How to Improve Your Odds of Winning the Saturday Lotto Superdraw
Last Updated: Wednesday, 15 June 2016, 14:03pm
The next Saturday Lotto Superdraw has been set to take place on 18th June and will offer up $22 million for the First Division prize pool. Huge eight-figure prizes are offered occasionally throughout the year, with dozens of tickets sharing in the windfall as they match the winning line and change their fortunes forever. Have you thought about how you can improve your odds of getting your hands on a piece of this weekend’s action?
There have been three Superdraws and one Megadraw in 2016 with First Division prize pools ranging from $20 million for the draw on Saturday 13th February all the way up to $30 million for the bumper Megadraw on Saturday 2nd January. Saturday Lotto, also known as Tattslotto, Gold Lotto or X Lotto, typically provides a top prize of $4 million, but this weekend, players will have the opportunity to compete for more than five times that sum.
If you’d like to improve your chances of winning a slice of this weekend’s enormous prize, you’ve got some options available. Based on a single game, the likelihood that you will match the six main numbers drawn stands at 1 in 8,145,060, but buying a regular Quick Pick, which features the equivalent of 12 standard games, will see your odds of winning the top prize drop to 1 in 678,755.
You can also plump for a system entry, which adds more numbers onto your ticket for the chance to create even more combinations. You can place up to 20 numbers on a single panel to generate anywhere from 7 to 38,760 combinations of digits that could see you land the big one. This is the perfect choice for lotto syndicates, as the cost of the entry can be split among the players.
While buying more entries or opting for a system doesn’t explicitly guarantee a return, you’ll stand a greater chance of landing a prize this Saturday if you hold more entries. Now is the time to gather up friends, family and colleagues to start a Superdraw syndicate to see if your luck will come in at the weekend and you’ll get the chance to pop the corks alongside your nearest and dearest. Good luck!
