South Australia's 2015 Lotto Hotspots revealed!

Wednesday 16 December 2015 - It’s that time of the year when SA Lotteries makes its own list and checks it twice to find out where all the division one lotto wins have landed in the past twelve months!

Between 1 December 2014 and 30 November 2015, a total of 41 lottery players across South Australia discovered what it’s like to win division one, equating to more than $42.7 million in division one prize money won across all SA Lotteries lotto games!

The latest statistics released by SA Lotteries (see tables below) revealed that the coveted title of ‘2015 SA Lotteries Lotto Hotspot’ was postcode 5000 for Adelaide where the most number of division one winning tickets were sold in 2015 with three wins totalling more than $2.6 million in first division prize money.

The biggest lotto prize in South Australia in the twelve months to 1 December 2015 was the $2.2 million Saturday X Lotto first division prize from the February Superdraw won by two winning entries sold in West Lakes and Whyalla Playford.

Northern Adelaide region has the lucrative title of ‘2015 SA Lotteries Lotto Hotspot Region’ with 10 division one winning tickets sold in the area in the past twelve months winning more than $9.7 million in division one prize money.

SA Lotteries spokesperson Claire Taylor said while it’s great to crunch the numbers and see where the division one wins were won in 2015, it doesn’t mean a ticket purchased in those suburbs has a greater chance of winning than any other ticket.

“While some people are superstitious in deciding where they will purchase their entries from, it is important for players to remember that lotto is a random game of chance,” Ms Taylor explained.

“Regardless of where a ticket is purchased, every number on every ticket has an equal chance of being drawn.”

The highly anticipated release of the 2015 SA Lotteries Hotspot Data comes as the countdown begins to Saturday X Lotto’s $30 Million Megadraw on 2 January 2016! Imagine what you could include on your New Year’s Resolution List if you won a share of $30 million!

SA Lotteries is expecting a lot of interest in Saturday X Lotto’s $30 Million Megadraw, so customers are advised to get in early and purchase their entry for the chance to start 2016 with a bang and a share in the massive $30 million division one prize pool.

SA Lotteries customers are encouraged to register their entries to an Easiplay Club card. Not only does registration ensure their prize is secure, it also ensures they can be contacted directly with news of a division one win.
