

Darn it - looks like I will have to go back to work tomorrow.

On the positive side, we have got two new prospects who have signed up to find out more details on the syndicate and get the latest lottery results emailed direct to their inbox. I just wonder if they will remember to enter the twice weekly free prize draw to win £1,000.

Some Better Luck on EuroMillions
Wahey - we won some more money on last night's National Lottery EuroMillions Draw - our syndicate won £132.10 for matching just 2numbers, so that is £3.39 each !!

I know it's not a massive amount, certainly not enough to retire, but 2 wins in 10 days shows that this system does work.

The numbers for last night's draw were:
23, 26, 32, 41, 45 with the two star numbers: 3 and 7

Good luck for tonight's draw.

Bad luck this time
Hmm no luck on Saturday's draw - however, I just had an email from Virtual World Direct. Apparently it is their fifth anniversary and to celebrate, they are offering a prize draw for everyone who signs up over the next five days (23rd April - 27th April 2007). Today's draw is for a Nintendo Wii - that darn console you either love or hate - guess it's a bit like marmite.

Anyway, if anyone wants a go - join in the fun via Virtual World Direct - eLottery Scheme

A little reflection on the National Lottery Syndicate Scheme
OK, so where are we and is this scheme working for us yet?

Well our latest winnings have been another £3.31 on last night's EuroMillions Draw (our syndicate won £129.10 for matching 2 main numbers).

We have a couple of people signed up for the free weekly draw and another 2 people signed up under our affiliate program,meaning that we earn £2 per week to offset against the cost of entry.

Well it is better than nothing - over the last week, we have therefore only had to pay out £10-(£3.31+£2) = £4.69 to have multiple entries in both the Wednesday and Saturday UK National Lottery draw and the Friday night EuroMillions Draw.

OK, so we are still not in the black,but at least it is getting cheaper to play and there is always the chance of winning a bigger sum !!

Another win on the National Lottery
Great another win on 11th May 2007 (only £6.80 for our syndicate matching one number on the EuroMillions Draw, but it all mounts up) -been a while since we have won anything on the National Lottery, so fingers crossed for this weekend.

We have also signed up a couple more people to the scheme - only need one more person and we will be playing for free !!

This system does actually seem to work by the look of it, so why not give it a try.

Welcome News After the Holiday
Well, having just returned from a holiday in the Lake District (who says it rains all the time?) I thought it would be worth taking stock of the current position.

Since starting this blog in April, we have won a grand total of £1.64 on the UK National Lottery - hmm not too good - only 2 wins. However, on the EuroMillions draw, we have fared rather better, with 9 wins, totaling £18.08 - that means that our Syndicate has won a total of £803.56 in around 10 weeks.

What is more, we have now signed up a total of 5 people to the syndicate scheme and are now playing effectively for free.

We also noticed that the free to enter twice weekly £1000 draw has also been rehashed, making it much more user friendly and appealing.

Hmm - maybe this Virtual World Direct - Affiliate Scheme system could just work.

Turning the National Lottery into a Business?
Well this e-lottery site is actually starting to show signs of turning into a business.

Over the past few weeks, we have signed up another few players - we are now up to 6 fellow affiliates and 5 players, earning us £13 a week to offset against the costs of playing (£10).

Since the last post(10th June), our lottery syndicate has won a further £48.70, so not too bad on that score either. We have received a cheque as well, so we know that the scheme is cosha.

Go on - give it a try - maybe you can do even better than we are doing - visit Virtual World Direct.

Update for August
So what has been happening?

Well postal strikes abound and the British summer has made us all want to head for sunnier climes, but without that big win, can we really afford it? The UK job market and economy looks fairly healthy at the moment, but house prices continue to soar out of the reach of many people.

Wouldn't it just be great to win the estimated £6.5 million pound lottery rollover this weekend?

Well, we have been pushing the merits of the Virtual World Direct lottery syndicate scheme hard and are pleased that at least 18 people have signed up for more information or playing the free to enter £1,000 draw since we started in April.

What is more, we have now signed up 8 people to the scheme, so our £5 per week entry fee is now earning us £9 per week in commission. This is working, so we have joined the EuroMillions draw syndicate as well for another £5 per week.

