What Is a Megadraw?

Unlike Superdraws which occur regularly throughout the year, a Megadraw is a one-off jackpot event that's normally held only once a year. Megadraws usually occur on the first Saturday after Christmas, however Megadraws have also been held in June and July in years past. Megadraw Jackpots are usually around $30 million.
