Hospitals, charities and causes all seem to be jumping on the lottery band wagon. The Deaf Lottery out of Australia is the latest that we took a look at. Their top prize can come in a package of high end cars, a new home, recreational vehicles (motorhomes through to yachts), farm machinery, trucks and gold bullion. Yup, that would one would catch your eye. One of the other things you do need to know is anyone can play here – it’s open to foreigners. Let’s go take a look.
Games at Deaflottery.com.au
There are seven draws/lotteries a year with a threshold of 1,350,000 tickets sold each draw. Players are encouraged to buy subscriptions with a variety of extra prizes depending on how many tickets you purchase. The earlier you get in, the more prize opportunities there are.
What Do You Win at Deaflottery?
1st prize options are valued at $525,000. Players can choose between different packages of Investment & Lifestyle, Mortgage Buster, Getaway Lifestyle or Design Your Own Lifestyle. This includes a combo of gold bullion, cash, a credit for a deposit to Metricon Homes, cars and caravans – or you can design your own prize with cash and gold bullion. Winning a $240,000 Aston Martin Vantage plus the gold bullion did catch my eye. Order consecutive tickets between the value of $10 to $200 for a lottery and if you win the 1st prize, you also win an additional “book” prize of gold bullion starting at $5,000 up to $55,000. There are 99 other prizes including Eftpos Gift Cards to the value of $5000 (2nd prize), $3,000 (3rd prize), $2000 (4th & 5th prize), $1000 (6th to 10th prize) and $200 (11th to 100th prize).
What Other Extras?
If you are entering to play this game for the first time, there is a “Full-Time Bonus Draw” to win one of five gift cards or travel vouchers of AUD 2,000.

Who Can Play at The Deaf Lottery Australia?
Playing and winning is open to anyone – anywhere. You can purchase tickets by telephone, online, by snail mail and fax (do people really still use them). Just keep in mind that part of the prize is a credit for a deposit on a home in Australia. I guess with the cash and gold bullion, that wouldn’t be too hard to do. Getting in touch with these folks is easy through the same mechanisms to buy tickets though remember they are available AEST business hours of 9:00 am to 7:30 pm.
