AUSTRALIAN COUPLE WIN THEIR SECOND $1M LOTTERY PRIZE IN PAST TWO YEARS

Getting a major lottery win is a dream for most of us but a couple from Gosnels in Perth, Western Australia have just won their second million-dollar prize in less than two years after being lucky enough to win $1m in the June 20 Wednesday Lotto draw.

The lucky Australian couple have asked to remain anonymous just like the recent $9.3m New Zealand Powerball winner.  They had previously been successful in December 2016 when they won $1m in a Monday Lotto draw. Amazingly on both occasions they purchased their winning lottery ticket from the NewsXpress store in Foothills so it’s no wonder they keep buying their Oz Lotto tickets there.

There are some stores in Western Australia that have a lot of luck when it comes to selling lottery tickets. Lottery24.com recently told you about the Fieldgate News and Deli Store in Balga, that credited a laughing Buddha mascot for the $20,000 Set for Life winning ticket they sold.

It’s not uncommon for players to have more than one big lottery win. A French player won two €1m EuroMillions prizes in the space of 18 months. A mathematician from New South Wales in Australia has won several lottery prizes including a recent $234,437.37 Saturday Lotto windfall. Another Australian player, this time from Sydney, won the lottery twice in a week including a $1.457m Tatt’s Lotto prize.

Their winning numbers in the June 20 Wednesday Lotto draw were; 03-21-29-31-37-39 and they were the only winners of the top prize. The delighted couple say that they want to use their winnings to help their children.  “Everything we do is for the kids and this just means we can set them up for the future,” they said.

Now they have won had two big Oz Lotto wins, is there any secret to their success?  Recently we told of you of a man from Detroit in Michigan, USA, who only buys scratch cards with an odd rather than even number and won $2m on a Diamond Dazzler scratch card.

The Wednesday Lotto winners believe that their lottery wins are all down to sheer persistence. A good attitude is the key and it’s not if I win, but when,” the man said. They choose their own numbers when playing lotteries, but they aren’t based on anything, just ones that they like, and they have been using them for the past ten years.
