A couple who won almost $900,000 in the Lotto bought their ticket after a psychic told them they would come into some money.
The couple, from Perth’s eastern suburbs, admitted they secured Saturday’s Division One prize after they accepted the clairvoyant’s advice.
‘So we bought a lottery ticket, won a small amount and then used that money to buy another Saturday Lotto ticket,’ the winner said.
‘It was totally out of the blue.

‘I always thought if we won it would be high fives and champagne, but instead we sat there like stunned mullets.’
The clairvoyant missed the mark by more than $250,000, originally estimating the couple would be awarded between $500,000 and $600,000.
The ticket, which the couple purchased from Carramar Lottery Centre and News in Morley, saw them pocket $866,700.
Lotterywest spokesperson James Mooney said the couple’s Lotto experience was another reminder Division One wins are never the same story.
‘This week alone I’ve heard from a player who had their million dollar ticket in their glovebox for a month and another who has used the same numbers for 31 years,’ Mr Mooney said.
Mr Mooney said Thursday night was another opportunity for WA players to join the 2020 winners list with the Powerball jackpotting to $20million.
‘The unique thing about Lotterywest is it’s the only State Government owned and operated lottery in Australia, with the money raised from ticket sales going back into the WA community,’ he said.
