How Australians Can Enter Million Dollar International Lottery Draws

Lottery jackpots are a dream for many people. The chance to win millions of dollars with just a few lucky numbers is enough to make anyone’s heart race. However, did you know that Australians can enter million-dollar international lottery draws and have a chance at winning some of the world’s biggest jackpots?

So, without further ado, let’s understand how Australians can enter international lottery draws and what you need to know to give yourself the best chance at winning.


The main difference between traditional Australian and international lotteries is the potential rewards. The biggest lottery jackpots worldwide can dwarf the ones in traditional Australian lotteries, often reaching hundreds of millions or more. Powerball USA and Mega Millions, for example, starts at a minimum of $20 million (USD). However, both can easily reach far higher amounts than that!

International lotteries are held and drawn overseas, so Australians can’t walk into a participating newsagent as they usually do for traditional Australian lotteries. Because of this, many Australian and New Zealand residents are under the impression that access to some of the biggest lotteries in the world isn’t possible, which is not the case at all.

With The Lottery Office, Australians and New Zealanders can participate in international lotteries without leaving the comfort of their home. You can purchase tickets for the biggest and most famous lottery draws online with The Lottery Office. All you need is an internet connection and a few minutes of your time to buy tickets securely, quickly, and easily.

Sounds like a ‘lott-ery’ of fun, right?! It is.

But, first, it’s essential to…


While lotteries generally have the same core concept, the rules and regulations can differ from one draw to another.

For instance, players in US Powerball can choose numbers main between 1 and 69, while players in Australian Powerball can only choose main numbers between 1 and 35. Ensuring you know the rules for each game can give you an advantage over someone who doesn’t know the rules.

International lotteries are known for their special features—for example the ‘Multiplier’ feature in USA Power Lotto or USA Mega Lotto. The multiplier feature allows players to multiply their non-jackpot wins by up to 10 times, making 2nd and even 3rd division prizes ASTRONOMICAL! Imagine the feeling of turning an AUD$14,000 win into AUD$70,000, or AUD$70,000 into AUD$700,000!

In summary, read the game rules carefully because you don’t have to win a first-division prize in an international lottery to become a millionaire.
