“How Can I Play Powerball Tonight?” and Other Questions from Players
Our Customer Support team get all sorts of questions from our wonderful customers and people who are just curious to know what we’re about and how we work. From “How can I play Powerball tonight” to “Are you really Australian-owned” we’ve collected some of the most common questions we get from people just like you.
How can I play Powerball tonight?
As US Powerball is one of the biggest lotteries in the world, we understand why so many people are keen to play it.
To play to win from the draws of US Powerball players can buy tickets into our own government-licensed USA Power Lotto. We then buy matched tickets in a US Powerball draw overseas, and we guarantee they will have the same lottery numbers you selected. After the Powerball draw, we collect any prizes from the tickets we bought. We then pay you the same amount that we collected.
There are 3 draws each week, on Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday (AEST).
It’s also a common misconception that you can “play Powerball tonight”, as the draws take place during the day in Australian time!
Are you really Australian?
Yes, The Lottery office is 100% Australian!
We’re privately Australian owned and we’re based in Darwin and on the Gold Coast. Our Customer Support team are all in Australia so you can be sure that when you speak with us you’ll get the local touch! Reach out to our Support team today.
We also support Australian charities with a percentage of all ticket sales donated to our charity fund.

How can I play these huge lotteries I hear about in the news?
To play with The Lottery Office there are only a few basic requirements:
- Be a resident of Australia or New Zealand
- Be over 18 years of age
If you tick both of these boxes there’s no reason why you can’t be playing for hundreds of millions in a few short minutes.
So if you’re old enough and live in Australia or New Zealand, stop eyeing off the jackpot for Powerball tonight and consider grabbing some tickets in the USA Power Lotto or one of our other exclusive lotteries.
How to check lotto tickets on your phone?
There are a few ways to check lotto tickets on your phone.
You could download the free Lottery Office app, log in and check the My Draws screen, which makes it very clear which tickets have won a prize and which ones haven’t.
Alternatively, you can use your phone to log in to your My Draws on our website, which will show you all your tickets. It will also highlight any winning tickets you have:
If you decide you’d like to try and play to win from Powerball tonight with our matching USA Power Lotto or any of our other lotteries, you really don’t need to check your tickets at all. This is because we email all our players the results of each draw, including if they have any winning tickets or not. We understand that some players still like to check for themselves, but it’s good to know that you won’t miss out on any prizes if you’re not the type to check your tickets after each draw.
For winnings less than $10,000, we automatically put them in your Lottery Office account shortly after the draw has taken place.
For winnings of $10,000 and higher, we’ll contact you. We’ll discuss with you the best method for transferring your funds and get them to you asap.
And there you have it, our first blog listing some of the most popular questions we receive from our players.
Stay tuned, we’ll be doing more in future.
