Betting On The US Powerball Lottery In The UK

Alongside Mega Millions, the US Powerball shares the top spot for the biggest American lottery draw and is famous worldwide for the size that the jackpot can reach. The minimum jackpot payout currently starts at $20m, but when this begins to roll over, the prizes can escalate quickly, and at its peak in 2016, three winning tickets shared the biggest prize in the history of $1.6bn! With jaw-dropping sums like that on offer, it's no surprise that people outside the States want to get involved.

At Lottomart Games, we offer you the chance to do just that by betting on the outcome of the official US Powerball draw without the need to fly to the USA to buy your tickets. With a 1 in 25 chance of scooping a prize and 9 ways to win, you can select your favourite numbers quickly and easily online and then all you need to do is sit back and wait for the results to come in from the Florida studio to see if you've won!

How does betting on US Powerball differ from buying a ticket in the draw?

People outside the US can't buy a physical ticket in the official draw. That's why betting on the outcome is a great choice. You can still take your chance of winning the huge jackpots on offer by registering and making your selections simply and easily online at Lottomart Games.

You won't notice any real difference when selecting your numbers or making the Quick Picks - the game's structure is identical, and if you're lucky enough to match all 6 numbers and win, then Lottomart Games will payout. For full details on what betting on lotteries with Lottomart is all about, please head to our lotto page here.

How do I check the US Powerball results?

Checking the results of any lotto draw on Lottomart Games is straightforward. When on-site or in the app, head to the My Buys section to see the results for all the draws you have bet on. If you're eager to check if you've been one of our lucky winners, you won't have long to wait for the results. We will make them available as quickly as we possibly can after the official draw has taken place.

Most wins will be automatically credited to your account quickly after the draw concludes, meaning cash will be in your account within a few hours of the draw. If you've managed to hit a big one, then due to the size of the payouts on offer, these prizes may require a few more verification checks, and we will aim to have the winnings credited to your account as soon as those are complete.

How do I boost my chances of winning the US Powerball?

Lottomart is the only place you can take advantage of a unique feature we've developed to help you increase the chances of winning a prize on the US Powerball or any of the lotteries we offer.

Boost works by offering you the choice of decreasing the jackpot prize in return for a proportionate increase in your chances to win said prize. All this is free, offering an increased chance of hitting a big win! Here's how it works:

Let's say you've heard that the US Powerball main jackpot has hit a staggering £640m, and you want to get involved from outside the USA.

For the same price as a single line bet, you can choose to boost your bet by up to 32x and accept a proportionate reduction in the jackpot in return. So in the scenario above, you could choose to have one line bet with a chance of winning £640m or 32 line bets with a chance of winning £20m! You could even have it both ways and do both! The choice of how to attack those big prizes is totally up to you.

For more information on the exclusive boost feature at Lottomart Games, visit the pages dedicated to boosting in our support section, or why not just have a play around with the simple-to-use functionality when placing your next lotto bet.

Prize tiers 1, 2, and 3 are subject to a 38% reduction; the equivalent deduction for state and federal tax that is paid by winners of the underlying lottery draw.

Prize tier 1 (the jackpot) may be subject to an additional adjustment if it is paid all at once (lump sum) rather than in yearly instalments (annuity). Lump sum payouts are subject to a variable prize reduction, which is at minimum 40%. The final lump sum reduction percentage depends on the size of the jackpot and is determined by the underlying lottery for each draw. Winners may request their preferred option; however, the final payout plan chosen is at our sole discretion.

The advertised jackpot amount shows the value without any deductions or lump sum reductions. The max jackpot value shown is for indicative purposes only and uses the 38% tax deduction and an estimated 40% lump sum reduction value. The final jackpot value that will be paid out can only be determined once the draw has concluded and the final lump sum reduction percentage is known.
