Victoria's 2015 Mid-Year Lotto Hotspots revealed!

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

Between 1 January and 30 June 2015, 67 Victorian players scored division one prizes across all Tatts lotto products, equating to more than $112 million in division one prize money!

The latest statistics released by Tatts (see tables below) show that Melbourne’s Southeast suburbs scored the coveted title of ‘Victoria’s 2015 Mid-Year Lotto Hotspot Region’, with 16 division one prizes won in the area to date in 2015. The region has also won the highest total prize amount so far in 2015, with more than $34 million won in division one across all Tatts lotto products.

The honour of ‘Victoria’s 2015 Mid-Year Lotto Hotspot Postcode’ was a two way tie (see table below), however top honours went to the postcode 3153 for Bayswater and Bayswater North streaking ahead with the highest total division one lotto prize amount of more than $2 million.

The biggest lotto prize won in Victoria so far this year was a massive $20 million Oz Lotto prize from postcode 3121 for Richmond. Hot on Richmond’s heels for the title of biggest lotto prize was postcode 3194 for Mentone with a giant $15 million Oz Lotto prize.

Tatts spokesperson Claire Taylor 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 Tatts players in Melbourne’s Southeast suburbs so far this year,” Ms Taylor said.

“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.

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

“But as our division one winners have said, you’ve got to be in it to win it!” she added.
