Twice the luck for hard-working Collie couple

A hard-working couple from Collie has claimed their mid-week $1 million prize, their second Division One win in just 12 months.

The couple were part of a winning Saturday Lotto syndicate in September last year where they walked away with over $160,000.

Both in their 50’s, they plan to build their dream house, buy a new car and will be finally taking their honeymoon, after ten years of marriage.

“We’ve honestly had a really tough few years filled with hardships, so this is life changing to us,” the woman said.

“We’re already looking at places we can finally take our honeymoon – Hawaii is definitely on the cards!”

“I’m so happy we’ll be able to help our family, build our dream home and spend more time with our grandkids”.

Whilst the woman will be retiring from her job, her husband will continue working.

“My colleagues are like my family and I’m not ready to hang up my boots yet,” he said.

“But I’m looking forward to taking some time out and getting a new Harley-Davidson.”

They attribute their Lotto success to a positive attitude with their most recent winning ticket purchased through their Lotterywest membership online.

“Through all the tough times we’ve had we still try and put on a brave face and continue having a positive outlook,” the woman said.

“I never imagined we’d win twice but I always wish for good luck with every ticket I buy and it paid off!”

The countdown is on with just eight days to go until Superdraw Saturday with a $20 million Division One prize pool on offer on 1 September.

Superdraw tickets are available until 6pm Saturday from Lotterywest in-store, online or through the app.
