Who is behind OnlineLottoSites.com?
Hello, my name is Alfred Ballester and I am the founder of OnlineLottoSites.com. I am a born and bred Gibraltarian who has worked in the online gambling industry for over 16 years. Online lotteries have enjoyed rapid growth in recent years, and that’s why I decided to launch my own platform to make it easier for players to find the right lottery websites to bet their money at.
Why Online Lotto Sites?
The main reason why I started this website was because of my own troubles enjoying international lotteries. Where I’m from, you can only purchase tickets for the local lottery. Many people, including me, enjoy playing the Euromillions however, and to purchase a ticket, you need to go to a local kiosk in nearby Spain. I wanted to create a place where international lottery enthusiasts and players alike could come for guidance and information and not suffer the same way I did.
At first, I simply created a Facebook page and posted on the upcoming lottery draws and their results with a direct link to Lottoland, who has their HQ in Gibraltar. People started to join my page and register at Lottoland and I started to see the demand for online lottery betting increase right before my eyes. Soon, after I started attracting the attention of lottery players from all around the world, I thought that having a website would be my next move as it will allow me to reach a wider audience and serve them in a more structured manner.
I felt the need to share my knowledge of the gaming industry and online lotteries with you. This led me to provide my readers with the TOP online lottery websites, a review on each, and inform you of any welcome offers.

Who Am I?
I was born and bred in Gibraltar, a British overseas territory located at the most southern point of Europe. Gibraltar is connected to Spain through the land with a border separating both sides.
So you are probably asking yourselves why I joined the online gaming and gambling industry?
Apart from gambling being one of Gibraltar’s largest sources of employment, my father used to run the local betting shops for over 30 years. He was the pioneer of off-shore betting in Gibraltar, he sat on the board of Sportingbet and later on helped PartyGaming (partypoker) establish itself here.
Upon returning from my studies in the UK, I worked for a local telecommunications company. After several months, I had the opportunity of joining my father at PartyGaming with the customer services team. I spent a month training in Hyderabad, India. 18 months later, I joined the marketing team and this gave me huge exposure to the world businesses operate in.
Today, I am fortunate in running my own business and doing something I am passionate about. Lotteries are fun and entertaining, and thanks to the internet, people can enjoy themselves even more from practically anywhere in the World.
