All You Need to Know About The Lottery Office

The Lottery Office is the only company in Australia that offers a legal way to benefit from the draws of overseas lottery. Other online lottery look-a-likes work on betting models and rely on insurance to pay out “winners”, but 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.

Lottery Office winners

Lucky miner wins nearly AUD$50,000

In July 2019, one lucky player won 3rd division in our matching USA Power Lotto. A WA miner won AUD$45,612.30 as a result of the 31st July US Powerball draw. 

He couldn’t believe his luck, saying

“I’ve only just started playing with you guys. I still can’t believe that I won so fast”. 

When you buy a ticket in our USA Power Lotto draw, we buy a matching ticket in a US Powerball draw in America. We pay you the exact same prize money we collect. 

Sydney woman 1 number away from winning AUD$500,000,000

In May 2020, a Lottery Office player was only 1 number away from winning a record-breaking 1st division prize of half a billion dollars, in our USA Mega Lotto. The number drawn was 51 and she had 50!

Even though she was so close to winning a huge lottery jackpot, the Concord West resident was excited about her 3rd division win in our matching lottery of AUD$9,200.

 “Winning $9,200 from spending $23.50 is nothing to sneeze at”, she said.

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’ve recently become a gold sponsor of the Palmerston Shopping Centre Special Children’s Christmas Party in the Northern Territory. 

Kids playing

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.
