Lotto: WA colleagues who are ‘like a family’ win $1.8 million lottery prize

Work colleagues who have tried their luck in lotto together for nine years using a combination of birthdays and favourite numbers have finally come up big time.

The nine WA workers will share in $1.8 million after their entry was one of 11 across Australia to earn them division one honours in Saturday’s $20 million superdraw.

The split will see each employee take home $200,000.

Their entry was picked up at Woodley’s Central Newsagency and Lottery Centre in Mandurah.

“We’ve been buying lottery tickets together for nine years, we’re like a little family,” one of the ecstatic West Aussies told Lotterywest.

“We picked the numbers based on our favourite numbers and birthdays.”

Woodley’s owner Wayne Woodley said it had been a long time between drinks

“We haven’t won big for about eight or nine years and to sell a winning ticket for both a Division One and Division Two prize in Saturday’s draw is very exciting,” he said.

“They do say when it rains it pours, and we’re stoked to have broken our drought.”
