Where are WA’s missing Lotto winners?

Lotterywest has been eagerly waiting to hear from two of its newest Division 1 Lotto winners, but almost three weeks on, the wait continues.

The first outstanding ticket was sold at Here’s Luck Lottery Centre in Cloverdale on 12 November and the Saturday Lotto prize awaiting its lucky owner is worth $674,350.

The second ticket, sold just over a week ago by Garden City Lottery Centre in Booragoon, holds a $2.1 million OZ Lotto prize.

Lotterywest is encouraging local players who purchased Lotto tickets at these stores to check them for the winning numbers.

“We’re reminding people to double check those secret hiding spots as who knows, they could be WA’s latest multimillionaire!” said Lotterywest spokesperson Pina Compagnone.

Meanwhile, another Australian player has found themselves $20,000 a month richer for the next 20 years after winning 1st Prize in Set for Life overnight.

A family from Bacchus Marsh, who claimed the prize, said they can now go on their dream family holiday just in time for Christmas.

“Oh my god! Oh my god! We’ve been struggling for so long! We’ve had nothing in life and we’ve been to hell and back. Now I feel like the luckiest woman in the world,” said the winner.

“I’ll be able to pay off my debt, and buy a home! That’s actually possible!”

“I’ll get a passport and I’m going! I’ll be able to take my family somewhere we’ve always wanted to go - to the North Pole to see the Northern Lights and visit Santa Claus Village!

Last night’s winner brings the national tally of 1st Prize Set for Life winners to 15 since the game was launched across Australia last year.

WA has delivered more than two million local winners who have shared in Set for Life prizes worth almost $42 million across all Prize Levels. This includes three WA 1st Prize winners.

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