Your chance to share in $30 million is almost here!

Friday 2 January 2015 - 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 customers have been queuing at outlets around the state to purchase an entry as they dream about how nice their 2015 would be if they won a share in $30 million!

“In 2014 three Saturday Lotto entries won a division one prize of $1,428,571.43. One division one winning woman from Sydney told NSW Lotteries she had to keep pinching herself to make sure it was real. The winner said she planned to kickstart her 2014 by buying herself a home.

“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.

“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 $17.05.”

Ms McDougall added she hopes players have kept their Saturday Lotto Megadraw tickets safe and will come forward to claim their prizes as soon as possible.

“Two NSW winners from previous Saturday Lotto Megadraws on 31 December 2010 and 4 January 2014 are both yet to claim their $1.6 million and $1.4 million prize!” Ms McDougall said.

“In the New Year’s Eve Megadraw three years ago, a division one prize of $1,631,578.95 was won in Saturday Lotto Megadraw 3073 on 31 December 2010.

The ticket was not registered to a Players Club card and was purchased from NewsXpress Castle Towers (now trading as Nextra Castle Towers), Shop 268 on Level 2 at 6 - 14 Castle Street in Castle Hill.

“More recently, a division one prize of $1,428,571.43 was won in Saturday Lotto’s $30 Million Megadraw 3387 on 4 January 2014. The ticket was not registered and was purchased from Office N News, Shop 1 in Gladesville Shopping Centre, Flagstaff Street in Gladesville.

“Don’t forget to register your Saturday Lotto 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 2014 as winners, each scoring $1.4 million in Saturday Lotto’s $30 Million Megadraw. We hope to see many more Megadraw winners in the state on 3 January,” Ms McDougall said.

Tickets in the $30 Million Megadraw on Saturday 3 January 2015 are now on sale from all NSW Lotteries outlets and online from Tatts.com. Join the celebration and grab your entry today!
