Good things come to those who wait

Whenever you buy a Lotto ticket, does it burn a hole in your pocket until you check it? This is definitely the case for some of our players - we see them jump onto our website, open the app or head in-store to see if they're WA's newest Division 1 winners... and we don't blame them! After all, every Lotto ticket is a chance to dream about all the things you've always wanted to experience.

In early December, a Slikpik 25 for Saturday Lotto was sold by Margaret River Newsagency - and it turned out to be a Division 1 winner worth $785,465!

But it took a whole two weeks before the South West dad who bought the ticket even checked his numbers.

“I saw the sign at the newsagency which said they’d sold a Division 1 winning ticket and had a good feeling it could be me before I even checked my ticket.”

Now that he's officially a winner, he's planning on buying a small acreage to build his dream home, travel around Australia and help his family out. It's another Lotto dream come true! 

What does my money support in WA?

Every year you help Lotterywest make almost 900 grants totalling over $115 million dollars. Which means that you're helping community organisations provide services, support and inspiration to people all over Western Australia. And the best part? All the money that you help give to our community comes from having fun playing the games! So why not pick up a ticket today and keep WA winning?
