WA produces five weekend Lotto winners ahead of $31 million Megadraw
Lady luck has surrounded Western Australia this weekend after five local Lotto players picked up a $371,450.36 Division One prize in Saturday's Lotto draw.
The winning tickets were sold at:
- Flinders Square Lucky Lotto in Yokine
- Day by Day Newsagency in Cloverdale
- Jackpot Lottery Centre in Mirrabooka
- The Lotto Lottery Centre in Booragoon
- Nookenburra News and Lotto in Innaloo
For Jackpot Lottery Centre, it was the second Division One Lotto winning ticket sold there in four months and followed a $333,333 prize sold at the outlet in an August Wednesday Lotto draw.
"I'm not sure what we put our luck down to but I do hope we can make it third time lucky and sell another big winner in the upcoming $31 million Megadraw," said owner of Jackpot Lottery Centre Tony Cotellessa.
Mr Cotellessa said word of the win was getting around the shopping centre today with many players coming in to check if they had the winning ticket.
"The prize will be a very special Christmas present for someone," he said.
The weekend wins brings this year's number of Western Australian Division One Lotto winners to 82. These winners have shared in $124 million in prize money.
Lotterywest spokesperson Pina Compagnone said the weekend wins were a good sign of things to come in the upcoming Megadraw on 31 December.
"It's been a lucky year for local Lotto players and certainly a lucky Lotto month, so let's hope that the State's winning Lotto streak will continue into New Year's Eve," she said.
Tickets for the upcoming $31 million Megadraw are available from any Lotterywest retailer across the State or from Lotterywest's Play Online service at www.lotterywest.wa.gov.au
Lotto winners are not the only ones to benefit from Lotto draws, with 34 cents in every dollar spent on lottery games returned to benefit our local hospitals, sports and arts groups, and thousands of not-for-profit and community groups across Western Australia.
In March, the Mirrabooka Multicultural Childcare Centre benefited from a $34,547 Lotterywest Grant to help refurbish the playground area at the centre.
