Participating Newsagents Help Aussies Play International Lotteries, Here’s How

International lotteries are more accessible than ever for Australians thanks to The Lottery Office’s new ‘Pay In-Store’ payment option.

The Pay In-Store option was created thanks to a partnership between The Lottery Office and the payment platform blueshyft. The collaboration means that Australians can now pay for their international lottery tickets in cash by adding funds to their accounts in-store without needing to supply their financial information online.

Pay In-Store is a convenient way to deposit funds into your Lottery Office account by paying over the counter at any of the 1400 participating news agencies Australia-wide. Players simply generate a QR code from their Lottery Office account and present this QR code to a Pay In-Store outlet attendant with payment for an instant (that’s right, instant!) deposit to their Lottery Office account.

Each time a player wishes to add funds to their Lottery Office account, they just need to generate a QR code and take it to a participating newsagency. The good news is that the process is quick and easy and can be done anywhere with an internet connection.

The Lottery Office CEO Jaclyn Wood explains, “This will give The Lottery Office’s existing customers additional flexibility to make payments, but also open up a new channel for us to engage with new players.”

Newsagents can also benefit from the new service with the potential to generate additional foot traffic into their stores and incentives to sign up new players. Ms Wood explains, “For any deposit made in-store, the newsagent will receive a percentage or dollar amount, whichever is greater.” Furthermore, “For every qualified new customer that comes to us via the newsagency, the newsagent receives an attractive referral payment.”

The Lottery Office is an Australian-owned and operated business committed to providing Australians with a safe and easy way to play international lotteries. The Pay In-Store option is yet another step in making international lottery play more accessible for all Australians.

When it comes to overseas lotto, Australian and New Zealanders can be hesitant to step into the unknown. However, little do they realise the advantages of the international lottery opportunities hosted by The Lottery Office. From bigger jackpots, easy-to-understand games, and a range of unique features that aren’t available in traditional Australian lotteries – there’s a whole world of fun and fortune to explore!
