Saturday Lotto Megadraw
Australia Saturday Lotto Megadraws usually take place biannually and offer a Division 1 prize worth up to AU$30 million, regardless of whether the top prize is won in the preceding draw.
Megadraws operate under the same rules as regular draws, with the only difference being the size of the Division 1 prize. Just like a regular Saturday Lotto game, a player must match all six main numbers drawn in order to win the jackpot. In the event that no player successfully matches all six main numbers drawn, the top prize will roll over, or jackpot, to the following draw, though there are usually several winners in the Division 1 category during a Megadraw.
In addition to the Division 1 prize, there are five other prize divisions in a Megadraw:
|2||Match 5 plus 1 or 2 supplementary numbers|
|5||Match 3 plus 1 or 2 supplementary numbers|
|6||Match 1 or 2 plus 2 supplementary numbers|
