All aboard! Carlisle woman set to cruise through Lotto win
A Carlisle woman in her 80s, who claimed her Saturday Lotto fortune from the weekend of over $1.4 million, said she had a strong feeling she was going to win Lotto.
The woman learnt of her new millionaire status, after watching the live telecast draw on Saturday night.
"Over the last six weeks I have had this feeling that I was going to win Lotto. Each Saturday I would think, it's my turn tonight," she said.
"I even said to my granddaughter, if I win Lotto tonight I'll get you a present, and then I did.
"I was still a bit shocked when I first crossed off the six winning numbers but strangely my heart didn't pound too hard and I was quite calm."
The regular Lotto player purchased her 18 game Slikpik from Here's Luck Lottery Centre in Cloverdale.
It's the second Division One ticket the outlet has sold in two months, following the sale of a $1 million Division One ticket in the July $20 million Saturday Lotto Superdraw.
The woman said other plans for her $1.4 million prize, included sharing it with family and travelling overseas.
"There are a few things I have not got around to doing in my life, like a bit more travelling. Now I can do those things," she said.
"I might even head on a luxurious cruise aboard Queen Elizabeth II, as that's something I've always wanted to do."
With Lotto players investing in their favourite game, 33 cents in every dollar spent on Lotterywest products is returned to the WA community to benefit health, sports, the arts and not-for-profit organisations.
Last year, the Carlisle Food Centre, benefited from a $16,510 Lotterywest grant to help provide low cost food to pensioners in the area.
