Saturday Lotto Games
A Saturday Lotto standard game refers to each standard line of numbers you select for each lotto game. Each standard game of 6 numbers offers you a chance of winning one prize. You can select your own numbers or a QuickPick (auto-fill) for each game.
A system allows you to play more numbers than a standard entry providing you with an entry covering every combination of the numbers you have chosen. This type of entry allows players to increase their chances of winning a prize by playing a wider range of number combinations.
A Super Combo entry lets you play more number combinations than a standard game entry, but does not cover all possible number combinations of a selected set of numbers like a System entry does.
Syndicates give you more chances to win by covering a greater combination of numbers and sharing the cost between the members of a group. Playing more games increases the chance of winning a prize. If the syndicate ticket wins a prize the total prize will be divided equally among all of the members of the syndicate.
