Maclean's secret $200,000 'lucky' winner!

One person is walking around Maclean keeping a big secret – they’re $200,000 richer after winning first prize in Lucky Lotteries Mega Jackpot draw 1046!

The secretive person purchased their winning single ticket number costing $5.50 from Maclean Newsagency, 95 River St, Maclean.

As the mysterious winner registered their entry to a Players Club Card, NSW Lotteries officials were able to ring the winner with the life-changing news and confirm their prize shortly after the draw.

However, just who won the guaranteed first prize of $200,000 will remain a mystery as the winner has chosen to stay completely anonymous – keeping their exciting news and how they’ll spend their prize a secret between themself and their loved ones.

Sebastian Fear is the manager of Maclean Newsagency and was thrilled the outlet had created another Lucky Lotteries winner.

“Over the 15 years we’ve been open we’ve seen plenty of Lucky Lotteries winners come through!” Mr Fear exclaimed.

“Back in 2004 we sold the winning Lucky Lotteries Super Jackpot winning entry which was worth $10.5 million! Since then we’ve sold a lot of tickets in those draws – we must be a ‘lucky’ newsagency!

“We’ve had lots of success over the years but it’s always nice to have another winner.

“We wish the lucky winner well and hope they enjoy their prize.”

NSW Lotteries spokesperson Tess Cameron said delivering the dream-come-true news about first prize wins at this time of the year was always special.

“People are generally already in a festive, relaxed mood as we enter December so receiving news like this is just the cherry on top – of a Christmas pavlova!” Ms Cameron laughed.

“Recent winners we’ve spoken with have told us they will put a portion of their win towards making their Christmas extra special – taking their family out for lunch, putting a few more presents under their tree and sharing with those less fortunate.

“It’s lovely to think about how the news of a windfall can brighten a winner’s Christmas,” Ms Cameron explained.

“At this time of the year people also start thinking about their New Year’s Resolutions and I’m sure some of our winners this month will put their prize towards turning over a new leaf or trying something they’ve always dreamed of.”
