Newsletter # 1


Welcome to the first news from lottos, direct to you via u2u - it's intended that once a month a news brief will be sent to all members with reminder(s) and hints!


Members have had many wins this month (luxury holidays worth thousands etc etc.!) and this is a reminder that over 320 competitions end in a few days, on the 30th June, so enter, enter, enter - July should then produce even more winners!


Your Profile.
Did you know that you can update your member details such as your current 'mood' and also your current email address (which I request is kept up to date) via this shortcut:

Green Arrows.
Member Moody recently asked what the 'green arrows' to the right of the last person to post on a thread are:
The answer as worked out by members is that it will take you to the last post in that thread.

Free Premium.
Some members are getting Premium access to the forum for free!
Members that refer new members that become Premium members get 3 months extra Premium added free!
More info: and on the bottom of the Premium page at

Hi again!

Back again with some hints, reminders and tips!

There have been more awesome wins over the past weeks... remember to enter!

Recent announcements

Congrats to sue-c on the birth of Bethany Rose!

Congrats to Beeline on her 50th!


lottos member Tabitha recently asked if there was a way to note competitions that they wanted to easily reference again, like if they needed a barcode for it but they hadn't entered it yet and wanted to easily find the competition again.

The simple answer is Yes.
As Beeline said, the lottos forum allows you, with one click, to save any topic you want to reference. These are called Favourites and once saved, you can easily list all your favourite topics/competitions.
No need to save it in notepad, word or whatever - just one click and it's there! VERY handy!

See the topic here:

Not really an advertisement, but something that could be a bit of fun.
From time to time (not nearly often enough!) a competition may have incentives to 'push' that particular competition.
The Pantene win $1000 competition is currently the only one I'm aware of. If you enter it via the link below, 35 cents will be accumulated for lottos:

How about this: the competition ends on July 22nd, so enter now and the earnings will go towards providing a comp for Premium members only - something to the value of $100.


The forum as you know is a great community with many sharing and caring people - just a reminder that the forum does have etiquette rules in place to ensure your experience and participation here is a positive one.
These can be viewed here:

To come soon:

Member jasall asked if a new Premium report could be
made that lists ALL wol type competitions in one report for all forum areas (web, store, magazine etc.).
The answer is Yes, and this should be in place sometime next week.

Member Rewards:
Last newsletter I mentioned referring new members that become Premium members results in you gaining 3 months FREE Premium access - one member has recently achieved 9 months free Premium by referring 3 members to Premium!
Well done! More info: and on the bottom of the Premium page at

Hi !

It's been a while since a "newsletter" has been sent to members so now is the time!

*** New subscription options ***

Upon member request, there are now subscription options such as 3 monthly, 2 yearly and 3 yearly - with cost savings over the existing yearly option. Full details on the payment page:

Members who refer new members who upgrade to Premium will get the 3 months reward for all options except where the new member joins for only 3 months. If you are unaware of the referral system, more info is in the announcements forum area:

*** Premium reports and CompTracker ***

Some members aren't using Premium reports or CompTracker. Info and links for the Premium reports:
Note: there are new Premium reports added quite often, the most recent can open web based comps entry form pages automagically for you! Look for the "Web Entry Competitions with Open Sesame (open all ‘web entry pages’ competitions marked as entered, daily or unlimited entry, not store based, not purchase required in new browser tabbed windows)" report!

For info on CompTracker, read the topic in the Announcements forum area:
Note: it is planned to include Overseas comps tracked by CompTracker within the next day or two again due to member requests.
