Lesmurdie Lotto luck: second division 1 winner in a month sold at Chemmart

A LESMURDIE outlet has delivered its second division 1 winner in less than a month following the weekend’s Super66 Lotto draw.

The winning ticket is worth $27,168.80 and marks the sixth division 1 ticket sold in WA this month.

Lesmurdie Chemmart Pharmacy and News store owner Trang Nguyen Le said lady luck was certainly shining on the people of Lesmurdie.

“To sell two division 1 winning tickets in less than three weeks is extraordinary,” she said.

“It just goes to show adding on a Super66 to your Saturday Lotto can pay off.”

Lotterywest spokeswoman Pina Compagnone said the weekend win brought WA’s division 1 prize total to almost $8 million for January.

“WA has certainly continued its spectacular run of Lotto luck,” she said.

“On average this January we’ve given away $2 million a week in division 1 prizes alone.”

In 2015-16 West Australians won prizes totalling $601 million, including 91 lucky players who won a division 1 Lotto prize.

“For every dollar spent on lottery games over a third is returned to benefit our community,” Ms Compagnone said.

“In Lesmurdie we have been able to support initiatives like the Zig Zag Community Arts Festival and contribute almost $30,000 to those in the community experiencing hardship.”

With a combined $30 million of jackpots on offer this week Ms Compagnone said Lotterywest was hoping WA’s run of Lotto luck would continue.

“There are two big chances to win this week,” she said.

“The excitement starts tomorrow night when a $20 million jackpot goes up for grabs in OZ Lotto followed by a $10 million Powerball jackpot on Thursday.”
