WA takes home entire $2.1 million OZ Lotto prize

Western Australia’s Lotto luck continued last night after a ticket purchased from Booragoon took out the entire $2.1 million Division 1 prize pool in OZ Lotto.

The winning ticket was purchased from Garden City Lottery Centre and is unclaimed.

It’s the second multi-million dollar winning Lotto ticket sold within the Garden City Shopping Centre this year, after another store in the centre, The Lotto Lottery Centre, sold a $2.1 million Saturday Lotto prize in May.

Owner of the Garden City Lottery Centre, Terry Olds, said over nine years of owning the store he’d produced a few Division 1 winners.

“Every ticket we sell is in with a chance! I think if you treat your customers well and be positive, good things will come back which we’ve just seen firsthand,” he said.

Terry said it was a welcome win and the good news was starting to quickly spread amongst the shopping centre.

Over 18,000 other West Aussies took out a prize in last night’s OZ Lotto draw across the game’s other Divisions.

Last night’s win follows closely behind two local Division 1 wins, each worth $518,125 from the weekend’s Saturday Lotto draw. One of these tickets has been claimed by a north of the river family, while the ticket sold from Paraburdoo Lotteries and News remains unclaimed.

When you play direct with Lotterywest, you’re not only in for a chance to win big, you’re also contributing to raise funds for the WA community.

Last financial year, over $281 million was raised for health, sports, arts and many community groups located across the State.

This includes a Lotterywest grant of $15,000 given to the City of Melville Citizens Relief Fund to provide emergency relief for people in the area experiencing financial hardship.
