Helensburgh local wins $100,000!

One Helensburgh local is smiling like the cat that got the cream after she won first prize in Lucky Lotteries Super Jackpot draw 10116 – taking home a prize of $100,000!

The stunned winner explained that she had been purchasing tickets in Lucky Lotteries Super Jackpot draws for years and always bought a single $2.20 ticket.

“I’ve been playing for years and I always buy the $2.20 ticket. My years of persistence have certainly paid off!” the happy woman shared.

“When I checked my ticket on Friday I realised I’d won – I must admit it was a bit of a surprise. “I was very busy over the weekend though – it was business as usual – so I didn’t have time to claim my prize until Monday!

The winner went on to admit the win wouldn’t sink in until she’d received the money and saw the series of zeroes in her bank account.

“I have no idea what I’ll spend it on! I’m waiting to see the money and then I’ll start to think about it,” the winner explained.

The winner, who has chosen to remain anonymous, purchased her first prize winning entry in Lucky Lotteries Super Jackpot draw 10116 on Thursday 1 December 2016 at Helensburgh Newsagency, Shop 7 at 123 Parkes St, Helensburgh.

Kenneth Sandridge is the owner of Helensburgh Newsagency and was thrilled to hear the prize had gone to a local customer.

“Since we found out we sold a winning ticket we’ve had a fantastic response from our customers – everyone’s talking about it and have been hoping it was a local!” Mr Sandridge exclaimed.

“It’s the right time of the year to win so we wish them all the best and hope they enjoy the money!”
