Latest Lotto winner to upgrade to deluxe washing machine
A Gosnells man has taken Western Australia's Division 1 Lotto tally up to 17 for the year after his weekend win.
Good Fortune Lottery Centre in Maddington sold the Saturday Lotto ticket which delivered the man $473,896.
When the winner came to Lotterywest Head Office this morning he thought he would be collecting a few thousand dollars. He couldn't believe it when he was whisked away into the Winners' Room and told the news.
"I thought I had only won a lower Division and was really happy it would get me a new washing machine. Now I guess I can upgrade to the deluxe model!" said the stunned man.
The ticket which the man's father had bought for him 'just because' has opened up many doors.
"I'm currently boarding and have never owned my own home. Now my first home can be more than a dream," said the winner.
The man also plans to share his win with his brother and go on his second ever overseas holiday.
