The winning ticket was issued at Woodley’s Central Newsagency and Lottery Centre in Mandurah.
Owner of the store Wayne Woodley said it’ been a long time since the Lottery Centre has seen a big win.
“We haven’t won big for about eight or nine years and to sell a winning ticket for both a Division One and Division Two prize in Saturday’s draw is very exciting,” he said.
“They do say when it rains it pours, and we’re stoked to have broken our drought.”
One of the winners told Lotterywest that the group of colleagues have been buying tickets together for years.
“We’ve been buying lottery tickets together for nine years, we’re like a little family,” they said.
“We picked the numbers based on our favourite numbers and birthdays.”
