New own­ers bring luck

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - STREET WATCH -

THE win­ners of a share in a $4.2 mil­lion Di­vi­sion 1 Lotto ticket have been re­vealed as the 10 mem­bers of a South Perth syn­di­cate.

The syn­di­cate was cre­ated and sold by Vau­cluse Newsagency in South Perth and will de­liver each mem­ber al­most $431,000.

They are among two Di­vi­sion 1 win­ners from WA in the March 25 $21 mil­lion Su­per­draw.

The sec­ond ticket, which re­mains un­claimed, was sold at Can­ning Vale Newsagency.

Store owner Angela Mi­sack­ovski said it was a case of ‘new own­ers, new luck’ af­ter tak­ing own­er­ship of the store less than six months ago.

“It’s an in­cred­i­ble re­sult but we just had this feel­ing we were go­ing to have a big win,” she said.

“I can’t de­scribe how won­der­ful it is to know you’ve made not only one but 10 of your cus­tomers Di­vi­sion 1 Lotto win­ners.”

One of the syn­di­cate mem­bers, a man in his 50s from Bun­bury, wasted no time com­ing for­ward to claim his prize last week.

The self-pro­claimed work­horse who works in construction was hop­ing to take some time off and go on a hol­i­day.

“I’ve been slog­ging it out for a long time,” he said.

“I’m yet to cel­e­brate, but I plan to have a pint or two over din­ner.

“Al­most half a mil­lion dol­lars is def­i­nitely beer wor­thy.”
