InternationalInternational: Australian family's lottery numbers pay off after 20 yearsRating:

An Australian family who collected a nearly $610,000 (US$383,000) lottery jackpot said they have been using the same numbers for nearly 20 years.

The family, from Peel, Western Australia, told Lotterywest officials the ticket they purchased for the April 11 Saturday Lotto drawing at The Lucky Charm Pinjarra bore the same numbers they have been using to play the lottery for two decades.

Their ticket, consisting of family birthday numbers, is now worth more than $610,000.

"We've used these numbers ever since our children were born, almost 20 years ago," the mother said.

"When I went to check my ticket, the store manager told me he wanted to speak to me in private; I thought I was in trouble," the woman recalled.

All available profit Lotterywest makes from every jackpot, draw and ticket goes directly into a COVID-19 Relief Fund to assist the Western Australian community recover.

        20 years same numbers? I bet there are others who have been playing their sets of numbers for far longer & continue to lose. You know who you are. It's just the luck of the draw, nothing else.

          Noise, You are correct on that one.   Been playing same numbers for 15 years.  Nada.  Well once in a while I'll win a few hundred.  I feel like I started all over everytime the matrix changes, but hey even then I've seen people win with their numbers so maybe a matrix change is good.  It was for the lady in Florida and the lady in Colorado.   

           

          Congrats to the winners though.

          Fifteen years on this side of winning a jackpot, hoping to be on the other side soon.

            The winner said, "I thought I was in trouble." Why a guilty concious? Cute!  Staying with the same numbers for 20 years. Amazing.
