Metro Manila (CNN Philippines) — It’s fair play now to win lottery prizes wherever you are in the world. The online lottery ticket purchasing makes it possible for Filipinos miles away from the United States to participate in the Powerball draw.

“I imagine there are lottery players all over the world dreaming about what homes and cars they might buy, the holidays they might take, and with whom they might share their prize if they are lucky enough to win a US$523 million (equivalent to ₱26 billion) Powerball jackpot,” said TheLotter spokesperson Adrian Cooremans.

He said that in the past, playing the Powerball lottery would mean traveling to the United States to purchase Powerball tickets in person. “Amazingly, this is no longer necessary,” he stressed.

“Millions of people from all over the world, are ordering their tickets with us. We are glad to offer our services to residents of the Philippines as well,” Cooremans said.

Here’s how it works

According to Powerball rules, Cooremans said one does not have to be an American citizen or resident to play American lotteries. By utilizing the online lottery ticket purchasing services of theLotter, a bettor can participate in Powerball draws with official tickets with the same chance of winning as someone who bought their tickets themselves.

Playing the lottery online at theLotter is a simple process:

1. Sign up at

2. Select the Powerball lottery

3. Choose 5 numbers (from 1-69) on the playing form

4. Choose 1 ‘Powerball’ number (from 1-26) in the orange field on the form

5. Confirm your ticket purchase

“When you order Powerball tickets online with us, our local agents in the US will purchase them on your behalf,” Cooremans said.

A small surcharge is added to ticket prices to cover the cost of this service. After being purchased, each ticket is scanned and uploaded to a customer’s account before the draw. With this scanned version of the ticket and email confirmation, customers can rest assured that they have full ownership of their tickets.

If you are lucky enough to win, your prize will be transferred to your secure, private account, and you can withdraw it at any time. The good news is that theLotter does not take any commissions from winning tickets. A sidenote here — lottery prizes are subject to tax deductions in the United States.

Real winners

Over the years, theLotter has paid out more than US$100 million in prizes to over 6 million winners from across the globe. The stories of theLotter’s biggest winners show that no matter where you are in the world, you can play, and possibly win, huge American jackpot prizes without purchasing your tickets in person in the United States.

Yes, there are winners from the Philippines!

“While there has yet to be a jackpot winner from the Philippines, Filipinos have won amazing prizes playing online at theLotter,” Cooremans shared.

B.J.L., an engineer from Manila who prefers anonymity, loves playing local lottery games. However, due to the pandemic, he was unable to buy his favorite lottery tickets, which could only be purchased in person. Instead, he purchased US Powerball tickets online at theLotter and ended up winning a third-division $50,000 Powerball prize in the draw on March 10, 2021.
