Lucky Lotteries win adds $100,000 bonus to Wollongong woman's holiday

A Wollongong mother is considering extending her holiday after today winning $100,000 1st Prize in Lucky Lotteries super Jackpot draw!

The hard-working woman discovered the news while on holidays with her husband – their first holiday together in a year and a half.

The regular customer purchased her winning entry for Lucky Lotteries Super Jackpot draw 10136 from Figtree Newsagency, Figtree Grove Shopping Centre, corner Princess Highway and The Avenue, Figtree.

The thrilled woman received an added holiday bonus when a NSW Lotteries official confirmed she’d won the $100,000 1st Prize, not $1,000 as she’d originally thought!

“Thank you very much! Oh my God!” the woman exclaimed.

“I went to the newsagent and she said I’d won a prize but I was thinking $1,000, not $100,000!

“I’m on holidays with my husband – it’s been 16 months and we desperately needed a holiday. Perhaps we could take another couple of weeks off! We’re so excited!”

While the woman was keen to use her windfall to pay off the mortgage, she said her husband was eyeing off a new boat. “

It will probably happen, but the boat will be second hand,” she joked.

“I won’t tell the kids either – they’ll be knocking on the door!”

Figtree Newsagency owner Ning Ma congratulated the winner on their windfall.

“It’s great news! It’s beautiful!” she said.

“Lucky Lotteries is really popular here and for the past few years we’ve actually sold a winning ticket about once a year! We’re on a winning streak!”
