The Saturday Lotto was eventually sold in all of the country’s territories however known by different names in the respected region.  In Victoria, Tasmania, Australian Capital Territory, and the Northern Territory it is known as the Tattslotto; in Queensland it’s known as the Gold Lotto, in South Australia the X Lotto, and in New South Wales and Western Australia it goes by the Lotto or the Saturday Lotto.

After several variations the modern Saturday Lotto known and played today is different from previous versions that had players picking six numbers between one and forty and a bonus number which both the regular and bonus numbers were drawn from the same set of balls.  In 1985 this was changed to players choosing 6/45 and a second bonus number that would create new prize categories and different ways to win.
