Someone from Nigeria could become ₦159 billion richer this friday night


The American Mega Millions lottery currently offers the biggest jackpot prize in the world: $410 million USD (₦159 million). That huge amount has captured the attention of lottery fans everywhere and amazingly, the winner of this enormous prize could be someone from Nigeria.

“There’s no need to travel to the United States to take a chance on winning this incredible jackpot prize,” states Adrian Cooremans, spokesman for “We are the world’s leading online lottery ticket purchasing service and we give people from across the globe the opportunity to play the Mega Millions lottery. Our services are now available to customers from Nigeria as well.”

You can play Mega Millions online without leaving Nigeria and that amazing jackpot prize could be just a few clicks away. Here’s how it’s done.

  1. Sign up at
  2. Select the Mega Millions lottery from over 50 lotteries from around the globe available on the site.
  3. Fill out your ticket with your favourite numbers in the same manner as if you were buying a lottery ticket in person.
  4. Indicate how many lines you want to play or choose to play with a lottery syndicate to increase your chances of winning.
  5. Confirm your ticket purchase and you’re eligible to win prizes in the upcoming draw.

“It works like this,” Cooremans explains. “TheLotter’s local agents in the US will buy tickets on your behalf. In return, the website charges a transaction fee and you will get a scan of your tickets before the draw. When you win a prize, it’s entirely yours as commissions aren’t taken from winning tickets.”

By purchasing their tickets online at, more than 5.5 million lucky players from all over the world have won $100 million in prizes without setting foot in the US!

In August 2015, a resident of Baghdad won a $6.4 million USD jackpot playing the Oregon Megabucks lottery. He had purchased his winning ticket online at, a lottery ticket messenger service. The Iraqi’s win was so unique that it was reported in the New York Times, the Daily Mail, NBC, CNN, and the Associated Press. All publications noted that it is perfectly legal for foreigners to win American lottery prizes by purchasing official tickets online at TheLotter.

“You can play the biggest lottery draws in the world, no matter where you are in the world, by purchasing official lottery tickets online,” explained Austin Weaver. “Once you have filled out your entry form, we purchase an official ticket on your behalf in the United States. Your ticket is scanned and uploaded to your account and then secured in a safe so there’s no chance of it getting lost. If you are lucky enough to win a prize, you will receive a notification via SMS or email with the good news. Winnings are transferred to your account commission free.”

It turns out that the Iraqi’s surprising win was not the only time a foreigner won a huge American lottery prize by using the services of TheLotter. A retired woman from Panama won a $30 million jackpot playing the Florida Lotto in July 2017. “Over the years, we’ve paid out more than $90 million in prizes to over 4.5 million winners from across the globe,” Weaver said.

The jackpot prize offered by Mega Millions is once again on the rise. This time around, the winner of that amazing $410 Million prize might not even be a resident of the United States.
