New owners bring luck
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.”
