My faith in LottoSmile was definitely confirmed

What brought you to LottoSmile?

- Following my big win, my faith in LottoSmile as a very professional and reputable company was definitely confirmed. I won a big sum and the process of transferring the funds went very smoothly.

What are your favourite lotteries and why?
- I always play lotteries in countries where I imagine myself picking up the prizes. In other words, I only play lotteries in countries I would like to visit.

What is your strategy?
- I always check my luck before playing. I go by my gut feeling and have a few tricks to test my luck. I choose whether to play on a particular day depending on how lucky I am feeling. I have a bit of a psychic in me. I only play when I feel like I am being helped by somebody out of this world.

Have you won anything before?
- I used to bet on horses in Venezuela and once won a car. However, the biggest win of my life was through LottoSmile.

Do you have any final tips for online lottery players?
