Nowra woman to celebrate $200,000 win with “a barbecue and a few bourbons”
Celebrations are on the cards for a Nowra woman who discovered she had pocketed $200,000 from the latest Lucky Lotteries Mega Jackpot draw.
The South Coast winner won the guaranteed 1st Prize of $200,000 in Lucky Lotteries Mega Jackpot draw 1126, drawn on Friday 7 September 2018.
Speaking to a NSW Lotteries official this morning to claim her prize, the woman described the moment she discovered her win.
“I still can’t believe it! I checked my ticket on Saturday morning and went onto the website,” she said.
“I just had a look and then all these sparkles came down the screen. I was looking at the computer and then at the ticket. I sang out to someone to come and check it for me.
“It’s just amazing!”
The Nowra resident explained she had a few plans for her Lucky Lotteries windfall.
“I want to upgrade my car, but the rest is going straight into the bank for a rainy day,” she said.
“I’m also going to celebrate by having a barbecue and a few bourbons.”
The winning ticket was purchased at Sturgiss Newsagency, 110-112 Junction Street, Nowra.
Sturgiss Newsagency team member Leonie Blacka said the outlet was celebrating another big win.
“We sold a Set for Life First Prize in November last year, so it’s great to have another win,” she said.
“We’re very excited for our Lucky Lotteries winner and wish them all the very best!”
