Saturday Lotto numbers

Lotteries and numbers are the two pies in the pod. To avoid any misunderstanding and discrepancies when checking the winning Saturday Lotto numbers it is worth mentioning that Saturday Lotto is promoted throughout the entire Australian continent under the following names depending on the hosting region: TattsLotto (in Tasmania, Victoria, Capital and Northern Territory); Gold Lotto (Queensland); X Lotto (SA); or simply Lotto (NSW, Western Australia). In fact Saturday Lotto results are the same no matter what region it is played in. The lottery format has undergone several changes concerning the jackpots and the odds of winning along with the pool of numbers. Originally the winning Asutralian Saturday Lotto numbers were drawn according to the following scheme: 6 main ones from the set of 40 and 1 from the remaining ones (as it is a case in Monday and Wednesday Lotto). Matching the balls was required to hit the pot, at that time set at 50,000 Australian dollars.

That was the case until July 1985 when the set added 5 balls along with the second supplementary ball. Naturally enough the wider is the guess range the slimmer are the odds. But on the other hand that enabled the sizable increase of the jackpot currently set at $4 mln leaving alone the special raffles the so-called Super Draws offering the impressive top prizes of $20 million. These special raffles take place 7-8 times a year depending on the tickets sales and jack-potting draws and can grow really big. The even larger draws called the Mega Draws and offering around $30 million, usually take place once a year to mark the Christmas or the New Year festivities. Moreover the additional Saturday Lotto numbers are accounted just for the second, fifth and sixth tiers. Match any of the two to get the mentioned prizes. On very rare occasions when there is no grand winner, the main prize can be rolled over to the next raffle and increased from the regular $4 mln to $8 mln.
