 An Australian couple who have played the same lottery numbers for more than 35 years won nearly $800,000 — their second jackpot using the digits.

The Hamilton Hill, Western Australia, couple, who are in their 60s, told Lotterywest officials the Saturday Lotto ticket they bought from Hamilton Hill News agency bore the same set of birthday numbers they have been using for more than 35 years.

The ticket earned the couple a $789,288 Division One prize.

The couple said the numbers had proven lucky before.

“We managed to win Division Two with the same numbers around 35 years ago and did say that one day we’d win the big one,” they said.

Moved to the Big Tomata in the nineties from San Francisco. No Suburbs for me with its single colored houses and lawns and the excitement of pulling out my trash can once a week. I'm a CityFella , a part time New Yorker. I'm happiest in the Center City where people the streets and people are alive. I'm still waiting to buy a 34th floor condo somewhere downtown/Midtown with a nightclub. "Hurry I'm old" My politics are somewhere in the middle with a needle that constantly moves. I'm too liberal to be a Republican and too conservative to be a Democrat. Everything interests me . I've come to love Sacratomato, Its a nice town in cheap sensible shoes .
