WA takes home entire $10 million OZ Lotto jackpot

Western Australia has remained on its incredible Lotto winning run, taking home five Division 1 Lotto and 1st Prize wins in just five days; the most recent being the entire$10 million Division 1 OZ Lotto jackpot in last night’s draw.

The winning ticket was the only Division 1 winner from across the nation and was sold at Haynes Good News Agency located in Brookdale (City of Armadale).

The multi-million dollar ticket follows an incredible run of luck in WA over the last five days including a 1st Prize Set for Life winner who will collect $20,000 each month for 20 years, two Saturday Lotto Division 1 wins worth $785,465 and a Super66 Division 1 prize worth $104,763.

Mikaela Thompson from Haynes Good News Agency said excitement levels were high as it was the first Division 1 Lotto ticket the store had sold since opening about five years ago.

“We’re absolutely thrilled and still in a bit of shock. It’s just the most amazing feeling to know that we have changed someone’s life for the better and what a perfect time just before Christmas!” Mikaela said.

Last night, over 31,000 other WA players took home a prize across the other Divisions in the OZ Lotto draw.

WA’s tally of Division 1 Lotto and 1st Prize winners for the year has now reached 83. These winners have shared in almost $137 million.

WA players will have two more chances to win big before the year ends. This Thursday night a $15 million Powerball jackpot will go on offer and then on New Year’s Eve the biggest Saturday Lotto event of the year occurs – the $31 million Megadraw.

Tickets for both games are available from Lotterywest stores, through Lotterywest Play Online or by downloading the Lotterywest App.
