How to play Oz Lotto?
A single game of Oz Lotto requires one to choose 7 numbers from 1 to 45. Every Tuesday, 9 balls are randomly drawn from 45 balls which are numbered from 1 to 45. The first 7 balls are the winning numbers whereas the last 2 balls are considered the supplementary numbers. These supplementary numbers are used to determine prizes in Divisions 2, 4 and 7.
The cost of each standard game is $2.30.All the Oz Lotto entries close at 7:25 pm AEST/8:25 pm AEDT on Tuesdays. Although the draw now requires seven numbers to be selected, the minimum prize level comprising 3 winning numbers and 1 of the supplementary numbers has remained unchanged, which leads to seven prize divisions given as follows:
