Select 7 numbers out of 45. That’s it! No muss, no fuss. Each Tuesday, 9 balls are drawn at random: The first 7 balls are the winning numbers, and the last 2 balls (called “Complementary”) are the supplementary numbers that are used to determine prizes in Divisions 2, 4, and 7.
It all boils down to 1 weekly draw, which is held every Tuesday. And once the draw is finished, you’re free to scoop your prize money.

The Oz Lotto syndicate allows a group of players to buy big amount of tickets together, increasing their odds for a win. When joining, you get to choose how many shares you want. The more shares you purchase - the bigger your portion of the prize if the ticket wins.
As with many lotteries around the world, the Oz Lotto 1st Division prize tier depends on the number of tickets that have been sold. However, the minimum jackpot will never be lower than AUD$1 million (€613,660) - guaranteed!
If there is no 1st Division winner - the jackpot will be rolled over to the next draw. There are no caps or limits to the number of times the jackpot can roll. This means that multi-million dollar jackpots are often created by the Oz Lotto. Excited yet?
The Division 1 prize pool is shared amongst the total number of jackpot winners. But if you’re the only winner - you get to take the entire amount home.
