Saturday Lotto Superdraw Spreads Love to Multiple Winners

The Saturday Lotto Superdraw on 13th February offered a First Division prize of $20 million, and 17 participants matched all six main numbers to land $1.1 million each. As the big winners spent Valentine’s Day feeling a lot of love for Saturday Lotto, there were over 1 million other players who picked up prizes.
Saturday Lotto Superdraws are held from time to time to boost the jackpot regardless of whether or not it was won in the previous draw, and they are regularly scheduled to coincide with major events such as New Year, Halloween or, in this case, Valentine’s Day. The winning numbers on Saturday were 2, 8, 25, 27, 28 and 43 with supplementary numbers 6 and 32.
As well as the 17 participants who split the top prize, there were 155 ticket holders who matched five main numbers plus a supplementary number to scoop $8,579 each, while the other rewards given away ranged from $14.85 for matching one or two main numbers plus a supplementary number to $1,092 for matching five main numbers.

It has been quite a few days for big jackpots, after a single anonymous player from the Northern Territory matched all six main numbers plus the Powerball to net $25 million in the Powerball draw on Thursday 11th February. The winner had selected their own numbers but it has been revealed that only 47.1 percent of Australian lottery players use their own picks.
Research shows that the remaining 52.9 percent go with computer picks, although there is a much higher proportion of women who select their own line. Tatts spokesperson Claire Taylor commented: “Perhaps this could explain why men are often criticised for forgetting anniversary or romantic dates such as Valentine’s Day.”
If you are happy to go with a random selection and pick a new set of numbers in an instant, why not use an Australian Lottery Number Generator. The next Saturday Lotto jackpot will be worth $4 million and tickets can be bought online from anywhere in the world or from authorised retailers in Australia. Best of luck!
