There are 47 numbers and you just need to choose seven, simple as that! 10 balls are drawn every Tuesday and the first 7 are the winning numbers. The last three are known as ”complementary” numbers and they decide who wins prizes in Divisions 2, 4, and 7.
So now you know what you’ll be doing every Tuesday, coming back like a boomerang to check the Oz Lotto results and tally up your winnings.

With the Oz Lotto syndicate in SA, you don’t buy single tickets. You buy shares in lots of lottery tickets with lots of other players. That means you get more chances to win for less! If one of your tickets wins then everybody shares in the prize. So, the more shares you buy the more money you take home!
As with virtually any lottery out there, the more tickets that are sold, the bigger the jackpot. But don’t worry, Aussies always look after their mates, so Division 1 winners are guaranteed a minimum payout of R33,807,772!
If there are no winners the prize is rolled over, and it can do that indefinitely. That’s what makes Oz Lotto so great. You’ll often see prize funds snowballing into the multi-millions and the excitement of eager players building grows just as much.
All jackpot winners get a share of the Division I prize pool, so if you’re the only winner you get to scoop the lot!
Oz Lotto has a grand reputation for handing out huge prizes. The current record amount came in November 2012 with a humongous AUD111,972,151.04 (over R1.18 billion). (Yeah, it’s good, but we think SA players can do better!) Almost half of all Australian adults bought a ticket and 4 fortunate winners shared this ‘absolute beaut’ of a jackpot.
The only other Oz Lotto jackpots that tipped the scales at more than AUD100,000,000 (R1.06 billion) came in 2009 when 2 winners picked up R562.61 million each — setting a record for the largest individual payouts ever.
