Many international lotteries have now opened their doors to players based in India and to Indians living as expats abroad.

Top European Lotteries
There are a number of famous European lotteries that players in India now have access to. The most popular of these by far, despite the jackpot rarely exceeding Â£30,000,000m is of course the UK lottery. Many Indian expats living in London and the like get used to purchasing UK lottery tickets online and are disappointed when they cannot do so from India when they choose to return. PlayUKLottery has now thankfully closed that gap and the UK lottery is proving very popular in India now too.
Other European lotteries that have had sizeable jackpots over the last year or two are the Italian SuperEna lottery and the EuroMillions – both have had international jackpots in excess of 150,000,000 Euros – so if ever you wanted that personal castle in France… now is the time to try your luck! Other European lotteries that have more recently been made available to the international market are the French Loto, the Spanish El Gordo and the more generic EuroJackpot lottery.
Best Australian Lotteries
The two most popular Antipodean lotteries are the Australian Powerball and the OzLotto. Neither of them is too grand in terms of the size of the weekly jackpots. What is interesting about the OzLotto though, besides being one of the cheaper lotteries to buy into, is the number of lucky numbers you can pick – that’s a whopping 7 numbers from 1 to 45. It’s one of the few lotteries where you can pick that extra number you kind of wished you had! Sign up today to try your luck at any of the Australian lotteries below:
Top South American Lottos
Also part of the BRICS group of countries, like India, Brazil offers a lottery that can be quite substantial. At present, the Brazilian MegaSena is the only South American/ Caribbean lottery available for players in India. Players need to pick 6 numbers ranging from 1 to 60 and the draws are held in Brazil every Wednesday and Saturday.
