Powerball: WA Lotto winning tickets sold at Karratha IGA and Midland Gate

Two West Australians won big in Thursday night’s record-breaking $150 million Powerball draw.

The WA residents were two of nine Australians to win a spectacular second division prize, each pocketing $276,000.

State division two winning tickets were sold at The Good Grocer Karratha IGA and the Midland Gate lottery kiosk.

Lotterywest chief executive Colin Smith said the WA community is the winner in tonight’s draw.

“Thanks to WA players and retailers, Lotterywest has once again raised millions of dollars to fund essential community projects, events and initiatives across the state,” Smith said.

“Lotterywest is proud to be the only state government owned and operated lottery in the country, where all available winnings raised from games like Powerball are returned to the WA community.”

In the last seven weeks, more than $27.7 million has been raised thanks to WA players and local retailers.

History was made on Thursday night when a South Australian resident took home the entire division one prize.

The lucky winner has become the country’s biggest lottery winner, taking the baton from a Sydney nurse who pocketed $107 million in 2019.

This weekend, WA players have the chance to join the ranks of millionaires with the $5 million Saturday Lotto draw.

Tickets are available in stores, online and via the Lotterywest app until 6pm on the day of the draw.
