West Aussies scoop three Division One lotto prizes in Saturday Superdraw with tickets bought in Moora, Carine

Western Australia has continued its run of lotto luck, racking up three Division One winners in Saturday night’s Superdraw.

The winners are among 11 nationally who will each take home a $1.8 million slice of the $20 million prize pool.

The good news brings the tally of West Aussie Division One wins to an incredible five in five nights.

Moora Newsagency and Carine Glades Lottery Centre each produced winning Superdraw tickets, while the third ticket was a Lotterywest syndicate of 11 shares purchased from various Lotterywest stores.

Lotterywest spokesperson Pina Compagnone said the trifecta came just days after two locals each took home $5 million prizes.

“That’s now five Division One winners over the last five nights for WA, what an incredible result,” she said.

But don’t despair if you haven’t quite made it into the millionaire’s club, a further 316,695 other WA players are set to collect a prize in Saturday’s Superdraw — including 10 players who will collect $12,241 each.

Last week it was revealed Australians with the first initials of J, A and D took home more than a quarter of jackpot lottery wins last year.

The Lott, a Tabcorp-owned collective of lottery businesses, crunched the numbers for people who have taken home division-one prizes – the prize with the smallest odds of winning and the highest reward.

It found people with the first name initial J had won the most of these prizes in the 12 months to December 31, 2020, followed by those whose name started with A and D.

According to The Lott, 11 per cent of the spoils last year went to those whose names started with J, with Australians whose name started with D taking home 8.14 per cent of the wins, and the A-names close behind with 8.2 per cent.

No one with a first name starting with X or U claimed a major lottery prize last year, while there was only one division one win each for players with an initial of O, Q, and Y.
