Perth player’s num­ber comes in

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - OPINION -

A LUCKY West Australian has won a share of Satur­day’s Lotto Su­per­draw Divi­sion 1 prize pool.

Tak­ing home a cool $1.9 mil­lion, the win­ning ticket was one of 11 pur­chased na­tion­wide.

An­other 21 WA ticket hold­ers won $10,586 each in Divi­sion 2.

The golden ticket was sold at Bel­mont News in Cloverdale.

The store is on a lucky streak. It sold a Divi­sion 1 win­ning ticket worth $200,493 last month.

Owner John Fer­rier said 2016 has been their luck­i­est year.

“We’ve sold a lot of first divi­sion Lotto and scratchie tick­ets,” he said.

He hopes Satur­day’s win­ner is a reg­u­lar cus­tomer.

“Then they’ll come in and tell me,” he said. “In all my years of sell­ing Divi­sion 1 win­ners no­body has ever come in and said, ‘I won!’.

“It’d be nice if some­one came in and said thanks for sell­ing them the ticket.”

Lot­tery­west spokes­woman Pina Com­pagnone said Cloverdale was WA’s cur­rent Lotto hot spot, with five divi­sion 1 win­ning tick­ets sold in the sub­urb this year.
