Where to Buy Tickets to Win from American lottery in Australia

Why do Australians dream of winning an American lottery jackpot?

Because let’s face it, American lottery jackpots are huge compared to Australian lottery jackpots, with winners walking away with millions, sometimes billions of dollars!

The US Mega Millions lottery reached a record jackpot of AUD$2.2 billion, never seen here in Australia. Both US lotteries, US Powerball, and US Mega Millions have starting jackpots of AUD$50 million. 

Where can Australians buy tickets to win from American lottery?

If you live outside America it is against the rules to buy a ticket and collect prizes directly, however, Australians are still able to play to win from the draws of America’s biggest lotteries. When you buy a ticket in The Lottery Office’s USA Power Lotto or USA Mega Lotto, we buy a matching ticket in the corresponding draw in America. The ticket stays in the USA and we collect the prize locally and pay the exact same amount of prize money to your account.
