Friday 3 January, 2014 - The countdown to one of Saturday Lotto’s biggest events of the year, the $30 Million Megadraw is almost here with only hours left to secure your chance to start the New Year off with a bang with a share in the $30 Million Megadraw!
NSW Lotteries spokesperson Belinda McDougall said by the close of selling at 7.30pm tomorrow, Saturday 4 January, NSW Lotteries anticipates that the equivalent of 40 per cent of adults in New South Wales will have a ticket in one of the biggest Saturday Lotto draws of the year.
“The $30 Million Megadraw is one of Saturday Lotto’s most highly anticipated annual events so our advice to players is to purchase their ticket early to avoid disappointment,” Ms McDougall said.
“Around two million tickets will be purchased on Saturday, the day of the draw, with the busiest period anticipated to be between 11am and 12 noon so to avoid missing out, players should purchase their entry as early as possible.
“Players have the choice of picking their own numbers or playing a QuickPick entry type, where the lottery terminal randomly selects numbers for you. The most popular entry type is a Mega QuickPick costing just $15.75.
“Don’t forget to register your Megadraw ticket to your Players Club card to ensure NSW Lotteries can contact you should you be one of the division one winners.
“Last year, 21 Australians began 2013 as winners, each scoring $1.4 million in Saturday Lotto’s $30 Million Megadraw. Four of those tickets were purchased in New South Wales, so we hope to see many more Megadraw winners in the state on 4 January,” Ms McDougall said.
Tickets in the $30 Million Megadraw on Saturday 4 January 2014 are now on sale from all NSW Lotteries retail outlets and online from Tatts.com.
