Oz Lotto, like many other lotto games, has developed and evolved since it started in Febuary 1994. It was originally a normal 6 from 45 game and in Oct 2005, the 7th ball was added. In some Australian territories, Oz Lotto was renamed to Super 7's Oz Lotto and Oz 7 Lotto at this point.
Oz Lotto is one of the few lottos where 7 balls are drawn from the same set instead of 5 or 6.
