Play Oz Lotto System Entries


What is a System Entry?

A System entry allows you to choose up to 20 numbers in a single game panel. Playing a System game is like playing in lots of standard games. A standard game panel in X Lotto is 6 numbers. So when you choose more than 6 numbers in a X Lotto panel, you get many combinations of 6 numbers which can be made from the numbers you choose. The table below shows you how many equivalent games each system entry gives you.

How Systems work: X Lotto System 7 Example

Buying a X Lotto System 7 entry and selecting these numbers: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, and 7 gives you all possible six number combinations of those numbers. If you wrote out all of these possible combinations, it would look like this.

Game 1 1 2 3 4 5 6
Game 2 1 2 3 4 5 7
Game 3 1 2 3 4 6 7
Game 4 1 2 3 5 6 7
Game 5 1 2 4 5 6 7
Game 6 1 3 4 5 6 7
Game 7 2 3 4 5 6 7

Why do you win more with a System Entry?

Using the above example, if the winning numbers chosen in the draw are 1, 2, 4, 5, 17, 28 with supplementary numbers 7 and 31, then you have five of the numbers correct (4 winning numbers and 1 supplementary), which looks like this:

1 2 3 4 5 6 7

However, the prizes are calculated against all of the equivalent game combinations which means you win multiple times, because you have multiple winning combinations. Your wins look like this:

Combinations Division Won
Game 1 1 2 3 4 5 6 Division 4
Game 2 1 2 3 4 5 7 Division 4
Game 3 1 2 3 4 6 7 Division 5
Game 4 1 2 3 5 6 7 Division 5
Game 5 1 2 4 5 6 7 Division 4
Game 6 1 3 4 5 6 7 Division 5
Game 7 2 3 4 5 6 7 Division 5

Note: The above example applies to a X Lotto System 7 entry as indicated. For information on Oz Lotto, download the How to Play System Entries guide or ask your local outlet for more information.
