Public holiday leads to $1 million win

A couple from Perth’s eastern suburbs have thanked Tuesday’s public holiday for their $1 million Monday Lotto windfall.
Their Monday Lotto ticket from Helena Valley Pharmacy & New was the only Division One winner from across the country.
As they didn’t want to miss out on a ticket for Tuesday’s OZ Lotto draw the couple picked up their tickets a day earlier.  
“I went down to get an OZ Lotto ticket as it was a public holiday on the Tuesday,” the winner said.
“I never play Monday Lotto, but I had some winnings left over from my other games, so I grabbed one.”
The winners said they will look after their family with the seven figure win.
Lotterywest spokesperson James Mooney said it’s been a solid start to 2021 for WA players.
“We’ve already seen nine Division One prizes go off in WA and it’s still only January,” Mr Mooney said.
“When Western Australians win, the benefits can flow onto the community as our winners tend to share their prizes with family members and friends.
“The next chance for WA players to win is Tuesday’s $30 million OZ Lotto draw.”
Tickets for the draw are available until 6pm Tuesday from Lotterywest in-store, online or via the app.
Thanks to those that purchase Lotterywest tickets, all available profits are returned to the WA community.
