Saturday Lotto produces another WA winner

A Gosnells man has described taking home a prize of $797,532 as a miracle, after matching all six winning numbers on his Saturday Lotto ticket over the weekend. 

In a sliding doors moment at Lakelands Newsagency, he almost decided not to buy the Division One winning ticket when the store’s EFTPOS machine wasn’t working.

“The newsagency’s EFTPOS machine was down, so I almost walked away, but decided to go to the shops and get some cash out,” the winner said.

Since checking the numbers on his ticket late on Sunday night, he said he’d only had about an hour’s sleep.

“I was with my dog and when I discovered I had six numbers, I panicked and called my mum,” he said.

“She said if you have six numbers, you’ve done alright.

 “This is a miracle.”  

Lotterywest spokesperson James Mooney said the next chance to become WA’s 50th Division One winner this year, is in Tuesday's $10 million OZ Lotto jackpot draw.

“OZ Lotto is a jackpotting game, which means if Division One is not won the prize will increase in the next draw,” Mr Mooney said. 

“We’d love to see a ticket from WA break this jackpot run and become our 50th Division One win for 2021.”
