Unclaimed Rockingham lotto ticket worth $1 million

Sound Telegraph

Rockingham could well have a new millionaire, with an unclaimed winning lotto ticket worth just over $1 million sold in the city.

The winning ticket for Saturday’s draw was sold at Rockingham Central Lottery Centre and marks the 53rd Division 1 win for the State.

Store owner Marie Alexander said she was shocked to learn that her store had scooped its second Division 1 Saturday Lotto winning ticket for 2017.

“There must be something in the water because we actually sold a Division 1 winning ticket worth over $1 million back in February,” she said.

“The win marks the sixth Division 1 winning ticket sold here in just over five years.”

Mrs Alexander said Rockingham’s lucky streak didn’t stop at Lotto tickets with the store recently selling a scratchie that bagged one lucky local $200,000.

“I crunched some numbers out of curiosity and over the past five years, Rockingham Central Lottery Centre has returned an incredible $6 million in Division 1 prize money,” she said.

“But it’s always important to remember that every time you play with Lotterywest, the good fortune doesn’t stop with prize money.”
