WA's 2015 winners smash Lotterywest records ahead of $20 million Saturday Lotto Superdraw this weekend
Breaking previous' year's records, Western Australia has celebrated 86 Division 1 winners so far this year with these players sharing in over $202 million in prizes.
These results are higher than any other year in Lotterywest's history, beating last year's record with 14 more Division 1 winners. There are still several weeks to go for winners to join the exclusive Division 1 winners list for 2015.
Our Division 1 winners have also shared in over $90 million more in prizes compared to winners this time last year and this amount is only expected to rise.
Newsextra Bentley News Tobacconist has sold two of this year's Division 1 winning tickets.
Their first was a $1 million winning Wednesday Lotto ticket in the draw on 15 July and their second was in the $21 million Saturday Lotto Superdraw on 1 August in which won a man from Bentley a cool $1,235,294.
"Our customers have been quite confident in us. We've had two strikes at Division 1 and they believe we're on our way to a third," said Manesh Nagar, owner of Newsextra Bentley News Tobacconist.
"It's been very busy in the lead up to the $20 million Saturday Lotto Superdraw so we're going to trust our customers. We're going to sell our third Division 1 winning ticket in this weekend's Superdraw!" he said.
Everyone in WA benefits when you play Lotterywest Games as 34 cents out of every dollars spent goes back to supporting the local community.
The Coeliac Society of Western Australia Incorporated located in Bentley received a $1,200 Lotterywest Grant towards display equipment to raise awareness and provide easier access to information on Coeliac disease and gluten free food.
