Play international

When you play lottery the traditional way, you can only play in the traditional Australian lotteries. Playing online means you can play to win from the draws of some of the biggest international lotteries in the world. It opens up the doors to lotteries from the USA and across Europe.

When you play in one of our lotteries, we purchase a matching ticket in the corresponding international lottery. If you win, we pay you the exact same amount we collect from the overseas lottery.

You can play to win from the draws of the following lotteries:

Play for a chance to win bigger jackpots

Lottery jackpots overseas are often much bigger than the ones here in Australia.

The biggest jackpot in US history was collected in 2016, when a lucky few players won a mind-blowing AUD$2.3 billion as a result of a US Powerball jackpot.

In Europe, one EuroMillions player won AUD$295 million, becoming the UK’s biggest jackpot winner in history.

Both US Powerball and US Mega Millions have a minimum jackpot prize of AUD$50 million, not a bad starting point!

When you buy a ticket in one of our licensed lotteries, we purchase a matching ticket in the corresponding international lottery. If you win, we pay you the exact same amount we collect.

It costs as little as a cup of coffee to play lottery online

You’ll be surprised how affordable it is to play lottery online! For about the same price as a coffee, or for AUD$3.70, you can play in our La Primitiva lottery, with a chance to win from the draws of Spain’s La Primitiva. Or for as little as AUD$7, you can grab a ticket in our USA Power Lotto, with a matched ticket in the famous US Powerball lottery.

If you win, we don’t charge a fee or commission, we pay you the exact same amount we collect from the overseas lottery.
