Posted: 7am 15 Dec 2020

The Moreton Bay Region has topped $13 million in major Division One, first prize Lotteries, Scratch-Its and Keno wins this year … so far!

With three weeks of 2020 remaining, our region has had eight major Division One and lottery winners ranging from $100,000 to $4.8 million for a total of $10,610,533.77.

The $4.8 million in Kippa-Ring is our region’s single biggest single win this year. It was preceded by $1 million sold at Strathpine, $100,000 and $1,104,264.47 in Rothwell.

Windfall

Four have been since July ranging from $200,000 in Caboolture to $2 million at Redcliffe where the winners took four days to discover their windfall!

There have been five big Instant Scratch-Its winners since July with prizes going from $10,000 in Caboolture to $260,000 on Bribie Island taking the region’s total to $655,000.

Moreton Bay Region also had a big Keno 10 Spot win - one punter landing $1,784,138.40 at Norths Leagues and Services Club in Kallangur.

Lucky seven

“It’s certainly been a winning 2020 for Moreton Bay lottery players with seven division one and first prize lottery wins landing in the region so far this year,” says The Lott spokesperson Lauren Cooney.

“The year isn’t over yet and we may still see more lottery wins fall in the area. We’ll be starting 2021 with a bang thanks to Saturday Lotto’s $30 million Megadraw on January 2.”

Nationally, in the number of Division One wins from December 1, 2019 and November 30, 2020, Queensland is ranked third with 104 totalling $300,679,352.92. Victoria leads with 134, New South Wales/ACT 107.

Millionaires

We are also third in the list of most millionaires created during the same period with 54 to NSW/ACT 79 and Victoria 65.

The luckiest postcode in Queensland is 4870 in Cairns with six Division One winners totalling $6.2 million. Carrara/Narang, North Rockhampton and Caloundra had three, all of which were sold at Caloundra Newsagency!
