Mudgee mum claims $200,000 Lucky Lotteries Mega Jackpot prize!

A mum from Mudgee has won a Christmas bonus she will never forget - scoring the 1st Prize of $200,000 in last week’s Lucky Lotteries Mega Jackpot draw!

While the Lucky Lotteries Mega Jackpot prize continues to climb and has reached more than $7 million, the woman was over joyed to have won the guaranteed 1st Prize in draw 1047!

The regular Lucky Lotteries player said she checked her ticket at home and didn’t believe her eyes when she realised she had the winning ticket which she purchased from Mudgee Newsagency, 77 Market Street, Mudgee costing just $5.50.

“When I saw I had the winning ticket number I burst out crying – they were tears of joy. In fact I’m still crying tears of happiness,” the shocked winner declared.

“It just doesn’t feel real! It’s quite unbelievable! I’ve heard of people winning but I didn’t ever think it would ever be me.

“This win means so much to me and my family. I’ll be able to work less and spend more time with my family. And for Christmas I’ve decided we’ll be packing our bags and heading away on a family holiday!

“It will be a Christmas to remember!”

The happy woman, who wishes to remain anonymous, purchased four numbers for $5.50 each and since she chose them in sequential order she also picked up two consolation prizes of $1,000 for the numbers on either side of the 1st Prize winning number drawn - a total windfall of $202,000.

The 1st Prize winning entry worth $200,000 in Lucky Lotteries Mega Jackpot draw 1045 on Thursday 8 December was purchased at Mudgee Newsagency, 77 Market Street, Mudgee.

Sharon Backenrig is the owner of Mudgee Newsagency and said she was thrilled to have sold a 1st Prize Lucky Lotteries Mega Jackpot ticket.

“I just knew this would happen! Lucky Lotteries entries had been so popular with our customers all week!” Ms Backenrig exclaimed.

“I just hope it was me who sold the winning ticket – it would be an honour to change the life of one of our customers.

“I put a sign up in the window to let everyone know a 1st Prize Mega Jackpot ticket was sold here at Mudgee Newsagency. We sold a 1st Prize Super Jackpot ticket in October 2014 so now we have a matching set!”

The Lucky Lotteries Mega Jackpot continues to climb with the jackpot for draw 1048 sitting at more than $7 million. The Lucky Lotteries Super Jackpot is offering more than $3.88 million for draw 10118.
