Last Updated: Wednesday 27 December 2017, 13:36 pm
The year is set to finish with a bang for a number of lucky Saturday Lotto players on 30th December, with a Megadraw set to offer a jackpot of $30 million. There were 23 ticket holders who became millionaires in the 2016 New Year’s Eve draw and hopes are high across Australia that there will be host of big winners this time around.
How Megadraws Work
Megadraws are similar to Superdraws and take place every now and again to generate fresh excitement amongst lottery fans. The jackpot is increased to a fixed amount, regardless of what happened in the previous draw, and players rush out in their droves to buy tickets.
There are often multiple winners of the top prize and Pina Compagnone, a spokesperson for LotteryWest, is certainly in optimistic mood. “We're hoping to open the door of our winners' room to a few more newly-minted millionaires before the year is out,” said Compagnone in the Brisbane Times.
Oz Lotto and Powerball Jackpots
It is not just the prospect of a Saturday Lotto Megadraw which is driving up the interest levels of lottery players. The First Division prize in Oz Lotto is up to $40 million following a run of six rollovers, while there is a Powerball jackpot of $25 million for players to aim for this Thursday.
If you feel like you could put $30 million to good use, or fancy winning the Oz Lotto or Powerball jackpots, you can get involved now by choosing numbers online or visiting an authorised retailer in Australia.
