How to Play OZ Lotto
OZ Lotto requires the player to select 7 from 45 numbers (1-45) for each game played. The minimum number of games you can play in your OZ Lotto entry is 1, which gives the player one chance to win the OZ Lotto jackpot prize. Play in-store or online.
The easiest way to play OZ Lotto, is to get a Quickpick. A Quickpick is generated by the computer, which randomly selects your numbers for each game.
The player can select their own numbers for each game. This is known as a Marked Entry. Just select 7 numbers from 1 to 45, for each OZ Lotto game you would like to play.
