Oz Lotto Lets Play Brochurehow to play Oz Lotto

Oz Lotto is Australian for BIG jackpots guaranteeing a minimum division one prize pool of $2 million every Tuesday and can jackpot to $50 million or more!

Every Tuesday night, 9 balls are drawn at random from forty five balls numbered 1 to 45. The first seven balls drawn are the “winning numbers” and the last two numbers are the “supplementary numbers” 

To win first division you need to match 7 numbers in a single game with the 7 winning numbers from the draw.

Oz Lotto is drawn each Tuesday night and is broadcast at approximately 8:40pm on Channel Seven in New South Wales, and affiliated regional stations (check your local TV guide).

A System Entry gives you the option to play more numbers per game for a greater chance to win. For example, to win Division 1 in Oz Lotto, you need all seven winning numbers. To increase your chances of winning, you could play a System 9 which means you get to choose nine numbers for that game rather than the usual seven which is equivalent to 36 standard games. Just follow these simple steps:

  1. Grab an Oz Lotto coupon at your local NSW Lotteries Outlet or select your numbers when you buy Oz Lotto online
  2. Mark 8 - 20 numbers in each game panel (e.g mark 9 numbers for a System 9 Entry etc)
  3. Play 1 - 50* games on a QuickPick coupon
  4. Play 1 - 18 games on a marked coupon
  5. Mark the "System/Pick" check box on your coupon or select this option when you buy Oz Lotto online

* Oz Lotto System 8 QuickPick Entries: minimum 2 game panels.

Play a Pick entry and you can guarantee yourself either one or two of the winning numbers required to win that game (not available for Lucky or Strike Lotto). You can play a Pick entry with your favourite numbers on a marked coupon or as a QuickPick.

For example, if you play a Pick 5 Entry for Oz Lotto, you are guaranteed two out of the seven winning numbers, and you only have to pick the remaining five winning numbers in that game panel.

  1. Grab an Oz Lotto coupon at your local NSW Lotteries Outlet or select your numbers when you buy Oz Lotto online
  2. For a Pick 5 entry - mark 5 numbers in each game panel (gives you 2 out of the 7 winning numbers)
  3. For a Pick 6 entry - mark 6 numbers in each game panel (gives you 1 out of the 7 winning numbers)
  4. Play 1 - 50 games on a QuickPick coupon
  5. Play 1 - 18 game on a marked coupon
  6. Mark the "System/Pick" check box on your coupon or select this option when you buy Oz Lotto online
