The Australian Lottery

Five lottery corporations cover Australia - sharing prize pools for bigger prizes across the main games, being TattsLotto, Oz Lotto and the Australian Power Ball. Each corporation also runs games applicable to that region only.

Oz Lotto (or Oz 7 Lotto / Super 7's Oz Lotto)

OzLotto is a weekly Tuesday night draw with Jackpots often in the region of $2-$3 million, but sometimes reaching as much as $10 million.

In this game there are 45 balls, numbered 1 to 45, from which nine selections in total are made. The first seven are 'winning numbers', and the next two 'supplementary numbers'.

Prize division What you need to win: Odds of winning:
