Australian newsagent sells two winning lottery tickets in same week


A Western Australian newsagent has had a lucky streak, selling two winning lottery tickets in just one week!

Is this is luckiest newsagents in Western Australia? It just might be after selling two winning lottery tickets within days of each other. What store is it, you ask? Well, it was the Carramar Lottery Centre and News, located in the suburbs.

Lottery-west spokesman James Mooney said it had been a particularly eventful week for WA players.

“This ticket from Carramar Lottery Centre and News in Morley was the second division one ticket sold at this retailer in the space of a week,” Mr Moone

“We are still in the first month of 2020 and have already welcomed six division one players to our winners’ room.”

Winner Number One

Last Saturday, a man from Perth bought a winning Saturday Lotto division one ticket. The West Australian lottery winner revealed the moment he discovered the true extent of his winnings.

“I went to my retailer to double-check my ticket, and when he told me my it was worth $1.6 million my gob hit the floor,” the man said.

He initially believe his prize had been split three-ways with two other winners. However, that was not the case. In fact, we won the full $1.6 million to himself.

The winner was planning to travel abroad with his partner. He talks about his plans after the win.

“When I thought I had won $500,000, I planned to upgrade our seats to business class, but now I’ll be going first,” he said.

Winner Number Two

Only a few days earlier, Carramar Lottery Centre and News had changed the life of another customer. It sold another winning Saturday Lotto division one ticket, with the lucky winner receiving more than $866,700.

Interestingly, a psychic told the winner previously that they would receive a $600,000 windfall! Coincidence?

Happy Staff

A worker at the store, Milan Gohil, sold two lucky tickets within one week.

“I saw a few new faces after the previous draw, so I hope their decision to try out our store will have a good impact for them.”

He made it clear it was a unique start to the year.
