The Lotto Megadraw that has created more millionaires in a single night than any other draw is due to kick off the new year with a bang.

Up to one-in-three Australians are expected to have their hands on a ticket in the weekend’s Saturday Lotto $30 Million Megadraw as they vie for the chance to start 2021 with a bigger bank account.

Last year there were 312 Saturday Lotto division one winners across Australia who pocketed more than $355 million in prize money. Victorian players enjoyed 103 wins, while Queensland had 62 and NSW and the ACT had 58.
