A Perth Lotto player is Set for Life — but they might not know it.

Lotterywest is calling on anyone that bought a Set for Life ticket for the May 30 draw to check it, with a division one prize still unclaimed.

The ticket was purchased from Wanneroo Winners Lotto Kiosk, and the person who has it can collect $20,000 a month for the next 20 years, a total prize of $4.8 million.

Naomi Downes from Wanneroo Winners Lotto Kiosk said their store has been abuzz with players hoping to be the first WA Set for Life division one winner for the year.

“There’s been quite a few players coming through and checking their tickets,” she said.

“It’s created a bit of a hype and we’re asking anyone who bought a ticket from our store to check it.”

As the ticket is unregistered it means Lotterywest can’t contact the owner to let them know they are holding onto a prize of $20,000 a month for 20 years.
