Lotto luck strikes WA with three freshly minted millionaires

Three Western Australians have woken up on Sunday morning unaware they are the state's newest millionaires.

Three lucky locals took home $1.5 million each in Saturday night's Lotto draw, and have yet to come forward and claim their wins.

The division one prize pool was split between 14 national winners in total, and the winning numbers were 7, 27, 23, 2,16 and 44.

The winning tickets were sold at Sea Change News in Dunsborough, Arcade News in Victoria Park and Forest Lakes Newsagency in Thornlie.

Another 16 WA locals also took home $7724 each in the division two prize pool.

"He's told me we've won before and he was just tricking me," the Palmyra woman said.

"He's even marked off six numbers on a ticket before to make it look real."

Even a trip to the Lotterywest winners' room wasn't enough to convince the woman, in her 60s, that her Lotto dreams had become reality – and she said she'd believe it once she was in the new house she'd been promised.

"We've been renting for 45 years – I just want something that's actually ours," she said.

While her husband admits he's "cried Lotto" a few too many times before, he's also made good on his word by buying the winning ticket from Palmyra Supa News on a selection of his own numbers.

"I've been playing some new numbers for eight months but this time the chap from the newsagent said – 'this is the winning ticket'," he said.
