Lottery Odds

When you buy tickets from the Lottery Concierge Service you should be aware that each lottery plays differently. Rules vary across the different lotteries, as do the way the games are played.  And these differences will affect the lottery odds, giving you more chance of winning in some draws than others. However, a decrease in the odds of winning usually comes with significantly enhanced jackpot prizes.

Although the odds of winning large prizes some lotteries seem highly unlikely, the upper tier prizes means that you shouldn't dismiss buying tickets for draws with difficult odds but instead consider putting together a lottery ticket syndicate to increase your chances of winning the bumper jackpots.
Below are some of our favourite lottery draws and the odds of winning the bigger prizes.
