Genius Ways to Announce your Lottery Win to your Family

Just imagine getting the news: “Congratulations! You’ve won the lottery!” A win like this is probably one of the most exciting and unforgettable days of your life. And the only feeling better than holding that winning ticket is getting to share the news with your loved ones.

Luckily, Australian and New Zealand lottery winners don’t have to go public with their jackpot win, allowing them to avoid being in the spotlight, away from the public eye. However, most people will inform their family and close friends of the exciting news. The question is… how?

You could make it as simple as telling them straight out, but honestly, where’s the fun in that?! Especially now that you have a little extra cash at your disposal, this could be a chance for you to delight your family with a huge surprise to tell them your fantastic news and make them feel involved in the process.

So, keep reading for genius ways to announce your lottery win to your family.


Yes, you could choose to have your family over at your house for a traditional meal, or… You could go extravagant and book a table or an entire space at your favourite restaurant or venue. Keep them guessing by not giving too much away or disguising it as another event like a birthday, or a family get-together.


Sure, you could text your family the news but ask yourself this question, “What would a billionaire do?”

Being generous with your newfound fortune is a perk that comes along with a wealthy lifestyle. Spoiling the people in your life and saying ‘thank-you’ with a gift will not only have your family members in a state of shock and gratitude, but you will feel amazing being the one responsible for bringing such joy into their lives. And that is priceless. So what will it be? A new car? The hottest new Apple product? Now that you’re an overseas lottery winner, the options are endless.

You’ve seen the skywriting, right? Or perhaps a message flag trailing a helicopter? Usually, it says something like ‘Will you marry me’ or has news of an upcoming event. Imagine this: It’s a typical day. Maybe Sunday dinner with the family, and you direct their attention out the window to the words ‘I’m Rich!’ written in the sky. You have to admit that it would be a pretty memorable experience.


Announce your big win by funding a holiday for the entire family! You could post airplane tickets with accommodation information to everyone invited with a little “P.S. I just won from an overseas lottery draw.”

Why should I play with The Lottery Office?

We believe we can offer you a more innovative and safer way to play the lottery online. The Lottery Office is unlike other companies. Our unique business model allows you to enter our Government approved lotteries. When you enter one of our lotteries, we will purchase a matching ticket in a relevant major overseas lottery in that country, and we will claim any prize that is won from the overseas ticket locally and pay you the same amount. Doing this ensures we can pay out any prize and not rely on an insurance policy like some other companies. It also means you don’t have to worry about some overseas lotteries that have rules against paying foreign winners who bought their tickets over the internet from a messenger service. It allows our players to have the chance to win from matched tickets with major overseas lotteries with prizes that can reach into the billions.
