Bunbury player scoops Lotto prize pool (cloned SW 1351471188)

A Bunbury Lotto player has picked up the entire $4 million Division 1 prize pool in Saturday night’s Lotto draw.

The winning ticket worth $4,007,803.25 was sold at Crosslands Newsagency.

It is the second Division 1 Lotto ticket the outlet has sold this year, following a $851,790 Saturday Lotto ticket in March which was claimed by a Bunbury couple.

Owner of Crosslands Newsagency Mark Dennis said it was a great feeling to know he had made a positive difference to someone’s life and delivered another local multi-millionaire.

"Word has already started to spread amongst the town and there is going to be excitement and a buzz in the air tomorrow. It’ great news for our community," he said.

Lotterywest said it was hoping Lotto luck would strike WA again on Tuesday night with OZ Lotto’s $70 million jackpot.

It’s the second largest prize to be offered in the game’s history and has jackpotted to this multi-million dollar amount after no one in the nation has been able to match the game’s seven winning numbers in eight weeks.

It will make national history as the largest Lotto prize won if one player takes home the Division 1 prize.

Lotterywest spokesperson Pina Compagnone said WA players were getting behind the big jackpot which was creating excitement across the State.

"We expect about one in two WA adults to pick up a ticket in the jackpot draw and if the weekend’s local win is anything to by, it’s the perfect time to buy a ticket," Ms Compagnone said.

Tickets for the $70 million OZ Lotto jackpot are available until 5pm on Tuesday.
