OZ Lotto – Player’s Guide
OZ Lotto is the lottery game played in Australia on Tuesday evenings. The draws are run at approximately 8:30pm AEST with entries closing at 6:30om AEST.
To play OZ Lotto, a customer must select seven numbers from a choice of 45 numbers on the OZ Lotto game panel. The minimum number of games that can be played on a ticket for Ozlotto is 1, which gives the customer one chance to win the Ozlotto prize.
There are several ways to play the OZ Lotto game, let’s have a look at the first way to play OZ Lotto called a Quickpick. Quickpicks are available to customers at any land based or accredited online lottery agent and allow the customer to have a computer randomly select 7 numbers for each game they choose to play.
The next way to play OZ Lotto is a marked coupon. The marked coupon offers the customer the opportunity to select their own numbers for each game they would like to enter into the Ozlotto draw. The customer is able to select 7 numbers out of the possible 45 for each game.
Syndicates are a way that a group of customers may participate and enter an OZ Lotto entry by pooling together their funds to pay for the entry and the splitting the prize pool should they be lucky enough to win the draw.
Another popular way to play OZ Lotto is with a “with the field” entry. With the Field allows the customer to select 5 or 6 numbers (instead of the standard 7) from 45 for each game they enter. The customer is then guaranteed the remaining 1 or 2 numbers to form a winning combination. Of the 7 winning numbers drawn for the OZ Lotto game the customer enters, they will only need to actually have correctly chosen 5 or 6 of them to win.
OZ Lotto also offers advance and multi-week entries which allow a customer to enter OZ Lotto draws up to 10 weeks in advance with either their regular numbers or via a quickpick.
