Whilst many Indians may be against large-scale gambling generally, playing the lottery appears to be an acceptable avenue for taking a small chance. Given the scale of international lotteries these days, with the US MegaMillions exceeding a massive half billion US dollars in early 2012 for example, Indians all over the world will be glad they can take part in some of these irresistible global lottos.

Each of the jackpot indicators below has a link allowing you to sign up to buy lottery tickets online right away. For your convenience, you need only sign up once to play on any of the foreign lotteries below.
Many Indians both local and abroad grab the opportunity to play UK lottery online in India, especially those that have lived in the UK for some time in the past. Although the jackpots are by no means the hugest, this lottery is definitely one of the most popular ones in India – perhaps because of the country’s historical ties to Britain.
The UK lottery draws happen weekly on Saturday and Wednesday evenings (UK time). Players need to pick six numbers between 1 and 49 which are matched to those numbers selected in a televised draw on those evenings.
In February 2012, the USA Megamillions jackpot topped a record US$600 million mark. With its twice weekly draws and very frequent lottery jackpot rollovers, it’s no wonder that so many people play US lottery from India. These huge jackpots are tough to pass up an opportunity to guess some hopefully lucky numbers – after all, you have to be in it to win it and buying one lottery ticket is all it could take for you.
To play the US MegaMillions lottery online, you need to pick five numbers from 1 to 56 and one Powerball between 1 and 46. With the US Powerball lottery, you need to pick 5 numbers between 1 and 59, and a single powerball ranging between 1 and 39.
Moving on from the USA lotteries to the biggest European ones, a popular option for lotto participants in India is the Italian SuperEna lottery. For those of you who spend your days wondering what it would be like to own a romantic castle near Lake Como, the recent SuperEna rollover results will be quite enticing. The Italian lottery is one of the most lucrative European lotteries and with 6 numbers to choose between 1 and 90 numbers, you can bet that it rolls over very frequently.
The EuroMillions lottery which is so popular in the UK is another heavyweight player in the big-stakes lottery game. For Euromillions you have to choose 5 numbers between 1 and 50, and then two lucky numbers between 1 and 9. So fewer numbers to choose from and more chances to win. This lottery does come with a slightly higher price tag though. The Spanish El Gordo lottery which also had a massive Christmas lottery jackpot last year requires you to select 5 numbers between 1 and 54 and then a single number between 0 and 9.
Continuing with the European lotteries for the moment, another slightly more expensive one that gives good wins is the French Lotto. Players on FranceLoto need to select 5 numbers between 1 and 49 and one additional number between 1 and 10 to play.
Away from Europe and into the Southern Hemisphere, the Australian PowerBall and OzLotto are two of the most popular Asia-Pac lotteries. They are especially popular in Singapore, Malaysia and Indonesia (and of course Australia and New Zealand!). The OzLotto is quite unusual in that players need to select 7 numbers (and no powerball) between 1 and 45 so the chances of getting more than one number in the draw is much higher than in other lotteries. The Australian Powerball (aka OzPowerball) has the more traditional format of 5 numbers between 1 and 45, and then 1 powerball between 1 and 45.
