How to play Oz Lotto

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.

Grab an Oz Lotto QuickPick

Mark an Oz Lotto coupon

If you've got numbers that are really special to you they could mean more to you when you play Oz Lotto. Just follow these simple steps:

  1. Grab an Oz Lotto coupon at your local SA Lotteries outlet or select your numbers when you buy Oz Lotto online
  2. Mark 7 numbers in each game panel
  3. Play 1 - 18 game panels

System Entry - your chance to win more

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 SA 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
  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.

Pick entries – guarantee you either one or two of the winning numbers

Play a Pick entry and you can guarantee yourself either one or two of the winning numbers required to win. You can play a Pick entry with your favourite numbers on a marked coupon or as a QuickPick entry.

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 SA 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) or for a Pick 6 Entry - mark 6 numbers in each game panel (gives you 1 out of the 7 winning numbers)
  3. Play 1 - 50 games on a QuickPick
  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

Save and play your numbers again

You can save Favourites online when purchasing your entry, or you can save and play any marked coupon or QuickPick as a Favourite in store.

Easiplay Club members can store up to 50 sets of favourite games and numbers on their Easiplay Club card. Just present your card at your local SA Lotteries Outlet and ask to play a Favourite.

Super 66

Add a Super 66 for another chance to win whenever you play Saturday, Monday or Wednesday X Lotto, Oz Lotto or Powerball. You can select up to 50 games in Super 66 to accompany your entry. Learn more about Super 66.

Top Up

When playing a Standard, System or Pick Entry, if you have marked only a few game panels and want to play a bigger entry, all you have to do is ask for a TopUp! The remaining game panels are randomly generated for you as standard games up to 6, 12, 14, 18, 25, 36 or 50 games. Just let your SA Lotteries outlet know how many games you want to top up to or, if you are purchasing online, you can select your own numbers or select the ‘QuickPick Unfilled' game option to Top Up a Standard, System or Pick Entry.
