Warnbro winner waits a while

Warnbro winner waits a while

A WARNBRO man has come forward to claim a whopping $1.05 million Division One Lotto prize drawn three months ago.

The winning ticket was sold at Waikiki Village Newsagency for a draw on Saturday January 17.

The man said he was unaware he was an instant millionaire as he was working away and had not checked his tickets.

“When I got back and realised I had all the winning numbers, I thought this is a dream, it can’t be real,” he said.

“I burst out to everyone I’m a millionaire, then we were all crying and hugging and everyone was so happy for us.�

The man said he was now given the responsibility of buying the office�s weekly syndicate and was given the nickname �lucky Buddha�.

Lotterywest put a call out for the owner of a $1.015 million ticket sold in April last year at Osborne Park Newsagency, that has still not been claimed.
