A chance to WIN BIG in the American lotteries with Lottoland SA

Published Apr 22, 2024


Everything is big in America, including two of the world’s largest lotteries! The US MegaMillions has had some of the world's biggest payouts ever and holds the record for the biggest single lottery win in history. Right now, the equivalent of R3,9 billion can be won in the US MegaMillions, ahead of the US Powerball, which is also considered one of the ‘big three’ in international lotteries. The US Powerball has had three of the top five lottery payouts in the world of all time, with the current prize money standing at R2,2 billion.

The good news for South Africans is that you don’t have to be in America to be part of the MegaMillions and Powerball action as you stand a chance to win by using the Lottoland SA platform for fixed-odds betting. Log onto Lottoland SA using your smartphone, tablet or computer wherever you are, and place your bet online on the outcome of these two gigantic draws, or any of more than 30 other international lotteries.

A standard game for MegaMillions starts at R50 with draws every Wednesday and Saturday at 5am SA time. US Powerball bets start at R55, and the draw takes place every Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday morning at 5am SA time.

But, if you are a little cash-strapped and pay-day is still far in the distance, there is an option exclusively on Lottoland SA to place smaller Mini-bets on MegaMillions or Powerball. For the price of only a few Rands, successful Mini-bets will pay out 10% of the total prize money, which can still amount to hundreds of millions of Rands!

This means that a R7,50 bet placed on the outcome of the MegaMillions, could currently win you an incredible R390 million; and a R10 bet on the outcome of the Powerball could let you walk away with R220 million! If you guessed the winning numbers, you’ll be paid out the same as you would have if you entered the official draw in the USA. The entire process is digital, and winners are contacted automatically by Lottoland SA.
