About Lucky Lotteries
Lucky Lotteries has two products: the Lucky Lotteries Super Jackpot and the Lucky Lotteries Mega Jackpot.
Both Lucky Lotteries Super Jackpot and Lucky Lotteries Mega Jackpot have thousands of guaranteed prizes in every draw, from free tickets through to a 1st Prize of $100,000 and $200,000 respectively.
In addition to the guaranteed prizes in every draw, Lucky Lotteries is also a jackpotting game. The jackpot in the Lucky Lotteries game is won when the selected jackpot ticket number has already won a cash prize in that same draw. If the selected jackpot ticket hasn't already won a cash prize in that draw, then the top prize jackpots.
Unlike other lottery games where the top prize is often shared between winners, Lucky Lotteries is a draw lottery where the jackpot winner takes the lot. This means the jackpot prize can only be won by a unique Lucky Lotteries ticket number.