Since the post on28th June, our syndicate has now won a further £222.80 - not bad really as it doesn't even involve a trip down to the local shop to buy a ticket.

Go on, give it a chance - you never know your luck.

Making Money and Saving Your Bacon
OK, maybe not lottery related, but we thought we ought to share a couple of products which we have investigated recently:

Just some useful tips and ideas

OK,we all need to think about anti-virus software and a firewall, but do we take the plunge and spend money on it or risk our data and personal details with one of the free ones, or Microsoft's own firewall (which is heavily attacked).

Having looked at the options, we have taken the plunge of renewing our subscription with Symantec and purchased their Norton 360 product,which is quicker than previous versions of Norton Internet Security (so it does not tie the system up as much), has faster scanning, provides its own firewall and antivirus protection and much more.

The advantages of Norton 360 are that it also provides regular backups of your data (full or incremental backups) and also provides 2GB free online storage for you to store your most important files, in case of the all too drastic hard disk failure. One of the bonuses is that when you look at the price tag, of £59.99, this may appear very high, but often PC World has discounted offers and you also must remember that this now includes the facility to install it on 3 computers in the same household, so that works out at just under £20 per PC !!

Not too bad when you think of the damage that one virus can do.

The other trick for this month, has to be to look at switching to the Alliance & Leicester's current account- it still offers the best rate of interest of any current account(6.5% fixed until Jan 2009), excellent online service and you only need fund it with £500pm (most other similar accounts need minimum funding of £1000pm). Keep your eyes open for special offers too - they often offer very high interest bearing savings accounts if you open them at the same time as a current account.

Well worth the small bit of paperwork it takes to switch

Time to Take Stock
OK,we have been trying out this lottery scheme now for a while - and yes it is working for us - we have had a few wins over the months, although nothing to write home about alas - mind you it is nice to log onto Virtual World Direct every once in a while and see the number of people who are checking out the site having read our website or blog (thanks). It is also nice to see that we do sometimes win (unlike playing on the lottery on your own, where you are lucky to win £10 a year!!).

In fact we have introduced 111 people to the site and our syndicate has won £1050 on the EuroMillions Draw since April, but only £320 on the National Lottery draw.

I guess it is a bit like the other much better known social networking sites, such as Avon, which has proved a successful business model over the years, but does really rely on you referring other people to sign up with them in order to achieve better earnings. Surprising really that most of the people we introduce only join up as Players and not as affiliates - maybe they don't want to try and earn free entries into the lottery.

We have had a look at the new scheme which Virtual World Direct are offering - uVme and we must admit that we are confused as to what exactly it offers. It appears to be a social networking site where you can play games against other members and maybe win some money, but unlike Facebook and Faceparty, you have to pay to join the site and earn money for introducing others. Seems as though this is not well thought out - I cannot see the site appealing to many people and it is expensive to join.

Saving The Planet (or maybe just money?)
We have long promoted the benefits of working to benefit the planet - we have worked for many years with the British Trust for Conservation Volunteers, undertaking practical conservation tasks, up to our armpits in mud building a footpath, or even breaking the ice on a pond in the winter to do some pond clearance in the middle of a snow-storm.

For the saner amongst us out there, you really should look to save energy.Leaving appliances on standby is one of the major culprits with many televisions using over 10% of their normal power just to keep you from having to cross the room to press the on/off switch. With the advent of digital TV, this is made worse, as many set top boxes use almost as much power on standby as when being used !!

We have found an excellent little gadget - the 'Bye Bye Standby' which comes as a set of plugs which can be operated remotely using wireless technology - you can either turn them off individually or as part of a group. Ideal for switching off the sky box downstairs on a night after watching a film on the upstairs TV !! This is not too pricey and we have even found that the cheapest place to purchase Bye Bye Standby is Tesco Direct.With a starter kit consisting of one remote control and 3 remote plugs,this was simple to install and should save some money in the first six months.

Now all we need is someone to offer us a solar heating system - now that would be excellent, particularly as we have a south facing roof. However, it is hard to justify over £4,000 for such a system, even if it might help save the planet.

Can you play the National Lottery for Free and even run it as a business?
As we reach the end of 2007, we have decided to look back at the year and see whether Virtual World Direct has been worth the effort of marketing, writing this blog and promoting our own lottery syndicate.

