Regional WA picks up two weekend Lotto wins...with Goldfields crowned as lucky Lotto hotspot for 2014!

15 December 2014

Lotto luck travelled to regional Western Australia on the weekend with two Division 1 winning Lotto tickets sold in South Hedland and Kalgoorlie.

The winning tickets, each worth $409,216, were sold at South Hedland Newsagency and City News Kalgoorlie.

For Kalgoorlie, it was the fifth Division 1 Lotto ticket sold there this year, making in WA's number one Lotto hot spot for 2014.

Owner of City News Kalgoorlie Rick Robinson said the outlet had experienced a run of Division 1 Lotto wins over the last 18 years, including a $25 million win in 2006.

"At the time that $25 million win was the biggest single Lotto win in the southern hemisphere!" he said.

"It has been eight years since our last big win so we had a strong feeling that another Division 1 Lotto win was not too far away. Most of us are after a big win, so when it actually happens it's a great feeling and the community really comes together," he said.

WA's tally of Division 1 Lotto winners for the year has now reached 79. These winners have shared in prizes worth $123 million.

Looking for your chance to win big?

It could be in two upcoming Lotto draws - tomorrow night's $30 million OZ Lotto jackpot and the $30 million Megadraw on Saturday 3 January.

It's not just local winners that are set to benefit from these two draws with Lotterywest expected to raise a combined $10 million for the WA community.

Community groups to receive Lotterywest support include the Shire of Leonora which was given a $1.5 million Lotterywest Grant earlier this year to help with the development of an office and administration centre providing accessible space for communities in the Northern Goldfields.

Tickets for tomorrow night's $30 million OZ Lotto jackpot and the $30 million Megadraw can be purchased from Lotterywest retailers or Play Online at www.lotterywest.wa.gov.au
