A Perth couple who are Set for Life after scooping a Lotto win are celebrating with champagne and chicken nuggets.

The pair from Gnangara had no idea Lotterywest was on the lookout for the owner of a winning Set for Life ticket worth $20,000 a month for 20 years.

The ticket from Wanneroo Winners Lotto Kiosk matched the numbers to the life changing prize last month, with the search for the ticket dragging on for more than two weeks.

“It had been in my wallet the whole time,” the winner said.

“I am known for losing my wallet and I was leaving it all over the place the past week.”

The couple plan to let the dust settle before deciding what to do with the win, however their first port of call was rather simple.

“We’re celebrating with champagne and chicken nuggets,” they said.

Lotterywest spokesperson Pina Compagnone said the win was one of WA’s 36 Division One winners for 2021 so far.

“This weekend will see a Division One prize of $20 million go up for grabs in Saturday’s Superdraw,” she said.

“Thanks to our players, Lotterywest is able to give grants to community organisations that are working to build a better WA.”

Tickets for this weekend’s Superdraw are available until 6pm on Saturday from Lotterywest in-store, online or via the app.
