The Australia Monday & Wednesday Lotto offers up a no-frills lottery game that promises relatively good odds compared to other much bigger lotteries.

About Australia Monday & Wednesday Lotto

Australia Monday and Wednesday Lotto

The Australia Monday & Wednesday Lotto was first established way back in 1979, and was originally operated by NSW Lotteries. However, starting October 13, 2008 Australia’s Tattersall began offering the Monday and Wednesday Lotto games.

Throughout its long history, the Australia Monday & Wednesday Lotto has had several changes to its mechanics made—such as bumping the number of balls from 40 to 45, and adding a sixth prize tier. The current mechanics have been in place since February 26, 2012.

Quick Australia Monday & Wednesday Lotto Facts

  • Jackpots are Fixed: Australia Monday and Wednesday Lotto jackpots are fixed at AU$1 million—which means there’s no chance of rollovers.
  • Draws Twice Per Week: As the name of the lottery implies, Australia Monday and Wednesday Lotto holds draws every Monday and Wednesday at 7:30 PM AEST.
  • Favorable Odds: At Australia Monday & Wednesday Lotto, you’re looking at some favorable odds compared to bigger lotteries.
  • Pays in Cash: All prizes at Australia Monday and Wednesday Lotto are paid out in lump sum form.
  • Tax-Free: On top of being paid out in lump sum form, Australia Monday & Wednesday Lotto prizes are also 100% tax-free at the source.

How to Play Australia Monday and Wednesday Lotto?

The Basics

Australia Monday and Wednesday Lotto is quite easy to pick up and play. The mechanics are dead simple: you pick six numbers from a selection pool ranging from 1 to 45, while two supplementary numbers—which determine who wins in certain non-jackpot tiers—are given during the draw.

To win the jackpot, you must match all six of your numbers, while matching five plus one or two supplementary numbers will net you the second prize. In total, there are six prize tiers you can win in, and you only need to match one or two of your numbers plus two supplementary numbers to win the lowest prize tier.

Speaking of prizes, Australia Monday & Wednesday Lotto is different from most lottery games in that the jackpots don’t fluctuate—they are of a fixed amount. You’re looking at a AU$1,000,000 top prize for every draw. This also means that jackpots don’t rollover. Every now and then, superdraws are held. These are special draws that can offer up to AU$5 million in jackpot prizes.

Australia Monday & Wednesday Lotto Odds of Winning

Australia Monday & Wednesday Lotto’s are generally favorable. For instance, you have a 1 in 8,145,060 chance of winning the jackpot. If you compare that with the odds of, say, the US Powerball—with its 1 in 292,201,338 chance of winning the jackpot—and you’ll immediately see that the difference is night and day as far as odds go. Heck, even Ontario 49—which is a smaller game like Australia Monday and Wednesday Lotto—still has slightly longer odds. Check out the table below to see:

Numbers Matched Odds of Winning
6 1 in 8,145,060
5 + 1 or 2 Supplementary 1 in 678,755
5 1 in 36,689
4 1 in 733
3 + 1 or 2 Supplementary 1 in 297
1 or 2 + 2 Supplementary 1 in 144

So What Happens if You Win?

Because of the unique prize structure of Australia Monday and Wednesday Lotto, winning the fixed jackpot comes with a few caveats. For starters, if there are more than four jackpot winners, the jackpot will then climb to AU$4 million and will be divided accordingly to them. However, if there are four or less winning ticket holders, then each will winner will receive AU$1 million.

Two more things worth noting about Australia Monday & Wednesday Lotto: all prizes are 100% tax-free and paid in lump sum form. That said, if you played this game using an online lottery service then, depending on the rules of the lottery site, a commission fee might be deducted from your winnings. Plus, if you live in another country, you also might have to deal with your local tax laws. At least, you won’t have to worry about tax withholdings at the source.
