Success by name, success by nature.
A suburb in Western Australia with a very appropriate name is the happiest of the country after a series of lottery prize winners had bought their tickets there.
Success, south of Perth, strengthened its position as the official lottery lottery this week after it was revealed that a father-of-three had taken $ 439,800 after having driven more than 20 km to buy tickets at two of his newsagents.
Robyn McDermott, owner of both stores where the winning tickets have been sold, told Daily Mail Australia with a name like & # 39; Success & # 39 ;, the suburb delivers exactly what the intention was.

& # 39; I've said this all the time: & # 39; What else would you be able to do if you were to live and do business in an area called Success? & # 39 ;, said McDermott.
Cockburn Gateway Lottery Center has won two awards, while Gateways News & Lottery Center has won three divisions.
Together, the five victories have won winners with almost $ 5 million in prize money.
Ms. McDermott said the huge winning streak started in February when a young local couple bought a Slikpik 18 from Gateways News and Lottery Center and won $ 2.1 million.
Then a family from Wellard arrested $ 1 million after buying a similar ticket from the same location.
In August, another local man was one of the six winners of the national division who took part in the prize pool and took home $ 670,000.
In September, luck was visited by a single train driver from the city of Cockburn, who won $ 408,000 after buying a Slikpik 25.
Success confirmed his position as the lottery's official hotspot this week after it revealed that a father-of-three took $ 439,800 after driving more than 20 miles to buy tickets at two newsagents in Cockburn Gateway Shopping City

After hearing the mall's reputation, this week's winner convinced his reluctant wife to make the trip to Cockburn Gateway Shopping City to try their luck.
& # 39; My wife was not so enthusiastic about the idea that I was a little crazy to believe in these things, & # 39; the man told Lotterywest.
In fact, the first week she refused, but the following week I convinced her to take a chance. & # 39;
But when the couple arrived at the mall, the man discovered that there were two locations to buy lottery tickets – so he bought one of each.
I remembered that one had three victories and the other one had one victory, but it was a bit confusing what that was.
& # 39; So I bought a ticket from each, which really got my wife going!
& # 39; But now that we have succeeded, we can not stop laughing. & # 39;
