The gift of a winning ticket

It was a gift from a mum to her son, an ex-serviceman, that led one of our latest Saturday Lotto Division 1 winners into an incredible windfall. 

“After being in the defence force for most of his adult life, he starts a new job this week,” the man’s Mother said, “I bought him the Lotto ticket as a good luck gesture and to remind him how proud I am to be his Mum”.

Getting goosebumps yet? We definitely are - especially when we found out his win was a whopping $1.3 million. 

He told us that it didn't quite sink in until he realised there was a winner from Western Australia. His mother kept pointing to the last row on his Slikpik 30... and then it all became clear. He'd won - and he'd won big!
