A group of work friends have won $ 592,000 in the Lotto after 20 years of competing for the big cash prize.
The syndicate bought their winning ticket at The Lucky Charm in Baldivis, south of Perth, taking home the Saturday Lotto division one prize.

The group was ready to give up their hopes for victory before they pocketed the six figures.
“We actually said this was going to be the last round,” said one of the winners.
“We said if we didn’t win after 20 years, we would never win.”
An online player with a Lotterywest membership also took home nearly $ 25,000 by matching the numbers with a Super66 prize.
Lotterywest spokesman Pina Compagnone said WA is now home to 71 Division One winners this year.
That could grow again with this weekend’s Million-Yeah Saturday.
“Million-Yeah Saturday, gives players the chance to be one of up to ten millionaires,” said Ms. Compagnone.
“If there are up to ten Division One winners, we increase their prize so that they each take home at least $ 1 million and if there are more than ten winners, the $ 10 million prize pool will be divided among them.”
