Lucky City! Gold Coast crowned the ‘lotto hotspot’ of 2018

Queensland’s Lotto hotspots have been revealed, with the Gold Coast claiming the crown for the most division one winning entries in 2018!

The Lott revealed the Coast had 18 division one winning entries totalling more than $74 million this year, which included the nation’s biggest single prize of $60 million, which was won by a retired Burleigh Heads man last month.

In the 12 month period, a whopping seven millionaires were created on the Gold Coast alone, together taking home a total prize pool of $67,709,532.89.


Topping the list of the coast’s lottery hotspots was the Southport/Labrador area, which had an amazing four division one winning entries totalling a mind blowing $2,984,776.51.

Burleigh Heads/Burleigh Waters wasn’t far behind, with three division one winning entries totalling $62,006,216.95.

Mermaid Waters/Chevron Island also had three division one winners who took home a total of $2,918,450.15, while Elanora/Palm Beach sold three division one winning entries totalling $2,439,158.00.

Remarkably, The Pines News & Gifts at Elanora sold two of the three division one winning entries in the Elanora postcode.

Golden Casket spokesperson Lauren Cooney said a whopping 41 millionaires were created across Queensland during the 12 month period – the third highest of any Australian state and territory.

“Lottery players in Queensland had an unforgettable start to the year after a pair of Gold Coast grey nomads took home $10 million in Oz Lotto in January, which extended their trip around Australia indefinitely,” she said.

“The winners were one of many millionaires created across Queensland throughout the year, who have had their lives changed forever!

“From overseas holidays and travels around Australia, to new homes and new cars, each ecstatic winner is now enjoying their win with their nearest and dearest.”
