NSW Lotteries Mid-Year Lotto Hotspots revealed!

Thursday 3 July, 2014 - NSW Lotteries has revealed the Mid-Year Lotto Hotspots where the most division one winning entries have been sold to date in 2014!

Between 1 January and 30 June 2014, 56 NSW Lotteries players across NSW and ACT scored division one prizes across all NSW Lotteries lotto products, equating to more than $126.7 million in division one prize money!

The latest statistics released by NSW Lotteries (see tables below) show that South and South West Sydney scored the coveted title of ‘New South Wales’ 2014 Mid-Year Lotto Hotspot Region’, with 14 division one prizes won in the area to date in 2013. The region has also won the highest total prize amount so far in 2014, with more than $38.9 million won in division one across all NSW Lotteries lotto products.

The honour of ‘New South Wales’ 2014 Mid-Year Lotto Hotspot Postcode’ goes to 2111 for Gladesville where three division one lotto prizes worth a total of more than $3.1 million have been won.

The largest lotto prize won in New South Wales so far this year was a $30,000,000 Oz Lotto prize from postcode 2153 for Winston Hill.

The majority of the division one prizes have been won in New South Wales’ favourite lotto game, Saturday Lotto, with 26 prizes won in total.

NSW Lotteries spokesperson Zoe Knobel said it’s important to remember that Lotto Hotspots are the result of a random game of chance.

“It’s great to see so many prizes have gone to NSW Lotteries players in South and South West Sydney so far this year!” Ms Knobel said.

“Players should remember that despite certain areas topping the division one winning lists to date in 2014, it doesn’t mean a ticket purchased in those suburbs has a greater chance of winning.

“Lotto is a random game of chance, and there is no way of predicting where the next winning entry will be sold,” Ms Knobel said.

“But as our division one winners have said, you’ve got to be in it to win it!” she added.
