At this pace, the Powerball could soon break its own world-record and award a prize higher than the mammoth US$1.58 billion jackpot that stunned the world back in January 2016.
According to the official Powerball website, “You do not have to be a [US] citizen or a resident to play the game.” Indeed, players from anywhere in the world can “purchase a Powerball ticket… play the game and… collect prizes.”
And while you may be eager to take your chances and play the almost NZ$1 billion Powerball, you probably can’t afford to travel to the United States to make this sort of purchase. Luckily, you can play the Powerball from the comfort of your home!
So how can you play from outside the US?
The easy solution is using the services of theLotter, the leading online ticket purchasing company. Local agents in the US buy official lotto tickets on behalf of customers from around the world. The website charges you a transaction fee and in return, you get a scan of any ticket bought before the draw.
And no, commissions aren’t taken from winning tickets.
The system works, as can be seen from this story about a man from Iraq who won a US$6.4 million jackpot in Oregon – all without ever leaving home.
Iraqi wins Oregon Megabucks jackpot without leaving Baghdad
Baghdad resident M.M. had been playing lotteries at theLotter for only a few months when he decided to take a chance at winning the US$6.4 million Oregon Megabucks jackpot in August 2015. Shortly after the draw took place, he received a call from a customer service representative at theLotter informing him of his amazing jackpot win.
“I was in shock,” he said.
The Iraqi’s lottery win was such a unique story that it was reported in the New York Times, the Daily Mail, NBC, CNN, and Associated Press. All publications noted that it was perfectly legal for foreigners to win American lottery prizes by purchasing official tickets online at theLotter.
