A ticket purchased in south-west Perth matched all six of the Australia Saturday Lotto numbers at the weekend and scooped a Division 1 prize of AUD$ 1,116,284. At the moment the identity of the lucky winner or syndicate remains a mystery because no has stepped forward to claim the life-changing prize.
The winning ticket was purchased from a newsagency in Harvey and store owner Steve Forward said news of the win had already stirred up a lot of excitement amongst local residents.
"It’s the talk of the town and everyone is pretty excited," Forward said. "We thought a win like this might be close."
The last time one of Forward's customers claimed such a large prize was nearly five years ago when a local resident won AUD$ 1 million from a November 2009 drawing.
