During the weekend two lucky players who play the Saturday Lotto game (see Saturday Lotto results here) won huge prizes that will make them happy and feeling lucky for years to come if they use the money right.
The two lotto players are from Perth Australia and have won almost $1 million AUD each. Each of them bought a ticket from the draw and matched the winning numbers of 5, 1, 39, 45, 28 and 26, each ticket is worth exactly $976,274.19.
The odds of matching all of the numbers in order to win a prize of this size is 1 in 8,145,060. These odds are relatively good odds when comparing them to jackpot winning odds of other popular lotto games from around the world. For example, odds of winning a $1,000,000 prize in the USA Mega Millions or USA Powerball are roughly 1 in 12 million tickets.
But still, 1 in 8 or 12 million are still very hard odds to beat and these two lucky Australia Saturday Lotto players have done exactly this, they have beat the odds and are two of the luckiest people on earth right now. They are both probably out of their minds with joy!
This week on Thursday there is a massive Powerball jackpot of $15,000,000 and on Tuesday there is a huge Oz Lotto jackpot of $20,000,000 – both jackpots are something to look forward to!
