More chances to win in Saturday Lotto … but there’s a catch
Saturday Lotto is changing as of tomorrow with a larger Division One prize and the chances of winning any prize improving from 1-in-86 to 1-in-42, based on one game.
Players will only need three winning numbers to win Division Six. Players previously needed 1 or 2 winning numbers plus 2 supplementary numbers.
Lotterywest say that the changes were in response to national research conducted by the Australian Lotto Bloc.
To support the changes there will be a price increase of 10 cents, plus retailer commission, per game.
Lotterywest spokesperson Pina Compagnone says we will be seeing thousands more WA winners after every draw.
