Monday Lotto is a nationwide syndicated lotto, also known as Gold Lotto in Queensland and X Lotto in South Australia. Introduced in New South Wales in 1979, the game expanded to all Australian states by 2013, and does not feature the rolling jackpot of Oz Lotto or Powerball.
Monday Lotto has 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.
The chance of winning a Division 1 prize in Monday Gold Lotto is 1 in 8,145,060. The chance of winning any division prize with a single game is 1 in 144.
These odds improve to 1 in 12 when 12 games are played.

Numbers are drawn from a barrel containing 45 balls, numbered 1 – 45. The first 6 balls drawn from the barrel are the main numbers and the final 2 balls drawn are the supplementary numbers. The supplementary balls are used to determine prizes in Divisions 2, 5 and 6.

Monday Lotto Games
A Monday Lotto standard game refers to each standard line of numbers you select for each lotto game. Each standard game of 6 numbers offers you a chance of winning one prize. You can select your own numbers or a QuickPick (auto-fill) for each game.
A system allows you to play more numbers than a standard entry providing you with an entry covering every combination of the numbers you have chosen. This type of entry allows players to increase their chances of winning a prize by playing a wider range of number combinations.
A Super Combo entry lets you play more number combinations than a standard game entry, but does not cover all possible number combinations of a selected set of numbers like a System entry does.
Syndicates give you more chances to win by covering a greater combination of numbers and 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 prize will be divided equally among all of the members of the syndicate.
