The OZ Saturday Lotto Game – How did it all start?
The Oz Saturday Lotto Game has changed numerous times and under different names too. In the past, it was formerly known as TattsLotto in the Northern Territories of Australia, it was called Gold Lotto in Queensland, X Lotto in South Australia and then it became known as Saturday Lotto in Western Australia. To say that it has gone round the regions of Australia won’t be an understatement.
