Win Big On a Budget!

The 8 Cheapest International Lotteries to Bet On

If you like taking advantage of cheap Tuesdays at the movies, spend days combing through the web for the best deal for your flights to Fiji, or prefer to put more clothes on rather than switch on the heater during winter, then you will probably be interested to know that some lotteries are much cheaper to bet on than others. Now that Australians are able to bet on international lotteries in addition to the regular local lotteries, there’s far more choice available and also an opportunity to spend a lot less, while still playing for mega jackpots! So if ‘going Dutch’ is your thing, it might pay to bet on overseas lotteries in your quest to become a multi-millionaire.

The 8 Cheapest International Lotteries to Bet On

Cheap and Cheerful World Lotteries

While Australian lotteries generally represent good value for money, there’s some cheap and cheerful international lotteries offering a range of giant jackpots that are definitely worth considering.

At an incredibly low 50 cents per game, the Polish MINILotto is the clear stand-out! The following table lists the cheapest international lotteries available to bet on at Lottoland (prices subject to change).

Lottery Cost per Bet
Polish MINI Lotto $0.50
KeNow $1
Polish Lotto $1.25
German Keno $1.50
Swedish Lotto $1.50
El Gordo de la Primitiva $2.50
Cash4Life $2.50
Mega-Sena $2.50



Poles Ahead

Polish MINI Lotto is the clear winner when it comes to cheap lotteries. With prices starting from just 50 cents per bet, and a draw every day, it has quickly become a Lottoland favourite with Australians!

The daily first prize jackpot is €70,000 (approximately $105,000), and if it’s not won, it’s divided equally between the next division’s winners.

Another great thing about Polish Mini Lotto is that the odds of winning – 1 : 850,668 – are some of the best in the business!

To win your small fortune, you need to pick 5 numbers from 42. Because Polish MINI Lotto is so cheap to bet on, many Lottoland players like to utilise a System Bet when betting on this pint-sized lottery. System bets cost a little more, but increase the number of potentially winning combinations.

The Poles also take out the third place in Lottoland's cheapest international lotteries podium with their regular Polish Lotto. With prices starting at just $1.25 a bet, and jackpots that have reached $18 million, it’s another sure-fire winner for the frugal lotto player.

Polish Lotto requires you to pick six numbers from 49. The Polish Lotto takes place three times a week, on a Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday at 9.40pm CET (5.40am AEST/7.40am AEDT Wednesday, Friday and Sunday).

With KeNow you can win up to $1 million every 4 minutes so you never have to wait long for a shot at becoming a millionaire.

KeNow requires you to select between 1 and 10 numbers between a range of 1-70. You can choose how many numbers you want to play between 1-10, with a $1 million jackpot on offer if you bet on a 10 number game and match all 10 against the 20 numbers drawn when betting with a stake of $10. KeNow operates every 4 minutes between 2.34pm AEST / 4.34pm AEDT and 7.54am AEST / 9.54am AEDT, 7 days a week.


Wunderbar German Keno!

It’s not just Oktoberfest and sauerkraut we have the Germans to thank for. Their daily dose of German Keno is cheap to bet on and has huge jackpots!

With bets starting from as little as $1.50 and a $1,500,000 jackpot on its draws, it really is wunderbar!

Twenty balls are drawn from numbers 1 to 70 and you choose how many numbers you want to bet with between 2 and 10 numbers. To win the big jackpot, you must bet on the 10 number game and match all 10 of your numbers against the 20 drawn betting with a stake of $15.

Draws take place daily at 7.10pm CET (3.10am AEST/5.10am AEDT).


Swedish Lotto

With a jackpot that has reached 215 million SEK (approx. $33 million), great odds of winning and a low price-point, it’s easy to see why Swedish Lotto has quickly climbed the ranks as an Aussie favourite since Lottoland launched downunder in 2016!

Swedish Lotto sees 7 balls drawn between the numbers 1-35. Match all 7 in an individual bet, and you’ll be screaming ‘Mamma Mia’!

The odds of landing the jackpot – 1 : 6,724,520 – are better than any of the Australian lotteries.

Swedish lotto is held twice a week on Wednesdays and Saturdays. On both days, there’s actually two draws in one, so be sure to tick both the Lotto 1 & 2 box if you want to be involved in both draws.


Super Sunday in Spain: El Gordo de la Primitiva

Boasting a minimum weekly jackpot of $5 million, Spain’s El Gordo de la Primitiva Lottery is another cheapie worth planning a party around.

Five numbers are drawn from the main pool of 1-54, and then a key number between 0-9 is drawn from the second pool. To win the jackpot, you match all 5 numbers from the main pool and the key number from the second pool in an individual bet.

Spain’s super Sunday lottery is unique in that it offers a ‘money back’ feature! If your number is ‘0’ and you fail to match 2 or more main pool numbers in an individual bet, you get your entire stake back!

Spain’s El Gordo de la Primitiva lottery is held every Sunday at 9.30pm CET (5.30am AEST / 7.30am AEDT Monday).


Dance the Samba with Mega-Sena!

The largest lottery in South America is not only cheap to bet on, it also has mega-jackpots reaching as high as approximately $92 million!

Bets in South America’s Mega-Sena Lottery start from as little as $2.50. Six numbers are drawn between a range of 1-60. Match all 6 and you’ll be booking first-class tickets to Rio De Janeiro for Carnival!
