Lucky Lotteries bonus entry delivers $200,000 bounty to Cairns woman

A young Cairns woman has won the $200,000 1st Prize in the latest Lucky Lotteries Mega Jackpot draw with a free bonus entry she received when buying her usual registered Gold Lotto entry.
 
The win is the 10th division one and 1st Prize win to land in Far North Queensland so far this year.
 
A Golden Casket official broke the winning news to the Westcourt woman in her 30s this morning while she was exercising, but she admitted the revelation had stopped her in her tracks.
 
“Oh my god!  Are you serious?  Far out!” she exclaimed.
 
“That’s a bit exciting! I’ve never won anything in my life. 
 
“This was actually a bonus ticket I got from buying my lotto entry and registering it to my Winner’s Circle card.  That’s amazing. That’s crazy!”
 
Until 31 August 2017, Golden Casket is surprising random customers with a bonus entry when they purchase a registered entry from a range of selected lottery games.
 
The woman, who wishes to remain anonymous, won the guaranteed 1st Prize of $200,000 in Lucky Lotteries Mega Jackpot draw 1061, which was drawn yesterday.
 
With news of the win still sinking in, the woman confessed she didn’t know how she might spend her windfall.
 
“I have no idea!  I’ll probably just put it in the bank for the moment,” she said.
 
“But it’s a good sign my life is going in the right direction!”
 
The woman’s Lucky Lotteries Mega Jackpot entry of two consecutive numbers was purchased from Balaclava Casket & Newsagency, Shop 2, 391 Mulgrave Road, Westcourt. 
 
Balaclava Casket & Newsagency owner Denise Hoult said the outlet was celebrating selling its first top prize winning entry since they took ownership of the store in 2013.
 
“It’s wonderful news that one of our customers has won!” she exclaimed.
 
“I hope the winner enjoys her windfall and hopefully it’s the first of many big wins for our customers.”
 
The Lucky Lotteries Mega Jackpot prize is now $3.64 million for draw 1062, while the Lucky Lotteries Super Jackpot is now $2.06 million for draw 10170.
 
Golden Casket 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.
