To play Oz Lotto and have a chance of winning the jackpot, you’ll have to:
To win the jackpot, you need to match the 7 numbers for the particular draw. The extra numbers can increase the 2nd, 4th and 7th prize tiers.
Oz Lotto gives you seven opportunities to win an award. Here are the required numbers and the amount you can win for such a match.
|Numbers Matched||Estimated Prize (AUD)|
|7 numbers||Jackpot (minimum $2 million)|
|6 numbers + 1 extra||$55,617|
|5 numbers + 1 extra||$350|
|3 numbers + 1 extra||$14.35|
Since each tier (apart from the jackpot) is a percentage of the overall prize funds, the amount may vary from week to week. It will also depend on the number of winners for the particular tier.
All of the prizes, including the jackpot, are paid in the form of a tax-free lump sum.
The prize claim periods vary from six months to three years, depending on local jurisdiction. All winners should check with an official representative to make sure the prize is claimed within the right time period.
If there’s no jackpot winner for the particular draw, the sum will roll over to the next draw. There’s no cap on the jackpot rollover.
