How to Pick the Best Australian or International Lottery

From Saturday Lotto to SuperEnalotto, EuroJackpot to EuroMillions, Cash4Life to KeNow. There’s so many different lotteries available for Australians to bet on these days, it can sometimes be an overwhelming decision as to which lotteries to play! This simple guide will help steer you in the right direction so that you can find the jackpot that’s right for you.

How to Pick the Best Australian or International Lottery

The Best Lotteries for the Conservative Bettor

Some of us prefer to stick to what we know, and when it comes to lotteries, what Australians know is Monday, Wednesday and Saturday Lotto. For the conservative bettor, these lotteries offer an excellent price point, with bets starting from just 60 cents each. Unlike some international lotteries where the numbers go right up to 90, these lotteries offer a significantly reduced number range of just 1-45. Hence, the odds of winning Monday, Wednesday or Saturday Lotto are stacked more heavily in your favour than many international lotteries, as well as other Australian lotteries. For example, the odds of winning Monday Lotto are 1 in 8,145,060, whereas the odds of winning US Powerball are much larger at 1 in 292,201,338!

While the odds of winning are more in your favour, that often means the jackpots are smaller. Monday and Wednesday Lotto jackpots are $1 million, while Saturday Lotto starts from $4 million. The good news for you is that for a limited time, Lottoland is topping up the jackpots in every Australian lottery by an extra $1 million, at no extra cost to you! This means for as little as 60 cents, you can bet on an Australian lottery and win an additional $1 million if you hit the jackpot!

Just because you’re a conservative lottery bettor, doesn’t mean you have to stick with Down Under’s lotteries. Swedish Lotto – a Lottoland favourite – is also a cost effective lottery to bet on at just $1.50 per game. The odds of winning Swedish Lotto are also better than many other international lotteries at 1 : 6,724,520, and the record jackpot has hit $40 million!

At $0.50 per bet, MINI Lotto is another international lottery that is popular with the conservative bettor due to its low entry cost.

So even if you like to take a conservative approach to your lottery bets, there are some cost effective ways to dip your toes in the international waters of global lotteries.


The Best Lotteries for Those Who Like to Throw Caution to the Wind

You believe that if you’re not first, you’re last. If you’re going to do something, you might as well go all out and do it the best you can! For the lottery bettor who understands the risk/reward equation, welcome to the world of mega-million dollar jackpots!

One of the ultimate prizes for international lottery jackpot hunters is the reward that is offered by US Powerball. Currently, the jackpot is a massive $100 millon USD (approximately $132 million). In 2016, the US Powerball jackpot reached a staggering USD $1.586 billion (approx. $2.1 billion).

The price of a US Powerball bet starts from $5 per game, and while the odds of winning are long at 1 : 292,201,338, they are still not the biggest odds of striking it rich.

That claim goes to Italy’s Super Enalotto, where the odds of hitting the jackpot are 1 : 622,614,630. The record jackpot for Super Enalotto is $270 million and the cost of a bet in this lottery starts from $3 for a standard game.

Other lotteries on the radar of global jackpot bettors include EuroMillions, where the jackpot regularly flirts or goes over the $100 million mark, and El Gordo de Verano, the Spanish summer raffle that offers a prize pool of more than $150 million.
