Agency sells the big One

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - NEWS -

THE own­ers of a Cloverdale newsagency said they were re­lieved to have sold their first Divi­sion One lot­tery ticket.

Last Satur­day saw four WA res­i­dents be­come $659,000 richer af­ter buy­ing win­ning first divi­sion tick­ets, in­clud­ing one sold lo­cally.

Owner of Day By Day Newsagency in Cloverdale Lionel Liew said he had pre­vi­ously sold two Divi­sion One tick­ets worth about $10,000 but this was by far the big­gest win they had sold.

“We have had the busi­ness for just over a year now and we were won­der­ing when it might hap­pen be­cause a lot of cus­tomers were ask­ing,” he said.

“It’s good to have the first off our back.”

The win­ner, a woman who bought the win­ning ticket from the newsagency, said she called her hus­band who works Fifo to share the good news.

“I told him, ‘I think you should hand in your no­tice – we’ve won Lotto’,” she said.

“It’s the best tim­ing for us. We are from New Zealand so this money is our fu­ture.”
