“Fair dinkum” Stockton pensioner responds to $100,000 Lucky phone call!

A retired pensioner from Stockton received an unexpected phone call today to hear the news he had won the guaranteed 1st Prize of $100,000 in Lucky Lotteries Super Jackpot draw!

“Oh you’re kidding! Ahahaha!” he laughed when he heard the official news from NSW Lotteries.

“Fair dinkum! Oh you’re joking! Are you fair dinkum?

“Ok, right oh!” the winner said as he took a few deep breaths to let the news sink in.

The man’s $100,000 windfall was the guaranteed 1st Prize of Lucky Lotteries Super Jackpot draw 10140, drawn on 16 March 2017.

The man said he was a regular Lucky Lotteries player and had been for years. “

I play Lucky Lotteries every week in fact I always play the Super jackpot,” he explained.

“I never thought this would happen!

“I’m retired so I’ll invest this windfall wisely but I might think about buying myself a few little toys.”

The man, who wishes to remain anonymous, purchased his 1st Prize winning entry for Lucky Lotteries Super Jackpot draw 10140 from Stockton Newsagency, 29 Mitchell Street in Stockton.

Justine Penfold is one of the staff at Stockton Newsagency and was thrilled to have sold a 1st Prize winning entry.

“Congratulations to our winner. We’re very happy it’s gone to a worthy customer!” she exclaimed.

“We’re a small community so it’s good news that the prize has been won by a local.

“We had a feeling it was about our time for a big win and now it’s happened – it’s great news!”

This is the third major prize win for the Newcastle area coming just weeks after a Newcastle grandfather found a Saturday Lotto ticket that had won more than $1 million a year ago while cleaning his car and a private Newcastle syndicate of nine friends, called the Ten Tenors, won $10 million Oz Lotto draw 1202.
