How many special numbers do you have? Do you prefer to play more of your favourite numbers in one single game for more chances to win?

Well, a System entry might be just be the one for you!

It's a special type of lottery entry that can be played in Monday & Wednesday Lotto, Saturday Lotto, Powerball, and Oz Lotto. They not only allow you to pick more numbers compared to a standard game, but they also give you more chances to win multiple prize divisions.

Here’s the lowdown on how to get your system entry!

How do System entries work?

System entries are the equivalent to playing lots of standard games. Think of it as a supercharged entry where you can play more numbers in a single game. While lotteries are games of chance and each number has an equal chance of being drawn, playing more numbers in a single game gives you more chances to win division one, plus more chances to score prizes across multiple divisions! 

Let’s use Oz Lotto as an example. 

In a single, standard Oz Lotto game, you select seven numbers. Your numbers need to match the seven winning numbers drawn from the barrel to win division one. But with a System 9 Oz Lotto entry, you can select nine numbers in a single game. 

That means the single game of nine numbers is the equivalent to 36 standard games. This is because there are 36 different combinations of seven numbers that can be generated from your numbers. That’s 36 chances to win a prize!

What are the different types of System entries?

The type of System entry you choose depends on how many numbers you want to play. 

For example, a System 8 entry means you select eight numbers in a single game whereas, a System 9 entry allows you to choose nine numbers, and so on. 

You can choose to play from seven to twenty numbers on a System entry in Monday & Wednesday Lotto, and Saturday Lotto.

For Powerball and Oz Lotto, you can play eight to twenty numbers in one game. 

How do you play a System entry?

You can either head into your local lottery outlet and ask for a System QuickPick or use a coupon to mark your numbers. Ypu can also play system entries online or via The Lott app.
