Joondanna siblings win more than a million in Lotto in the lead up to Christmas

A brother-sister duo from Joondanna are West Australia’s latest millionaires after another Division 1 win at the weekend.

The siblings, aged in their 40s, said they were delighted to pocket the $1.3 million win in the lead up to Christmas.

One of the winners said “family Christmas this year just got a whole lot better”.

While part of their winnings had been earmarked for a family holiday overseas, they said their first purchase, as newly-minted millionaires would be a frame to display their winning ticket.

“This ticket’s going straight to the pool room,” the man said.

“Pity it’s got lipstick marks all over it – my sister hasn’t stopped kissing the ticket since we found out we’d won.”

Lotterywest spokeswoman Chloe Lawler said the siblings capped off a huge November for the organisation.

“They mark our fifth Division one win in less than three weeks – a feat that is unheard of in the world of Lotto,” Ms Lawler said.

With just one month to go until Lotterywest’s biggest draw of the year, Ms Lawler said the organisation was hopeful November’s winning streak was a sign of things to come.

“Our $30 million Megadraw takes place on December 30 and with a strong number of Division one wins under our belt we’re convinced a West Australian will take it out,” she said.

“Megadraw fever has already starting to spread with punters purchasing tickets well ahead of time.”

“Tickets in Lotterywest’s $30 million Megadraw are available now in-store, online or by downloading the app.
