Parkes woman catches the 'Lucky bug' after $200,000 win!

A woman from the New South Wales country town of Parkes has had a change of ‘luck’ after winning the 1st Prize in today’s Lucky Lotteries Mega Jackpot draw 1050 – a prize of $200,000!

The happy winner admitted she got quite the surprise when NSW Lotteries confirmed she’d won the 1st Prize since she normally never wins a thing!

“Oh god! I’m not usually a lucky person, I never win anything!” she exclaimed.

“So even though I don’t consider myself to be lucky, Lucky Lotteries is my favourite game because it’s affordable. I had three tickets in this draw; each had just one number for $5.50.

“When I got an email from NSW Lotteries saying I’d won a significant amount I thought it might be $1000 or so!

“I had no idea how much I’d won until now, so $200,000 is certainly a surprise!

“Now I can finally complete a few little jobs and renovate my home.

“And I suppose I can no longer say I’m unlucky,” she laughed.

The winning woman, who wishes to remain anonymous, purchased her 1st Prize winning entry in Lucky Lotteries Mega Jackpot draw 1050, from Parkes Newsagency, 284 Clarinda Street in Parkes.

Greg and Christene Nash are the owners of Parkes Newsagency and were delighted to have sold another winning ticket to a local customer.

“We’re feeling extremely lucky lately!” Mr Nash exclaimed.

“We’ve been here for a round about nine years and for a while we were puzzled about what it took to sell a major prize – Now I’d say we’ve got the hang of it!

Parkes Newsagency has now sold a trifecta of winning Lucky Lotteries tickets – A 1st Prize of $200,000 in today’s Mega Jackpot draw, a jackpot prize of $8.8 million in last July’s Super Jackpot draw, and a 1st prize of $100,000 in a Super Jackpot draw in December 2015.

“We just want to continue the luck rolling in Parkes! We’re all currently rocking and rolling for our annual Elvis Festival – so who knows, our next winning customer to roll up could even be a die-hard Elvis Presley fan!”

The Lucky Lotteries Mega Jackpot is now offering $1 million for draw 1051. The Lucky Lotteries Super Jackpot continues to climb with the offer for draw 10125 now sitting at more than $4.79 million.

NSW Lotteries customers can purchase a single ticket number into the Lucky Lotteries Super Jackpot for $2.20 and the Lucky Lotteries Mega Jackpot for $5.50. For your chance to make today your ‘Lucky’ day, why not get your paws on a Lucky Lotteries ticket at your local NSW Lotteries outlet or online.
