Online competitions website lottos.com.au reached milestone of 96,000 members, with member winnings in excess of $6 million in 2010, cementing position as number one competitions website in Australia.

(Sydney, Australia) March 4, 2011 -- Online competitions website, www.lottos.com.au today announced reaching over 95,000 members and prize winnings of over $6 million in 2010, cementing it's position as the number one competitions website in Australia.

Launched in early 2000, lottos.com.au founder Andrew Lindner has seen seen the growth and transition of competitions into the Internet space, commenting, "When lottos launched, most competition entries were paper entry forms, however the vast majority of competitions are now entered online."

lottos.com.au provides details of over 1600 competitions with a total prize pool running in the millions of dollars. According to Lindner, "Competitions are massively popular in Australia and we list all the ones that we're aware of. An individual may find perhaps five by themselves, but as a community we find thousands each year."

"Unlike other competitions sites in Australia, our income stream is not derived from promoting a small number of competitions. Being subscription based, we retain independence, so our editorial focus is to not push campaigns from promoters ahead of other competitions. The $6 million in competition prize winnings by our members proves it's a successful model for our members."

Lindner added; "We have the expertise. Our members are made up of professional compers, who enter competitions full time, through to first time compers, with whom the seasoned members are only too willing to share tips. My background is in competitions, both as an entrant and with over ten years of running the website. We're innovative, providing the first competition tagging system for members and over 130 options on the way competitions are listed or sorted."

www.lottos.com.au has been featured numerous times on national current affairs programs through Channel Nine's "A Current Affair" and Channel Seven's "Today Tonight", other TV shows, as well as in magazines and in the book, "How to Win Competitions" by Sherry Sjolander.

In terms of 2011, Lindner is very optimistic. "Our first national meeting in Hobart was well attended by members. This year we're excited about meeting in Sydney. Members are off to great start in 2011 with seven cars already won, along with numerous overseas holidays and other prizes. It's still a thrill when I hear of our members wins, whether it's a movie ticket or a car."
