National 2015 Mid-Year Lotto Hotspots revealed!

Tuesday 14 July 2015 - Tatts Lotteries has revealed the Mid-Year Lotto Hotspots where the most division one winning entries have been sold to date in 2015!

Between 1 January and 30 June 2015, 188 Tatts Lotteries players scored division one prizes across all Tatts Lotteries national products, equating to more than $412 million in division one prize money!

Tatts Lotteries operates lotto games in Australian jurisdictions including Victoria, New South Wales, ACT, Queensland, South Australia, Tasmania and the Northern Territory.

The latest statistics released by Tatts Lotteries (see tables below) reveal that the coveted title of ‘Tatts Lotteries’ 2015 Mid-Year Lotto Hotspot State’ based on frequency of wins has been awarded to Victoria, where 64 division one winning tickets were sold across all national lotto games, equating to more than $110 million in prize money.

Not to be beaten by its southern rival, New South Wales and the Australian Capital Territory took out the title as the jurisdiction with the highest total value of wins, with 49 first division prizes won equating to more than $205 million.

Lotteries spokesperson Elissa Lewis said that although Victoria has sold more division one winning entries than other jurisdiction, it does not mean that a ticket purchased in that state has more chance of winning than any other ticket.

“It’s exciting to reveal where the most lotto wins occur, but it’s important to remember that every number on your ticket has an equal chance of being drawn, no matter where you buy your ticket,” Ms Lewis said.
