What is the best world lottery to play?

This is a question we get asked a lot! The majority of the time the answer is we don't know.

With so much variety in the lottery world, it depends on which style of lotto you like the most.

Sure, you hear about people who say the American lotteries are the best to enter. But let's be honest other lesser well-known lotteries offer a much better chance of winning a major prize.

Lotteries that include a free second chance raffle are a sweet spot for most people.

Other players would be happy to share a jackpot prize and often prefer to enter as part of a syndicate.

When looking for a lottery to enter you should also consider aspects like the guess range.

South African Lotto requires players to select 6 numbers from a guess range of 1 to 52.

The American Powerball, you need to pick 5 numbers from a range of 1 to 69 and an additional Powerball number from a range of 1-26.

From here, you can see that you stand a much better chance of winning the South African Lotto jackpot with a 1:20,358,520 chance than winning the American Powerball jackpot with odds of 1:292,201,338.

You should also consider aspects like ticket costs and prize divisions.

For some games, like EuroMillions cash prizes are paid down 13 levels. For others like SuperEnalotto, players are paid down just 6 levels.

The last aspect we’d suggest you check out is the tax requirement on winnings.

This differs massively between lotteries and could also depend on which country you are playing online from.

As you can see there is so much variety in the lottery world.
