Lottoland has grown to become the worlds leading online lotto betting provider

Rapidly gaining popularity in Asia, Lottoland announced their first Jackpot winner, UK-based Shaji Matthew, originally from Kerala, India, who walked away with a massive Rs 3.3 crore.

“When I first saw the email and received the call from Lottoland, I thought it was a prank. It was only after the process started that it started to sink in,” said Shaji in an interview. Still struggling to comprehend the vast fortune of his win he added, “When I first saw the amount, I thought it was Rs 33 lakhs. It wasn’t until later when I was told it’s an eight-digit figure and 3.3 crores!”

Shaji spun his way to the jackpot on the Atlantis Casino game – a simple underwater theme online slot game. When asked what he plans to do with his winnings, Shaji said “I was in shock, it’s a life-changing amount of money for me and my family. For now, I’ve invested the money into a joint account with my wife and I’ll save some for my children’s college fund. We also plan to finish building our new house and move in next year.”

To hear someone will be so selfless with their money is fantastic and we couldn’t be happier that Shaji was our jackpot winner.”

Shaji has now completed the quick and easy verification process with Lottoland and has had the money deposited in his bank account.
