Oz Lotto Overview

Launched in February 1994, OZ Lotto is responsible for some of the biggest jackpots in Australian lottery history.

At first, this game had the same format as the Saturday Lotto, meaning players had to choose six numbers from a possible 45. However, in October 2005, a seventh number was added to the draw, increasing the odds against winning the jackpot.

In May 2022, the format of the game was updated again and two extra numbers were added so that players could pick seven numbers from 47 available. A third supplementary number was also added, improving the overall odds of winning a prize but lowering those of winning the jackpot. The minimum jackpot amount was increased from $2 million to $3 million.

In order to enter, participants must choose seven numbers between 1 and 47 and tickets cost $1.50. Players must match at least three main numbers and one supplementary number to win a prize.

The fifth place in this top is occupied by three separate wins which happened in different years. The March 2019 draw brought the Division 1 prize to two winners. The winner from Victoria won two thirds of the $70 million prize as he bought two tickets by mistake. The other share of the jackpot was won by a participant from Hobart.


On 7 August 2018, the jackpot was won by two tickets. One of the lucky entries belonged to a family syndicate from north-east Victoria while the other one was a man in his 50s from Lithgow in New South Wales.


The lucky ticket which matched all the winning numbers in the 17 December 2013 draw belonged to a syndicate of friends from the Gold Coast in Queensland. The all-women group had just had lunch together and decided to use the loose change in order to buy a 12-game Quick Pick from the Golden News and Casket Kiosk in Runaway Bay.

How to Play Oz Lotto

If you want to enter OZ Lotto, you must choose seven numbers between 1 and 47. Three other supplementary numbers are drawn from the remaining pool of 40 balls. Besides the Standard Entry, also known as a ‘Marked’ entry in some territories, there are three other ways in which you can play OZ Lotto. You can check them out below and pick which one you think is best for you:

Quick Pick/Slikpik

Known as a SlikPik in Western Australia, the Quick Pick option takes off the pressure and randomly generates a set of numbers, ready for you to use. Simply select how many panels you want to play and you will get that many entries.

Pick entry

If you want to choose a Pick 6 entry, all you need to do is choose six numbers and mark the ‘System/Pick’ box. These six numbers will be accompanied by the remaining numbers, giving you a total of 41 games and guaranteeing that you will match at least one number. Alternatively, you can select the Pick 5 entry which works similarly, the only difference being that you pick five numbers and then two other numbers will be required to complete your line. If you choose a Pick 5 entry, you would play 861 games in total.

System entry

With a System entry, you must choose between eight and 20 numbers, then play every seven-number combination with your chosen range as a separate entry. Don’t forget to mark the ‘System/Pick’ box on your payslip and keep in mind that the cost increases the more numbers you pick.
