Another Waikiki lotto win

Gareth McKnightSound Telegraph

A Waikiki dairy assistant has come forward to claim more than $33,000 in Division 1 Super66 prize money, as the greater Rockingham region’s lotto luck continues.

The news comes on the back of a 47-year-old Waikiki woman claiming a $1 million Saturday lotto ticket on October 7.

The latest winner, Stephanie, said she had made an accidental purchase from Shoalwater News and Lotteries but it turned into a win.

“We actually stuffed up and bought the wrong ticket – we’d never heard of Super66 before and even thought about returning it,” she said.

“$33,000 later we’re glad we didn’t.”

Stephanie and husband Mark said they only play lotto when they have spare change and took a chance on this occasion.

“I thought my hubby was going to hit the deck when we realised we’d won,” she said.

“They say good things come in threes – the Tigers won the Grand Final, we won Super66 and with the $21 million Superdraw on Saturday we might see you again on Monday.”

Lotterywest spokeswoman Chloe Lawler said although Western Australia had experienced unprecedented Superdraw luck so far this year, every tip would count with $21 million on the line.

“There have been seven Superdraws so far this year with WA producing a winner on almost every occasion,” she said.

“That’s over $18 million we’ve given away in Division 1 Superdraw prize money alone.”

Ms Lawler said the game’s most commonly drawn numbers for 2017 are 23, 21 and 16.
