Western Australia lottery syndicate win $2m
PERTH, WA – Members of a lottery syndicate from Maddington, WA arrived at the Lotterywest head office to each claim their share of Saturday’s $2 million Division One prize from the $20 million Superdraw.
First to enter the winners’ room was a couple in their 60s from Seville Grove, who said a trip to a local hardware store led to their win. “On my way home, I dropped into a lottery outlet and purchased a share in a syndicate,” the husband told the press.
The couple said the Lotto win would bring their retirement forward, allow them to be debt free and enjoy a dream holiday to the Greek Islands. “I thought I was going to have to work until I was 70 years old but I can pull the pin much sooner than I planned. We own everything now,” he added.
Their syndicate share, was a couple in their 30s from Perth’s southern suburbs. The couple said the win could not have come at a better time in their life. “We run our own business and we have been struggling a bit lately. This win will help us get out of the red. We thought it was going to be another stressful week but this has put a big smile on our face. You’ve got to be in it to win it,” they said.
The owner of Good Fortune Lottery Centre Maureen Allen said it was the eighth Division One ticket sold at the outlet in 11 years.
