Australia Saturday Lotto
Basic information about the Australia Saturday Lotto: Depending on where you live in Australia you may know the original Tattslotto which debuted in 1972 by different names as individual members of the Australian Lotto Bloc market it differently. However, all of the money going in and all of the prizes going out are pooled. It is known as simply Lotto or Saturday Lotto in Western Australia and New South Wales but in Australian Capital Territory, the Northern Territory, Tasmania, and Victoria it is still called Tattslotto. Queenslanders see it marketed as Gold Lotto and in South Australia, it is sold as X Lotto.
The price to play the Saturday Lotto varies by how many tickets you buy with a minimum cost of A$2.85 for four (4) games (less than $0.72 per game). The minimum Division One jackpot is $4 million, but Superdraws are held regularly that offer top prize pools of $20 million or more.
