How to play Saturday Lotto at All The Best Lottos

When playing Saturday Lotto, you can choose to play your own special numbers, our Magic Numbers, via a Syndicate or in a Bundle! You can select your own numbers by manual input or press QuickPick so the numbers are randomly generated for you. Each game gives you 6 numbers. Match all 6 numbers to win a Division 1 prize.

What is a QuickPick ticket?

A Quick pick is the simplest method of playing. Every 6 numbered line represents one game draw and gives you one chance to win a prize. Game numbers can also be chosen manually. Your choice of 6 numbers can be between 1 and 45.

How to win a Sat lotto prize

To win Division 1 in Saturday Lotto, you need to match all 6 of your numbers in a single game to the 6 winning numbers in the draw. You can win a prize with a minimum of 3 main numbers.

How does Saturday Lotto work?

Every Saturday, 8 balls are drawn at random from 45 balls, numbered 1 to 45. The first 6 balls drawn from the barrel are the winning numbers and the final 2 balls are the supplementary numbers. These supplementary numbers are used to determine prizes in Divisions 2 and 5.

What do Supplementary numbers do?
The extra 2 balls known as Supps increase the odds to help you win a Division 2 prize or a Division 5 prize. These 2 numbers are drawn on the night of the draw at random, so you only see 6 numbers on your ticket. The two extra numbers are considered a second chance at a big prize.

When does the draw close?

Saturday Lotto closes at 10:00pm Central European Time with your last opportunity to play online.
