A Blacktown dad says he’s thanking “beginners luck” for his $200,000 Lucky Lotteries win.   

The Sydney resident won the guaranteed 1st Prize of $200,000 in Lucky Lotteries Mega Jackpot draw 1422, drawn Monday 12 August 2019. 

Confirming his win with us this morning, the man revealed he was thrilled to know the news wasn’t a joke. 

“Amen!” he exclaimed. 

“Thank god for that! 

“I’m feeling amazing. I can’t believe it! I thought for sure this had to be some kind of joke. 

“But it’s not! It’s true! 

“I haven’t been playing Lucky Lotteries for very long. This is probably only the second ticket I’ve ever bought! 

“It’s amazing! Amazing.” 

When asked how he planned to enjoy his windfall, the generous dad thought of his family first. 

“I will definitely be sharing it with my family,” he declared. 

“My children are still quite young and this will allow me to start setting them up for their future. 

“And maybe we will take a holiday as well which I haven’t done forever!” 

The happy man, who wishes to remain anonymous, purchased his winning entry online at thelott.com – Australia’s official lotteries.
