'I nearly choked on my can of JD and coke': Latest WA Lotto winners come forward

WA's latest Lotto millionaires - including a young FIFO worker - have begun to arrive at Lotterywest HQ in Perth to claim their winnings.

Four out of the five Division 1 Megadraw winners from the weekend have come forward to each collect their $1.4 million prize.

A family of four from Willetton, who have barely slept since finding out about their win, were among those to be welcomed into the Lotterywest "winners room."

"Everyone freaked out, we've literally had about two hours sleep since Saturday night," the father said.

"At one stage I gave up trying."

The family said a desperately needed new car was among the first things they would buy with the money.

"What's wrong with our car - it's more a case of what's right with it?" the father joked.

"I can now treat myself to a manly car that can actually fit us all in."

Following closely behind the family of four was a FIFO worker from Wundowie.

"I nearly choked on my can of JD and coke when I found out," he said.

"This win means more time with my wife and kids after really struggling to be away from them.

"FIFO just about nailed me, it was a choice between my health and the money."

A middle aged couple from Hillarys and an Aveley woman in her 40s were the other lucky winners.

Lotterywest is still waiting to hear from the owner of the winning ticket sold at Helena Estate Pharmacy and News.

A $40 million OZ Lotto jackpot will be drawn on Tuesday tonight followed by a $35 million Powerball jackpot on Thursday.

"We ended 2017 with 70 WA Division 1 Lotto winners sharing in over $130 million," Lotterywest spokeswoman Pina Compagnone said.

"Here's hoping our 2018 tally of winners kicks-off tonight."

WA players have until 6pm jackpot day to buy their tickets.
