Lottery Info…

Oz Lotto is one of Australia’s most popular lotteries and was first introduced in February 1994. The Oz Lotto draws take place once a week on Tuesday nights at 8.30pm, AEST. The jackpot is guaranteed to start at AUD$2 million.

On Tuesday 6th November, 2012, a record number of tickets were purchased, resulting in the first tier prize jackpot to be boosted from AUD$100 million to a phenomenal AUD$111.97 million! The 4 joint winning tickets came from 4 different states across the land and resulted in each tier one prize winner receiving AUD$27.99 million!


Buying Tickets…

Buying tickets online makes global lotteries such as the Oz Lotto both accessible and easy to play. Ticket agents buy lottery tickets on the player’s behalf and winnings are paid out quickly and efficiently.


How it Works…

Players must pick 9 balls from 1 to 45. The first seven balls which are drawn from the drum are the ‘winning numbers’ and the final two balls drawn are the ‘supplementary numbers’. There are 7 prize tiers in total and the ‘supplementary numbers’ are used to determine prizes in 2, 4 and 7. The odds of winning something in the Oz Lotto are one in 87.

Prize 1: 7 numbers
Prize 2: 6 numbers + either supplementary number
Prize 3: 6 numbers
Prize 4: 5 numbers + either supplementary number
Prize 5: 5 numbers
Prize 6: 4 numbers
Prize 7: 3 numbers + either supplementary number
