All You Need to Know About The Lottery Office

The Lottery Office is the only 100% Aussie owned and operated company in Australia that offers a legal way to play to win from the draws of overseas lotteries. Some other online lottery companies may appear similar, but are foreign. Other lookalike sites work on betting models and rely on insurance to pay out “winners”. When you play lottery with The Lottery Office, you’ll receive a real ticket in our own government-approved lottery.

How Does it Work? 

When you purchase a ticket in a lottery conducted by The Lottery Office, we purchase a matching ticket in the corresponding overseas lottery. This guarantees we’ll be able to pay out any prize no matter how big.

We Support Australian Charities

When you purchase a ticket from The Lottery Office, a percentage of the ticket price is donated to our Charity and Community Benefits Fund. Every time you buy a ticket you’re supporting charities and community groups across Australia.  

We became a gold sponsor of the Palmerston Shopping Centre Special Children’s Christmas Party in the Northern Territory. 

This amazing charity provides children living with a disability or a life-threatening illness a chance to attend a magical Christmas celebration, something families look forward to every year. The money we donated went towards food, drinks, entertainment, activities, amusement rides, and gifts. 

The Gold Coast Health Foundation also received $10,000 from our Charity and Community Benefits Fund towards its Cancer Patient Transport Service. This wonderful service makes approximately 6500 journeys each year and takes patients to and from appointments when they are too ill to drive or simply can’t afford transportation. 

These are just a couple of charities and community organizations you can support by purchasing a lottery ticket with The Lottery Office.
