Tuesday 11 February, 2014 - A woman in her 50s was excited by the prospect that she could now start doing some charity work after winning the Lucky Lotteries $2 Jackpot prize of more than $2 million.
The winner, from Sydney’s western suburbs, was virtually speechless after a NSW Lotteries official informed her that she’d won the jackpot prize worth $2,075,000.
“Really? I don’t know what to say! Someone must be looking after me,” the shocked winner exclaimed.
“I thought I’d maybe won $10 or something like that. I just can’t believe this!”
The winner, who wishes to remain anonymous, said it was too early to say what she’ll do with her Lucky Lotteries $2 Jackpot windfall.
“I was only saying last week that I wanted to start doing some charity work. This jackpot win now means I’ll be able to make that happen.”
The winning Lucky Lotteries $2 Jackpot ticket in draw 9884 was purchased online via Tatts.com.
Unlike lotto style games where the top prize is often shared between winners, Lucky Lotteries is a draw lottery where the jackpot winner takes the lot. This means the jackpot prize can only be won by a unique Lucky Lotteries $2 Jackpot ticket number.
The jackpot prize in the Lucky Lotteries $2 game is won when the selected jackpot ticket number has already won a cash prize in the same draw.
The Lucky Lotteries $2 Jackpot prize has reverted to the base prize offer of $500,000 for draw 9885.
