Lottery games have been popular in Australia since the 1970s, with many of these games still played today, giving Australians multiple opportunities to win daily cash prizes.
The most prominent lottery operator in Australia is the Tatts Group, which offers a variety of lottery games under its The Lott banner. Residents across all Australian states can take part in these national lottery games, but a separate lottery operator called LotteryWest administers draws for a number of games that are exclusively available in Western Australia.
First played in 1979, this game was originally called Monday Lotto until the Wednesday draw was added in 1984. From 1989 and 1996, draw days changed to Monday and Thursday in line with the launch of Powerball Lotto.
Monday and Wednesday Lotto has a fixed jackpot of AU$ 1 million and has no rollovers, with occasional Monday superdraws having an enhanced jackpot of AU$ 5 million.
Oz Lotto became Australia’s first national lottery game in 1994, with all lottery games being operated at state level before. The launch of this separate national lottery means that Australians now have even more opportunities to win higher sums.
Oz Lotto has a jackpot of at least AU$ 2 million, and because there are no rollover or jackpot caps, prizes can grow much larger.
Originally launched in 1996, Powerball Lotto is one of Australia’s newest lotteries. Today, it is Australia’s most popular lottery game.
The basic jackpot is at least AU$ 3 million, but regularly grows higher due to the long winning odds. When the jackpot reaches AU$ 10 million, each subsequent rollover adds a further AU$ 10 million to the prize!
Saturday Lotto, known in some locations as Tattslotto, has been around since 1972 and is Australia’s oldest lottery game. Before it became a national lottery game in 2013, Saturday Lotto was only available to residents of Victoria.
Draws take place on Saturday, with a minimum jackpot of AU$ 4 million being available. If the jackpot fails to be won after four rollovers, the prize rolls down to secondary prize tiers.
Additional Megadraw events take place six times a year for a chance to win an AU$ 20 million jackpot, plus an additional Christmas superdraw with a top prize of AU$ 30 million.
Cash 3 is a daily draw game exclusively available in Western Australia.
Launched in 1998, Cash 3 has a top prize of up to AU$ 500.00, depending on the type of ticket purchased.
Set for Life is Australia’s only national lottery game that pays out prizes annually rather than as single lump sums. Launched in 2015, Australians have the chance to win AU$ 20,000 per month ‘for life’, which actually equates to 20 years for a total payout of AU$ 4.8 million.
Set for Life is a daily draw and is one of Australia’s best-value games.
Super 66 is a unique lottery game that can be played as a standalone game or as a supplementary game to Tattslotto. New Zealand residents can enter this draw as well, but the game is not available, however, to residents of New South Wales or the Australian Capital Territory!
Super 66 draws are held every Saturday and have a minimum jackpot of AU$ 16,666.
Lotto Strike is an add-on game available in New South Wales and the Australian Capital Territory as an alternative to Super 66, with the first four numbers of the draw counting as the Lotto Strike result.
The AU$ 100,000 jackpot can roll over until it reaches a cap of AU$ 2 million!

The length of time to claim prizes differs from region to region.
The following claim limits apply in each state:
Smaller prizes can be claimed directly from retailers, whereas more significant amounts need to be claimed from the lottery operator. For online players, winnings are usually paid directly into a registered online account, subject to verification checks for more substantial wins. When playing from abroad, the applicable lottery agent shall be responsible for the payment of prizes.
Both Tatts Group and Lotterywest commit a significant portion of their revenue to good causes within their respective communities. Combined contributions from both operators frequently exceed AU$1 billion per year, with funding going to initiatives such as hospitals, schools and local sports teams.
