Oz Lotto is operated by Tatts Group, which is a subsidiary of the Australian Gambling Commission and distributes to all Australian states, except Western Australia, in which the operator of OZ Lotto is Lotterywest.
The OZ Lotto is one of the most important lotteries in Australia along with the PowerBall AU, since both are the ones that give away the biggest prizes.
From the origin of this lottery, it was necessary to guess 6 of the 45 numbers proposed to obtain the first category prize, but as of October 18, 2005, a modification was introduced varying from 6 to 7 the numbers needed to obtain the highest award, creating a new category.
OZ Lotto is a lottery that is easy to understand and play. The player Simply must choose 7 numbers from among 45 possible, corresponding to balls numbered from 1 to 45 inclusive.
The minimum age to buy lottery products is 18 in all states, except in Western Australia, where the age was reduced to 16.
At the time of drawing the OZ Lotto, 7 balls are extracted from the drum. These seven numbered balls will form the winning combination.
Subsequently two more balls are extracted, which are called “complementary” and that do not affect the winning combination of the 7 numbers, but they are used to qualify for the prize category of 6, 5 and 3 hits.
While the complementary balls (at least one of them) must accompany the success of 6 numbers to create the second prize category, and in the case of 5 hits for the fourth category of awards, in the case of three hits, it is mandatory character to match at least one of the two complementary balls to obtain a 7th category prize.
The OZ Lotto has a guaranteed minimum jackpot of AUD $ 2,000,000 that rollover without limit of times. Having such a high guaranteed prize makes it a very interesting lottery to play.
OZ Lotto holds to date the largest jackpot of Australian lotteries. On 6th November of 2012, 4 lucky ones shared a millionaire jackpot of AUD $ 111,972,151.04.