Well,throughout the year, we have played on both the UK's National Lottery Syndicate and the EuroMillions draw syndicate at the princely sum of£10 per week to cover entries in the three draws per week.

We have received a commission cheque for the year, totaling £62.50, and have also won £41.30 during 2007. Against this, we have had to pay out£107.34 in entry fees (the rest of the fees were deducted from commission earned). Overall for 2007, we have therefore made a net loss of £3.54 - hardly anything to write home about, and have had the chanceof winning a lot more money tax free.

We have introduced 115 people to the scheme and have a downline of 10 people playing underneath us on a regular basis.

Overall,the system appears to be working - it is not as easy to promote as we would have hoped, but then a quick look at ebay shows just how many people are trying to promote the scheme on there in the hopes of building their own downline and earning enough commission each week in order to play the lottery for free.

We will look again at our methods of promotion and whether there is anything better we can do. We would welcome comments from people who have successfully introduced others to Virtual World Direct's Online Lottery Syndicate scheme and hopefully we can share ideas.

We are (nearly) managing 49 entries per week into the two UK National Lotto draws and 41 entries per week into the National Lottery EuroMillions draw, effectively for free. We are also building a business out of this, with more and more people being introduced via our website and blog. Give it another 12 months and we should hopefully see positive returns out of this.

Fingers crossed we can do better next year !

Diet Adverts
Well I was surprised today to spot online a typical diet advert 'Lose 10pounds in a week' - it must be wonderful to see these adverts and think, yeah I need to lose 10 pounds, I'm sure that will help - after all they are advertising on Google.

Well I can show you quite easily how to lose 10 pounds in a week, without any need for exercise or changing your diet - simply send £10 by PayPal to me.



Hang on - surely there's a catch??

Well no, if you do this you will definitely lose 10 pounds in a day, let alone a week!

Actually we are not talking of 10 pounds in weight, but 10 pounds in money.Should teach you to read the terms and conditions beforehand and make sure you know exactly what you are getting for your money.

At least with the Virtual World Direct's Online Lottery Syndicate scheme you know precisely that - for your 10 pounds a week, you are given the two sets of lottery numbers which you will be playing and can check them against the National Lottery midweek and Saturday draws (shown on TV) and against the National Lottery Euromillions Draw numbers on a Friday night.

Building up your online business
Well,2008 has seen a good start to our online lottery syndicate (despite the downturn in the world economy). We have recruited 8 new people to our syndicate since the start of the year and are getting regular enquiries. Not only are we now playing both the UK National Lottery and the EuroMillions Draw for free, but we are also now earning a steady£11 extra per week in commission.

We have been using two important tools to promote our online business and have been pleasantly surprised by how effective they have proved.

The main driver is probably this blog, which is syndicated across several sites making it easier to find and drive people to our website. However, a new angle this year has been to start advertising on Facebook, where the ads can be targetted and you can pay around 34 cents for someone clicking on your advert, which makes it highly cost effective.

It will be interesting to see how this year pans out for our syndicate, but the outlook is good so far!

Why not join our lottery syndicate as an affiliate and start playing for free!

Biggest Win on the Lottery So Far
Wahey- I've had a bit of good news yet - not enough to let me give up workand retire, but I won my biggest win so far on last night's EuroMillions draw - the syndicate won a total of £811.60 for matching 3balls.

All I need now is to win again tonight and it will cover my fuel bills for the week! Blimey, with the price of petrol I do wonder if its worth going to work sometimes - I'm currently spending £200+ a month on fuel - anyone got some better ideas (a bike is out of the question, as I'm 15 miles away from work)

Hmm - best cross my fingers and hope I carry on winning!

Why not join our lottery syndicate as an affiliate and start playing for free!

What a great Start to 2008
Looking back over the first 5 months of 2008, we were astounded to see the increased levels of activity in our Virtual World Direct online lottery syndicate scheme.

Since January, out syndicate has won a total of 9 times on the weekly Euromillions draw (worth £872.60) and a further 6 times on the twice weekly UK National Lottery Draw (bringing in another £240).

Commission received from introducing other people into the scheme has also blossomed, with £272 in commission received to date.

Fingers crossed, this could be our lucky year!

