WA Lotto winners collect big wins as next week's OZ Lotto hits $40 million jackpot
Over the last few days Lotterywest has opened its Winners Room doors to all three of the Division 1 winners from last Saturday's Lotto draw.
The first to claim their $525,190 prize was a family from Booragoon who purchased their ticket from Garden City Lottery Centre in Booragoon.
"We're more comfortable now. If we want to go on a holiday - we can!" said the man.
The winning family plan to continue playing Lotto and already have their tickets for Tuesday night's $40 million OZ Lotto jackpot!
A man from Fremantle was welcomed next into the Winner's Room.
When he saw all six winning numbers on his ticket from Shepherds Newsagency in Fremantle he couldn't believe his luck.
"I was jumping up and down like a headless chook checking and rechecking my ticket! It just doesn't seem sensible, so much money for such little effort," said the man.
Today the final Division 1 winners from the draw arrived not knowing that they were holding a ticket worth more than half a million dollars.
During their regular weekly shopping trip the retired couple from Sorrento bought their ticket from DJ's Lucky Lottery in Hillarys and didn't imagine it would hold such a large prize.
"We've never won more than $25 before!" said the excited winners.
They said their prize money won't change their lifestyle but they may enjoy some fish and chips for dinner to celebrate and perhaps a holiday in the future.
OZ Lotto hits $40 million
Try your luck in the OZ Lotto $40 million jackpot on Tuesday night.
Tickets can be purchased before 6pm on Tuesday from retailers across the State or from Lotterywest's Play Online service at www.lotterywest.wa.gov.au.
It's not just WA's Division 1 Lotto winners that have something to celebrate following a Lotto win; so does the WA community with 33 cents of every dollar spent on lottery games in WA going back to support the local community.
Community groups to receive this support include the Italian Club Fremantle Inc. who were given a $45,000 Lotterywest Grant in February towards an air-conditioning unit for the main hall used by a number of community groups in the Fremantle area.
