The odds for our lotteries have an upper limit, so you always know what the maximum odds will be.
       

      1. Do you like winning fast money?

        With our Anderson Gamble, for example, you can win over € 70,000 with maximum odds of 1:9,999, with a wager of only € 15.

        The big brother of this gamble is the Anderson Gamble XL, with wager of € 150. In this lottery, you can win over € 290,000 with amazingly short odds of 1 to 5,000, and we run these lotteries regularly!

    3. HOW DO I PARTICIPATE IN A GAMBLE?

      Step 1:

      Once you have paid sufficient funds into your wallet, you can start playing the lottery whenever you are ready.

      If you have already chosen a gamble (if not, see above) you can start playing, by clicking on the "to the lottery" button of the relevant gamble in the "Gambles" area.

      Once you have been redirected, you will see the lobby of the gamble on the screen:

      On the right-hand side (as viewed on the PC) you will see some of the current players.

      On the left-hand side you will see the current jackpot, the remaining time until the winner is drawn and the "Play" button. Before the minimum number of tickets/participants is reached (please see also point 3.2), you can see the minimum jackpot.

      Below the two areas mentioned, you will see various data about this gamble:

      You can see whether the minimum number of players or participations has been reached. If these have not been reached, you can still take part in the gamble! If it is the case that a gamble does not go ahead by the time of conclusion, then the money will be automatically transferred back to your wallet.

      In another field, you will also see the minimum wager for this gamble and the prize to be won.

      This will change every time another person participates in the gamble.

      To the far right, there is another timer, showing the time remaining.

      Depending on the chosen Gamble, they maximum number of available tickets per player will be limited to 1 - 10% of the total available tickets to guarantee a realistic winning chance to every player.

      Step 2:

      Click on the "Play" button mentioned above.

      Now a further window should open on your screen, where the minimum or current jackpot and the remaining time will be shown once again.

      On the right, you will find the name of the gamble and a short description of the gamble so that you can be sure that you are really in the right lottery.

      Step 3:

      You can now determine the amount which you want to wager by selecting the number of tickets you want to buy. The price per ticket will be shown right next to this.

      Step 4:

      You can now activate your participation in the gamble by clicking on the "Play now" button.

      Before doing this, you must firstly confirm that you have read and accepted the General Terms & Conditions (if applicable) and the Terms of Service.

      Once you have agreed to take part in a gamble, you cannot cancel your participation!
       
    4. DURING THE GAMBLE AND AFTERWARDS
       

      1. Whilst the clock is ticking, players still have the chance to place further wagers. This means that the odds are constantly changing. The gambles in the Secret Lottery are the only ones in the world which have a limit on the length of the odds of winning. This ensures that your chances of winning are not too low.
      2. When the time is up, a winner is drawn. A winner will only be drawn when the minimum number of participants has been reached. If this number has not been reached, the sums of money invested by the players will be refunded to them. A maximum number of participants is only required for our Millionaire's Gamble; for all other gambles, a winner will be drawn when the time is up, regardless of whether a maximum number of participants has been reached.

        If you have won, the winnings will be credited to your wallet. From this point in time onwards, you can transfer the money into your bank account.
         

  5. Privacy Policy
