A SPUR of the moment decision to grab a Lotto ticket while shopping has delivered a $1million Division 1 Lotto prize to a family from the Peel region.
The family picked up their winning Lotto ticket from Miami Newsagency in Falcon in last Wednesday's Lotto draw (1 August).
The family said there was something about the Miami outlet which just felt lucky.
"I can't explain it, I just get a good feeling when I'm in there," the Mum said.
Although the family shared the million dollar Division 1 prize pool with another national winner, new game changes introduced to Monday and Wednesday Lotto in March has increased the Division 1 prize to a guaranteed $1million for up to two players. This meant both players picked up $1 million each.
The family said the million dollar Lotto windfall, which had still not sunk in, had taken the pressure off financially.
"We can now have the honeymoon we couldn't afford to have when we got married," the winners said.
The Wednesday Lotto win brings the number of Division 1 winners in Western Australia this year to 46. These winners have shared in almost $50 million.

Western Australian Lotto winners are not the only ones to benefit from Lotto draws with Lotterywest directing 33 cents of every dollar spent on lottery products in this State to the local community.
This funding helps community groups like the Peel Preservation Group who received a $5,336 Lotterywest Grant this year, to help with land care activities aimed at preserving the natural qualities of the Peel-Harvey catchment.
