A Cheltenham man is ‘cracking open the Tim Tams and putting the kettle on’ to celebrate winning $200,000 in today’s Lucky Lotteries Mega Jackpot draw. 

The Melbourne player won the guaranteed 1st Prize of $200,000 in Lucky Lotteries Mega Jackpot draw 1412, drawn Monday 5 August 2019. 

Speaking with us this afternoon to confirm his prize, the happy winner admitted he never expected to receive the exciting call.

“Struth,” he laughed. 

“I am feeling pretty bloody good. 

“I didn’t expect this call. I thought you might be calling to try and sell me some solar panels, or something like that. 

“I definitely did not think you’d be giving me money! 

“That’s some great news I wasn’t expecting. 

“It’s a nice surprise. I am very excited, I have butterflies!” 

When asked how he planned to enjoy his prize, the excited winner declared he had a few plans. 

“I might go on a bit of a holiday. I’d love to go to Sydney,” he shared. 

“Two hundred thousand dollars will take me a lot further than that though, so I might go on a big trip around Australia. 

“I want to do some renovations on the house too. There’s been a few things I’ve been putting off for years, so now I will be able to do them. 

“It will certainly help me a lot!” 

The Melbourne man declared celebrations would begin immediately. 

“I might crack open the Tim Tams and put the kettle on now to celebrate,” he chuckled. 

“I think I’ll take the rest of the day off to just sit and relax and enjoy the fact I’ve won $200,000! 

“I’ll celebrate with my best buddy this weekend too.” 

The thrilled winner, who wishes to remain anonymous, purchased his winning entry of one random number at A to Z Lotto, Kiosk 133A Westfield Southland, 1239 Nepean Highway, Cheltenham. It is the second major prize sold in Cheltenham in two days.  

A to Z Lotto owner Adrian Zalcman said he was thrilled to have heard one of his customers won a major prize. 

“It’s absolutely wonderful,” he said. 

“It’s great for the outlet. We’ve been sharing the news with all our customers and they are so happy for us. 

“We are thrilled for the winner and we wish him all the best. 

“Hopefully we sell the jackpot prize next!”
