A husband who got in trouble with his wife for buying a lottery ticket has become a millionaire after winning a massive jackpot.  

The married couple from the Perth suburb of Secret Harbour in Western Australia won $1.8million from Saturday’s Division Two $20million Superdraw. 

The husband said his wife wasn’t happy he bought a ticket from The Lucky Charm newsagency as the only prize he has ever won was ‘a six-pack of beer’.

‘I saw how much was on offer, so I decided to buy a ticket,’ the winner said.

‘I got in trouble with my wife when I told her I bought one, but she has taken that back now.’

The couple said a holiday home in the south-west of Western Australia is on the cards, but the win hasn’t caused any major changes to their plans just yet.

‘I’m still going to work tomorrow,’ the husband said. 

The couple is one of two winners to come out of Western Australia. 

Another couple from Kwinana won also the $1.8million in Saturday Lotto Superdraw’s Division One prize.

While grocery shopping, the winner said she noticed a $20 million Superdraw sign outside Kwinana Hub Lottery Centre and News.

‘I said to my son if the line is short we will get one, if not never mind,’ she said.

‘The store was also about to close as well, but it was just the right place at the right time.

‘I have retraced my steps so many times after discovering I had won, asking what if?’

The chance to pay off their mortgage and spend more time with their children is now part of the couple’s plans thanks to the win.

Western Australian players have another chance to join the winners list with Tuesday’s $10 million OZ Lotto jackpot.

All available profits from Lotterywest tickets contribute to the COVID-19 Relief Fund which will help those in the community impacted.
