Tasmania's 2015 Lotto Hotspots revealed!

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

The Apple Isle has had a bumper year between 1 December 2014 and 30 November 2015 with a total of 12 players in Tasmania discovering what it’s like to win division one, equating to more than $8.2 million in division one prize money won across all Tatts lotto games!

This is more than double the division one wins in the same twelve month period last year (between 1 December 2013 and 30 November 2014) which saw five players in Tasmania win a division one prize.

The latest statistics released by Tatts (see tables below) revealed that the coveted title of ‘2015 Tatts’ Lotto Hotspot in Tasmania’ was postcode 7253 for George Town where the most number of division one winning tickets were sold in 2015 with two wins totalling more than $1.8 million in first division prize money.

It was the same outlet that sold two division one winning entries within the 12 month period. NewsXpress George Town, at Shop 1, 83 Macquarie Street in George Town sold a TattsLotto prize worth more than $833,000 in May and a TattsLotto prize worth $1 million in October.

The biggest lotto prize in the Tasmania in the twelve months to 1 December 2015 was a $1.2 million TattsLotto prize won in Launceston in August.

In the battle between north and south Tasmania, North Tasmania came out on top scoring the lucrative title of ‘2015 Tatts Lotto Hotspot region in Tasmania’ with seven division one wins worth more than $5 million in total division one prize money, compared to five in the south totalling more than $3.2 million.

Tatts spokesperson Claire Taylor said while it’s great to crunch the numbers and see where the division one wins landed in 2015, it doesn’t mean a ticket purchased in those suburbs or outlet 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 Tatts Hotspot statistics comes as the countdown begins to TattsLotto’s $30 Million Megadraw on 2 January 2016! Imagine what you could cross off on your New Year’s Resolution List if you won a share of $30 million!

Tatts is expecting a lot of interest in TattsLotto’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.

Tatts customers are encouraged to register their entries to a Tatts 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.
