To win the Oz Lotto jackpot, the seven numbers you pick must be the same as the seven winning numbers. The top prize is split if there are multiple winners, and rolls over to the following draw if there are no winners. The jackpot can keep climbing for as many as 25 draws, and it regularly goes above AU$50 million.
There are also two supplementary balls selected in each draw, helping to create a total of seven prize tiers. The following table shows all the different ways to win:
|Match||Percentage of Prize Fund||Odds|
|7||Jackpot (40%)||1 in 45,379,620|
|6 + 1 supplementary number||1.7%||1 in 3,241,401|
|6||3.5%||1 in 180,078|
|5 + 1 or 2 supplementary numbers||1.8%||1 in 29,602|
|5||2.1%||1 in 3,430|
|4||24%||1 in 154|
|3 + 1 or 2 supplementary numbers||26.9%||1 in 87|
Overall odds of winning are 1 in 55. The prizes are not fixed amounts and can change from draw to draw. That’s because each prize category receives a certain percentage of the total prize fund – more players means bigger prizes.
