If you’re going to purchase a lottery ticket, you want to make sure you’re getting the biggest jackpot available. You can be strategic with your choice by playing to win from  a matched overseas lottery online that often has a jackpot far larger than the average traditional Australian lottery, and many even have very similar odds.

Check out this article on why our online lottery is the way of the future, with Australians flocking to the challenge of getting that huge jackpot win.


What could be worse than seeing your numbers flash up on the screen only to realise you can’t find your ticket. It’s fallen out of your pocket and blown away with the wind. Or it goes through the wash and is now an indecipherable mess of wet slush. Buying your lottery ticket online ensures you have a digital copy that is at your fingertips when you need it!


Depending on your choices, a ticket in our lottery often costs less than your daily cup of coffee, and the benefits could be so much more significant than just a caffeine jolt in the morning. You could quickly turn a few dollars into millions of dollars with just the click of a button. A small risk could mean a huge reward, and it’s a small price to pay for the chance to set yourself up for life.


Many of the best and biggest lotteries are overseas and offer an even greater chance to maximise your potential winnings. These are readily accessible online through our own matched lotteries and give you the leisure of choosing the biggest or best to suit you. In addition, you can choose to play to win from draws of some of the most popular lotteries globally, including USA, UK and European jackpots.
