RSL are offering a prize home at Kirra with significantly better odds that winning tonight's Oz Lotto draw.

Entrants to the RSL Art Union lottery are, according to RSL, 259 times more likely to win the $1.9 million beach house at Kirra than they are to win division one in the Oz Lotto.

A capped pool of 1.4 million entries gives entrants average odds of 175,000 to one, while the Oz Lotto draw offers odds of 45.3 million to one.

Not only do punters have a much bigger chance to win but they'll also support a worthwhile cause with all money generated by the RSL draw going towards providing important services to war veterans and their families.

RSL Art Union Lotteries manager Luke Traini said his organisation was proud to offer one of the best value lotteries in Australia.

"The RSL draw offers capped entry draws with a low $5 point of entry that greatly enhances the odds of winning.

"Tellingly, you're 28 times more likely to be killed by lightning than to win the $100 million Oz Lotto," Mr Traini said.

With an estimated annual rental return of $62,400 the winner may be able to retire comfortably.

"With Remembrance Day around the corner, there has never been a better time to stand up and support diggers, past and present.
