Two more weekend winners add to WA’s Division 1 Lotto tally

Two weekend winners will add their names to Western Australia’s exclusive Division 1 winners list after each collecting a $408,302 Saturday Lotto prize.

The winning tickets were purchased from DJ’s Lucky Lottery in Hillarys and Leeming Lottery Centre and Newsagency and were amongst 10 across Australia to share in the Division 1 prize pool.

David Humphry, owner of DJ’s Lucky Lottery, was overjoyed with the news that his store had sold yet another winning Lotto ticket.

“It’s very exciting! This marks our ninth Division 1 winner which isn’t bad for 13 and a half years work,” said David.

“We’ve got luck in our name and always give our customers good service. I know there are more winners to come!”

Over at Leeming Lottery Centre and Newsagency, the owner Colin Doyle has been spreading the news of the win at his store.

“It’s been a long time coming for us so we’re making sure all our customers know and check their tickets,” said Colin.

“Winning this prize is a chance for someone to realise their dreams. It’s a great amount to really take the pressure off.”

The weekend’s Lotto luck has brought WA’s Division 1 winner’s tally up to 52 for the year. The lucky local winners have shared in almost $97 million in prizes.

Lotterywest is waiting to hear from WA’s newest Lotto winners.

It’s not just Lotto winners that benefit from Lotterywest Games, with Lotterywest directly distributing money raised from its lottery products back to the WA community to support not-for-profit organisations.

Local groups to receive this support include the Whitfords Rainbow Toy Library Incorporated in Hillarys which received a $6,750 Lotterywest Grant in May towards equipment to support the group to provide fun and educational play experiences for children aged between zero and six.

OZ Lotto has jackpotted to $20 million tomorrow night!

OZ Lotto is offering a $20 million jackpot tomorrow night giving WA players the chance to score a slice of the Division 1 prize.
