What is Oz Lotto?

Oz Lotto is Australian for BIG jackpots. For over 22 years the Oz Lotto balls have been delivering truckloads of cash every Tuesday to lucky winners all over the country.

Oz Lotto is a game of chance where 7 winning numbers are selected from a lottery draw barrel with numbers from 1-45.

How do I play Oz Lotto?

The first step to playing Oz Lotto is deciding if you want to play a QuickPick or a Marked Entry. 

  • A QuickPick is the easiest way to play, where the number of games you play is fixed and your numbers are randomly generated for you.
  • A Marked entry lets you choose how many games you would like to play, plus you can select the numbers that are meaningful to you, and even save them as a Favourite for next time. You can play up to 18 games by marking a coupon in-store, or up to 50 games when creating your own entry online.

Once you've decided which way to play, you can add more to your Oz Lotto entry for more chances to win!

  • A System entry allows you to pick more numbers from the barrel of 1-45. You can pick from 8 to 20 numbers, giving you more chances to win multiple prize divisions.
  • A Pick entry guarantees you either 1 or 2 winning numbers.

You can also choose how long you want to play for.

  • If you're planning a holiday or won't be able to make it to your local store, you can purchase an entry into an advanced draw, or play your entry across multiple draws.
  • If you play online you can subscribe to automatically play into every draw or when the Oz Lotto jackpot reaches a certain amount.
