No more overtime for once in a lifetime win

A Carnarvon local has come forward as the Western Australian winner who took out a share in last month’s $20 million Superdraw Saturday.
The Slikpik 18 was bought from Carnarvon Lottery News & Gifts and is worth $2.5 million.
The man, 50, said he was working overtime on a Sunday when a work colleague mentioned that someone from Carnarvon had won.
They both checked his ticket, cross checking online and in the paper to make sure it held the winning numbers.
“After I had realised I had won I downed tools and left for the day,” he said.
“I’m going to upgrade my car and boat, set up a trust fund for my daughter and invest the rest – and I’ll never be working overtime again.”
He said that he and his family would celebrate with a seafood dinner and that he would register his winning numbers as future luck when playing Lotto.
Lotterywest spokesperson Hermione Coleman said the next chance for WA players to win big was in tonight’s $25 million OZ Lotto draw.
“Also, Million Yeah Saturday is also coming up this weekend on 10 April, which gives up to 10 winners the chance to take home $1 million each,” she said.
Tickets can be bought up until 6pm on draw days in-store, online or via the app.
