Victoria'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 division one lotto wins have been won in the past twelve months!

Between 1 December 2014 and 30 November 2015, a total of 144 Tatts players across Victoria discovered what it’s like to win division one, equating to more than $200 million in division one prize money won across all Tatts lotto games!

The latest statistics released by Tatts (see tables below) revealed that the coveted title of ‘2015 Tatts’ Lotto Hotspot in Victoria’ was postcode 3429 for Sunbury where the most number of division one winning tickets were sold in 2015 with four wins totalling more than $4.9 million in first division prize money.

The biggest lotto prize in Victoria in the twelve months to 1 December 2015 was the massive $20 million Oz Lotto prize won in April in the Melbourne suburb of Richmond.

Victoria also got a hat trick of division one prizes worth a giant $15 million; an Oz Lotto prize won in June in Mentone, a Powerball prize won in September in Sandringham, and an Oz Lotto prize won in September in Camberwell.

The Melbourne - Southeast region has scored the lucrative title of ‘2015 Tatts’ Lotto Hotspot Region in Victoria’ with 33 division one winning tickets sold in the area in the past twelve months winning more than $66.9 million in division one prize money.

Tatts 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 Tatts Hotspot statistics comes as the countdown begins to TattsLotto’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!

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.
