Things in Western Australia are heating up with another lucky local picking up a $1 million Division 1 prize; the latest in last night’s Wednesday Lotto draw.
The win comes only a few nights after WA delivered another million dollar winning ticket in this week’s Monday Lotto draw. The Wednesday Lotto winning ticket was purchased from Bibra Lake News and Lotteries.
WA’s latest run of Lotto luck comes just ahead of a bumper week of Lotto offers with a combined $66 million over the next few days. It all starts tonight with the $35 million Powerball jackpot and then the countdown is on to the $31 million Megadraw on New Year’s Eve.
Owner of Bibra Lake News and Lotteries Rixiang Tian said it was an exciting moment for the store as it was the first Division 1 winner sold there in the three years of owning it.
“We’re so happy, we just can’t believe it! To have made one of our customers a million dollars richer is the best feeling,” he said.
Mr Tian said he was getting ready for a busy day ahead with only hours left until tonight’s $35 million Powerball jackpot.
Lotterywest confirmed retailers were set for a big day with ticket sales peaking between 4pm and 5pm today.
“During our busiest hour around 425 tickets will be purchased each minute, so we encourage players to get their tickets early to avoid the afternoon rush,” said Lotterywest spokesperson Pina Compagnone.
Tickets for tonight’s jackpot are available in-store, through Lotterywest Play Online or the Lotterywest App until 6pm.
Meanwhile WA players will have an extra hour to pick up their tickets in the $31 million Megadraw with a 7pm draw close off on New Year’s Eve.
When you play with Lotterywest everyone wins with money going back to players in prizes and to the WA community.
Tonight’s Powerball jackpot and the Megadraw are set to raise a combined $7.5 million for the WA community.
