Lotto winners claim prizes in lead up to Double Win Day tomorrow!

A Duncraig couple were second to claim their Division 1 prize of $207,714 from the weekend’s Saturday Lotto draw in which four WA locals took home a Division 1 prize.

The regular players were only fulfilling their weekly Lotto ritual when they purchased their ticket at Carine Glades Lottery Centre in Duncraig not knowing it would soon add them to WA’s exclusive Division 1 winners list.

They checked their winning numbers over breakfast and then checked and rechecked on their phones and the newspaper to cover all angles.

“We’re quite happy, there’s nothing to hold us back now! We can go on a few holidays,” said the couple.

Whilst the winners aren’t planning on doing anything too differently, they will now be able to pay for a family holiday and make retirement easier when that day arrives.

“There aren’t as many restrictions now, we can splash out a bit every now and again,” said the winners.

Lotterywest is still waiting on two other Saturday Lotto Division 1 winners from the weekend to claim their prizes.

WA winner’s tally is now at eight for the year with those Division 1 winners sharing in almost $8 million in prize money.

In other winning news, the nation’s latest Set for Life winner has claimed their 1st Prize of $20,000 per month for the next 20 years.

The winner, a dad from the South Australian Adelaide Hills, has brought Australia’s Set for Life 1st Prize winners tally up to five since the game launched in August 2015.

The dad said he was overwhelmed with the good news and was looking forward to sharing the prize with friends and family.

“My family and friends are important to me, so the first thing that comes to mind is that I will help those people dear to me,” he said.

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.

Duncraig Primary School P&C received an $11,443 Lotterywest Grant in October last year. These funds were used towards the community celebration of the 40th anniversary of the Duncraig Primary School in November.

Double Win Day just one sleep away!

Tomorrow night marks the first Double Win Day of the year with the Wednesday Lotto draw offering local player’s doubled prizes across Divisions 2-6.

For your chance to double your winnings, pick up a ticket in the draw by 6pm tomorrow in-store from Lotterywest retailers, through Play Online or by downloading the Lotterywest App.
