South Perth syndicate share in $4.2 million Superdraw win

One of Western Australia’s $4.2 million Division 1 winning tickets from the weekend has been revealed as a 10 member syndicate.

The syndicate was created and sold by Vaucluse Newsagency in South Perth and will deliver each member almost $431,000.

It was one of two Division 1 winners from WA in Saturday night’s $21 million Superdraw. The second ticket, which remains unclaimed, was sold at Canning Vale Newsagency.

Owner of the South Perth store Angela Misackovski said it was a case of new owners, new luck after taking ownership of the store less than six months ago.

“It’s an incredible result but we just had this feeling we were going to have a big win,” she said.

“I can’t describe how wonderful it is to know you’ve made not only one but 10 of your customers Division 1 Lotto winners.”

One of the syndicate members, a man in his 50s from Bunbury, wasted no time coming forward to claim his prize today.

The self-proclaimed workhorse who works in construction was hoping to take some time off and go on a holiday.

“I’ve been slogging it out for a long time,” he said.

“I’m yet to celebrate but I plan to have a pint or two over dinner. Almost half a million dollars is definitely beer worthy.”

Excitement continues this week as WA players have the chance to double their prizes in tonight’s Monday Lotto draw and then again in Wednesday night’s Lotto draw.

The Double Win Day promotion will ‘double’ prizes in Divisions 2 to 6.

Tickets are available from Lotterywest in-store, through Play Online or by downloading the app. Punters have until 6pm on draw day to purchase their tickets.

When you play with Lotterywest – all of WA wins with about a third of money spent on Lotterywest games returned to support the WA community.

Last year the Perth Zoo Docent Association received a $340,000 Lotterywest grant to help with upgrading amenities for the group who provide a range of volunteer services at the Perth Zoo.
