The OZ Saturday Game
Introduction To OZ Saturday Game
Oz Saturday Lotto is played nationwide across Australia under different names. It is known as TattsLotto in Northern territories, Gold Lotto in Queensland, X Lotto in South Australia and Saturday Lotto in Western Australia. It was originally modelled on the European style lotteries and first introduced to Australians in Victoria in 1972. Oz Saturday Lotto later expanded its territory to all Australian states in 2013.
The Victorian state government awarded Tattersall’s the right to hold a weekly lottery in order to raise additional funds for the state’s healthcare system. The first Tattslotto draw was held on the 24th of June 1972 and was televised on HSV-7 in Melbourne with a first division prize of A$50 000 (AUD).
Players originally picked six numbers from 1 to 40 in a standard game. Six numbers and one supplementary number were drawn from a transparent barrel each week, but that later changed in 1985 when a new game format was introduced. Six numbers were drawn from 45 balls and the additional supplementary number was also introduced in the same draw.
Betting on the outcomes of the Oz Saturday Lotto is simple. You are required to select 6 numbers from 1 to 45, followed by two supplementary numbers. When you match all 8 numbers correctly, you’ll win up to R350 million with LottoStar!