Could 2008 be our lucky year on the Lottery?
Well, we must admit, having done so well in the first five months of theyear, it has been a bit of a roller coaster ride at home, with ever increasing fuel prices and gas & electricity prices, we need to do something to keep the home fires burning.

At least we may not win the lottery, but we continue expanding our wins on the online syndicate's mutli-win system provided by Virtual World Direct, as well as earning some healthy commission - all that and we are playing the lottery for free !!

Since January 2008, we have now earned a total of £385 in commission - this is turning playing the UK National Lottery into a real business opportunity

But do you win with the system? Well in our experience, the answer has to be a definite yes - since the start of 2008, we have had 9 wins on the UK National Lottery (totalling £937 for our syndicate) and 14 wins on the Euromillions Draw (totalling £904 for our syndicate). That can't be bad!

I got a share of the £92million EuroMillions jackpot
Well,last night was a bit of a disappointment, I had purchased a EuroMillions lottery ticket from the local Tescos and my partner had entered a syndicate at work - so that was a total of 8 goes on the lottery between us.

Get the results this morning and lo and behold, although we matched two numbers on one line, there were no winning tickets..... What a shame..

On the other hand, the postman delivered a cheque from Virtual World Direct for £80.50 in commission from referring others and this morning I log on to find that my online lottery syndicate also won in last night's draw - only £7.20, but heck that's better than nothing.

Cost of entering for me? £1.50 for the ticket I bought at the Tesco till !!

At last, VWD have seen sense
One of the biggest problems in the past is that although the online lottery syndicate system allows you a great way of playing in a large syndicate to get lots of entries in the UK National Lottery lotto and EuroMillions draws, you could only ever play in one syndicate for each draw.

They have now rectified this, and you can play in multiple syndicates, by choosing how many you wish to subscribe to each week.This is ideal, especially as the £26m super Euromillions draw is due to happen tonight.

We have increased the number of syndicates we subscribe to for this draw, and will then reduce them next week to a more affordable level.

Great and welcome news - join our online lottery syndicates now!

Win £100m on Friday
Well,the £100 million maximum rollover has now been reached again on the National Lottery EuroMillions draw due to take place this Friday (26th September). Fingers crossed, we will win a share of this massive prize.

Why not join in the fun and increase your chances - have 44 lines for only a fiver by joining our online lottery syndicate

At least it is better than trying to make money by being an Avon rep - I mean, how many times can you sell lip gloss to 50 customers? Balance that against how many times they will enter the National Lottery !!

A look back at the credit crunch
With the credit crunch in full swing and as people start worrying about jobs and the recession it all seems doom and gloom. At least the National Lottery offers some chance of escaping from it all, and our fellow affiliates for the scheme have reported a rising number of people subscribing to the Virtual World online lottery syndicates - hoping that they will win the big one.

I guess that £5 a week is no big sum for 44 chances on the National Lottery is neither here nor there for many people - what is it, two pints of beer down your local (if it is still open), and less than going to the cinema to watch Slumdog Millionaire (this year's feel good movie - well worth watching by the way). At least now you can join more than one syndicate at a time through the Virtual World online lottery syndicate scheme so this makes it even more attractive, as you can have an entry for your partner as well without having to become an affiliate.

Remember,somewhere it is written that you will win (or so it says in Slumdog Millionaire) - we may not have the same levels of poverty here in the UK as in Mumbai, but we still have plenty of people wanting to escape from their real lives...

Oh well a night in with Sky TV looks like a better bet for a better escape. It seems at long last they have been listening to people bemoaning the prices for Digital TV and not only brought back the £50 Marks and Spencer voucher for new customers signing up via the Sky TV website but the Sky+ box which has a hard drive recorder in it to pause live TV(or record a second channel) no longer has a monthly subscription charge. At least now, I am ready for when Lost comes back on Sky One -why oh why do they not show this on Freeview or Freesat (it carries Sky Three, but they will not show even old series of Lost - what a missed opportunity!)

Best of luck for 2009

Spanish Lottery SuperDraws
New this month through Virtual World Direct is the ability to play in the Spanish monthly Superdraws every month for £20.

The Spanish Superdraw syndicates have prize funds ranging from a gigantic €84 Million to a monumental €2.6 Billion.

Playing the smarter way with an e-lottery syndicate means you're guaranteed to win at LEAST 3 cash prizes in the next draw on March 7th.

