A Mandurah mother was shocked and moved to tears after being revealed as WA’s missing Lotto millionaire, as she has come forward to claim more than $1.4 million in prize money.

The woman said she only learnt of her win after visiting Mandurah Greenfields Newsagency to check her ticket almost two weeks after the June 24 draw.

“The staff member asked to see me out the back and I thought to myself ‘oh God, what have the kids done now?” the woman said.

“He then said I was the missing division 1 winner and that I’d won $1.4 million.”

Ms Brough said.

The win is the second division 1 payout in Mandurah this year, with $1 million claimed at Nextra Forum West in January.
