Lottery messenger services, companies that buy physical lottery tickets on behalf of online players, have revolutionized the way we play the lottery. Today, the world’s lotteries are available to players from all over the world. You can play the American Mega Millions or Powerball, with their incredible jackpots, without setting foot in the United States. Or, Australia’s Saturday Lotto, with its great winning odds, without the long flight to Sydney.
In short, you are no longer limited by what’s available at the local store or petrol station, it’s possible to find the lottery you’re looking for online. While online lottery play is slightly more expensive than playing a local lottery, there are a number of features that make the small price difference worth it.
Find Exactly What You’re Looking For
When your heart is set on something, it is disappointing to have to compromise. With online lottery play, it is possible to find exactly what you’re looking for. If you want to play for the biggest jackpots in the world, they’re online. Perhaps you’re looking for the lotteries with the best winning odds? They’re also online.

Knowledge is Power
When you play the lottery online, it’s possible to keep track of exactly how much you’ve spent on tickets and how much you’ve won. We said it before, playing the lottery should be fun. And it should fit your budget. Knowing where you stand in terms of money spent and money won is an important tool to ensure that your lottery play stays on the right side of fun. If you find that playing the lottery is no longer fun or is becoming problematic, it is possible to self-exclude so that you are unable to play.
Boost Your Odds
US Powerball consistently has the largest jackpot in the world. In fact, it’s the lottery that holds the jackpot world record of $1.6 billion set in January 2016. Unfortunately, Powerball’s huge jackpots are only possible because the odds of winning the kjackpot are relatively low. However, there are ways to increase your Powerball winning odds. The easiest way is to join a syndicate and boost your winning odds by hundreds or even thousands of times, without spending hundreds or thousands more. By boosting your winning odds while keeping the ticket price the same, you’re actually getting a discount!
Take Advantage of Sales
While lottery tickets at the local market will never go on sale, online lottery messenger services have promotions, sales, and schemes all the time. It’s common for lottery messenger service to have holiday sales on certain lotteries or even site wide. Many online lottery ticket services also offer subscriptions or multi-draw entries where players can buy entries to consecutive draws for a predetermined amount of time or number of draws. In either case, the cost per entry will be lower. A savvy shopper can always find a way to pay less when playing online.
