TattsLotto, also known as Saturday Lotto or Gold Lotto, is a weekly Saturday night lottery game played in Australia. Taking place every Saturday at 19:30 AEST, they offer a First Division prize of AU$4 million, but it doesn’t stop at just that! Regularly, TattsLotto holds events called Superdraws, which boost the First Division prize to AU$20 million or more.
The First Division prize is shared between all the winners who match the six numbers drawn. However, there are five more prize divisions in TattsLotto as well where you could win with as little as one or two winning numbers, plus two supplementary numbers.
The odds of winning any division prize with a single game are 1 in 144. These odds increase to 1 in 12 when twelve games are played.
Start by purchasing a QuickPick ticket with eight randomly generated numbers or a Marked entry ticket where you choose the eight numbers yourself. Then, every Saturday at 19:30 AEST, the lottery game randomly draws eight balls from a pool of balls numbered 1 through 45. The first six numbers are the main numbers and the last two are supplementary. If you match the six main numbers - you win the First Division prize! If not, there are five more prize tiers where you could win with matching as little as one or two main numbers and two supplementary numbers.
There are two ways to play Saturday lotto. First one is to buy standard entries, where you choose to play a QuickPick or a Marked entry. With a QuickPick numbers are generated for you and the prices are from $4.20 for six games, and with a Marked entry you can pick your own numbers and that will cost you from $2.80 for four games. You can also decide how many games you like to play, mark up to 18 games while buying a ticket in-store or up to 50 games when playing online. Second option is System and Pick entries and they give you more chances to win. With a System entry you can choose from 7 to 20 numbers (instead of 6), a ticket with 7 numbers will cost you $5 and with 20 numbers - $27,79. A Pick entry guarantees you either 1 or 2 winning numbers and the prices start from $28.70.
