Tradie’s million-dollar birthday

A Geraldton tradie has thanked his birthday for a $1 million Monday Lotto windfall.

The numbers from his System 5 ticket, bought with a Lotterywest membership online, were a mix of birthday numbers and his age.
The Geraldton winner said he recently changed his combination of numbers following his birthday which took place the week before the November draw.
“If these numbers came up a week earlier, I would have missed out,” he said.
“I was about to go to bed but decided to check my numbers when I realised I’d won.
“I couldn’t get to sleep until 2am and then had to get up for work at 5am.”
Lotterywest spokesperson Pina Compagnone said to date, 78 WA players had taken out a Division One prize in 2020.
“These WA players have shared in more than $105 million,” Ms Compagnone said.
“As the holiday season approaches, it would be fantastic to see more WA players start the new year with a Division One win.
“The next big chance for players is the upcoming $30 million Megadraw on 2 January 2021.”
Tickets are available from Lotterywest in-store, online or via the app.
Thanks to those that purchase Lotterywest tickets, all available profits are returned to support the WA community.
