pick the draws to score!
The Pools is a ‘6 from 38’ lottery game where the winning numbers are based on results of soccer matches. You don’t have to be a soccer expert to play, simply grab a QuickPick.
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 as simply as buying a QuickPick, 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".
The Pools is a national game that is conducted by NSW Lotteries in NSW and the ACT.
playing is easy!
Choose 6 numbers from 38 by randomly selecting your numbers or by choosing your numbers from the Match Lists available online or in-store. Winning numbers are determined by the highest scoring drawn soccer matches.
