Which online lottery is right for you?

With several international lotteries to choose from, and HUGE lottery jackpots on offer, choosing the right lottery to play can be a difficult decision.

There are a few things to consider when choosing which online lottery suits you best.

Location

Do you want to play the same old traditional Australian lottery or play to win from the draws of an international lottery?

Sadly, traditional Australian lottery jackpots don’t stack up compared to lottery jackpots overseas.

Playing to win from the draws of lotteries such as US Mega Millions, US Powerball and EuroMillions, gives you a chance to win a lottery jackpot bigger than you’ve ever dreamed!

Prize money

The biggest ever jackpots throughout history have been won in the USA. A massive AUD$2.3 billion US Powerball win in January 2016, and another huge AUD$2.2 billion US Mega Millions win in October 2018.

We’ve never seen an Australian lottery jackpot reach these heights; the biggest jackpot won in Australia was an Oz Lotto jackpot of $111 million.

When you play lottery with The Lottery Office, we give you the chance to win from the draws of the biggest international lotteries in the world. There’s no need to leave home. When you purchase a ticket in one of our lotteries, we purchase a matching ticket in the corresponding lottery overseas. If you win, we pay you the exact same amount. No fees or commissions.

Draw frequency

How often do you want to play lottery? Are you happy playing one draw a week or do you want to increase your chances?

If you’d like to play lottery at least 2 or 3 times per week you’re in luck, with many of our online lotteries drawn 2 or 3 times a week!

When deciding which online lottery suits you best, it’s important to consider the rules of play. The rules of each lottery vary, depending on how many balls are drawn, if there’s a bonus ball and other features that ramp up the excitement!

When you play to win from the draws of EuroMillions, watch out for the SUPERDRAWS!

These are randomly held throughout the year and send the jackpots sky high!

Playing to win from the draws of Spain’s La Primitiva gets fun with The Joker.

Select yes to The Joker option and a 7 digit number will be randomly assigned to your ticket to be used in a raffle with seven fixed prize categories.

The price

There’s an online lottery to fit everyone’s budget. You can purchase a ticket in one of our lotteries for less than it costs to buy a cup of coffee!
