Bargo man breathes a sigh of relief after “lovely” $200,000 win
A Bargo man admitted he thought he was having a “lovely dream” when he logged into his online account and saw he won $200,000 in the latest Lucky Lotteries Mega Jackpot draw.
The New South Wales player won the guaranteed 1st Prize of $200,000 in Lucky Lotteries Mega Jackpot draw 1481, drawn Tuesday 31 March 2020.
This afternoon, awe confirmed the win with the man, who was struggling to come to terms with the exciting news.
“Wow! Thank you so much,” he exclaimed.
“I can’t believe it! Even though I can see it on my online account, I still can’t come to terms with it.
“Promise me this isn’t a dream? I feel like if I pinch myself, I am going to wake up and it’s all going to be just a lovely dream.
“I’m scared to log out of my account and to find it’s disappeared! Promise me this is real?
“It’s funny because my wife’s grandmother won a major prize in the past, my wife’s mother also has, and now we have too!
“I always said we’d win one day and now our time has come! It’s just surreal.”
The overjoyed winner admitted that while it was hard to make plans in times like these, he was sure to enjoy every moment of his prize.
“I’ll be doing something with it, don’t you worry!” he laughed.
“I will give half of it to my wife to have fun with. She’ll have plenty of ideas for it. I know she wants to go overseas, but we will have to put that dream on hold for a bit, obviously.
“We will have to escape to the beach instead. We will plan something nice for the future though.
“It will certainly take the stress and worry away in times like these.”
The thrilled man, who wishes to remain anonymous, purchased his winning entry online at thelott.com – Australia’s official lotteries.
