Parmelia couple wins $1.3m in Lotto

WHEN a Parmelia couple overheard the news a winning ticket worth more than $1.3 million had been sold in their area, they joked about it.

“I heard someone in Kwinana had won, so I went around telling everyone it was me,” she said.

“Eventually I checked the ticket, however I actually missed the line with the winning numbers.

“My son was looking over my shoulder and said ‘Mum, look, they are the numbers’.

“I guess the joke was on me in the end.”

The ticket, worth more than $1.3 million, was sold at The Kwinana Hub Lottery Centre and News.

The winning numbers were 8, 45, 6, 2, 39, 36 with supplementary numbers 5 and 13.

The couple said they planned to wipe off debt and look after their children and grand children.

“Perhaps a Harley for every day of the week would be nice,” the man in his 50s said.

Kwinana Hub Lottery Centre and News owner Peter Andersson said it was wonderful to celebrate a local win.

“We always want to see our locals have a win, and we’ve been here for 19 years and this is now our 13th Division One prize,” he said.

In the past year, Lotterywest has supported the Kwinana area with more than $120,000 in grants from community events to emergency relief for people experiencing financial hardship.
