$100,000 Lucky Lotteries win brings hard-working Balgowlah man to tears
A hard-working Balgowlah man has cried tears of happiness after winning the $100,000 1st Prize in a Lucky Lotteries Super Jackpot draw.
A NSW Lotteries official broke the happy news to the winning man immediately after the draw, giving him a “wonderful surprise”.
His winning entry won the 1st Prize of $100,000 in Lucky Lotteries Super Jackpot draw 10151 on Tuesday 18 April 2017.
“Woohoo! Oh wow! Oh wow!” the man exclaimed.
“I’m so excited. I’m all shaky! Oh you’re a legend! Thanks so much for the good news!
“I’m having a little cry now. That’s wonderful! We’ve worked our arses off all our lives. We’ve never won anything. It’s just fantastic!
“I’ve never had a call like this in all my life!”
The winner plans to use his windfall to take his wife on a European holiday and also move them a step closer to retirement after decades of hard work.
He confessed he’d been a regular Lucky Lotteries player for many years, but had only ever won smaller prizes until now.
“I’ve been buying 20 tickets in each draw for 20 years! I’ve got tickets in all the upcoming draws so you can call me next week with the jackpot!” he joked.
“I’ve been trying to win the jackpot for many years now. That would be fabulous! I could finally retire!”
The man, who wishes to remain anonymous, purchased his winning entry, consisting of 20 consecutive numbers, from North Balgowlah Newsagency, Shop 12, 44 Woodbine Street, North Balgowlah.
North Balgowlah Newsagency owner Janice Zhu said the outlet was celebrating selling a 1st Prize winning entry.
“Congratulations to the winner! We’re so pleased that one of our regular customers has won the big prize!” she exclaimed.
“Hopefully there’s more to come for our customers!”
The Lucky Lotteries Super Jackpot prize is now $8.3 million for draw 10152, while the Lucky Lotteries Mega Jackpot is now $2.2 million for draw 1056.
