No April Fool's from Midland to Carnamah

There’s no April Fool's twist for Western Australia’s most recent Saturday Lotto winners from Midland, Hamilton Hill and Carnamah, claiming two of the nine Division One tickets sold across the country.
The Division One prizes, worth more than $2.2 million, were sold at Wallaces in Carnamah, while a Lotterywest Retailer Syndicate collected the win with shares sold at both Optimal Pharmacy Plus Midland and Hamilton Hill.
Owner of Optimal Pharmacy Plus in Midland and Hamilton Hill, Peter Zaninovich, said it’s been a pleasure to deliver the good news to his customers.
“A majority of our winners have been regular customers over the years,” he said.
“It’s made me and my staff take a step back at times to share the good news, it’s really a special feeling.
“It couldn’t have come at a better time for some of our winners who have been doing it tough in recent times.”

Last week’s combined bumper $110 million jackpot, saw all three draws return multimillion dollar prizes to winners around the country.
It was revealed one of Tuesday’s OZ Lotto Division One winners bought his ticket twice, after forgetting he’d bought one earlier with the same numbers. The mistake landed him a total prize of $46.6 million.
 “After the OZ Lotto and Powerball jackpots went off to the eastern states, it’s fantastic to see WA finish the week on a high,” said Lotterywest spokesperson Jennie Fitzhardinge
“These three jackpots have helped raised around $17.5 million for the WA community, which is truly marvellous.
“We look forward to meeting our latest Division One winners very soon.”
