Last Updated: Wednesday, 23 March 2016, 08:04am
Australian lottery fans have a bumper few days coming up, with a $21 million Saturday Lotto Superdraw followed closely by the launch of a brand new lottery game called Set for Life, which could see you win $20,000 a month for 20 years!
Saturday Lotto, also known as Gold Lotto, TattsLotto and X Lotto, offers Superdraws throughout the year featuring boosted Division 1 prizes. The last Superdraw landed on Saturday 20th June, when 22 players shared $22 million, each becoming an instant millionaire. This Saturday’s draw will see players aim to grab their share of a cool $21 million.
Saturday Lotto tickets are available to purchase at the Buy Tickets page, or you can get hold of them in person at any authorised retailer across Australia.
On Monday, the first Australian national lottery draw game to launch in nearly two decades will begin selling tickets. Set for Life offers a hugely tempting first prize of $20,000 a month for 20 years and the game will be drawn daily. Up to four players can claim this astonishing first prize on any given day, allowing them the freedom to live out their wildest dreams, knowing that they have the security of a very tasty, regular pay cheque popping into their bank account.
To win the top prize, you must match all eight main numbers drawn from a pool of 37, with other awards made for matching combinations of fewer main balls and the two Bonus Numbers.
Ticket holders buy a minimum of two lines, which cost $8.25 in South Australia and $8.40 everywhere else, and are entered into the draws on seven consecutive days. The odds of winning the jackpot in a draw with a single set of numbers are 1 in 36,608,020, but due to the minimum purchase being two lines, you actually have a 1 in 19,304,010 chance of being Set for Life every time you play.
You will be able to buy Set for Life tickets from Monday 3rd August, with the first draw taking place on Friday 7th August, continuing every day of the year after that.
