As WA’s weekend temperature rose, so did its Lotto count!

Not only was it a scorching weekend of weather in WA, it was also a hot one for local Lotto players with three new Division 1 winners and a 1st Prize Set for Life winner all delivered in the span of just two days.

The weekend began with WA’s fourth Set for Life 1st Prize winner on Friday night and continued with two Saturday Lotto winners and a Super66 winner on Saturday night.

WA’s Saturday Lotto Division 1 winning tickets, each worth $785,465, were sold at Dog Swamp Newsagency in Yokine and Margaret River Newsagency. The Super66 Division 1 prize, worth $104,763, was purchased at Woodvale Boulevard Newsagency.

Tom Salvarinov, owner of Dog Swamp Newsagency in Yokine, said he’s had his store for nearly 30 years and still enjoys bringing smiles to customer’s faces when he sells them winning tickets.

“I get more excited every time I sell a Division 1 winner and after almost 30 years I’ve sold quite a few. Last year I sold two in just over two months!” said Tom.

Margaret River Newsagency are equally as excited to have sold WA’s other Saturday Lotto winner.

“We used to average around one Division 1 winner every two years, so we had been telling our customers we were overdue. It’s wonderful that the drought has broken,” said owner of Margaret River Newsagency, Tanya Wagner.

“I take my dog Marley to work every day and people rub their tickets on her to bring them good luck. Sometimes people even get her to choose their tickets so it would be amazing if Marley picked the winner for this lucky person!”

Lotterywest is waiting to hear from the State’s four newest Lotto winners.

Countdown to New Year’s Eve $31 million Megadraw is on!

WA’s recent run of winners could be a sign of more good things to come in the $31 million Saturday Lotto Megadraw which will take place on New Year’s Eve.

Tickets can be purchased in-store at Lotterywest stores, through Lotterywest Play Online or by downloading the Lotterywest App.

When you play with Lotterywest, all of WA wins. Last financial year over $281 million was raised for the WA community thanks to the support of local players.
