Second WA player in just two nights to become Set for Life

Western Australia has welcomed another 1st Prize Set for Life winner overnight; the second in just three nights.

The winning ticket was sold at The Lucky Charm Newsagency Baldivis and is set to deliver the winner an incredible $20,000 each month for the next 20 years.

Last night’s win follows hot off the heels of a WA 1st Prize winner from Sunday night’s draw. Both winning tickets have not been claimed.

Lotterywest CEO Paul Andrew said this was an exciting moment for WA Lotto players.

"We are absolutely thrilled with the news which I'm sure is set to create anticipation across the State," he said.
"WA keeps showing time and time again just how lucky in Lotto it is; this time producing two 1st Prize winners in just two nights."
"It's incredible news which will certainly set another WA player up for life!"
The State’s Division 1 Lotto and 1st Prize winners tally has reached a combined 39 for the year. These winners have shared in $83 million worth of prizes.

Since Set for Life was launched across Australia in August last year, there has been 11 1st Prize winners – three of these from WA.

Set for Life draws take place every night of the week. If won, there are up to four guaranteed 1st Prizes of $20,000 a month for 20 years. The entire prize is tax free.

OZ Lotto leaps to $40 million

After no one in the nation was once again able to match last night’s OZ Lotto winning numbers, the game has jackpotted to $40 million. The jackpot offer is the game’s equal largest for the year.

OZ Lotto last reached this jackpot amount in March when WA took home the entire $40 million prize. The winning ticket was sold at Harvey Newsagency and claimed by a struggling family living in the South West region.

Although there were no Division 1 winners from last night’s jackpot draw, more than 78,000 WA players picked up a prize, including one lucky local who collected a Division 2 prize worth almost $35,000. The Division 2 ticket was sold at E E Hambley Pty Ltd located in Queens Park.

Tickets for next week’s $40 million OZ Lotto jackpot are available until 6pm Tuesday in-store from Lotterywest retailers, through Play Online, or by downloading the Lotterywest App.

When WA players purchase Lotterywest Games they are helping to raise funds for WA, with a third of money spent on tickets supporting the WA community. Over the OZ Lotto jackpot roll, more than $4 million has been raised for WA.
