Sydneysiders can call themselves the luckiest people in Australia, with five suburbs listed in Australia’s top ten lottery hotspots.
The latest data from Australian operator The Lottery Office has revealed Oatlands and Pennant Hills in New South Wales and Western Australian suburb Karratha are the top three luckiest suburbs to win big in their international mega jackpots.
The Lottery Office CEO Jaclyn Wood said was unsurprised to see New South Wales in the top two.
“We have had two very lucky winners boosting the average amount won for both Oatlands and Pennant Hills in the last year. One lucky player walked away with Australia’s largest payout from an online-only lottery provider ever,” Ms wood said.
“The Oatlands winner was one number short of claiming a $170 million division 1 prize in USA Power Lotto. His win was boosted because he accidentally selected a multiplier game for an extra $3.45, which doubled his division 2 base prize of $828,000!”
“You’ve got zero chance of winning if you haven’t got a ticket,” Ms Wood said.
The Lottery Office is an Australian-owned provider and holds the appropriate licence to offer Aussies the chance to win from international draws and donates a percentage of the cost of every ticket sold to charities across the country, allowing the organisation to help the lives of everyday Australians.
“We’re Australia’s ticket to the world’s largest official lotteries. When Australians purchase tickets in our lotteries, we purchase a matching ticket in the overseas draw and when one of our customers win, we pay them the exact amount of the winnings we collect from the overseas lottery ticket,” Ms Wood said.
“Not only are we providing a legitimate service with the required consumer safeguards to protect our players, we work to make a positive impact on the lives of everyday Australians by donating a percentage of ticket sales to local charities.”
