@Curb Safe Charmer: The reference from Calvin Ayre was marked as a press release, as that is the category they placed it under on their site. According to Press Release, it is not actually a press release, but a news article from a very trusted and internationally acclaimed source in the online gambling industry. Only problem is, is that it's from 2014, but I still think it is still very valid for referencing the product offering. Also, you have written that "the additional reference is clearly attributed to Jaclyn Wood of The Lottery Office. This type of coverage does not help establish notability", but this source states the increase in demand for The Lottery Office, and the industry on a whole. It is supporting what I have written about an increase in traffic during lockdown. Savings.com is another really reputable source, I understand your point that it isn't giving an overview of the Lottery OFfice though. I have added another reference which was released today.

I have added a new reference released on our main news network in Sydney this morning, this could be beneficial for this article. I really hope so. It would mean that we have three independent, reliable, secondary sources that contain significant coverage of the topic.

The Lottery Office is an Australian privately-owned and operated, online lottery operator licensed by the Government of the Northern Territory, Australia. It’s operated by a parent company, Global Players Network Pty Ltd, which has been licensed and regulated to operate lotteries since 2003. The Lottery Office is not affiliated with the operators of overseas lotteries.

History and overview[edit]

In June 2018, the Australian Federal Government passed legislation to ban lottery betting under the Interactive Gaming Act. It is now illegal for Australians to bet on the outcome of foreign lotteries, through operators like Lottoland.[1] However, unlike 'lottery betting' companies, The Lottery Office does not allow players to bet on the outcome of a lottery draw.[2] Instead, players receive a ticket from The Lottery Office who then purchase a matching ticket in the relevant overseas lottery draw.[3]


The Lottery Office is the only lottery in Australia that allows Aussies to participate in foreign lottery draws,[4] leaving anti-gambling associations concerned due to an increased interest in this mainstream lottery alternative, especially during Covid-19 lockdown.[5] Matching tickets are purchased in the following international lotteries:[6]

  • Powerball (USA Power Lotto)
  • Mega Millions (USA Mega Lotto)
  • EuroMillions (European Millions)
  • Eurojackpot (European Jackpot)
  • SuperEnalotto (Italian Super Jackpot)
  • Irish National Lottery (Irish Lotto)
  • UK National Lottery (UK Lotto)

Licenses, auditing and compliance[edit]

Global Players Network is licensed in Australia, to market lottery products internationally via the internet and mail order. In 2003, then again in 2013, the company received a Lottery Business Licence (mail order) by the Government of the Northern Territory of Australia. In 2014, an Internet Gaming Licence was issued to GPN, by the Government of the Northern Territory of Australia.[7]

To meet all regulatory requirements set out by the Northern Territory Government, Lottery companies must regularly undertake financial and operational audits. The Lottery Office additionally receives ongoing and contemporaneous auditing of customer orders against matching tickets purchased. Responsible gambling measures must be ensured for the safety of all players.[8] Players must be over 18 years of age and utilise features such as weekly deposit limits, self-exclusion and take a break functions.
