How Does Lottoland Work?
To start off our Lottoland review let’s first take a look at how the site works. Initially, the site took lotto bets by allowing Australians to bet on the outcomes of official lotteries around the world.
However, this was changed in 2019 into ‘Jackpot Betting.’ Jackpot betting creates fixed-amount prize pools where the winning numbers are determined by the values of certain financial markets.
Lottoland Australia uses the last two digits of the initial values of certain financial markets at the end of a week or day. They then place all the digits in order to create a 10-digit number. The number is the ID of the quasi lotto combination.
The winning numbers are decided by financial markets to ensure the resulting numbers are unknown to anyone. Since the numbers are completely random and cannot be manipulated by anyone, everyone has a fair shot.
Players can choose any numbers between a certain range when playing the jackpot lotteries. They may also use a random number generator if need be. Winning numbers will be generated by the site at a specific time each day/week.
Our Lottoland review also uncovered some unique features and advantages that aren’t available when betting on the lotto normally:
- The payouts and deposits are for winnings are extremely fast.
- A number of free tickets are available.
- Special game types not available with normal lotto tickets can be found on the site.
- Number Shield Betting allows you to keep winnings to yourself, even if other people have the same numbers.
Still, looking to learn more about how the online lotteries are conducted? Our Lottoland review found the ‘FAQ’ section of the website to be very helpful.
What Lotteries can you bet on with Lottoland Australia?
Our Lottoland review found that the operator offers a range of jackpot lotteries for players to bet on. Lotteries are generally either weekly or daily and give users the chance to win millions from jackpots. Some of the most popular lottos currently available at Lottoland Australia are:
Originally the Lottoland Powerball, the US Powerball draws twice weekly on Tuesday and Thursday, bets close at 11:00 pm AEST. The main jackpot begins at a massive $200 million making it one of the biggest jackpot lottos on the site!
The odds of hitting the main jackpot on the US Power is 1: 292,201,338 and there are 9 winning tiers. The price per ticket is $5 in which users must pick 5 numbers and a Super Number.
As mentioned above, the US Power is a Super Number Jackpot. This means the numbers for the jackpot are decided by financial markets. Numbers are generated based on the opening values of selected Financial Market Indexes at 9:30 am ET.
- Dow Jones Ind. Avg- 1st Decimal
- Dow Jones Ind. Avg- 2nd Decimal
- NASDAQ Biotechnology- 1st Decimal
- NASDAQ Biotechnology- 2nd Decimal
- S&P 500- 1st Decimal
- S&P 500- 2nd Decimal

- NASDAQ 100 Financial: 2nd Decimal
Syndicates are available for the US Power in which players may split prize money based on their initial investment.
Lottoland Mega Millions
The Lottoland Mega Millions was renamed in the US Millions and is drawn twice weekly on Wednesday and Friday at 11:00 pm AEST. The jackpot lottery boasts a minimum jackpot of $184 Million and gives a 1 : 302,575,350 shot at hitting it.
Much like the US Powerball, there are 9 winning tiers and the price per ticket is $5. Players will be required to pick 5 numbers plus a Super Number to take part.
The US Millions uses the same financial markets are the US Powerball but the numbers are used in a different order. To hit the jackpot users must match all five numbers they pick and the Super Number.
Lottoland Daily/Weekly Lotteries
Our Lottoland review found four more lotteries available on the site on top of US Powerball and US Millions. The lotteries are:
This one takes place every Thursday, the lottery has a $55,000,000 jackpot. Bets close at 11:00 pm AEST every Thursday and results are taken from the opening values of selected Financial Markets at 09:30 am ET. Chances of hitting the jackpot are 1:134,490,400 and the price of tickets are $3 each.
The jackpot starts at 8 million and tickets cost only $2. Hitting the jackpot is much more likely than other lotteries with a 1:45,379,620 chance. There are seven winning tiers for the Tuesday Jackpot and players are required to choose 7 numbers and 2 extra numbers.
Monday & Wednesday Jackpot
This is a bi-weekly jackpot which is held on both Monday and Wednesday for a very low $1. The jackpot for the lottery is fixed at $2.5 Million. The chance of hitting big on the jackpot is 1:8,145,060, requiring players to hit all 6 of their numbers and 2 extra numbers.
The Daily Millions is played every single weekday, giving players the chance to score up to $100 Million. Tickets cost $2.50 and need to be submitted before 11:00 pm AEST every day.
*All of the lotteries named above provide users with the chance to play by themselves or using syndicates.
Lottoland betting syndicates allow you to make multiple bets for a given jackpot or jackpots with other players. You will then receive a share of the winnings if any of the bets win. The idea behind syndicates is the larger the number of bets the higher your chances of winning.
Each Lottoland Australia syndicate has a set number of shares. So for example, if you enter a syndicate with 20 shares and purchase 1 share, you will receive 1/20th of the winnings. If you had purchased 5 shares you would get 1/4th of the syndicates’ winnings and so on.
To enter a syndicate at Lottoland Australia click on the ‘Syndicates’ button on the main menu bar. You may then choose which lottery you would like to wager on and join/buy shares. Shares prices for syndicates can vary greatly but are generally between $5-$100.
Syndicates a great way to alleviate the burden of buying a large number of tickets while increasing your chance to win.

Lottoland Australia Review Overview
Our Lottoland Australia review concludes that the operator is one of the best lottery-based sites in the region. While Lottoland no longer offers the chance to play international lotteries, the jackpot lotteries that are now available provide different opportunities.
The lotteries all provide larger jackpots than normal and the chance to play all throughout the week. The US Powerball and US Million, in particular, give players the chance to win hundreds of millions on a bi-weekly basis.
The Lottoland App is arguably the site’s biggest selling point. The app is very easy to use and gives players the ability to buy tickets within seconds. Browser-based mobile betting is also available if needed.
Where our Lottoland Australia review found that the operator could improve is with payment methods and daily games. At the moment there are only 4 deposit options available on the site and only bank transfer withdrawals. We expect the number of payment providers to increase over the next couple of years.
