Some of the bigger lotteries available include big fish such as the US Powerball and US MegaMillions, with insane jackpots that can go above and beyond the $1 billion mark. European lotteris such as the Euromillions are also included, which can exceed $100 million.
Local Australian lotteries are also offered, including Monday & Wednesday Lotto, Tuesday Lotto (OZ Lotto), Thursday Lotto (Powerball) and Saturday Lotto.
