Queensland's 2015 Mid-Year Lotto Hotspots revealed!

Friday 10 July 2015 - After reaching the half-way point of 2015, Golden Casket can reveal where the most division one winning entries have been sold to date this calendar year.

Between 1 January and 30 June 2015, 48 Queensland players scored division one prizes across all Golden Casket lotto products, equating to more than $53 million in division one prize money!

The latest statistics released by Golden Casket (see tables below) show that the Gold Coast scored the coveted title of ‘Queensland’s 2015 Mid-Year Lotto Hotspot Region’, with 13 division one prizes won to date in 2015. 

The honour of ‘Queensland’s 2015 Mid-Year Lotto Hotspot Postcode’ goes to 4211 for Nerang, Pacific Pines and Highland Park where three (3) division one lotto prizes worth a total of more than $4.2 million have been won.

Golden Casket spokesperson Belinda McDougall said it’s important to remember that Lotto Hotspots are the result of a random game of chance.

“Players should remember that despite certain areas topping the division one winning lists to date in 2015, it doesn’t mean a ticket purchased in those suburbs has a greater chance of winning,” Ms McDougall said.

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