"The numbers just kept coming!"

A South West couple’s decision to change up a 30-year tradition has guided them to a $1.3 million Saturday Lotto Division 1 prize. 

After playing the same numbers for the past three decades, the couple decided to play last weekend’s Saturday Lotto with a Slikpik instead. 

That decision and a ticket from Callows Corner in Busselton helped them match the numbers to a Division 1 prize in the draw on 25 February.

“We played with our own numbers for more than 30 years, but gave up and got a Slikpik instead,” the winner said. 

“When I checked my ticket, at first, I was happy because I had three numbers, which covered the cost of my ticket, but the numbers just kept coming.”
