How to play
Wednesday lotto is the same, like Saturday lotto in Australia. For each draw, players must choose six numbers from 45. These are primary numbers. Players can also choose two additional numbers, which give certain awards.
The jackpot is won only then, when a player matches all six main numbers. There are also quite impressive rewards for getting five main numbers plus one extra correct or five main numbers.
Players can choose their own numbers or buy a ticket with randomly selected numbers - this is an option, which allows you to test your intuition or trust the case.
Prize levels, winning distributions and odds
That sounds good, but let's get to the basics - how much can you win? Lotto is held on Wednesdays with a guaranteed jackpot of one million dollars. The chances of winning big money are one of 8,155 million.
Yes, now you can tell yourself, that this jackpot is pretty low. You're right, but it is not so! While a regular jackpot is not something, what can cause excitement, then there are special events and mega-voices. Watch them closely! The jackpot during special events can reach 20 million Australian dollars and more!
The odds of getting five correct primary numbers plus one extra is one to 678 755. The chances of getting five correct numbers is one to 36 689, four winning numbers - one to 733 and three winning numbers plus one or two additional - one to 297.
Odds of winning odds
1 Prize 6 = 1: 8,145,060
2 Prize 5 + 1= 1: 678 755
3 Prize 5 = 1: 36 689
4 Prize 4 = 1: 733
5 Prize 3 + 1= 1: 297
6 Prize 2 + 2= 1: 144
7 Prize 1 + 2= 1: 144
Now let's take these chances and turn them into real reward values.. If we take the last game, then of all the winners, nobody was able to get all six primary numbers. There were nine lucky ones, matching five numbers and one additional, each of which took home 6 806 Australian dollars. People, which had five correct numbers, got 538 dollars and those, who had four correct numbers, got 27,90 dollar each.
Obviously, that the amounts are not so impressive, like those, what some other international lotteries have to offer. Nonetheless, chances are very good, and money, which you received, tax-free. The amount can also be requested as a lump sum. If you are an international player, it would be nice to consult a lawyer and find out, will you pay income taxes in your country.
