TODAY may have been the race that stopped the nation with many Australians hoping for a Melbourne Cup win, but overnight one lucky West Australian secured a million dollar prize in last night’s Monday Lotto draw.
The unclaimed ticket was bought from Springs News in Beechboro, and makes the 44th division one winner across WA this year.
Store owner Denise Vuletich said it was the second division one winning ticket sold at Springs News in just seven months.
“This follows a win we had worth just over a million dollars in April,” she said.
“That’s now four division 1 winning tickets we’ve produced since the store opened eight years ago – that’s pretty incredible.”
Ms Vuletich said she put the luck down to a positive attitude and good customer service.
While Perth waits to uncover last night’s instant millionaire, a second Lotto fortune remains unclaimed.
The Saturday Lotto ticket from last weekend holds an unclaimed prize of $441,295 that was bought from Lakers News in Lakelands.
