Four happy weekend Lotto winners in WA

Western Australian Lotto players will be rejoicing with the weekend bringing in four new Division 1 winners.

Each winner will take home a $207,714 prize from their Saturday Lotto ticket purchased at:

  • Coolibah News & Video Network in Greenwood
  • Kingsley Newsagency 
  • Carine Glades Lottery Centre in Duncraig
  • Nightingales Pharmacy & Newsagency Kalamunda

A couple from Kingsley who purchased their winning ticket at Kingsley Newsagency have already been in to Lotterywest Head Office to claim their Division 1 prize.

They said they didn’t sleep well the night they found out their exciting news because they were worried they might lose the ticket.

“We’re so happy and just can’t believe it. We usually win about $14 but this is much better!” said the winners.

With the help of their prize money the couple said they now have additional spending money for their upcoming holiday, will be able to purchase a new car, invest and set money aside for their future.

“Nothing will change with what we do now but our win will certainly make things easier,” said the couple.

Lotterywest is still awaiting contact from WA’s three other weekend Division 1 winners.

Australia welcomes another 1st Prize Set for Life winner

Australia has welcomed another Set for Life 1st Prize winner last night. The winning ticket is from South Australia.

Set for Life’s latest 1st Prize winner will take home $20,000 every month for the next 20 years. It’s the fifth 1st Prize winner since the game launched in August 2015.

A further 3,859 WA players collected a Set for Life Prize last night across the other Prize Levels. It was only less than three months ago that WA struck 1st Prize in the game after a Perth family purchased their winning ticket from Brentwood Village News.

WA players can purchase Set for Life tickets by 7pm every night of the week in-store from Lotterywest retailers, through Play Online at www.lotterywest.wa.gov.au or by downloading the Lotterywest App.

Set for Life is the first and only national Lotto game to be drawn every night of the week.

It’s not only WA’s Lotto winners who benefit following a draw, the local community benefits too with 34 cents out of every dollar spent on Lotterywest Games going back to support the WA community.

Community Vision Incorporated in Kingsley received a $1,460 Lotterywest Grant in December thanks to those who play Lotterywest Games. These funds will be used towards equipment and furniture to support an individual with a disability moving into supported accommodation for the first time.
