A Dawesville man randomly checked the Lotto tickets that had been stuck on his fridge for three weeks… and won $1.1 million.
Also, get this: the man, in his 50s, had only started playing Saturday Lotto around seven months ago.
Say what now.
“The tickets sat on my fridge for three weeks, until I had to pay my water bill, I thought I might as well check them,” he said.
“I went to the retailer, on my first ticket I won $57 and thought ‘you beauty’.
“The second ticket told me to contact Lotterywest, the retailer took me out the back and said, ‘don’t lose this ticket’.”
A Harley Davidson, a new house and looking after his kids are now part of his plans.
This is your reminder this weekend’s Saturday Lotto is $20 million.
So, dunno about you guys but I’m gonna leave my ticket on the fridge for three weeks because clearly this is the winning formula I’ve been missing.
