How to play X Lotto

X Lotto has 45 balls numbered 1 to 45 from which eight balls are randomly selected in the draw. The first six balls drawn are the ‘winning numbers’ and the last two balls drawn are the ‘supplementary numbers’. The aim of X Lotto is to match as many numbers drawn from the barrel as possible with the numbers in a single game on your entry.

Mark an X Lotto coupon

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

  1. Grab an X Lotto coupon at your local SA Lotteries Outlet or select your numbers when you buy X Lotto online
  2. Mark 6 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 X Lotto, you need all six 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 six, giving you 84 equivalent games. Just follow these simple steps:

  1. Grab a X Lotto coupon at your local SA Lotteries Outlet or select your numbers when you buy X Lotto online
  2. Mark 7 - 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 Lotto online

* Saturday, Monday & Wednesday Lotto / The Pools System 7 QuickPick Entries: minimum 2 game panels. NB: Maximum number of game panels will vary between 1-50 for high level System Entries. Please call us on 131 868 for more information.

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 that game. 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 4 Entry for X Lotto, you are guaranteed two out of the six winning numbers, and you only have to pick the remaining four winning numbers in that game panel.

  1. Grab a X Lotto coupon at your local SA Lotteries Outlet or select your numbers when you buy X Lotto online
  2. For a Pick 4 entry - mark 4 numbers in each game panel (gives you 2 out of the 6 winning numbers)
  3. For a Pick 5 entry - mark 5 numbers in each game panel (gives you 1 out of the 6 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 X Lotto online

NB: Maximum number of game panels will vary between 1-50 for Pick Entries.

Save and play your special numbers with Favourites

You can save Favourites online when purchasing your entry, or you can save and play any marked coupon or Quick-Pick as a favourite in-store.

Easiplay Club members can save 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.

Play it Again

Present an existing entry to your Retailer, even if it's a QuickPick, and ask to ‘play it again’.

You'll receive a new entry with the same number selections for the same game for the same number of draws as your original ticket.

Note: Play it again is not available for entries purchased online. Super 66 Entries will play the same Entry Type only.

Super 66 

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