Mandurah mum is now Set for Life

A single mum from Mandurah was living pay check to pay check until she discovered she was WA's latest Set for Life winner. The winning ticket was purchased through Lotterywest Play Online.

“I’d always dreamed of phoning my parents in the middle of the night with exciting news and I still can’t believe that’s what actually happened!” the lucky mum said. “I was in such disbelief when I checked my Play Online account and saw I’d won. I was holding a cup of coffee and started shaking so much my daughter need to take the mug!”

The winner is mostly excited about the little things she’ll now be able to do like roast dinner each week, the ability to replace a flat tyre if she gets one and have money to feed her family. She’s looking forward to building a family home, buying new mattress for her kids, going on a family holiday, reducing her work hours, further study and fun things for her children like trips to Adventure World and Scitech.

What a way to start the festive season!

This is not the only Division 1 or 1st Prize win sold through Lotterywest Play Online this year with $3M won on Powerball in June.
