Two West Australians sharing the Lotto feeling after division one wins

CHRISTMAS just got a whole lot more exciting for two lucky West Australians, with the state producing two division one winners in Saturday Lotto.

One of the winning tickets was sold at Woolstores Lottery Centre & News in Fremantle and the other sold through a Lotterywest membership online.

The tickets, which remain unclaimed, are each worth $976,274 and mark the State’s 60th and 61st division one wins for the year.

Store owner Rex Bassett said the Fremantle locals were already lining up past the door hoping all their Christmases have come at once.

“I feel like I’m the new Santa Claus,” he said.

“People are getting their tickets out and checking them twice, if you’ll pardon the pun.

“I’m hoping to deliver another division one win in the Megadraw – now that would be a happy New Year.”
