About Australian Lotto 6/45

Info

Bonus Draw

Australia's eminent 6/45 lottery is the oldest of its kind in Australia and still going strong—for good reason! Its impressive odds and fruitful prize-payout structure mean that Australia's weekly lottery game boasts reliability and a huge following of regular players. With so many great reasons to play, perhaps you should be one of them!

Why Play?

The Australian Lotto 6/45 packs powerful play for some of Australia's largest jackpots. It's easy to understand why, of course. With a minimum top prize of AU$4 million and Australian tax-free winnings up for grabs, it's common for many players to hit some pretty big prize amounts. And with only a 45-number pool, the jackpot odds are astounding, meaning it's 42% easier to win the top prize than in a standard 6/49 lottery.††

Format

It's so simple to win with the Australian 6/45 lottery and that's because the draw's format generates some of the most lucrative overall results available. Six numbers are drawn from a set of only 45, and two bonus numbers are also picked from the same pool. But the best part is that you only need to match the six main numbers to snag the jackpot prize, since those fun little bonus numbers are only used to augment secondary prizes—not that anyone's complaining! Draws happen every Saturday night so don't miss out.

History

With a storied history dating back to 1972, the Australian Lotto 6/45 was created to help strengthen Australia's national healthcare system, and its tradition of donating to good causes continues to this day. Lottery officials aren't afraid to shake things up either; the lotto added an extra bonus ball in 1985 to increase secondary-prize categories, all so you have more chances to take home a life-changing prize!