Like the Christmas El Gordo draws, tickets are limited, which means that syndicate places will be even MORE limited and we expect to sell out. But, with our Spanish Superdraw syndicates you will never miss out on playing in these huge games each month.

Join Virtual World Direct online lottery syndicates and find out more.

Some great news from Virtual World Direct
Now is one of the best times to become an affiliate of VWD and introduce other people to the scheme - not only can you play the lottery for nothing, but VWD have now waived the annual affiliate fee.

How does this work?

For every person that you introduce to the scheme, you receive commission of £1 for each entry into the lottery draws which they make.

To find out more - visit: http://www.smarterwaytomakemoney.com/Default.aspx?m=24487RM

This means that because I have introduced 5 other people to this online lottery syndicate, not only has it cost me NOTHING to enter these draws, but in fact, I earn an £158every 4 weeks from commission (£60 of this goes towards my entry fees in the twice weekly National Lottery draw, the Friday's Euromillions draw and the new monthly Spanish lottery draw with its guaranteed prize and limited tickets).

Why not become an affiliate today? http://www.v-w-d.com/g.asp?m=24487RM

Can you beat the recession?
Well,now that we are in the heart of the recession which has been driven by fuel companies trying to squeeze every last drop out of the economy and the banks which have then realised that they cannot keep lending more than people can afford to pay, maybe now is the time for a reality check.

The petrol companies will continue to use the motorist for profit, unless we boycott the main forecourts and use the cheapest petrol stations - Petrol Prices.com is a useful site to find the best prices in your area. They always find an excuse - the latest excuse for continued price rises, despite the fact that oil is now half the price it was this time last year, is the British weather - with the hot weather, we all drive further, and so demand is up, pushing petrol back above £1 per litre (yes for the yanks moaning about their $2.50 a GALLON, we pay £1 per LITRE!). The dollar exchange rate is another excuse, but they still think the British motorist will continue to pay exhorbitant prices with no alternative.The competition in the market disappeared years ago. With the recession, petrol usage in the UK must have dropped substantially, but do they care whether people can afford to go to work? Not on your nelly!

Gas and Electricity prices continue to be high - with no signs of them returning anywhere near the early 2008 levels - again, the only way the consumer can apply pressure is by constantly checking prices and switching to the cheapest supplier - if we all did this, then it may drive down prices as they might want our custom - USwitch is an invaluable tool here.

It is not all doom and gloom however.

The low exchange rates for the pound mean that whilst imports are a lot more expensive, oversees customers are seeing a significant reduction in the price to them - certainly our own sales have increased substantially to oversees customers - those in the Euro zone have seen an almost 40% reduction in our prices, whilst those in the USA have seen closer to a 50% reduction.

This can be a boon to UK based business if people seize the chance and could even help us to being a producer nation again, as the cost of getting goods made in the UK is becoming more economical. Prices of shipping goods abroad can also be reduced through using couriers such as Parcel2Go.

A recession is also a boon to setting up smaller businesses, perhaps using your redundancy money to help fund the start up - Internet Business Angels offer advice on advertising your business and sites such as Go Freelance can assist with finding other freelancers to work with you.

There might be low interest rates in the UK, although we have gone back to our original bank to make most of it by fixing our mortgage at an all time low of 4.59% fixed for 5 years. I guess the trading history with that bank helped here - we were seen as a lower risk than a new customer. Additional cash can still earn an amazing 5% gross interest by opening an Alliance & Leicester Premier Direct current account.

Holidays in the UK are also now more attractive, as people don't get as many euros for their money, and with a long hot summer forecast for the UK,why go abroad, when you can enjoy some of the wonderful UK landscape and help keep the economy going by spending your money here !

Finally, in a recession, people are tempted more and more to win the lottery and escape - this makes the online lottery syndicate more attractive than ever and we are seeing an up-surge in people joining the scheme. With no more affiliate fees, it is now better than ever to join and sell the scheme to others.

Now wouldnt it be nice to win €140 Million
This Summer there is only one lottery with a GUARANTEED prize fund of €140Million: the long-awaited 'Sorteo Extraordinario' July Extraordinary draw, which takes place in Spain on Saturday, 4th July 2009.

