We’ve created a handy guide with everything you need to know about playing Wednesday Lotto. Read on and learn how to increase your chances of becoming a millionaire every week!
What is Wednesday Lotto?
Wednesday Lotto (also known as Gold Lotto in Queensland and X Lotto in South Australia) is a nationwide lottery game with a guaranteed minimum Division 1 prize pool of $1 million available for up to 4 winners each week! The draw takes place every week, on a Wednesday (as you may have guessed).
How do I play Wednesday Lotto?
The first step is to decide which game to play on your ticket – a Standard, System, Syndicate or Super Combo game. A Standard game is the easiest way to play and gives you 6 numbers per game.
Once you have decided which game to play, you can select your own numbers or play a QuickPick. A QuickPick is where our system randomly generates the numbers for you.
Above all, you get to decide how often you’d like to play. Play for a few draws, just once, or every week – it’s up to you! You can read more about the benefits of AutoPlay and how to set one up in our article here.
Where do I buy Wednesday Lotto?
You can purchase a ticket from the Oz Lotteries website or from our free Oz Lotteries app. Play at home or on the go, anytime, anywhere. It costs just $2.80 to play the minimum 4 games of Wednesday Lotto with Oz Lotteries. That’s 4 chances to win!
How do I win Wednesday Lotto?
Every Wednesday, six main numbers and two supplementary numbers are randomly selected from a pool of 45 balls, with numbers 1 to 45. The first six balls drawn are the winning numbers. The final two balls are the supplementary numbers.
You need to match all six of your numbers to the six winning numbers of the draw to win the top prize (Division 1). To win the lowest Division prize (6) you need to match at least 1 of your numbers plus 2 supplementary numbers to the winning numbers. The winning combinations for each division are:
|Division 1||6 winning numbers|
|Division 2||5 winning numbers + 1 supplementary number|
|Division 3||5 winning numbers|
|Division 4||4 winning numbers|
|Division 5||3 winning numbers + 1 supplementary number|
|Division 6||1 or 2 winning numbers + 2 supplementary numbers|
