Gold Lotto offers you the chance to make your million dollar dreams come true every Saturday, Monday and Wednesday. The aim of Gold Lotto is to match as many winning numbers drawn from the barrel as possible with the numbers in a single game on your ticket.
Gold Lotto has forty-five balls numbered 1 to 45 from which eight are selected randomly during the draw. The first six balls drawn are the "winning numbers" and the last two drawn are the "supplementary numbers". You win if you match the right combination of winning and supplementary numbers with your entry.
Gold Lotto is drawn Saturday, Monday and Wednesday nights and is broadcast at approximately 8:30pm on 7TWO in Queensland, and affiliated regional stations (check your local guides). Results are available online shortly after the draw has been conducted.
Saturday Gold Lotto offers the chance to share in an estimated $4 Million Division 1 prize pool each Saturday as well as Superdraws of up to and over $20 Million throughout the year. Saturday Gold Lotto also offers you the chance to play and win $30 Million or more in the special Megadraw event held during Christmas/New Year period.
Monday and Wednesday Gold Lotto offers the chance to win a guaranteed $1 Million Division 1 prize each Monday and Wednesday for up to four winners (if there are more than four winners the total is shared).
QuickPicks are perfect if you are in a rush or playing lotto for the first time because your numbers are generated at random for you. QuickPicks are available in the following sizes:
If you've got numbers that are really special to you they could mean more to you when you play Gold Lotto. To mark your numbers on a coupon, follow these simple steps:
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 Gold 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:
* A minimum of two System 7 QuickPick entries must be played for Saturday Gold Lotto & Monday and Wednesday Gold Lotto.
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 Gold 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.
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 Top Up! The remaining game panels are randomly generated for you as standard games up to 12, 18, 24, 36 or 50 games. Just let your Retailer know how many games you want to top up to or, if you are purchasing online, you can select the 'QuickPick row' or 'QuickPick un-filled games' options to Top Up a Standard, System or Pick Entry.
