Fred Geb and Samara Lance from Forrestfield Marketplace News, which sold a Division One winning Lotto ticket. AN Aveley woman is celebrating her big Lotto jackpot.
The woman in her 40s, who bought the Megadraw ticket from Nextra Express Ellenbrook, picked up $1.4 million.
There were four other milliondollar winners, leading a Forrestfield newsagent to declare the luck was with his customers.
A Wundowie FIFO worker bought his winning Lotto ticket from Fred Geb’s Forrestfield Marketplace News.
“I also sold a division 2 winner on the same evening to a different person worth $10,194,” owner Fred Geb said.
“The luck’s in Forrestfield. That was my 14th major prize win since I’ve been there.”
The Wundowie Megadraw winner plans to hang up his hi-vis.
“I nearly choked on my can of JD and Coke when I found out,” he said.
“This win means more time with my wife and kids after really struggling to be away from them.
“FIFO just about nailed me – it was a choice between my health and the money.”
Other winners included a Willetton family, a middle-aged couple from Hillarys and two lifelong friends from Guildford.
