Check out the How to Play page for more information.

What is the current jackpot?
The Mega Jackpot currently stands at $3.4 Million.
How do I win a prize?
To win a prize you need to match the winning numbers exactly for each prize level. It is possible win consolation prizes by being one number away from the winning numbers or if your number is pulled out for the jackpot but doesn’t win.

Could my prize ever be lower than advertised?
It is possible for the jackpot advertised to be won just before your game is drawn. This is due to the unpredictable nature of the Mega Jackpot. There is no way to predict when the draws will take place as they can only be held once all the tickets have been purchased.
Are the prize amounts fixed?
Yes. The prize amounts from 1st prize to 10th prize are fixed. For example; there will always be 10 winners of $500 in the 5th prize level. You can view more about the prize levels on the Dividends page.
What is a sequential ticket?
A sequential ticket is where your numbers will be allocated to you in numerical order as opposed to a random order. For example; sequential would be 11, 12, 13 and random would be 26, 83, 75.
