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 Saturday Lotto is an easy to understand and play lottery. The player must simply choose six numbers out of 45 possible, corresponding to balls numbered from 1 to 45 inclusive.
The prizes are distributed by categories according to player hits which are shown 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|
What are the Saturday Lotto complementary numbers?
In addition to the six balls that will make up the combination of winning numbers, two 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 categories.
Likewise, these complementary numbers are required to complement one or two hits from the main combination, and that will configure the sixth category of prizes.
Saturday Lotto Jackpot
In the Saturday Lotto, you cannot 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 four 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, due to fact it is relatively easy to get the six numbers out of 45, it is very common for many raffles to have several top winners and that the prize is shared.
