Play Online kicks goals delivering Soccer Pools Division 1 winner

10 August 2015

WA welcomed a Division 1 winner in Soccer Pools over the weekend - the prize is worth almost $50,000.

The winning ticket was sold online through Lotterywest Play Online. It marks the second Division 1 winning ticket sold via Play Online so far this year and the 12th in just over two years.

The new win brings WA's tally of Division 1 winners to 60 for the year with these winners sharing in prizes worth almost $150 million.

Not only is Lotterywest waiting to hear from the recent Soccer Pools winner, there are still two outstanding prizes from the $21 million Saturday Lotto Superdraw on 1 August.

These tickets were sold at:

  • Newstime Lottery Centre in Perth.
  • Newsextra Bentley News and Tobacconist.

It's not just local winners that benefit following a Lotto draw, with 33 cents of every dollar spent on Lotterywest Games returned to support the WA community.

Community groups to receive this support include Therapy Focus Incorporated in Bentley who received a $890,431 Lotterywest Grant in March towards the cost of upgrading IT equipment and software to provide a more responsive and efficient level of service for young people in need of therapy support.

$40 million jackpot tomorrow

Lotterywest retailers are in for a busy couple of days with more than 400,000 tickets expected to be sold across WA in tomorrow night's $40 million OZ Lotto jackpot.

During the busiest hour of trade tomorrow, Lotterywest expects to sell close to 600 tickets every minute.

Emma Dean from newsXpress Armadale Central said there had been lots of people visiting the store to pick up a ticket.

"After our recent luck selling the $50 million winning ticket last month, we're hoping we can sell a $40 million winner to another lucky customer tomorrow!" she said.

Tickets for the $40 million OZ Lotto jackpot can be purchased by 6pm tomorrow from Lotterywest retailers, Play Online at www.lotterywest.wa.gov.au or the Lotterywest App.
