Also known as X Lotto and Gold Lotto, Saturday Lotto is a popular national lottery in Australia.
Draws are conducted by Tattersall’s. In 1985, the lotto’s format was changed from 6-from-49 lotteries to six-from-45. When Saturday Lotto was introduced, the majority of the tasks related to selling and validating tickets were performed by human agents.
In the 1980s, the network was computerized, ensuring many benefits such as later closing time for draws. The lotto offers a guaranteed first division prize of $4million, that is divided among the winners.
$20 million Superdraws are held at regular intervals (6-7 times every year). Additionally, $30 million Megadraws are conducted on special occasions such as Christmas and New Year’s Eve.
Saturday Lotto results are announced every Saturday at 8.30 PM(AEST). To play a game, players need to pay a fee of $0.65 plus their agent’s commission.
In case there is no Division 1 winner, the lotto jackpots to at least $8million; however, this happens rarely. Players winning the first division prize get 14 days to get their numbers validated. To win the first division prize, a player must match all the six numbers.
Saturday Lotto players can choose a system entry option which allows them to use more numbers. Though taking this route costs more, players using this option stand a better chance to walk away with a prize.
