Australians get online green light to play largest global lottery prize in history as US Powerball Jackpot hits $1.3B!

In a unique and revolutionary offer, Australian citizens will now be able to register online & play the looming $1.3 billion US (approx $2 billion AUD) Powerball – the largest jackpot lottery of all time!

Lottoland has become the first company of its kind awarded a five-year licence by the Northern Territory Racing Commission to offer online betting services on the outcomes of state and international lotteries across Australia. The fast-growing Lottoland also holds online gambling licenses from the Government of Gibraltar, where it is based, and the UK Gambling Commission.

Through NT licensed lottery 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 the mega prize!

Lottoland spokesman in Australia Luke Brill said the breakthrough would open the eyes of Australians who love playing lotteries, but can now play conveniently online through us for huge prizes around the globe.

“We are very excited about this, and Lottoland is setting the pace in opening up winning customer opportunities right around the world,” Mr Brill said.

“While there will be massive queues at lottery kiosks right across the US, as well as Canadians pouring across the border, all securing their Powerball tickets, Australians can simply go to and give themselves a chance of becoming the world’s first Lottery billionaire.”

Punters at Lottoland will pay just $10.50 for a game.

“This is the biggest event in lottery history, and has captured the imagination of Americans coast to coast,” Mr Brill added. “It’s quite incredible now to think Australian citizens through Lottoland can join in on the race to win a mega international lottery without having to leave the comfort of their own lounge room or office!”

The US Powerball draw will take place 2pm AEDT on Thursday (Australian time).

* 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, MegaMillions also among their lottery smorgasbord.
