The Australian Lottery


There are five lottery corporations that cover Australia as a whole. They share prize pools for bigger jackpot prizes across the main games - these being TattsLotto, Oz Lotto and the Australian Powerball.

But each corporation also runs games available to that region only too.

Australians love their lottery games in general, with around 6.8 million Aussies playing regularly - almost a third of the population.

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 (but can go even higher). When there are no Division 1 winners it 'jackpots' (or 'rolls over') to the next draw.

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'. It costs $1.30 per play.

TattsLotto (or Saturday Lotto)

TattsLotto is a weekly Saturday night draw offering a guaranteed jackpot of $4 Million - with occasional 'Superdraw' events providing jackpots up to $20 Million. (Note: this is also basically the same game as the 'Gold Lotto' played in Queensland)

There are 45 balls, numbered 1 to 45, from which 8 selections are drawn. The first six are 'winning numbers', and the next two 'supplementary numbers'. An Australian Lottery player picks 6 numbers, and winning combinations are split over 6 'divisions':

Australian Powerball

The Powerball is the most popular Australian Lottery game, not surprisingly given the large prize pool available. There is a guaranteed Division One prize pool of at least $3 Million every Thursday night, but jackpots can reach as high as $50 Million.

The draw consists of 35 balls numbered 1 to 35, from which 7 are selected. A 7th ball is then drawn from a separate machine with a separate selection of balls numbered 1 to 20. Players pick 7 numbers, plus a further number for the Powerball.

2018 Powerball Changes

The game structure was changed in April 2018. Previously players picked 6 numbers from 40 instead of 7 from 35. This actually made the game significantly harder to win the jackpot, as the odds lengthened from 1 in 76.7 million to 1 in 134 million.

Powerball Prizes & Odds

Prizes are awarded according to 9 'divisions':
