National Lottery

What is National Lottery?

National Lottery is a “game of chance” where a customer can guess the outcome of a lucky draw and win money based on the amount of numbers they have guessed correctly.

Lotto Draws take place every week on a Wednesday and Saturday. Powerball draws take place every week on a Tuesday and Friday. Customers numbers or choose the Quick Pick option where a randomising machine selects numbers for you. Customers’ winnings are determined by the amount of corresponding numbers between their selection and the numbers drawn.
