Florida Lotto Magic Review
Lotto Magic is different from any other syndicate we have come across. They play the Florida Lotto, and Powerball, in an exclusive Members Club. But there's more to it than that.
This Lottery Club is also about giving their Members benefits and discounts, worth more than the cost of their membership!
It is open to players all over the world, but players in the USA will get the best from the discounts and benefits side.
Playing The Lottery
The lottery side of the club plays the Florida Lotto 6 from 49 game (every Wednesday and Saturday). You can also now play the Powerball too.
Groups are made up of 8 members all funding one ticket each. This is a little smaller than we would like, although it is still eight times the chance of winning of course.
Everything works on a monthly cycle, so depending on how many days in a month you get to play in 8 or 9 lottery draws a month. And therefore share in the winnings from a total of 64 or 72 Florida Lotto tickets.
Winnings statements and payments are reliably mailed out to you monthly.
I should just mention that Lotto Magic has actually been quietly running for SIXTEEN YEARS now, and is officially the oldest lottery club that we are aware of!
Benefits And Discounts
Here's the unusual bit. There are two sides to this. First you get membership to a discount shopping club which saves you money on everything from movies to sports tickets. Second you get a voucher for a 2 nights free hotel break.
The true value of this depends on how much you actually use it, but there is certainly a lot of stuff available. And fortunately it is stuff you will already be buying, so there is a good potential to save money. We did a 'not very scientific' calculation and reckon you could likely save in the region of $500 per year. Apparently some members do save even more than that. Here's some of the savings offered:-
- Save up to 41% on AMC Movie Tickets
- Save $20-$30+ on Sports or Theatre tickets
- Blockbuster rentals at $3.20 (normally up to $5.24!)
- Save 10% at Circuit City
- $25 off $125+ at Kmart
Free Hotel Break
You get a voucher which can be used for a 2 night/3 day break in any of 90 desirable resorts in North America. These are at good hotels like Ramada, Holiday Inn and Marriotts. There is a 'small print' charge of $29 when you use it to cover admin costs - but still a very good saving overall. They also give you 5 more when you use that one! You are also allowed to give to family and friends, which is pretty cool.
What Does It Cost
& What Do We Think?
It's harder to judge Lotto Magic than normal. Because obviously you have to take into account all the benefits the club offers.
If you won't use the discounts then you still get a decent lottery syndicate (of which there are very few in the USA!), but just pretty average value for money.
BUT, if you live in the USA and will therefore make use of the discount club and the hotel breaks, then at just $25 per month it really does sound like a bargain.
How To Join
The club is online, so you can join online and be up and running today.
Note: make sure you pick the Team Player option on the application form (or Power Player if you want to play Powerball). This gets you the lottery pooling, and the other benefits (the Team Captain option is for people who want to promote the club to friends, and it costs twice as much).
