This method will allow you to buy a lottery ticket for any major drawing, and some of the smaller ones, too. All of the world’s biggest, fastest growing, multi-million-dollar lotteries are available, including the U.S. Powerball and Mega Millions, the U.K. Lotto and EuroMillions, the Australian TattsLotto and Oz Lotto, etc. Monumental jackpots are being won every week in these games, and in recent years, more and more players have been non-residents.
There are countless websites claiming to sell legitimate lottery tickets, but don’t be fooled. Some are highly reputable, but most are not. Choosing a safe, secure and honest website is an absolute must!
The most widely known and distinguished international lottery website is Lotto Land. It is a privately owned operation, established in 2013. Lottoland.com accepts players from most regions of the world, including Canada (but excluding the U.S.). The website is licensed for international lottery sales by the Gibraltar Betting and Gaming Association, and is also licensed for UK-based sales by the UK Gambling Commission, which speaks volumes to the site’s integrity. Payments are guaranteed, and backed by millions of dollars worth of insurance.
I’ve personally viewed the homepages of multiple sites claiming to be this reputable, but none have been near so transparent. Lottery247 is a well known mobile lottery app, but it does not list its regulators and insurances up front, which is enough to raise a red flag in my book. You’re welcome to scour the web for other online lottery sales, just be careful who you do business with. If you do get lucky enough to beat the odds, it would be a shame to miss out on all that money.
Why Can Lotto Sites Buy Foreign Tickets and I Can’t?
It’s simple, really. Take Lottoland for example. Lottoland has a host of representatives working for them all over the world. Some are stationed in the UK, some in Australia, some in South America and the United States. When a member of the lottery website purchases a ticket, a rep from that location buys the ticket.
Let’s say you want a Quick Pick in the El Gordo, the national lottery of Spain. A representative in Lottoland’s Spain office purchases the ticket. This person is a resident, and is therefore legally able to buy the ticket. If this ticket goes on to win, that representative will cash the ticket and receive the winnings.
This representative cannot keep the money, though. They are contractually bound to deposit the money into a Lottoland bank account, from which the rightful owner – you, the Lottoland member that paid for the ticket – will be transferred the winnings. And because the website is dutifully regulated by the world’s strictest remote gambling authorities, you know that your winnings are forthcoming.
