theLotter: Australians are in a frenzy to place orders for tonight’s US Mega Millions’ AU$1.14 billion jackpot draw


theLotter Australia[], recently licensed by the Northern Territory Government, launched a few months ago. The company now reports processing a massive number of orders for tonight’s American Mega Millions, after the official US lottery rolled over last Friday. The Mega Millions jackpot rose to US$790 million[] (which equates to AU$1.14 billion) after no one picked the right numbers for the Friday night drawing. Eager to have a go in tonight’s draw, a growing number of Australians are turning to theLotter Australia to secure their entries through the online service.

“A jackpot like this reminds us all of events in 2016 and 2018,” states Kelly Signell, Director of the theLotter’s Australian operations. “First, in January of 2016, Powerball rose to AU$2.3 billion: a sum, which was won and shared by 3 separate US-based ticketholders. Mega Millions itself set a record in October 2018 when one player won the entire AU$2.2 billion jackpot, making this the biggest win by a single ticket in lottery history. If the AU$1.14 billion Mega Millions jackpot isn’t won tonight, it is set to rise towards the AU$1.5 billion mark. And there is no reason why it couldn’t be won by an Australian this time.”

theLotter Australia allows customers to place orders for overseas lottery draws online via its 3rd party ticket agents. In addition, it provides many convenient functionalities: from subscriptions and multi-draw packages to real-time jackpot alerts. The site also offers a scan of the purchased paper ticket matching the numbers the client has picked. When a client wins a prize, they are informed immediately.
