An Armadale family has come forward as the winner of a $6 million Powerball prize during last week’s lottery draw.

The husband and wife purchased the winning ticket from Carousel Lottery Centre in Cannington and the 35-year-old man said he had his eyes set on a new barbecue.

“I was at work and had about 100 missed calls from my wife,” he said.

“When she finally got through to me she told me to sit down and not to stress before telling me we’d won Lotto.

“It could have been a combination of nightshift and nerves but while she was busy screaming I began feeling light headed.”

The couple who said they were concerned about not being able to afford their rates before the win said they now had plans to buy a bigger home.
