Which Matched Overseas Lottery Is The Easiest To Win?

When it comes to the Lottery Office’s matched overseas lotteries, the height of your entertainment isn’t measured by selecting numbers or reading how to play each lottery. No, it’s obviously the excitement of seeing your numbers drawn and knowing you are in with a chance to become a millionaire instantly. So with that in mind, which overseas lottery is the easiest to win?

Firstly, let’s clarify that all lotteries are a game of chance. And while it’s fantastic to be able to spend a couple of dollars and win hundreds of millions, the odds aren’t in your favour. Not everyone can win, if they did, there wouldn’t be enough money to go around. This is where our lotteries differ from each other – some have better chances of winning that are than others, meaning you could have a better chance of winning big depending on the lotteries you choose to play.

So which one of our lotteries should you choose if you’re looking for the easiest one to win from?


Of the matched overseas lotteries that players at The Lottery Office can play to win from, the Irish National Lottery’s Lotto gives players the best chances of winning the jackpot prize.

Spain’s La Primitiva is the best option if you want to win any prize, as it gives a one in 8 chance of getting a return on your ticket cost. In the world of lottery, this represents a higher than normal change of winning a prize.

Of course, there’s no guarantee that you’ll win, even if you choose a lottery with better opportunities for winning. In any case, to have a fighting chance you need to have a ticket in a draw! People win lotteries all the time, and they all have one thing in common; they took a chance and played!

Another frequently asked question is:


There’s no easy answer to this one, unfortunately. Buying more tickets will obviously increase your chances, but it will also cost you more money.

Some people believe that picking numbers recently drawn is a good strategy, as they’re ‘due’ to come up again. Others say avoiding numbers drawn often is a better idea, as they’re less likely to be drawn again.

There’s no evidence to suggest that either of these strategies works, so it ultimately comes down to personal preference, and as we mentioned earlier, it’s a game of chance.

Statistically speaking, numbers chosen at random have exactly the same chances of winning a prize as numbers that were chosen using a different method, so in the end, it doesn’t really matter how you get your numbers.

One tip we can offer is to read each of The Lottery Office’s matched overseas lottery game rules carefully. Some lotteries offer features that may give you additional opportunities to win. For example, the multiplier feature available in our USA Power Lotto can multiply non-jackpot prizes by 2, 3, 4, 5, or 10 times!

Lottery Syndicates are a great way for players to increase their chances of winning a prize. Players can buy shares in a syndicate and pool their financial resources with other players in the syndicate. This allows more games to be purchased and shared amongst the syndicate members, than could be purchased by the individual syndicate members. With the power to purchase more games, the changes of winning are greatly increased for syndicate members.
