How South Africans can win R8 billion in American lottery prizes this weekend


Lottery fever is once again sweeping the globe! Two American lotteries are offering incredible jackpot prizes and South Africans, too, have a chance to win them.

TheLotter’s most recent big win came in September 2017 when Nataliia from Ukraine won a $1 million Mega Millions second prize.

The Powerball jackpot is currently $385 million USD (R4.6 billion) while the Mega Millions jackpot is set at $290 Million USD (R3.4 billion). Powerball is regarded as the most popular lottery on the globe, ever since it set a world record by awarding a $1.58 billion USD jackpot in January 2016.

The Powerball lottery could soon break its own record and even South Africans can “purchase a Powerball ticket…play the game and…collect prizes.” The official Powerball website clearly states: “You do not have to be a [US] citizen or a resident to play the game.”

There is no need for you to travel from South Africa to the United States to take a chance on winning the Powerball and Mega Millions jackpots. It is possible to play from anywhere by purchasing official tickets at theLotter, the leading online lottery ticket messenger service.

So how can you play Powerball and Mega Millions from outside the United States?

You can register at theLotter and purchase official lottery tickets to play Mega Millions and Powerball, or any of the other 50+ lotteries from around the world on offer. theLotter’s local agents in the United States will buy tickets on your behalf. The website charges a transaction fee and in return you will get a scan of your tickets before the draw. When you win a prize, it is entirely yours as commissions aren’t taken from winning tickets.

The system works, as can be seen in the stories of three lucky lottery players. TheLotter’s most recent big win came in September 2017 when Nataliia from Ukraine won a $1 million Mega Millions second prize. Even bigger wins were recorded by players from Panama and Iraq. All three won huge lottery prizes without ever setting foot in the United States.

Aura was the sole jackpot winner in a July 2017 draw, entitling her to the entire $30 million USD jackpot minus taxes.

Baghdad resident M.M. had been playing lotteries at theLotter for only a few months when he won the $6.4 million USD Oregon Megabucks jackpot in August 2015.

All publications noted that it was perfectly legal for foreigners to win American lottery prizes by purchasing official tickets online at theLotter.
