Cairns named a lotto hotspot


Statistically, you've got more of a chance of winning Thursday nights 60 million dollar Powerball prize if you live in the Far North.

Australian Lottery has named Cairns, Earlville and Edge Hill as suburb hotspot for winning tickets.

The Lott spokesperson Matt Hart said there were six division one winners from postcode 4870, last financial year.

"While lottery wins can land anywhere, we do see clusters of division one wins emerge from time-to-time, and these can change from year-to-year as well," Mr Hart said.
