A Barmera uncle and nephew duo are feeling on top of the world after scoring $200,000 in a recent Lucky Lotteries Mega Jackpot draw.

The South Australian pair scored the 1st Prize in Lucky Lotteries Mega Jackpot draw 1664, drawn Wednesday 24 April 2024.

Their winning entry was unregistered meaning the two men had no idea of their new fortune until late last week when they checked their tickets.

“Haha! Woohoo, that’s amazing!” the winning nephew cheered.

“We can’t believe it. We’re a private syndicate and we’ve been playing for over eight years!

“It’s just the two of us – my uncle and I. We’re over the moon.

“We only check our tickets every eight weeks or so, so we had no idea we were holding an entry worth $200,000 for almost three weeks.

“It’s funny because we heard in the paper that they were looking for a winner and I actually said, ‘I wonder if that’s us!’.

“I think this calls for a family holiday!”

The winning entry of one random number was purchased from Monash Club, 16 Madison Road, Monash.

Monash Club President Darrel Hayes said it was fantastic the venue had helped create a local winner.

“The team and I are thrilled we were able to sell a major winning ticket!” he said.

“We’re looking forward to celebrating with our customers.

“Congratulations to the fortunate winners and we wish you all the best with your prize and your future!”
