Two weeks later, South West father claims Lotto prize

Better two weeks late than never! A father from the South West has just collected a $785,465 Division 1 Saturday Lotto prize, almost two weeks after the draw.

The man purchased his winning ticket at Margaret River Newsagency and even when he thought he might be the winner, he didn’t check his ticket.

“I saw the sign at the newsagency which said they’d sold a Division 1 winning ticket and had a good feeling it could be me before I even checked my ticket,” said the father.

“A few days went by before I decided to check it and when I got to line 20 I thought I mustn’t have won but then I saw I had it on line 22!”

The new Division 1 Lotto winner said he now plans to buy a small acreage and build his dream home, travel around Australia, help his family and be financially comfortable.

“It had been tough but I was slowly starting to get ahead in life so this win is just mind boggling.”

Your chance to win $25 million tonight and MEGA big next Saturday!

You could turn some of your Lotto dreams into realities just like this South West father if you won a slice of tonight's $25 million Powerball jackpot and the $31 million Saturday Lotto Megadraw on New Year’s Eve!

Tickets for both draws can be purchased in-store, through Lotterywest Play Online or the Lotterywest App.

It’s not only WA’s Lotto winners who benefit when you play with Lotterywest, the local community benefits too with over $281 million going back to support WA last financial year.

Margaret River and Districts Historical Society Incorporated received the benefits of those who play Lotterywest games with a $4,000 Lotterywest grant last month. These funds will be used towards conservation works to the old Bramley School building, supporting the preservation and promotion of local cultural heritage.
