The True Odds of Winning Lotto — MUST READ!
The Lotto Odds Calculator on this website explains that it is not what the individual numbers are, but whether a match is made with the draw’s random sequence of numbers. The calculator provides the actual true mathematical odds and expected return, given any particular, part or whole sequence match with the draw.
In Australian lotto, every number has an equal chance of being drawn. The science of mathematics states that we cannot predict a sequence of numbers based on past draws.
The calculator admirably shows that paying for more games through Standard, QuickPick or System games only improves the odds by one and the only way of greatly improving the chances of a win is unique to Australian lotto through Pick and Powerhit entries.
When lotto was established in 1900 in Tasmania, George Adams agreed with the then Government, who was lobbied by the Thoroughbred and Dog Racing Industries, to incorporate a ‘Play the Field bet (entry)’ in all lotto draws. This was a legislated agreement for all future lotto draws. It was an attempt by the powerful lobbyists to keep George out of ‘their patch’ because they didn’t think he could have a Play the Field entry with lotto. Clever George called these a ‘Pick’ entry. It was called a ‘Power Hit’ on the Powerball Thursday draw and a ‘Pick 6’ on the Tuesday Ozlotto, when they were established in the early 1990s — to satisfy the original lotto legislation.
The following information, based on a Monday, Wednesday or Saturday draw (6 from 45), provides Lotto players further clarification to better understand how the odds are greatly improved with a ‘Pick’ entry. Simply click on each heading to reveal the answers.

Tatts Group History
The company had three divisions: Lotteries, Wagering and Gaming Solutions.
Tatts Group has a near monopoly on lotteries in Australia. Tatts Lotteries is the Lotteries Operating Unit of Tatts Group and as of September 2013 the company owned or leased:
- Tatts Lottery, which operates lotteries in Victoria, Tasmania, and The Northern Territory.
- Golden Casket, which exclusively operates lotteries in Queensland.
- NSW Lotteries, which operates lotteries in New South Wales and The Australian Capital Territory.
- SA Lotteries. which exclusively operates lotteries in South Australia.
On 1 June 2016 Tatts Group created a national lottery brand called ‘the Lott’. The brand encompasses all its jurisdictional lottery brands under this single entity. Corresponding with the change in branding, online lottery purchases were moved from Tatts.com to the new official lotteries website thelott.com.
Racing and sports wagering
Tatts Group holds wagering licences under its subsidiary UBET in Queensland, South Australia, the Northern Territory and Tasmania. Most of these assets were previously owned by UniTAB before it merged with Tattersalls Limited to form the modern Tatts Group in 2007. All of the licences entitle the company to the exclusive operation of physical betting shops which offer totaliser, fixed odds and sports wagering in their respective jurisdictions. The company also operates online nationally as Ubet.com providing racing and sports wagering products.
Its shops operated under several different brand names due to its string of acquisitions, including TAB, TattsBet, Unitab, and others. On 27 November 2014, Tatts Group announced that it would begin to unify all of its wagering properties under the new brand UBET in 2015.
Comprising two companies, Maxgaming and ByteCraft. Tatts Group both operates and provides services for electronic gaming machines (known in Australian slang as «pokies», shortened from «poker machines»).
Provides monitoring solutions and value adding services to the Australian gaming machine industry. Many Australian state governments have legislated mandatory monitoring for all gaming machines they license, to protect the integrity of the industry. Under this system, Monitoring Licences are granted to independent companies who operate computer networks connected to all gaming machines within a relevant jurisdiction. All machine activity is monitored to ensure that correct prizes are paid and taxes are calculated correctly on revenue.
MaxGaming holds licences for three jurisdictions: New South Wales, Queensland and The Northern Territory. Queensland is the only monitoring licence that isn’t exclusive, nonetheless MaxGaming still has around an 80% market share in that state.
ByteCraft is an electronics specialisation company that Tatts Group Acquired primarily to maintain gaming machines. However the company isn’t limited to gaming machines as its major contract is for the maintenance of Telstra’s payphone networks.
From Proto-Uralic *tukta (“cross-beam”). Cognate with Finnish (“thwart (of a ship)”), Komi-Zyrian тік (tïk, “cross wood, cross bar”), and Selkup (“thwart (of a ship)”).
