The World Lottery Club website enables UK residents to take part in various lotteries around the club. Some of these lotteries include Australian and American Powerball, Irish lotteries, lotteries from Spain, Poland. and also Europe's own Euromillions. I just happened to stumble across their website when going to sign into the national lottery to play my own ticket. They were offering two lines for £2 instead of two lines for £5. Now I'm not stupid and I pretty much worked out straightaway that this was not going an ongoing off, more an enticement to get you onto their website and get hold of your payment details. Anyway, I joined up and opted to play 2 lines on Euromillions, basically because the jackpot was reaching an excess of £100 million that week. Normally, I play one line on Euro millions every week. I think it's something like 1 in 140 million chance of winning the Euromillions so there's no way I'm going to chuck loads of money into it each week.

I just checked my bank statement online and found out that I was entered into the last three or four draws. I'm 99% sure that I didn't agree to take part in future draws, however, I can't be absolutely 100% sure so I'm not going to make a fuss about it. I've gone back into my account and made sure that I am unsubscribed from any future drawers.

I also spent nearly half an hour trying to find the section where I can literally delete my account. I couldn't find anywhere on the website, even in the FAQ questions that gave you details on terminating your account completely. If the information on removing yourself completely from their database is on their website then it's been hidden very carefully.

The point I'm trying to make is before you join up with one of these online gambling websites that offer you reduced prices or even free plays is you don't get anything for nothing, somehow, someway they are going to trick you into joining up with them and then make it hard for you to leave.

I think in future I will stick to playing the National Lottery using my online account. It's very easy to buy new tickets for one or more draws. If you want you can sign up for continuous draws using direct debit. The National Lottery's website is pretty transparent and if you want to terminate your account then it's a straightforward process.
