Saturday Lotto is a national lottery of Australia that is raffled on Saturday nights. Despite being a lottery of national scope, it is recognized with various names depending on the territory where it is marketed.
The Lotto Saturday is an easy to understand and play lottery. The player simply must choose 6 numbers out of 45 possible, corresponding to balls numbered from 1 to 45 inclusive.
The prizes are distributed by categories according to the hits of the players and that we show in this box:
|1st Category||6 hits|
|2nd. Category||5 hits + 1 or 2 complementary balls|
|3rd. Category||5 hits|
|4th. Category||4 hits|
|5th. Category||3 hits + 1 or 2 complementary balls|
|6th. Category||1 or 2 hits + the 2 complementary balls|
The minimum age to buy lottery products is 18 in all states, except Western Australia, where the age was reduced to 16.
In addition to the six balls that will make up the combination of winning numbers, 2 more balls called “complementary” are extracted.
These extra or complementary balls do not influence the maximum prize category, but they are used to determine the second and fifth prize category.
Likewise, these complementary numbers are required to complement 1 or 2 hits of the numbers of the main combination, and that will configure the sixth category of prizes.
In the Saturday Lotto, you can not consider the first category prize as a jackpot like in other lotteries, since the prize is predetermined in advance. This prize is AUD $ 1,000,000 per winner up to a maximum of 4 million.
In the event that there are more than four winners, this total amount of AUD $ 4,000,000 is shared equally among all the winners.
In general, and due to the relatively easy to get the 6 numbers out of 45, it is very common for many raffles to have several top-notch winners and that the prize is shared.
