THE BASICS

When you purchase one of our lottery tickets, we will buy a matching ticket in an overseas lottery which ensures we can pay out any prize won. If the overseas ticket wins a prize, we collect it and then we pay you the same amount that we collected for your matching winning ticket, no fees, commission or Australian taxes.
