Jackpots in Australia are some of the largest in the world. Though the Saturday Lotto jackpots in Australian lotteries may not be as large as those in some European and American draws, they are much more manageable.
Currently, Powerball is the lottery with Australia’s largest jackpot. Three lucky Australians won the record-breaking AU$150 million jackpot on September 19, 2019. Not only that, but on January 17, 2019, one lucky Powerball player took home a record-breaking AU$107,575,649 jackpot.
The second largest prize ever won in an Australian lottery was on the Oz Lotto. The announced jackpot for the lottery draw on November 6, 2012, was AU$100 million; however, ticket sales increased the jackpot to an incredible AU$111,972,151, which was split between four lucky winners.
Saturday’s Australian Lotto
For next Saturday’s Lotto draw, tickets are available for purchase every day of the week. Saturday Lotto, which debuted in 1972, is the longest-running and one of the most popular lotteries in Australia. Tattslotto, Gold Lotto, X Lotto, and Lotto are all regional variations of the same national lottery. No matter what you call it, this lotto is guaranteed to spice up your Saturday.
On average, the Lotto jackpot is split amongst many winners and has a starting value of AU$5 million. This thrilling lottery has a record-breaking prize of AU$47.9 million, won in a Superdraw back in April of 2008.
Suppose you want to play a lottery with the best cost-benefit ratio, considering the probabilities of winning, the jackpot size, the ticket price, and any applicable taxes. In that case, you should play the lotto.
The mechanics of lotto
Players of Australia’s Lotto choose six numbers between 1 and 45.
Two of the five additional prizes are awarded based on the number of bonus balls drawn from the same drum. The rules for the Lotto Superdraw and the Megadraw are the same.
Lottery Extravaganza in Australia,
The Australian National Lottery holds “Superdraws”—larger-than-usual lottery drawings—on holidays and other special events throughout the year. Prizes for both the jackpot and the secondary tiers are raised in these exceptional drawings. You can learn more about the thrilling, unique draws that occur every Monday, Wednesday, and Saturday in Australia’s Lotto.
On Saturdays, there is a unique drawing of the lottery.
There are seven annual “Superdraws” for the Australia Saturday Lotto. Superdraws are well-liked since they always start with a minimum guaranteed prize of about AU$20 million.
The annual Lotto Megadraw has an increased jackpot. The Megadraw is held during the holiday season and has a staggering AU$30 million jackpot prize.
The jackpots for the Saturday Lotto Superdraws and the Lotto Megadraws are not capped; however, they are typically shared among many winners. Statistics show that after every Superdraw, there are around 14 people who win the top prize. In total, 54 people have won the Megadraw jackpot. Back in 2004, they split an AU$31 million prize.
