Saturday Lotto set to deliver more prizes and winners

Saturdays have never been better thanks to exciting new improvements to Saturday Lotto that will give players a chance to share in a bigger Division One prize and improve the chance of winning any prize.

Australia’s most popular Lotto game has been a staple of the weekly lottery calendar every Saturday for over three decades.

From this Saturday 10 October 2020 (Draw 4093), Saturday Lotto players will be playing for the chance to win a slice of the new and larger estimated $5 million* Division One prize pool – an increase from the estimated $4 million* offer.

The exciting changes don’t stop there, with the chances of winning any prize improving from 1-in-86 to 1-in-42, based on one game.

“Due to a change in the combination of winning numbers needed to win Division Six, it will now be easier to win a Saturday Lotto prize,” said spokesperson for Saturday Lotto Bronwyn Spencer.

From this Saturday, players will only require three winning numbers in a single game to win Division Six (previously players needed 1 or 2 winning numbers plus 2 supplementary numbers).

“This improves the chances of winning division six from 1-in-144 to 1-in-52 -that means the chance to win Division Six twice as often,” said Ms Spencer.

Ms Spencer said the Saturday Lotto game changes were in response to national research conducted by the Australian Lotto Bloc.

“We spoke to some of our most loyal Saturday Lotto players about why they love playing and they told us they would love to see more prizes, more winners and more reasons to play!” she said.

“Players will see that’s exactly what we have done by providing more benefits to players with these exciting improvements.

“For people who already love playing Saturday Lotto, the best part is these game improvements don’t change the way the game is played or how they win Division One.

“There is no need to change your favourite numbers or update your registration details.

“To support the improved chances of winning a prize, there will be a small price increase of 10 cents, plus retailer commission, per game.

“The only thing players do need to do is mark their calendars for Saturday 10 October 2020, as this could be the day they could walk away with a share of $5 million division one prize!”

Tickets for the new Saturday Lotto are available in Western Australia from Lotterywest in-store, online or through the app.

Tickets in all other States and Territories are available from The Lott.
