More prizes, more winners and more reasons to play: What you need to know about the exciting updates to Saturday Lotto
For over three decades Saturday Lotto has been a staple of the weekly lottery calendar, giving Aussies the chance to become a millionaire every weekend. Now, with exciting new updates on the horizon Saturdays have never been better, with the chance to win a share in a bigger estimated division one prize, as well as an increased chance of winning any prize!
From Saturday 10 October 2020 (draw 4093) onwards, Saturday Lotto will be giving you the chance to win a share of the new estimated $5 million division one prize pool!
You read that right — an estimated $5 million division one prize pool will be up for grabs every Saturday! Imagine sharing a slice of that prize with your loved ones. This division one prize pool is an increase from the current estimated $4 million offering.
But the exciting changes don’t stop there, with the chance of winning any prize improving from 1-in-85 to 1-in-42, based on a standard 1-game entry. This has been accomplished by changing the winning combination for division six.
There’s also a change in the combination of winning numbers needed to win division six. Currently, 1 or 2 winning numbers + 2 supplementary numbers are needed. However, from Saturday 10 October 2020, only 3 winning numbers in a single game panel are required to win division six. Once these changes come into effect, the chance of winning division six will improve from 1-in-144 to 1-in-53.
For anyone who already loves playing Saturday Lotto, these game updates won’t change the way you play the game or how you win division one, so there’s no need to change your favourite numbers, update your subscriptions or change your ticket type.
The only thing you do need to do is mark your calendars for Saturday 10 October 2020, as this could be the day you walk away with a share of an estimated $5 million division one prize!
To support these exciting game updates, the price of playing Saturday Lotto will be increasing by 10 cents per game, per entry (plus commission) into Draw 4093 and beyond. You can find out the cost of your entry into the updated game by asking a friendly staff member from your local outlet. Alternatively, if purchasing your entry online at thelott.com or via the Lott app, the pricing of your entry will be displayed upon check-out.
To recap, here’s the exciting updates the price increase will support:
- New estimated $5 million division one prize pool
- Increased chance of winning any prize
- Increased chance of winning division six with only three winning numbers in a single game panel required.
We are so excited for these updates that will create more winners, more often!
