Monday Lotto Dividends and Odds
The Division 1 prize in Monday Lotto is $1 million per winner, for players who match all six of their selected numbers to the winning numbers. There are also five other ways to win every week. Learn more about all the dividends and odds of winning.
Eight numbers are selected at random in each Monday Lotto draw; the first six are the main winning numbers, and they are followed by two supplementary balls. If you match all six main numbers, you win the top prize of $1 million. This is a fixed award per player and does not roll over to the next draw if there are no winners. However, the Division 1 prize fund is capped at $4 million, so you will receive a share of $4 million if there are more than four winners.
The table below shows all the ways to win and how the prize fund is split between all the divisions, along with the odds of winning in each one and the average prize payouts.View prize payouts for the latest draw

In total, 60 percent of the revenue from ticket sales is used to pay prizes across all six divisions. However, this is split into two. Division 1 receives 27 percent, while the remaining 33 percent is kept separate so that it can be allocated to winners in the other five prize categories according to the table.
The money allocated to the Division 1 prize fund is allowed to accumulate and be held in reserve if there are no winners or it does not all get paid out. This ensures that winners of future draws will receive the specified prize of $1 million each (or a share of $4 million if necessary). If the money allocated to Division 1 is not sufficient to pay out the advertised prize, the lottery provider must subsidise the shortfall from its own funds.
