A Coogee woman has described her Lucky Lotteries win as a “miracle”, with the 1st Prize of $200,000 coming just days after she retired.

The recent retiree won the guaranteed 1st Prize of $200,000 in Lucky Lotteries Mega Jackpot draw 1296, drawn Thursday 2 May 2019.

The woman was completely oblivious to her win until we contacted her this morning to break the news.

“Oh you’re joking?” she screamed with joy.


“That’s a miracle! I can’t believe it!


“Thank you very much!

“Two hundred thousand dollars did you say? 

“Oh my god. I can’t believe it.

“I’m shaking! That’s just amazing!”

The winner told us the prize had arrived at the perfect time, just as she was about to begin enjoying the next stage of her life. 

“It’s just amazing! I just actually retired from work so this is going to come in handy! It’s the most perfect timing,” she explained.

“It’s so great! I’m shaking so much I think I need to sit down and have a cup of tea or something to calm down!

“Oh god I don’t know what I will do with the prize! I have a few repairs to do around the house so I’ll probably get those done!

“This is just so fantastic I might cry!”

The woman, who wishes to remain anonymous, purchased her winning entry of one random number at Clovelly Local Newsagent, 313 Clovelly Road, Clovelly.