Playing this lottery gives you the best possible chance of scooping your shareof the jackpot because, unlike most lotteries, instead of having 1jackpot the July Extraordinary draw has 10 jackpots.

Yet another win
Well, several weeks have passed since my last post, and yes, I have received winnings on the National Lottery midweek draw, the EuroMillions draw and the Spanish lottery.

With 49 people in each syndicate, this does eat into your winnings, and commonly the prize ends up being less than £1, but heck, that is more that I ever get when playing the national lottery on my own!

What surprises me is why VirtualWorld Direct do not offer a syndicate entry into the Thunderball draw - with the Thunderball being between 1-15, they could actually play a syndicate of 15 or 30 players and you would be guaranteed at least one (or two) lines every week with the Thunderball. It would improve the rate you win, and reduce how many people share in the draw,and therefore make the whole thing more appealling.

August - A good month for the lottery, not so the weather!
Well, having spent most of August indoors due to the British summer not living up to expectations, we have been hard at work promoting the lottery syndicate and exploring some of its better features.

It has also paid off...

We reduced the entries in the Spanish lottery syndicate to 1 entry as apparently they do not run the monthly draw in August, and used that money to enter another syndicate in the UK lottery.

We matched 3 balls on the UK National Lottery, and through the lottery syndicate method, this meant an extra £614 for our syndicate, plus one more win of £40 in August, we thought this was not too bad going

Add to that the fact that we also won four times on the Euromillions Lottery Draw - two lots of £123 for matching just two of the mainballs, and a further £13.80 for matching a single main ball in another 2 draws.

That means a total amount won for our syndicates during August of£913.80, which we would never have achieved entering the lottery draws direct! And this is just for 4 entries in the VirtualWorld online lottery syndicates

Add to this, £154 received in commission for introducing other playersto the online syndicate, and you can easily see how August was a bumper month for us.

OK - we are now 8 months through the year, so what have we got back for our weekly subscription to the VirtualWorld online lottery syndicates ?

Individual share of the winnings from UK National Lottery £22.37
Individual share of the winnings from Euromillions Lottery Draw £26.15
Individual share of the winnings from Spanish monthly Lottery £14.80
Commission: £1,406
Entry fees Paid £840

So that means, for 2009 to date, we are up by a total of £629.32 - you can really see how this system works to transform playing the lottery from a game of chance to a real business opportunity, even in these times of recession where every penny counts.

Bring on the British summer is all we can say!!

Euromillions £90 million rollover again
Well the EuroMillions has again reached a massive rollover of£90million estimated jackpot. I am sure that we would all like to win that for Christmas, or even a share - so to ensure that you have the greatest chance of winning a prize in this jackpot, why not join the onlinesyndicates which give you the best chance by providing you with 36entries into the draw for only £5.

It is also good news to hear that the syndicates for the Euromillions Draw will also be amended to take account of the new Millionaire Raffle from National Lottery which will also include an entry into a raffle to win one player a guaranteed £1m per week, meaning you get another 36chances to win a share of that £1m prize! This takes effect from 7th November, so who knows what November will bring to members of the VirtualWorld online Euromillions sydnicate.

Finally, a reminder that tickets for the Spanish super El Gordo lottery draw held annually at Christmas are now selling out fast, so you need to ensure you purchase your tickets early enough to get a chance at winning a share of £2Billion.

EuroMillions - Why
When it was announced only last week that a syndicate in Liverpool and a lucky couple in South Wales had shared the top EuroMillions prize of £90 million (£45 million each) - they must have been over the moon. How lovely it would have been to go to work on the Monday, stick your fingers up to the bosses and tell them to stick their jobs - or maybe,just maybe, if you get 6 months full pay when off sick, you might just have to go on extended sick leave due to the stress of winning all that money!!

What would you do in such circumstances?

The other side to the coin is what you do about financial planning and your family. How many people would be expecting to share in your wealth, and if you gave your nearest and dearest even £1 million, would-they then think how stingy you were because of the amount you had won?Playing in a syndicate certainly has its advantages in that case! You would also need to think about inheritance tax planning - if you give money away and die within 7 years, the tax man might just grab 40% of it or even the full £45 million if you passed away tomorrow. But then advice on tax planning and investment planning is also expensive -certainly you would not want to go somewhere that was going to charge 5% or more of the amount invested!

