Our customer accounts are opened upon the customer making their first deposit (for lottery purchases) under the account number allocated to them. Although lotteries are generally exempt from the requirements of the Act in the spirit of cooperation with authorities we also attempt to verify your identity within 14 days.

Who is The Lottery Office?

The Lottery Office is operated by Global Players Network Pty Ltd. We are Australian owned and operated and licensed by the Northern Territory Government. We have offices in Darwin, NT and on the Gold Coast, QLD.

The Lottery Office is unlike other companies. Our unique business model allows you to enter our own Government approved lotteries. When you enter one of our lotteries, we will then purchase a matching ticket in a major overseas lottery and we will claim any prize that is won from the overseas ticket and pay you the exact same amount. This ensures we are able to pay out any prize and not have to reply on an insurance policy like other companies. It also allows our players to have the chance to win from matched tickets with major overseas lotteries having prizes reaching into the billions.

Is The Lottery Office legal?

Yes. The Lottery Office is operated by Global Players Network Pty Ltd, and licensed and regulated by the Northern Territory Government of Australia. All of our lotteries are approved, conducted and drawn in the Northern Territory under the supervision of Licensing NT. Our processes and financials are audited annually as required by our Regulator.

Is this lottery betting?

Definitely not. Lottery betting companies operate under a Sports Betting licence and are not approved to run their own lotteries. Most lottery betting companies are headquartered overseas and rely on an insurance policy to pay out large prizes in the case that they have a major winner. They don't purchase matching tickets in the overseas lotteries. In June 2018 the Australian Federal Government passed legislation to ban Lottery Betting under the Interactive Gaming Act. The Lottery Office is a safe, licensed, reliable way for you to win from some of the biggest lotteries in the world. We are proudly Australian owned and operated and our profits stay right here in Australia.
