A Honeywood man says he’s blown away by the news he’s $202,000 richer after winning the latest Lucky Lotteries Mega Jackpot draw.

The thrilled winner took home the guaranteed 1st Prize of $200,000 in Lucky Lotteries Mega Jackpot draw 1173, drawn Friday 7 December 2018. He also won a consolation prize of $2,000, ramping up his total prize to $202,000.

The winner was completely shocked when he received the unexpected phone call from us this afternoon to break the life changing news.

“Holy shmoly,” he exclaimed.

“Wow, I am absolutely amazed and over the moon!

“I’m ecstatic, this is such a beautiful prize.

“What a way to wrap up the working week!

“I play occasionally when there’s a huge draw and I saw Lucky Lotteries had jackpotted to $30 million so I thought I might have a go,” he explained.

“It was as simple as that!”

The Tasmanian winner admitted he was so surprised by the announcement he couldn’t think of exactly what he’d spend the windfall on.

“My mum is in the process of downsizing so I would like to help her out with that,” he said.

“This will take a lot of pressure off the family.

“And we will certainly be celebrating this Christmas.”

The winner, who wishes to remain anonymous, purchased his entry of five consecutive numbers online at thelott.com – Australia’s official lotteries.