I guess in the long term, the best way might be to consider setting up a company which would have the £45 million to invest - it could purchase houses for you and family which were let rent free and then you could hand out shares in the company to friends and family if you wanted to spread your wealth - although again that has its pitfalls around the value of the shares on death, and also Corporation Tax and tax on dividends.

I mean, after having bought houses and cars for yourself, your family (or paid off their mortgages and debts), it would be drop in the ocean compared to the capital - you could expect to earn at least £5000 a day in interest without even trying! What would you do with the rest of the money?

Who knows - we can all but dream of what we would do.... It just reminds me of Brewster's millions, as fast as you could spend, you would be probably earning it back in interest!

Oh well - you have to be in it to win it, so they say... And when I won it I might just have to give some serious thought as to what I was going to do with it.

At least with the EuroMillions, this chance comes up often enough and through being in an online lottery syndicate, you have a much greater chance of winning a prize.

Talking of EuroMillions - I am not sure what they hope to achieve with the increase in the ticket price from £1.50 to £2 - yes, you get a raffle ticket which guarantees to pay one UK player £1million - but I am not sure if everyone wants to pay £2 for a ticket that they never win on.

At least Virtual World Direct has responded to this - you still only pay £5a week for 36 entries into the Euromillions Draw but now you also get36 raffle tickets. To pay for this, they have increased the number of people in each syndicate to 59 which means you get a smaller share of the winnings - however, that has to be worth it, with EuroMillions still being one of the biggest lottery draws over Europe.

I still don't know why they don't expand into the thunderball draw,which gives better odds of winning the top prize. It would seem most suited to an online lottery syndicate scheme, as you could then be guaranteed to match the thunderball at least once every game!

Playing the National Lottery for Free
We have been asked a few times as to whether it is possible to play the National Lottery for free using the Virtual World Direct system, or whether in fact it is a scam.

Well the proof is in the pudding, so they say.

We have managed to refer a number of people to the Virtual World Direct online syndicate site, without needing a great deal of effort. This blog certainly appears to help drive traffic, and we don'tdo any paid for advertising - we just rely on the search engines finding relevant content on our pages.

Currently we have 41 syndicate members for whom we receive commission each week through the Virtual World Direct system, of which 9 are themselves VWD affiliates. It is interesting that quite a few of the affiliates have not yet taken the opportunity of paying to participate in the lottery themselves, and as they say, you have to be in it to win it.

From that small group of people, we receive on average £181 per month in commission, out of which it is easy to pay the £80 per month we pay for playing in online lottery syndicates (we take part in the National Lottery UK draw syndicate, the EuroMillions draw syndicate, the El Gordo lottery syndicate and the Spanish lottery syndicate), leaving a net profit of around £100 per month.

It is not difficult to refer people to the scheme, when they see the benefits of the multi-win online lottery system and also the opportunity to refer others and play for free, in just the same way as we have (in fact, if they follow our lead, people can make a profit each month!).

But then, the flip side has to be the question as to whether someone finds a benefit from playing in the National Lottery online syndicates?

  • Does it increase their chances of winning? A most definite yes -we tend to win at least once every 13 draws
  • Can they win real money? Yes, your winnings are held on the system and you can easily request a cheque at any time, or payment via Moneybookers.
  • Is it worth it? Well in 11 months of 2009, our syndicates have won
    UK National Lottery - £1334 (21 wins this year)
    EuroMillions Draw - £1067.74 (35 wins this year)
    Spanish Lottery - £884 (8 wins this year)
Well I guess the proof is definitely in the pudding - how many others can say that they have earned a total of nearly £200 from the National Lottery in 2009, without spending a penny?

Could Virtual World Direct be described as a scam?
There are varying comments about Virtual World Direct and how it may fall into the same category as other MLM schemes and be a scam whereby only the people at the top of the tree make money, from the people at the bottom of the tree paying their weekly fee and advertising the scheme to try and attract other users.

Well if it is a scam, it is working really well for a lot of people -it was set up in April 2002 by Tom Brodie and Len Fitzgerald and continues to be popular.

Unlike many other MLM schemes, you do not have to introduce other people to make money - you can do it by the various syndicate wins on the National Lottery and EuroMillions draws - although admittedly, with the average win being only £40, it does not go far between 49 players in a syndicate.

