Tatts spokeswoman Elissa Lewis said the Saturday lotto rise was the first in 3½ years, and the sixth in 33 years. “It’s really to maintain the sustainability of the game,” Ms Lewis said. “Prize amounts have also gone up. Divisions two to six are expected to increase by up to 8.3 per cent. “Every registered customer was advised and notices were placed in outlets.” The decision follows a 10c-per-game Powerball price increase last March.
