This is the week to bet on the American lotteries!

Here in South Africa, be part of the action and grab the Lottoland SA opportunity to place your bets online on the outcome of America’s two largest lotteries.

Between the US Powerball and the US MegaMillions, the total prize money is currently standing at an unbelievable R19,4 billion! Could someone be so lucky to bet and win both and walk away with a payout of R18.1 Billion on the US MegaMillions and R1.3 Billion on the US Powerball?

With Lottoland SA, punters can use their smartphones or computers wherever they are to place a bet online on the outcome of the two American super lotteries, or on any of more than 30 other international lotteries.

Using ‘fixed-odds betting’ you stand a chance to win some of the biggest payouts in the world. 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.

Lottoland South Africa is a licensed bookmaker with the Western Cape Gambling and racing board, and is recognized around the globe, operating in 15 markets. More than 15 million people around the world are regular customers of Lottoland.

Their international head office is based in Gibraltar, and Lottoland is the first and only gaming company in the world to have its own insurance company, to give players the peace of mind to know that the payouts of their winnings are 100% guaranteed. Winnings are converted into South African Rands and paid out locally into the player’s nominated South African bank account, to provide a welcome boost to the South African economy.

The US MegaMillions has had some of the world's biggest payouts ever, and it holds the record for the biggest single lottery win in history, while the US Powerball has in fact had three of the top five lottery payouts in the world of all time. US Powerball bets start at R55, and the draw takes place every Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday morning at 5am SA time. A standard game for MegaMillions starts at R50 with draws every Wednesday and Saturday at 5am SA time.

But, if money’s too tight to mention and pay-day is a long way off, there is an option with Lottoland SA to place smaller Mini-bets. MegaMillions Mini-bets cost only R7,50 and Powerball’s R15, with pay-outs of 10% of the full prize money guaranteed. What are you waiting for?
