Gosnells winner claims Division One prize ahead of tonight's $30 million jackpot
As Western Australia counts down to tonight's $30 million OZ Lotto draw, a Gosnells couple in their 60s have come forward to claim their $666,666 Saturday Lotto Division One prize from the weekend.
The couple, who won on a Systems 7 ticket which cost just $4.20, also scooped Division Three six times bringing their total prize winnings to just over $671,000.
The couple said they checked their ticket about 100 times in 48 hours and were in total disbelief when they realised they were big winners.
"My whole body just went numb, it was an unreal feeling," the man said.
"I was so excited. This ticket is worth 50 odd years of hard work and hope.
"The prize money will help us to contemplate early retirement and pay off some bills. We will also share some of it with close family."
The regular Lotto players purchased their winning ticket from Good Fortune Lottery Centre in Maddington.
They were one of two Western Australian Division One winners in the draw.
Lotterywest is still waiting to hear from the draw's other Division One winner. The winning ticket was sold at Shepherd's News in Fremantle.
