Much the same as Monday Lotto, Wednesday Lotto is a long-running lottery with a guaranteed minimum Division 1 prize pool of $1 million for up to four winners each week. If there are more than four Division 1 winners, the $4 million prize will be divided equally between the winners.

Like Monday Lotto, a single game of Wednesday Lotto requires you to choose 6 numbers from 1 to 45. To win Division 1 you need to match your 6 chosen numbers in a single game with the 6 winning numbers from the draw. A minimum of 1 winning number plus 2 supplementary numbers is needed to win the lowest Division.

Thursday – Powerball

Powerball is a popular nationwide lottery with a guaranteed minimum Division 1 prize pool of $3 million and a record jackpot of $80 million!

A single game of Powerball requires you to choose 6 numbers from 1 to 40 plus 1 Powerball number from 1 to 20. To win Division 1 you need to match your 6 numbers and your Powerball number with the winning numbers for that draw. A minimum of 2 winning numbers plus the Powerball number is necessary to win the lowest Division (8).

Saturday – Saturday Lotto

Saturday Lotto is a long-running lottery with an estimated Division 1 prize pool of $4 million each week, plus regular Superdraw jackpots of $20 million and over!

A single game of Saturday Lotto requires you to choose 6 numbers from 1 to 45. To win Division 1 you need to match your 6 chosen numbers in a single game with the 6 winning numbers from the draw. 1 or 2 winning numbers plus 2 supplementary numbers are necessary to win the lowest Division (6).

How To Play

You might already have a strategy for choosing your lotto numbers. It’s completely up to you – some are based on emotion, some on mathematics, and some are completely random.

  • Lucky numbers
  • Birthdays
  • Famous combinations
  • Mathematical sequences
  • Alphabetical equivalent
  • Automatic selection

Certain lotto tickets are designed to increase your chances of winning simply by making it easier for you to play more combinations of numbers. If you want to get really technical, you can also analyse statistics from historical draws to discover the current “hot” and “cold” numbers. But remember that lotto is always a game of chance – you can’t trick the system!

If you’re the kind of lotto player who plays an 18-game Quickpick every week, it might be time to branch out. Have a look at the other ticket types on offer and consider giving them a go in the next draw.

Standard

A Standard ticket refers to an entry with one or multiple lines of numbers you select for each lottery. Each standard game of 7 numbers offers you a chance of winning one prize. You also have the ability to select your own numbers or Quickpick (auto-select random numbers) each game.

Syndicate

A Syndicate ticket allows you to share system entries and prizes with other players. Syndicates allow you to cover more numbers by sharing the cost between the members of a group. Playing more games increases the chance of winning a prize. If the syndicate ticket wins a prize, the total winnings will be divided equally among all of the members of the syndicate.

System

A System ticket allows you to play more numbers that a standard entry, it gives you an entry covering every combination of the numbers you have chosen. This type of entry will increase your chances of winning by playing a bigger range of number combinations.

Super Combo

A Super Combo ticket lets you enter more number combinations than a standard game entry, but does not cover all possible number combinations of a selected set of numbers like a Systems entry would. Each type of Super Combo has a different combinatorial design that will result in a different pattern of number combinations.
