Superdraw Saturdays stick the landing, creating 57 millionaires in 2021!
Across seven special events, this year’s Saturday Lotto $20 million Superdraws have been a steady source of millionaire mania.
With Saturday 16 October marking the final Superdraw of 2021, we were thrilled to see this winning trend continue.
Six division one winning entries took out the $20 million prize pool, each scoring a huge $3.3 million prize.
It was a sensational finish to the latest Superdraw series. And while we’ll have to wait until 2022 for the chance to crown our next Superdraw winners, we’re celebrating our 2021 wins with a look back at the year’s Superdraw stats.
Winners are grinners
In total, there were 64 division one winning entries Australia wide in 2021’s seven Saturday Lotto Superdraws.
Of these winning entries, 57 newly minted Aussie millionaires were created!
The other seven entries were held by some stoked winning syndicates, where groups of players shared their slice of the division one pie.
The super states
Queensland saw the most Superdraw wins with 17 division one winning entries, followed by New South Wales with 15 and Victoria with 13.
Nine winning entries went to players in Western Australia. Both Tasmania and South Australia celebrated three division one wins, and one landed in the Northern Territory.
Sharing is caring
With lockdowns and restrictions continuing, this year’s winners tended to focus their celebrations closer to home and found connection through shared winning moments.
In the most recent Superdraw, a Western Sydney man revealed he’d be halving the prize for double the joy!
“I’m going halves with my neighbour. We’ve been playing together for almost two years,” he explained.
“The amount of times we’ve sat around at home and discussed what we’d do if we won the lottery —it’s incomprehensible! It’s life-changing in so many ways.”
Meanwhile in Queensland, an Indooroopilly player paused during his winning discovery to imagine all the other people across the country enjoying their Superdraw surprise.
“I really hope the other five winners from the draw are having the best possible day like we are,” he said.
While the Superdraws may have wrapped for the year, there’s still plenty to get excited about with Saturday Lotto. Every weekend there’s more chances to become a millionaire with an estimated $5 million division one prize pool, plus more special events on the horizon.
Perhaps you’ll be seeing out the year as a millionaire too!
