Hottest WA locations to pick up your last minute $22 million Superdraw ticket

16 June 2016

Lotto excitement is peaking in WA with only two more sleeps left until the $22 million Saturday Lotto Superdraw.

With 830,000 tickets expected to be sold in WA for the draw, players are certainly hoping to ‘be in it to win it’.

The suburb of Morley has proven to be luckiest area for Lotto players to pick up a winning ticket with four Division 1 winners being sold this financial year. This includes an incredible $30 million ticket sold by Galleria News.

Albany, Geraldton and the Perth CDB are equal second in the hot spot ranking this financial year each selling three Division 1 winning tickets.

Gregory Hopkins, owner of Clark’s Newsagency in Albany, has said since selling a $2.1 million winning Division 1 ticket in the May Superdraw there have been a lot of people in his store asking for more winning Lotto tickets.

“It always gets busier in the lead up to a Superdraw and by Saturday we’ll be packed! We’ve had queues out the door before,” said Gregory.

“It’s great to be part of a Lotto win and I think we’ll sell another big one this weekend. It’s the power of positive thinking that has seen us sell so many winners!”

During retailer’s busiest hour on Saturday, it’s expected that 635 Superdraw tickets will be printed every minute.

There’s still time to buy a ticket for the Superdraw by 6pm this Saturday in-store at Lotterywest retailers, through Play Online or by downloading the Lotterywest App.

Not only will the thousands of WA Superdraw winners have reason to celebrate after Saturday night’s draw; the WA community can too with players’ support expecting to raise $4.3 million for the local community.

Not-for-profit organisations to receive Lotterywest support include the Albany Sea Rescue Squad which received a $69,156 Lotterywest Grant in February. These funds were used towards communication equipment and a tractor to support the organisation’s volunteers in carrying out rescue work.
