A woman in her 30s from Sydney’s north-western suburb of Rydalmere was overcome with emotion after her ticket in today’s Lucky Lotteries Mega Jackpot draw scooped the entire jackpot prize of $7.48 million!
The regular Lucky Lotteries player was hyperventilating when she spoke with NSW Lotteries today as they confirmed the life-changing news that her one number entry in draw 1050 had won the multi-million dollar jackpot prize.
“Oh no! I’m hyperventilating! I’m shaking! I don’t know what is happening! Is it a big prize? We’ve been struggling a lot, please tell me?” the woman quizzed.
“You are kidding me! Oh my gosh! No way! Am I dreaming? This is absolutely surreal!
“My kids always play with my phone and one of them got into my emails and this message from NSW Lotteries popped up with ‘Congratulations’ but it didn’t say what I had won so I thought well that’s probably about winning a free ticket into the next draw!
“So I phoned up to see what it was about and now I’ve found out I won the jackpot – Far out, I can’t believe it!”
The young new multi-millionaire swore she would spend the money thoughtfully.
“You have no idea what this means, I’ve overcome hardship and heartbreak. I never expected to win this much – I was praying for a couple hundred thousand to help pay off the house and to be able to live comfortably!” she exclaimed.
“I won’t change one bit, I’ll volunteer overseas and help where I can. I’ll also put some of the money away in the bank and donate the interest.
“We’ll go on a cruise and I might just splurge on one thing - I do love Chanel handbags,” she laughed.
Her Lucky Lotteries Mega Jackpot ticket won the jackpot prize of $7,480,000 after first winning a $40 cash prize in the same draw.
She purchased a single number entry for $5.50 in the Lucky Lotteries Mega Jackpot draw 1050 from Rhodes News, Shop 2B in the Rhodes Waterside Shopping Centre, 1 Rider Boulevade in Rhodes.
“I like to play Lucky Lotteries and other Lotto games, I’ve got all my favourites! Sometimes I go in with friends too, but this was just a one number entry I got in the draw – I’m just shocked,” the winner explained.
