Lottoland is a new frontier in Australian gambling, allowing Aussie punters to place a bet on the outcome of lotteries from all over the world. You may have seen this new lotto service being advertised on TV or radio, as Lottoland has made a pretty strong entrance into the Aussie market. But what is it all about? And is it worth playing at Lottoland? Read on as we uncover the mystery surrounding this new online gambling service.
How does Lottoland work?
Lottoland uses a form of gambling known as Lotto Betting, which is a little different to your standard lotto play. Lotto Betting means you are betting on the outcome of a lottery instead of actually purchasing a ticket to go in the lottery draw. Just like when purchasing an official lottery ticket, you select the lucky numbers you hope to see come up during the draw, however your bet is on the results.
Sound a bit dodgy? Rest assured Lottery Betting is completely legitimate, with Lottoland games legally licensed within Australia. It’s this creative form of betting which allows Aussies to participate in the global lotteries, which wouldn’t be available to us otherwise. If you win your bet, you’ll still receive the same prize money as if you had bought a ticket to the actual draw itself, plus this betting model means Lottoland can offer benefits like free games, bonuses and boosted jackpots, which you won’t get from standard lottery vendors.
Is it legal?
Lottoland is 100% legal, receiving its license from the Government of the Northern Territory under the Racing and Betting Act 1983 (NT). The Northern Territory is a reputable online gambling jurisdiction, providing licenses to other big names in the online betting industry like William Hill and Bet365. The company is fully insured and audited by KPMG, with insurance-linked securities in Gibraltar. Lottoland has $100 million securely set aside to ensure payouts are available when major jackpots are won.
Take note: Lottoland does not accept players from the Netherlands or the United States.

In May 2017, Lottoland added a new offering to its range of online lottery services – Keno 24/7. Following a classic pub style keno format, players can now place bets on the outcomes of keno games every four minutes, with flexible wagering options allowing wagers from as little as $1.00 per game. You can choose to play as many games as you like per draw, choosing up to 10 numbers per game, with the amount of money you stand to win increasing with the more numbers you choose. Winnings are multiplied by the value of your bet, so the higher you stake, the higher your winning potential.
Are there any bonuses available at Lottoland?
This is where Lottoland really sets itself apart from the standard Australian lotto draws, offering a range of promotional offers, bonuses and special deals you’d never find from a retail lottery outlet. Taking advantage of bonus offers simply requires you to enter a promotional voucher upon checkout, depending on the lottery you’re playing. Here is an example of some of the bonus vouchers available:
- 2 for 1 on US Powerball – enter voucher PB2F1AUS
- 15% off US Powerball subscription – enter voucher AUEMSUB15
- Save 15% on EuroMillions – enter voucher AUEMSUB15

Note these bonus offers are subject to change at any time, and may not always apply to players from all Australian states. Check the ‘promotions’ tab on the Lottoland homepage for further details.
What AUD payment options are available?
Lottoland accepts payments in Australian dollars using major Aussie payment methods: Visa, MasterCard, BPay, and POLi.
Some punters may be disappointed to find e-Wallet services like Neteller or Skrill and pre-paid methods like Paysafecard aren’t available. This should only be a problem if you’re wishing to gamble anonymously, as payments via the accepted deposit methods mean all Lottoland transactions will show up on your linked credit card or bank account.
There are no minimum deposit amounts at Lottoland and no transaction fees on any of your payments, however, keep in mind some Australian financial institutions may charge a ‘cash advance fee’ on payments to Lottoland as they’re classified as ‘gambling transactions.’ You’ll need to contact your credit card provider to see if a cash advance fee applies to your Lottoland transactions.
All transactions at Lottoland are protected using the same 128 Bit Digital SSL (Secure Socket Layer) digital encryption used by Australian banks.
