You will get a prize claim form which is downloadable, complete it and send it along with the winning tickets in original remembering to keep the copy with you. You will also have to remember to write your name address and signature at the back of the Saturday Lotto ticket.
There is also a time limit to place your claim if you win any jackpot amount which is usually two weeks from the date of the draw. Remember that it takes the time to process your claim and therefore, you should be ready to wait for at least seven to ten working days to receive your claim amount.
