The Oz Lotto Story
The Oz Lotto lottery was introduced in 1994 and at the time it was the only Australian lottery that could be played nationally. In 2005, lottery officials changed the rules for winning the jackpot. Now players have to match seven balls (and not six) to take home the grand prize. This will be familiar to those of you who play Powerball online.
With no rollover cap, the Oz Lotto jackpot will increase every week until a winner appears. Oz Lotto draws take place every Tuesday at 8:30 pm Australian Eastern Daylight Time.
