Voice of reason leads to $7.5 million OZ Lotto win

18 November 2020
A southern suburbs couple have won the largest WA lotto win for 2020 after taking out a share in last night’s OZ Lotto $30 million draw.
After seeing on the news that a winning ticket had been sold at Nova Newsagency in Perth, the wife “had a feeling” it could be them, as this is where she buys their weekly tickets.
“About two months ago my wife said she was going to stop buying OZ Lotto and Powerball and just buy Saturday Lotto, because we’d had a run of numbers nowhere close to winning,” the husband said.
“I told her to hold off on that for now – and two weeks later, we won.”
In his 60s, the retired driver said the win would not change their life but would significantly change the lives of their family and friends.
“They’ll all get a substantial amount, but for now just my wife and I will celebrate by having a drink on the deck at Coco’s,” he said.
Lotterywest spokesperson Hermione Coleman said it was heart-warming to hear that the winnings would be shared.
“It’s a common story with our winners that family and friends also benefit from a Lotto win,” she said.
“As well as our winners sharing their financial joy, $1.5 million was raised during OZ Lotto’s jackpot run, which will go towards supporting the WA community.”
The ticket was one of four that matched up the winning numbers across the nation and is the largest OZ Lotto win for WA this calendar year after a man won $5.8 million in OZ Lotto in July.
WA players have another chance to win big in next weekend’s Million Yeah Saturday where up to 10 players can win $1 million.
Tickets can be bought up to 6pm on the day of the draw in-store, online or via the app.
