THE same Lotterywest retail outlet sold two of last night’s division one winners, creating two new Western Australian millionaires.

Galleria Lottery Centre in Morley sold two $1 million tickets with the winners yet to come forward.

Galleria Lottery Centre owner Julie Chew said she was gobsmacked to find out that her store had won twice.

“It’s incredible. It’s so, so lucky and to think it’s lucky to get just one winner, but two!” she said.

“We got a brand new terminal installed just last week so it must be a lucky machine and my husband, Raymond, now works at the store, so he must also be lucky … everybody loves Raymond.”

Lotterywest spokesperson Hermione Coleman said she was excited to welcome the winners into the Winners Room very soon.

“It is unusual, and wonderful, for a store to win twice like this,” she said.
