Bay couple's $70 million biggest lotto win in Aus this year
IS HERVEY Bay the luckiest place in Australia?
Stats released by 'The Lott' show the biggest lotto prize won in Australia in the last year was the mind-blowing $70 million Powerball prize won in January by a couple from Pialba.
While three other Aussies were lucky enough to win $40 million this year, nothing could top the massive prize taken home by the Hervey Bay grandparents.
If you are thinking of picking up a lotto ticket, it may be worth the three-hour drive up to Gladstone; as this year's stats show the 4680 postcode is a "lotto hotspot".
