How Australians & New Zealanders are Winning from Overseas Lottery Draws at The Lottery Office

Did you know that you can join in the fun and excitement of international lotteries from anywhere in Australia and New Zealand through The Lottery Office’s unique system of matched lotteries?

That’s right; you don’t have to fly to Ireland to benefit from the draws of Irish National Lottery or take a cruise to America to play the USA Powerball. Instead, you can play our matched international lottery from the comfort of your living room. All you need is an internet connection!

International lotteries are very easy to navigate, so it’s no wonder more Australians and New Zealanders are jumping online to play our lotteries which are matched to those big international jackpots. It’s just like playing the lottery at your local shop, except you choose your numbers online. Then you simply pay for your ticket, and you’re in with a chance to win big.

Playing online also means you can play to win from the draws of some of the biggest international lotteries in the world. It opens up the doors to the draws of lotteries from the USA and across Europe.

When you play in one of our lotteries, we purchase a matching ticket in the corresponding international lottery. In the event of a win, we collect from the overseas lottery ticket and then we pay you the exact same amount that was collected. We do not charge any fees or commissions on prizes.

You can play to win from the draws of the following lotteries:

  • USA Mega Lotto (matching tickets purchased in US Mega Millions)
  • USA Power Lotto (matching tickets purchased in US Powerball)
  • European Millions (matching tickets purchased in Europe’s EuroMillions)
  • UK Lotto (matching tickets purchased in UK National Lottery)
  • Irish Lotto (matching tickets purchased in Irish National Lottery’s ‘Lotto’)
  • Italian Super Jackpot (matching tickets purchased in Italy’s SuperEnalotto)
  • European Jackpot (matching tickets purchased in Europe’s Eurojackpot)
  • La Primitiva (matching tickets purchased in Spain’s ‘La Primitiva’)


Playing is fun and easy with The Lottery Office matched lottery tickets. Select the matched lottery you’d like to play and then purchase safely in the knowledge that you’ll be paid the same amount as the the matching overseas ticket if you win!

When you place an order with us, you purchase games in our Government approved lotteries. After receiving your order, we buy a matching ticket in the overseas lottery. Once we have safely secured the matching ticket, we issue you a Lottery Office ticket, which can be found under ‘My Draws’ in your Lottery Office account.

International lottery jackpots are huge.

Sure, there are some big lottery jackpots in traditional Australian and New Zealand lotteries, but there’s really no comparison with international lottery jackpots.

The biggest ever USA Mega Millions jackpot was a mind-blowing AUD$2.1 billion! EuroMillions is also a big payer, with the biggest jackpot winner walking away with AUD$350 million. With prize money like this on offer from our matching lottery tickets, why wouldn’t you want a chance to win!

You could win more

If you play our USA Power Lotto or USA Mega Lotto and choose your own numbers, you can select the ‘Multiplier’ option and win more. It works slightly differently for each of these two lotteries, but the Multiplier option gives you the chance to win up to 10 times more for non-jackpot prizes!

EuroMillions Superdraws are held randomly throughout the year and give you more chances to win. A Superdraw works like a regular draw, but the jackpots are even bigger. We never know when a Superdraw is coming, but you can be sure we will let you know when it’s here.

You can remain anonymous if you win.

We want you to enjoy your international lottery win in privacy, so there’s no need to announce the win to the world. If you win the lottery with the Lottery Office, you have the right to remain anonymous.

The Lottery Office supports charity.

We don’t only pay money to lottery winners at the Lottery Office; we love depositing a percentage of our purchase cost to charities. A percentage of every ticket sold is donated to the Lottery Office Charity Fund then donated to charities and community groups in the states where we have players. So buying a ticket from the Lottery Office is a win for charity, and hopefully, you’ll have a win too!
