South West proves State's country Lotto hot spot
The South West has continued on its Lotto winning journey, with another Division One ticket worth over $600,000 sold in the region from the weekend's Saturday Lotto draw.
The winning ticket was sold at Manjimup Newsagency and brings the number of 2010 Division One tickets sold in the South West to nine. These winners have shared in over $7 million.
Owner of Manjimup Newsagency Darren East said the win had generated lots of excitement amongst the small town.
"There is certainly a bit of a buzz in the community. It's great news with everyone coming down to see if they have the winning ticket," Mr East said.
"We are definitely on a roll in the South West and I think we're going to sell another one in this Saturday's $20 million Superdraw."
Mr East said the weekend win had bought the number of Division One tickets sold at his outlet to eight in 11 years.
