Corrigin woman takes out last $750,000 Superdraw prize
For almost four weeks the identity of the Division 1 Lotto winner who purchased their $21 million Saturday Lotto Superdraw ticket from Corrigin Newsagency remained unknown.
Today, a Corrigin woman came forward to claim her $750,000 prize and was the last of WA's eight Superdraw winners in the 5 September draw to enter Lotterywest Head Office.
When asked the reason for the month long wait, the winner said it was because she hadn't a clue she was a Division 1 winner.
"I saw that Corrigin Newsagency had sold a Division 1 winning ticket but it never entered my mind that they'd sold it to me so I just went about my life like normal!" said the woman.
When the winner eventually checked her ticket she phoned Lotterywest to ask what having six numbers meant. Once hearing the positive response, she promptly placed her $750,000 ticket into a safe.
The woman plans to invest her winnings and also hopes to continue her luck in Lotto.
Owner of Corrigin Newsagency Ivor Ebsary said his store's previous Division 1 ticket was sold 12 years ago and was also in a Saturday Lotto draw.
"It would be nice to sell another big winner in the next Superdraw too!" he said.
It's not just WA Lotto winners that benefit from playing Lotterywest Games, so does the local community with 34 cents out of every dollar spent on Lotterywest products being returned to support not-for-profit and charitable groups around WA.
The Shire of Corrigin's Community Resource Centre was a recent recipient of this support with a $15,308 Lotterywest Grant in April. These funds were used towards equipment to support the centre's educational, social and community building activities.
