How To Play

Looking for something a little different? The Pools is a 6 from 38 lottery game where the winning numbers are based on results of soccer matches played in Europe, Australia and around the world instead of numbered balls being drawn from a barrel.

You can play The Pools simply as a game of chance by playing your favourite or randomly selected numbers, or you can put your soccer knowledge to the test by choosing your numbers based on the teams competing on the Match List for that week.

The winning numbers are determined by the order of rank applied to the results of the matches. For example, score draw games are ranked highest, nil-score draw games are second highest, then away team and home team wins respectively. The Match List numbers for the six highest ranked matches are the "winning numbers" and the seventh highest ranked match is the "supplementary number".

You can download the "latest match list" from the Tatts website:

Winning Combinations

The winning numbers are calculated on games that result in a draw, e.g., 2-2, 1-1. The six highest score draws determine the six "winning match numbers", with the seventh highest score draw being the "supplementary number". So if you can correctly forecast the highest drawn matches - you win!

Division What you need in one game to win
16 winning numbers
25 winning + the supplementary number
35 winning numbers
44 winning numbers
53 winning + the supplementary number
