How to Play Wednesday LottoLatest Wednesday Lotto Results ›
Wednesday Lotto draws are held at 10:30pm AEST with the winning numbers appearing on the Wednesday Lotto Results page soon after.
Just as with Monday Lotto, players purchase their tickets and select six numbers from a choice of 45 and must match all six with the numbers drawn to win the Division 1 prize of AU$1 million. Two additional balls, known as supplementary numbers, are drawn after the main six, which allows players to increase the value of prizes in certain winning tiers.
Wednesday Lotto Prizes
Wednesday Lotto offers six different prize tiers, and players can win a prize for matching as few as one or two main numbers and both supplementary numbers. The Division 1 prize always stands at AU$1 million per winner and is guaranteed for up to four players who match all six main numbers. If more than four ticket holders win in this division, then they will each receive an equal share of a prize pool worth AU$4 million. The prize tiers, odds and winning combinations are as follows:
|Division||Winning Combinations||Odds Based on One Game|
|1st||Match 6||1 in 8,145,060|
|2nd||Match 5 + 1 or 2 Supplementary Numbers||1 in 678,755|
|3rd||Match 5||1 in 36,689|
