A Fairfield woman can’t stop smiling and has declared the universe has her back after scoring $200,000 in a recent Lucky Lotteries Mega Jackpot draw.

The Victorian resident held the 1st Prize winning entry in Lucky Lotteries Mega Jackpot draw 1673 on Friday 24 May 2024.

The stunned winner initially ignoring our calls last Friday, believing they were a scam.

“That’s amazing! I can’t believe it!” she exclaimed when she finally took the call about her $200,000 win.

“I got your message, and I thought it had to be a scam. There are so many around at the moment.

“Then I checked my online account and holy! That’s enormous.

“I can’t wipe the smile off my face!

“I’m at work but I have to knock off early. This is too exciting.

“If anyone asks why I’m so happy, I’ll have to say, ‘Because it’s Friday!’.

“I’m not a weekly player. I play every so often when there’s a big jackpot. I saw Powerball was getting big, so I decided to play a couple of different games.

“I always figure I can’t control how things go. If I’m meant to win, the universe will make it happen when it happens.

“I’ll be able to put a fair chunk to the mortgage and maybe use some to celebrate!

“Thank you so much!”

Her winning entry of eight random numbers was purchased via The Lott app – the official home of Australia’s lotteries.
