If Monday Lotto didn’t work out for you, there is always Wednesday Lotto to give it another shot! Wednesday Lotto was launched to accompany the popular Monday Lotto. Therefore, the rules here are the same.
Taking place every Wednesday at 22:30 AEST, Wednesday Lotto offers a First Division prize of AU$1 million for the winner who matches all six main numbers. Whether there is one main prize winner or four of them - each gets their share of AU$1 million. If there are over 4 winners, a total of AU$4 million is divided.
Apart from the grand prize of AU$1 million, there are five more different prize tiers you could win, with the lowest Division prize requiring to match just 1 or 2 main numbers plus 2 supplementary numbers. The odds of winning the First Division prize are 1 in 8,145,060. However, the chances of winning other prize tiers are bigger.
Just like with Monday Lotto, you have to purchase either a Marked entry ticket where you select six random numbers yourself or a QuickPick ticket where the numbers are already chosen for you. Then, each Wednesday at 22:30 AEST, eight winning numbers are drawn from a pool of number 1 to 45, with the last two being supplementary. If your six main numbers match with the ones drawn - you win the First Division prize of AU$1 million. The supplementary numbers are used to win the second, fifth, and sixth division prizes. So, if you didn’t match the main six numbers drawn, you still have the chance of winning lower division prizes.
To play a Wednesday lotto you need to get your ticket online or in authorised retail outlets. Ticket prices here depend on a way you want to play. If you want to play with the specific numbers, then create your own ticket, and prices are from $2.40 for four games. If you do not have a time for that, grab a QuickPick ticket, where numbers are already generated for you. Ticket prices are from $3.65 for six games.
