One of the reasons we at Australian Gambling recommend playing at Oz Lotteries is that you can claim Lotto Points every time you play. These points can become very valuable, allowing you to earn free and discounted online lottery tickets just for playing the same games you already enjoy. Here’s a look at how exactly you can earn these lotto loyalty rewards, and how you can use them to your advantage.
The first step towards snaring free Lotto Points is to open an account at Oz Lotteries. This is a stock-standard online registration form – name, address, date of birth, et cetera – and it only takes a minute to fill out. Make sure you are signed up for promotional and/or results emails; otherwise, you won’t receive any loyalty points on your lotto purchases.
Once you are up and running, you must add some funds to your account. Again, this is a quick and painless process, and credits should appear instantly upon confirmation. Oz Lotteries accepts only trusted AUD deposit methods such as Visa, MasterCard, PayPal, BPay, and Diners Club International, and all cash transactions are fully protected by 128-bit SSL (Secure Socket Layer) digital encryptions for the utmost in online banking security.
Now that you have some real money credits in your account balance, it is time to buy some Internet lotto tickets. All the major Australian lottery draws are available, including Oz Lotto, Powerball, TattsLotto, Monday and Wednesday Lotto, and the Soccer Pools. You can also buy mobile lotto tickets on your smartphone or tablet device. Sign up at www.OzLotteries.com today to get one free lotto ticket and start earning rewards points.
Lotto Points are earned automatically every time you buy a ticket at Oz Lotteries. Remember: before you purchase any lottery tickets, you will need to ensure that you are subscribed to receive promo or results emails. If you are not sure whether you are registered for either of these, check your email setup in your Oz Lotteries account.
To do this, log in at the Oz Lotteries website, click/tap on ‘My Account’ in the navigation bar towards the top of the screen, and then select ‘Email Settings’ from the sidebar on the right. There, you can choose whether you wish to receive newsletters, promotional emails, and daily lotto results. Make sure the boxes are ticked for at least one the latter two options, and you are good to go.
Once you have made certain of your email settings, every ticket you buy at Oz Lotteries will earn you loyalty rewards. For every $1 you spend on Australian lotto games, you will receive one Lotto Point. So, for example: if we bought a standard 12-game ticket for the Saturday Lotto at $10.80, we would gain 10 points; and if we were to purchase a System 9 ticket at $75.60, we would get 75 points.
Lotto Points can be used to buy any and all kinds of tickets at Oz Lotteries. Each point is worth $0.01 towards the price of a ticket, and you can use as many points as you like for any given purchase. If you have enough in the kitty, you can cover the entire cost of a ticket through rewards points alone.
There are two ways to redeem Lotto Points:
Manual – If we like, we can simply choose whatever amount of points we wish to use for any given ticket purchase. So, for example: if we have 1500 Lotto Points in the bank, we could use all of them to save $15 on a $32 ticket; or we could opt to spend only 500 of those points for a $5 discount. When you proceed to checkout with your ticket order, just type in the amount of rewards points you wish to use.
Automatic – We can also set things up in the checkout section so that when we have accrued a certain amount of points, they will go towards an automatic discount on our next Oz Lotteries ticket. For example: if we set the minimum points level at 200, then we will save $2.00 on our next lotto purchase if we have at least 200 points saved up; but if we only have 150 points in the bank, then no points will be used towards a discount.
Lotto Points cannot be redeemed for cash. Otherwise, how you choose to use them is entirely up to you.
Lotto Points can be applied to every Australian lotto draw available at Oz Lotteries. Here’s a list showing how many points you need to purchase a single standard game for each major draw:
