Oz Lotto Jackpot
The Oz Lotto Jackpot currently sits at A$30M.
Oz Lotto draws take place on Tuedays at 8:30pm AEST, complementing Monday & Wednesday Lotto (drawn Monday and Wednesday), the Powerball (drawn on Thursday) and Saturday Lotto (drawn on Saturday).
The largest ever recorded Oz Lotto Jackpot was a staggering A$112M. The minimum Oz Lotto Jackpot is $2M.
7 main numbers and 2 supplementary numbers are drawn from a single barrel containing 45 balls. The Jackpot is won by correctly selecting the 7 main numbers. The odds of winning the Jackpot sit at 1 in 45,379,620, making it the second hardest Jackpot to win after the Powerball (1 in 134,490,400), but above Monday & Wendesday Lotto and Saturday Lotto (1 in 8,145,060).
Originally, only 6 main numbers were drawn (same as Monday & Wednesday Lotto and Saturday Lotto), but starting 18 October 2005 an additional main number was drawn, thereby lowering the odds of hitting the Jackpot and increasing the size of the Jackpots.
Each Division has a percentage of the total prize pool allocated, and is shared amongst all winners of the division.
|Division||Match||Odds (1 in..)||Pool Distribution|
|2||6 Numbers + 1 Supp||3,241,401||1.7%|
|4||5 Numbers + 1 Supp||29,602||1.8%|
|7||3 Numbers + 1 Supp||87||26.9%|