For those unfamiliar with virtual world direct, it is basically an onlineLottery syndicate, covering both the main UK Lotto and Euro Millionsdraws every week. Players who join the eLottery benefit from a massively increased chance of winning compared to playing on their own (winnings are sent out via cheque), and never have to remember to buy their tickets again. For affiliates, it gets even better – You get paid20% commission on the e-Lottery subscription fees of every player you refer for life.

We haven't paid into the scheme now for quite some while, and still religiously earn both commission and winnings, so where is the scam? We can check the syndicate's numbers against each draw every week and if need be there would be the ability to sue the site if they did fail to distribute a big win - but this has not happened (and try searching the internet to find someone who failed to receive their commission or winnings from the site!).

So is it a big scam?

Well we are wholly independent - our contact details are freely available on the rwapsoftware.co.uk website if you want to check. We don't have any other link with VWD other than having joined as an affiliate member. We receive regular payments and just sit back and dream of a big syndicate win.

Basically, so long as you can find 5 other people to sign up to thes cheme (hardly a massive number), you can play the National Lottery for free and never have to worry about remembering to buy your ticket (or losing it) again.

GO on - give VirtualWorldDirect online lottery syndicates a go and see if your experiences match ours. Feel free to leave a comment on this blog as tohow you get on.

We do not spend any money on advertising this - particularly as Google adwords block advertising about gambling sites (although still advertise the National Lottery - we are not quite sure what the difference is here). Yes we spend an hour or so a month promoting the site through our blog and other means, but that is not exactly a lot of effort.

Biggest Win on the National Lottery So Far
We have become accustomed to receiving weekly emails from Virtual World Direct, informing us that our syndicate has won something on the twice weekly National Lottery draws, but we have to admit that the prizes tend to be relatively small, once split 49 ways.  However, we were pleasantly surprised this morning to log onto the site, to find that our syndicate won over £5700 last night, meaning just over £117 for us- in all the years of playing the lottery, we have never won more than £10, so this is a more than welcome change.

In face, August has proved to be quite a lucky month for use, with 9wins across the syndicates (Euro Millions, Spanish Lottery and National Lottery) we enter, with the latest win bringing our August winnings to just over £125.

Some more draws left in August - this could be our best month to date.

Even better is the fact that we get to play for free - it does not cost us a penny because we have introduced other players to the scheme - in fact, on top of our winnings, we are currently averaging monthly commission of around £88 from Virtual World Direct (and that is after paying our entry fees).

GO on - give Virtual World Direct online lottery syndicates a go and see if your experiences match ours. Feel free to leave a comment on this blog as to how you get on.

A sad day in December
Well December 2010 has marked the end of two great internet businesses, sadly.

Rpoints.com, one of the best known cash-back sites where you earnt cash back on everyday internet shopping has now ceased to trade and unfortunately if you had any cash back left in your account, you have lost it as Rpoints.com was trading insolvently for a while. 

That means that anyone looking for that type of scheme is best looking at some of the alternative cash back sites, such as TheMutual.net which has been running for several years now - at least as an AIM quoted company, with its finger in other pies, they have more rules about solvency levels and reporting, so you can keep a closer eye on their finances.

The other big disappointment has to be that after around 10 years providing an online lottery syndicate business, Virtual World Direct has now closed its doors, following legal action brought against it by the Department of Business Innovation and Skills alleging misleading advertising.  It would be interesting to know what the allegations were, as we had always found the scheme to work well and as advertised.  However, Virtual World Direct have taken the decision that they cannot afford to defend the legal action (maybe because their website suggests that they are now based in Panama of all places) and have therefore decided to close the scheme.

We wonder if, to some extent, this scheme has suffered from a similar fate which has made the National Lottery website close its doors to players entering from overseas - as some countries do not allow their nationals to enter foreign lotteries.

The only good news from this is that they say that they are solvent and have promised to honour all outstanding monies and lottery entries and will be sending cheques to anyone who was a member of the scheme with the balances due and refunds of monies paid in advance.

We can only say that this is a shame, and now the best way of entering the lottery is through the official National Lottery Website.


Perhaps we ought to investigate setting up a simple national lottery online ourselves - contact us if you are interested in joining this - rich AT rwapservices DOT co DOT uk
