South Australia's Mid-Year Lotto Hotspots revealed!

Thursday 3 July, 2014 SA 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, 39 South Australian players scored division one prizes across all SA Lotteries lotto products, equating to more than $38.1 million in division one prize money!

The latest statistics released by SA Lotteries (see tables below) show that Northern Adelaide scored the coveted title of ‘South Australia’s 2014 Mid-Year Lotto Hotspot Region’, with 12 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 $12.3 million won in division one across all SA Lotteries lotto products.

The honour of ‘South Australia’s 2014 Mid-Year Lotto Hotspot Postcode’ goes to 5290 for Mount Gambier where three division one lotto prizes worth a total of more than $4.4 million have been won.

The largest lotto prize won in South Australia so far this year was a $5,000,000 Oz Lotto prize from postcode 5094 for Dry Creek.

The majority of the division one prizes have been won in South Australia’s favourite lotto game, Saturday X Lotto, with 29 prizes won in total.

SA 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 SA Lotteries players in Northern Adelaide 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.
