The million dollar fridge in Dawesville

The retailer took me out the back and said, 'don't lose this ticket'.

A Dawesville man has spent the past three weeks with more than $1 million stuck to his fridge.

The man in his 50's has come forward as the owner of a Saturday Lotto Division One ticket from Miami Newsagency, which is now worth more $1.1 million dollars.

He started playing Saturday Lotto around 7 months ago, and during this time he purchased two tickets for Saturday's draw on 17 April.

"The tickets sat on my fridge for three weeks, until I had to pay my water bill, I thought I might as well check them," he said.

"I went to the retailer, on my first ticket I won $57 and thought 'you beauty'.

"The second ticket told me to contact Lotterywest, the retailer took me out the back and said, 'don't lose this ticket'."

A Harley Davidson, a new house and looking after his children are now part of his plans.
