West Aussie $4m richer after lotto win
Cloverdale’s Here’s Luck Lottery Centre lived up to its name yet again, by selling the State’s biggest division one prize in 2008 for Saturday night’s lotto draw.
One lucky Western Australian scooped the $4 million division one prize.
Lotterywest spokeswoman Gina Zanotti said it was unusual for there to be only one winner in the popular Saturday night lotto.“This is a fantastic surprise,” she said.
“It’s the biggest division one prize sold in WA so far this year and is $1 million clear of WA’s next two largest division one prizes won in 2008.”
Here’s Luck Lottery Centre owner Raj ‘Sel’ Selvendra said it was the 14th time in six years his Belmont Forum store had produced a division one win.
On Saturday night, while the jackpot was won, Mr Selvendra received the Lotterywest Community Connect Award’s for his fundraising work for St Vincent de Paul.
The award acknowledged Lotterywest retailers and staff who volunteer their time and talents to support charities and good causes.
