Hunter Region man to start wildlife refuge with $200,000 Lucky Lotteries win!

A Hunter Region man’s dream of creating a wildlife refuge is a step closer to reality after this morning discovering he had won the guaranteed 1st Prize of $200,000 in a Lucky Lotteries Mega Jackpot draw a fortnight ago!
NSW Lotteries was initially unable contact the registered player after the draw, but this morning finally confirmed his prize.
“That’s beautiful!  Thank you!  Thank you very much!” the happy man exclaimed.
“We bloody will enjoy it!  We initially thought it might have been a bit of a leg pull!”
The regular Lucky Lotteries player said his prize would help him realise a long-standing dream to start a wildlife refuge.
“I’m hoping to try and buy some land where we can release wildlife and start up a wildlife refuge,” he said.
“We’d like to get some land adjoining a national park so we can rear animals, and release them and they can come back if they want to come back.
“Around here we’ve got snakes, birds, kangaroos, quolls and all sorts of things.  We want to set it up so we can handle anything.”
The winning man won the guaranteed 1st Prize of $200,000 in Lucky Lotteries Mega Jackpot draw 1056 drawn on Thursday 4 May 2017.
The man, who wishes to remain anonymous, purchased his entry of two consecutive numbers from Greta Newsagency, 92 High Street, Greta.
Greta Newsagency owner David Taylor said the store was celebrating selling another 1st Prize winning Lucky Lotteries entry.  
“Congratulations to the winner!  We hope they enjoy their prize!” he said.
“We actually sold two 1st Prize winning tickets a fortnight apart in 2013 so hopefully the winning run is back!
“It’s funny as a customer was only looking at our winning plaques last week and said we were due to get another win soon.  And we have!
“I’m not sure what makes us lucky – perhaps it’s because we’ve been here 38 years!”
The Lucky Lotteries Super Jackpot prize is now $890,000 for draw 10161, while the Lucky Lotteries Mega Jackpot is now $2.68 million for draw 1058.
