“I’m so excited!” Townsville woman answers phone to $200,000 winning news
A Townsville woman has declared she is feeling “breathless” and “fuzzy” this afternoon after receiving a phone call with news she won $200,000 in the latest Lucky Lotteries Mega Jackpot draw.
The Queensland player scored the guaranteed 1st Prize of $200,000 in Lucky Lotteries Mega Jackpot draw 1488, drawn Monday 15 June 2020.
This afternoon we called the winner, who had no idea she had just won an incredible $200,000 prize.
“Oh my god! Thank you so much! This is amazing. I am so excited, I’m breathless!” she exclaimed.
“I am just getting ready for work. I had no idea I had won!
“Oh my god! This is absolutely amazing. I am trying hard not to cry right now.
“There’s been so much going on lately. I have been going through a hard time.
“This is a huge relief. It is unbelievable!
“My brain is so fuzzy at the moment.
This is such a shock.
“You have changed my life. Thank you so much!
“I need to settle down before I go to work. I might have to have a cup of tea to calm me down.”
When asked how she planned to enjoy her unexpected windfall, the surprised winner said she couldn’t wait to share it with those closest to her.
“I am going to do lots of sensible things with it,” she said.
“I’ll put some of it towards the mortgage, then I would love to spoil my nieces and my brothers. That’s what I am most excited for.
“I might buy myself a new phone. The one I have is shocking; it barely works anymore. You probably can’t hear me right now, that’s how bad it is.
“God, I keep thinking of more things I could do with it!”
