Tuesday Oz Lotto Guide
The Tuesday Oz Lotto Guide is one of the many different Lotto games available in Australia. This Tuesday Oz Lotto Guide covers the basic aspects of the game which are essential in maximizing the bets to get the jackpot prize.
As with other Lotto games, the Tuesday Oz Lotto Guide lets players choose from 45 numbers except that in this game, 7 digits can be selected as compared to the normal 6. The top prize for this game has a minimum of $1 million and draws are held every Tuesday night. To determine the winners, nine balls are randomly drawn. The first seven numbers are called winning numbers and getting all of them successfully lands the jackpot or Division 1 prize. The other two numbers are called supplementary numbers and are combined with the main numbers to get the winners for Divisions 2 - 7. There are many ways to enter the Lotto. Players can use the Standard entry where they select 7 numbers to mark on their Tuesday Oz Lotto card. They can also let a computer randomly select digits for them via the Autopick option. To increase the chance of winning, the game allows System entries wherein more than 7 numbers can be selected for the draw. The costs rise significantly as more and more numbers are chosen since the probability for winning the draw becomes much higher. Advanced entries are allowed for people who wish to enter numbers for future draw weeks. This is great for those who do not wish to keep coming back weekly to the Lotto agent to place their bets. The Tuesday Oz Lotto Guide can be played online or by using a coupon at an authorized Lottery Outlet.

Oz Lotto was introduced way back in 1994. Despite being played on a different day, Oz Lotto originally played the same as Saturday Lotto where you choose six numbers out of 45. That all changed on October 18, 2005 because a seventh number was added to the draw, increasing the odds of winning everything. Because of this, the Oz Lotto brands emphasised the seventh number. For instance, Tattersalls has Super 7 and Golden Casket has Oz 7. While Oz Lotto requires seven numbers to be chosen, its minimum prize level remains at three winning numbers and either supplementary number.
Oz Lotto holds the record for handing out the largest lotto jackpot prize. The amount is an astonishing AUD106,549,984.76, which was won and shared by two winners from South Australia and Queensland on June 30, 2007.
