How to play the lottery online. Anywhere, anytime

People often don’t realise how effortless playing the lottery online actually is.

Imagine not having to get up, get dressed and make your way out of the house to play in your weekly lotteries. It’s mind-blowing to us that people are still playing the lottery this way. Especially when online platforms such as The Lottery Office make it so easy to play from the comfort of your home, wrapped up in bed and still in your PJs at 11 am with zero judgment from the outside world.

The Lottery Office literally gives you online access to play to win from some of the biggest international lotteries in the world anywhere, anytime. Here’s how:

Sign up for an account by following the below steps:

Step one: Click on the “sign up” icon at the top of our home page. You can sign up quickly using your Gmail, Facebook, Apple account or email address. You’ll be asked to input a few details and agree to our terms and conditions.

Step two: Now you’re ready to play! Visit our website and select the lottery and numbers you’d like to play. You can decide to choose a quick play, and the numbers will be selected for you randomly, or you can choose them yourself.

Step three: Complete the transaction and pay securely. You can pay using a debit or credit card, Bpay, POLi Pay, Pay ID or Paysafecard. For your safety, our website is secured by 256-bit encryption technology.

Note: To sign up for an account with The Lottery Office, you must be over 18 years and be a resident of either Australia or New Zealand.

This sign up process takes under two minutes, and we want to emphasize again that you do not have to be in public to start playing the lottery! Do so from home, on your lunch break, or during your morning cardio! Imagine getting the call up to let you know you’ve hit the jackpot from the draw of an international lottery with a ticket you purchased while you were on the toilet! What a story for the grandkids that would make!

Next, choose which international lottery draw you’d like to play to win from…

The Lottery Office offers online tickets for our Government licensed lotteries, such as the USA Power Lotto, European Millions, Irish Lotto and many more. When you buy a ticket in these lotteries, we buy matching tickets in equivalent international lottery draws. This lets our players play to win from lotteries like the Powerball lottery in the US, EuroMillions in Europe, and the Irish National Lotto.

How does it work?

When you place an order with The Lottery Office, you purchase games in our own Government approved lotteries, e.g., USA Mega Lotto. After receiving your order, we then purchase a matching ticket in the overseas lottery, e.g., US Mega Millions. In the event of a win, the entire prize money is collected from the lottery overseas, allowing us to pay you the exact value of your matched ticket. Once we have safely secured the matching ticket, we issue you with a Lottery Office ticket. These tickets can be viewed in the My Draws section under ‘My Account’ in the main menu.

Does The Lottery Office have an app?

App-solutely! (See what we did there?)

The FREE Lottery Office App has everything you need to give yourself the best possible chance of hitting the jackpot. You can play all your favourite lotteries on the go with our new and improved app, which is available to download for both Apple and Android devices.

You can read all of the information on the app in our previous blog post:

So to briefly summarise, simply sign up for an account, purchase your ticket and leave the rest to us! And let’s all be honest… It’s winter in Australia right now. So, who wants to be leaving the house when there’s a much easier solution at our fingertips.

We hope this has inspired you to play the lottery online with us and given some clarity on how easy it actually is. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact our friendly customer service team, who are more than happy to help.
