WA claims $15m OzLotto prize
THE search is on for WA’s newest multi-millionaires who scooped last night’s OzLotto.
The Division One winning ticket was sold at Callows Corner Lottery Centre in Busselton.
It’s not the first time they’ve sold a division one winning ticket before. A group syndicate of four took home $1 million last year.
Elizabeth and Ted Callow, who have owned Callows Corner Lottery Centre for more than 40 years, are one of Lotterywest’s longest standing retailers.
“This is major news for the South West. There’s going to be a lot of excited locals across town tomorrow and I expect the good news will spread quickly,” Mrs Callow said. “We’ve had quite a few Division 1 wins over the years, but this is one of our biggest. It’s great news,” Mrs Callow added.
Almost 40,000 other WA players took home an OZ Lotto prize, including two lucky locals who were the only Division 2 winners nationally, collecting just over $91,000 each.
Lotterywest says it is still waiting to hear from WA’s newest multi-millionaires.
The win follows two $4.2 million Division 1 windfalls across the weekend and contributes to the State’s fast growing tally of Division 1 Lotto winners which has now reached 20 punters sharing in almost $57 million so far this year.
The winning numbers were 12, 39, 45, 41, 37, 22 and 23.
Local players will have another chance to win big this week when a $15 million Powerball jackpot goes on offer Thursday night.
