What happens if there is no jackpot winner for Superdraws and Megadraws?

Saturday Lotto does not have a fixed jackpot and it rolls over to a higher amount every time it is not won. Fortunately, the Superdraw and Megadaw jackpots also abide by this rule, which means that if it is not won, the first prize for the following draw will be even bigger. But, according to the statistics of these event draws, the jackpots are usually claimed within the same draw.

How often are the Superdraws and Megadraws held?

Saturday Lotto hosts Superdraws once every few months and every time, the jackpot is worth at least AUD20 million. Considering the frequency of these event draws from the last few years, there are 6 or 7 Superdraws each year.

As for the Megadraws, which come with a AUD30 million jackpot, these are traditionally held once a year, round New Year’s Eve. However, there have been years when the Saturday Lotto has held two Megadraws in the same year, so there is a chance of that happening again in the future.

What is the difference between Superdraws, Megadraws, and regular Saturday Lotto draws?

The only difference between the regular Saturday Lotto Draws, Superdraws, and Megadraws is the jackpot amount. The gameplay format is identical, as well as the draw system, which makes these event draws all about the jackpot. This is precisely why they usually gather significantly more players than regular draws.
