Australia’s luckiest Lotto postcodes and hotspots

Victoria has raked in the largest amount of Lotto prize money for a third year in a row - but Queensland took out the biggest payout.

And despite Victorians snaring the largest amount of cash, the highest number of Lotto millionaires now come from NSW.

New data obtained by News Corp Australia has also revealed where the nation's luckiest Lotto hotspots and postcodes are, including the suburbs in each state and territory where the most division one winning entries are sold.

The data, taken within a 12-month period until November 30 by The Lott, comes less than 20 sleeps until Australia's biggest scheduled $30 million Saturday Lotto Megadraw on December 29, and also reveals the 'hot' and 'cold' numbers drawn over nearly a decade.

Victoria had the most division one wins, with a total of 130 division one winning entries sold, delivering more than $313 million. Lucky postcodes include 3072 for Preston with four wins, followed by six suburbs with a record of three wins including 3138 for Mooroolbark, 3910 for Langwarrin, 3280 for Warrnambool, 3064 for Craigieburn, 3000 for Melbourne CBD and 3023 for Cairnlea, Deer Park.

After analysing numbers drawn from the annual Megadraw since 2009, News Corp can reveal the 'hot' most frequently drawn numbers were 37, 9, 24, 11 and 41. The number 37 is the hottest number that has been drawn four times since 2009.

The 'cold' least frequently drawn numbers were 19, 10, 8, 15 and 26. The number 19 is the coldest has it hasn't been drawn since 2010.

The Lott spokesman Matthew Hart said there was still a chance for players to become a division one winner.

"We are on the countdown to the highly anticipated $30 million Saturday Lotto Megadraw on Saturday December 29. This is the biggest Saturday Lotto event of the year as it's the single draw that creates the most millionaires every year," he said.

"With up to one-in-three adult Australians expected to buy an entry in the $30 Million Megadraw, we are anticipating a surge of interest as we inch closer to the end of the year. Wannabe millionaires are advised to get in early and purchase their entry for the chance to see in the New Year as a millionaire!"
