Lottoland braces for Down Under Deluge as US Powerball Jackpot hits over half a Billion

Australians who dare to dream are ready to erupt and chase a bulging US Powerball jackpot this weekend.

This Sunday at 1pm (AEST), the famous US Powerball jackpot is up for grabs at $556 million, and Aussie-based Lottoland is gearing up for a mega surge over the next 48 hours. Incredibly, if it doesn’t hit this time, it will jackpot to an estimated $650 million for next Thursday’s draw!

In fact, the floodgates have already opened with Lottoland signing up around 2,000 new customers a day, all with Jackpot joy rushing through their veins.

Managing Director of Luke Brill said while many Australians are still absorbing, even scratching their heads over the recent Federal budget, the US Powerball phenomenon down under was set for another giant blast.

„We have not seen this much interest since a US Powerball playing revolution swept across Australia in January leading to more than 250,000 new customers signing up with Lottoland in the 48 hours before the world’s biggest ever jackpot lottery of $2.3 billion was drawn in the US,“ Mr Brill said.

„More and more Aussies now know you can bet on the world’s biggest and best lotteries every day through Lottoland, and Powerball has become the core player for great Australian dreams.“

The US Powerball has two draws per week – Thursday at 1pm (AEST) and 72 hours later on Sunday.

„Just open an account at even through your mobile or tablet, and just maybe the lucky country might get a whole lot luckier!“

The online lottery world – for so long out of reach for Aussies – has become a revolution in 2016 since Lottoland was awarded a breakthrough five-year licence by the Northern Territory Racing Commision to offer online betting services on the outcome of State & International lotteries across Australia. Lottoland also holds online licenses in its base country of Gibraltar and in the UK!

The company also recently launched a regular draw for Aussies known as Cash4Life Jackpot where you potentially can win $1,000every day for the rest of your life. players “down under” can now be on top of the world without having to travel to the country of lottery origin to legally play for mega prizes!

“We are very excited about this latest Jackpot draw on Sunday, having set the pace in opening up winning customer opportunities from right around the world,” Mr Brill added.

“So again, while there will be massive queues at lottery kiosks across the US, as well as thousands of Canadians hopping the border, residents in Australia just go to and give themselves a chance of becoming a mega millionaire”.

* Since launching in 2013, Lottoland has built a customer base of circa 2 million in less than three years, and has become a world leader in the online lottery sector, boasting a range of exciting customer options.

Mega jackpot “plays” are available to punters seven days a week, with EuromIllions, EuroJackpot, and MegaMillions also among their lottery smorgasbord.
