A THORNLIE newsagency is feeling lucky after selling its fourth division one-winning lottery ticket in just two years.

Forest Lakes Newspower has celebrated selling a winning ticket in the February 10 Lotto Superdraw, worth an incredible $1.5 million.

While it was the largest win the newsagent has enjoyed so far, it follows on the heels of two winning tickets last year – in addition to another winner in 2016.

Betty Salomiu and Danny Khetani celebrate another winning lottery ticket at Forest Lakes Newspower.

Overall, it was the outlet’s second winning Superdraw ticket in the last two years.

Manager Danny Khetani said the store was on a roll and he was confident of selling more winning tickets.

“It feels like we’re lucky, it is always good to sell a division one winner from the shop, they’re hard to come by,” he said.

Mr Khetani said the winning ticket had been bought by a regular customer who was in disbelief over their victory.

“They were so surprised, they honestly could not believe they had won,” he said.
