The Sydney player won the guaranteed 1st Prize of $200,000 in Lucky Lotteries Mega Jackpot draw 1246, drawn Tuesday 12 March 2019.
Confirming his win this afternoon, he told us how he discovered he was $200,000 richer not long after the draw.

“Then I remembered I had a ticket into the draw so I got him to check it.
“I couldn’t believe it when he told me I was the winner!
