How to Play Saturday Lotto

The Saturday Lotto is one of the best loved lottery games in Australia and is simple to play.

The first six balls drawn from the Lotto barrel are considered the winning numbers, while the next two balls drawn are the supplementary numbers. The more winning numbers players have on each game line on their ticket, the higher their prize.

Essentially, the Saturday Lotto has an estimated $4 million Division 1 prize each week, and this sum rolls over to the next week if it is not won. Special draws such as the SuperDraws and MegaDraws, however, see to it that players receive much bigger sums if they happen to win the lottery that week.

It costs just $2.85 for four games - the minimum required to play the Saturday Lotto.

Odds of Winning Saturday Lotto

It would be great if everyone could win the lottery and walk away with huge sums such as the $30 million in the kitty of the January 2nd MegaDraw. However, it's not all-or-nothing when it comes to winning the lottery.

There is also a good chance of taking home a smaller prize as well - the only thing you need to do is buy a lottery ticket to be in the running.

These are the odds of winning from Divisions 1 through to 6.

Division 1 - 6 Winning Numbers - Odds of 1 in 8,145,060

Division 2 - 5 Winning Numbers + 1 Supplementary Number - Odds of 1 in 678,755

Division 4 - 4 Winning Numbers - Odds of 1 in 733

Division 5 - 3 Winning Numbers + 1 Supplementary Number - Odds of 1 in 298
