Lotto HotPicks – Pick and match

You could win bigger Prizes by picking and matching fewer Lotto numbers. Match your Lotto HotPicks numbers against the Lotto Draw. Easy as 1, 2, 3…

Lotto HotPicks uses the Lotto Draws on Wednesdays and Saturdays, but you do not have to play Lotto in order to play Lotto HotPicks. Only the first six numbers randomly selected in a Lotto Draw (the 'Main Numbers') are used for Lotto HotPicks; the Bonus number (the number randomly selected after the Main Numbers have been drawn) is not used.

How much does it cost?
