The Australian Oz Lotto will draw tonight for AUD $5 million.
Oz Lotto, one of Australia's biggest lotteries, will draw tomorrow evening 20:30 AEST (6:30am EST, 4:30am GMT) for a sum of AUD $5,000,000. A weekly lottery, Oz Lotto has paid the highest prizes in jackpots more than any other lottery in the land down under. Typically, the lottery does not soar to huge jackpots reminiscing of America's biggest lotteries, but when it does it gets really big. November 2012 saw the Oz Lotto paying an AUD $117 million prize paid to a ticket winner, with a AUD$109 paid 3 years before then in 2009 to another lucky player.

The last few years also saw the Oz Lotto become accessible for worldwide crowds, thanks to the advent of online lottery ticket agents spread out globally. If playing the lottery was a chore just a few years ago, today in just a few clicks people from all over the world can buy lottery tickets at their country or across the ocean if they wish. Prominent online lottery sites the likes of Lottery Master and TheLotter employ agents stationed all across the globe who purchase the desired amount of tickets for the site's customers, who are then sent a scan of the tickets to make it as if they have went and purchased them themselves.
How to Play
The Oz Lotto requires players to pick seven numbers out of a 1-45 range, and then seven balls are drawn including two bonus balls, doubling the chances to win the second, fourth and seventh prizes. With the help of online lottery ticket agents, players can use quick pick to randomly choose their numbers in a jiffy. Regardless of how the numbers were chosen, players are notified if they own a winning ticket, putting an end to "lost ticket" problems.
