With the OZ Lotto Division 1 jackpot reaching an Australian record of $100 million, now would be a good time to get a free entry! The draw is on Tuesday, the same day as the Melbourne Cup, which has led organisers to label it the “jackpot that stops a nation.” The advertised jackpot value of $100 million is just below Australia’s largest ever lotto win – when $106,549,984.76 was shared between two winners in 2009 – however that draw had only been guaranteed at $90 million.
OZLotteries.com (an official lottery ticket retailer since 1984) is offering 1 free game for the latest OZ Lotto draw for new members. No purchase is necessary. The next OZ Lottery is drawn on Tuesday, November 6th at 8:30 PM AEDT. The cut-off time for getting a free ticket, I’m presuming, is 7:30 PM AEDT.

For those of you who have never played OZ Lotto, it is just like the Saturday Lotto, except there are seven numbers plus two supplementary numbers drawn instead of six numbers and two supplementary numbers. The chance of winning first division is incredibly low, hence why the jackpot rises each week. The chance of winning a minor prize is actually higher with the OZ Lotto than it is with the Saturday Lottery. Below are the stats:
Note that the chance of winning a 7th division prize is 87:1, while the odds of winning a 6th division prize in the Saturday Lotto is 144:1.
Best of luck, and let us know if you manage to beat the 45,379,620:1 odds!
