Lucky City! The Gold Coast dubbed a ‘lotto hotspot’ in 2017

Queensland’s Lotto hotspots have been revealed – and the lucky people purchasing their lottery tickets on the iconic Gold Coast were among the most fortunate in 2017!

The Lott revealed the coast sold the most amount of division one winning entries, with 13 winners taking home a whopping total of $9,041,353.26.

Far north Queensland locals won the most amount of prize money however, with 9 people sharing $64,381,194.94.


On the Gold Coast – Surfers Paradise, Bundall and Runaway Bay were the suburb hot spots which sold 4 division one winning entries totaling $1,406,025.18 over the past 12 months.

Springwood, just north of the coast, also sold 4 division one winning entries totalling $27,497,085.80.

Golden Casket spokesperson Matt Hart said 2017 will long be remembered by many as a year of big wins for lottery players across Queensland.

“From truck drivers to teachers, retirees to retail workers, each division one winner had a unique story to tell about what their windfall meant to them and their loved ones,” he said.

“While it’s exciting to reveal where the most lotto wins occur, it’s important to remember that lottery games are entertaining games of chance and every number on your ticket has an equal chance of being drawn, no matter where you buy your ticket.

“We’ve seen clusters of division one wins in certain areas in each state, these vary from year to year and in 2017 we’ve seen division one wins land far and wide across Queensland in both metropolitan and regional areas.”
