WA delivers 1st Prize Set for Life winner

WA’s week of Lotto luck has continued, with a local player scoring the 1st Prize across Australia in tonight’s Set for Life draw. The lucky winner is set to take home $20,000 each month for the next 20 years.

WA’s winning ticket was sold through Lotterywest Play Online and has brought the tally of national Set for Life winners to 16 since the game was launched in August last year – four of these winners are from WA.

Tonight’s win follows a run of good luck in WA this week. Last weekend saw two local players each take home Division 1 Saturday Lotto prizes worth almost $675,000; then in Monday Lotto’s draw a WA player was the sole Division 1 winner of a $1 million prize.

Lotterywest spokesperson Pina Compagnone said tonight’s win had contributed to WA’s fast growing tally of Division 1 Lotto and 1st Prize winners.

“Our tally for the year has now reached 78 and these winners have shared in almost $125 million worth of prize money. There seems to be quite a bit of luck in the West at the moment so we’re hoping WA's tally will grow even higher before the year ends,” said Ms Compagnone.

More than 4,000 other WA players picked up a Set for Life prize tonight in the game’s other Prize Levels. This has contributed to the more than two million local winners who have shared in Set for Life prizes worth almost $42 million since the game was launched.

WA players’ next chance to win big is in the $31 million Saturday Lotto Megadraw which will take place on New Year’s Eve. Tickets can be purchased in-store at Lotterywest stores, through Lotterywest Play Online or by downloading the Lotterywest App.

When you play with Lotterywest, all of WA wins with over $281 million going back to support the local community last financial year.
