Australia - Saturday Lotto
Tattslotto is just one of several Australian lottery game offerings available. Also called the Australian Saturday Lotto, Tattslotto is a countrywide lotto game, which means anyone can participate, rather than in-state games. Depending on where in the country a person is this lottery has several regional names. In Victoria and the Northern Territories it is known as Tattslotto. Queenslands calls it the Gold Lotto and in New South Wales and Southwestern Australia it is simply called the Saturday Lotto. The lottery is drawn every Saturday night at 6:28 p.m. and all one has to do to win is match the correct six numbers from a pool of 1 to 45!

Lottery Security And Results
Australia has a non-partisan lottery committee called Tattersalls that’s been around for over 100 years. The organization monitors all of Australia’s lottery games to make certain the game abides by all local or national terms and conditions. The Saturday Lotto is not as large as other national games such as the Oz Lotto but the payouts are still quite significant. The largest jackpot in Saturday Lotto history was awarded in August 2008 when a small group of players teamed up to win AUS$19 Million!
The very first lottery in Australia was the Saturday Lotto back in 1972. It was televised live on HSV-7 Melbourne. For nearly the past 20 years the Tattslotto has only used odd numbers, which means certain states could use even numbers for their alternate games. This is rather unusual and the result is a larger than expected number of players for a lottery with a jackpot that reaches the tens of millions.
Australia’s Saturday Lotto is just one of several exciting lottery games within the country. The easy to learn game is open to all players over the age of 18 regardless of their country of origin. Like all other Australian lottery games Tattslotto jackpots are awarded in tax-free lump sums which makes the games even more exciting!
