With Oz Lotto’s historic $80 million draw edging near, it’s been revealed which numbers and tickets will boost your chances of winning the biggest jackpot in seven years.
Experts have revealed how each ball is analysed to make sure it has a fair and equal chance of being drawn – with balls even undergoing independent testing before the draw.
National Measurement Institute experts weigh every lotto ball, to make sure they’re all the exact same weight under the strict weight standard, the Courier Mail reported.
The Lott spokeswoman Bronwyn Spencer said the luckiest entries for the draw is an 8 marked entry, and the second is a 50-game QuickPick.

Third luckiest was a tie between a six-game quickpick and a four-game marked entry.
Government officials even oversee the checking of the balls prior to the draw, which happens once a year.
Malcolm Bartlett from the National Measurement Institute National Trade Measurement Services said weighing them provides certainty that every ball has a fair chance of being drawn.
‘The process in weighing the new lottery balls is we weigh them on a very fine balance to an extremely accurate measurement so that we ensure all balls are within tolerance of what they’re meant to be,’ he said.
The Lott requests The National Measurement Institute to weigh the lotto balls, for maximum accuracy.
After they’re weighed, the institute gives a report to the Lott of the exact weight of each ball – and it’s so accurate the report is within one-thousandth of a gram.
One in four Aussies are expected to buy a ticket for Tuesday night’s Powerball, which will be drawn at 7.30.
