Generous Umina dad spoils kids with $200,000 Lucky Lotteries win
A generous Umina dad is looking forward to spoiling his kids after discovering he scored $200,000 in today’s Lucky Lotteries Mega Jackpot draw.
The Central Coast winner won the guaranteed 1st Prize of $200,000 in Lucky Lotteries Mega Jackpot draw 1371, drawn Monday 1 July 2019.
As well as winning the coveted 1st Prize, the man also scored a consolation prize of $2,000, bolstering his total prize to $202,000.
Confirming the life-changing discovery with us this afternoon, the thrilled winner revealed he’d only just got home from checking his ticket at the newsagency.
“I was just over at the newsagency and the girl scanned the ticket and then everything went really quiet,” he explained.
“After a few moments she leaned over and said to me really quietly ‘it looks like you’ve won something’.
“So she went out the back to double check the numbers before coming out to tell me what I’d won 1st prize!”
The regular player revealed he’d been hoping for this moment for years.
“I’ve probably been playing Lucky Lotteries all my life!” he laughed.
“I’ve won a few hundred dollars here and there but the most I’ve ever won is $500 so nothing like this! This is the most ever!”
When asked how he planned to enjoy his Lucky Lotteries windfall, the generous winner confessed he hoped to spoil his kids.
“I’m sure the kids will be happy to help me spend the win!” he said jokingly.
“We are going overseas next year so we’ll be putting this towards that trip too.”
The regular player, who wishes to remain anonymous, purchased his entry of 10 consecutive numbers at Umina Beach Newsagency, 310 West Street, Umina.
Umina Beach Newsagency owner Gregory Handley said he was thrilled his outlet had sold another Lucky Lotteries Mega Jackpot prize.
“We’ve sold a few over the years but the last was about 18 months ago,” he explained.
“We’ve sold a 3rd Prize and a 2nd Prize in the last couple of weeks and now we’ve sold a 1st Prize hopefully the jackpot is next!
“We are thrilled for our winner and wish them all the best!”
