Lotto luck strikes WA three times in six days, this time taking home OZ Lotto $15 million prize
The lucky local was the nation's only Division 1 winner. The winning ticket was purchased from newsXpress Meve in Beeliar.
Lotterywest spokesperson Pina Compagnone said tonight's win follows a run of local Division 1 Lotto wins in WA in the last six days.
"WA delivered a million dollar Lotto prize on Wednesday and then a winning ticket worth just over $1 million in Saturday's Lotto draw. It looks like three times a charm with an incredible $15 million prize won by one WA player tonight," she said.
"We are thrilled that Lady Luck is surrounding our State and fulfilling many of our players dreams of striking Lotto luck."
A further 51,819 other WA players collected an OZ Lotto prize tonight in the draw's other Divisions.
Lotterywest encourages all players who may have purchased a ticket in the draw to check them as soon as possible for the winning numbers 35, 5, 22, 27, 17, 31 and 29
Tonight's $15 million Division 1 Lotto prize is the sixth largest Lotto prize won in WA. The record for the State's largest Lotto win sits at $30 million which has been won three times – in October last year, in 2007 and in 2001.
Lotto winners are not the only ones who benefited from tonight's jackpot, with Lotterywest raising millions to support the WA community from the draw.
Local groups to benefit from Lotterywest funding include the Southern Cross Village Success Residents' Committee located in Beeliar's neighbouring suburb of Success. The group received a $4,764 Lotterywest Grant last year for equipment to encourage community members over 55 in the area to get fit and healthy.
