A couple from Katanning screamed so loud when they realised they won almost $1.5 million at the weekend, they thought the whole town probs heard them.
The couple said they had been playing the same ticket type, a Slikpik 30, for the last 12 months and were about to ‘change up’ their system.
“We thought with the new year we’d try a new type of ticket, but something told us to buy our usual Slikpik 30 just one more time,” they said.
“When we found out we’d won, we screamed so loud, that the whole of Katanning probably heard us.”
They snagged their winning ticket from Katanning Lottery Centre where the owner, Richard Kowald, said there was lots of excitement around town following the news.
“I’ve owned the store nearly 22 years and its always a great moment selling a big Lotto winning ticket,” he said.
