City store's lucky charms produce Division 1 Soccer Pools winner

6 July 2015

Someone in WA will find themselves $228,180 richer after buying a Soccer Pools ticket at Forrest Chase International News in Perth which won Division 1 on the weekend.

Owner of the store, Peter Tan said the win may be due to all their lucky charms in-store that customers have gifted them over the past 18 years.

"You name it, we've got it! Lucky cats, dogs, Buddha's and more. Mostly given to us as gifts from our customers," said Peter.

Being in such a central City location the guessing game has begun as to the identity of the winner.

"The new Soccer Pools winner could be anyone. Maybe a tourist passing through, someone who works in the City or one of our regulars. Only time will tell," said Peter.

The owner said the win marks number five on their Division 1 winners list and plans to tell anyone who will listen of their great news.

"We're going to tell everyone, whoever comes in is going to know about our great luck and hopefully we can keep it going in this Wednesday Lotto's Double Win Day event," said Peter.

It's not just good news for WA winners following a Lotto draw, with the local community benefiting from funds raised.

Lotterywest has broken records in the 2014/15 financial year, announcing $283 million has been raised for the WA community.
