Gladstone man scores $200,000 1st Prize after buying first-ever Lucky Lotteries ticket
A Gladstone man is now $200,000 richer after winning the 1st Prize in yesterday’s Lucky Lotteries Mega Jackpot draw – the first entry he had ever played in the jackpotting game.
The Central Queensland man won the guaranteed 1st Prize of $200,000 in Lucky Lotteries Mega Jackpot draw 1302, drawn Tuesday 7 May 2019.
We delivered the winning news late Tuesday afternoon, prompting an exclamation of glee from the winning man.
“That’s sensational!” he declared enthusiastically.
“That’s awesome, isn’t it? Wow! Sensational! Thank you so much!
“Wow! I only bought the ticket because I saw the jackpot has reached over $60 million.
“This is the first time I’ve played Lucky Lotteries ever. I can’t believe it. It’s awesome!“I was just sitting at home doing office work and saw the email came through.
“I thought at first it was a dodgy email, but then I checked my online account and saw that I had won.
“It’s just insane! You’ve made the rest of my year!”
When asked how he planned to spend his Lucky Lotteries windfall, the stoked bloke revealed to us his plans were ‘pretty dull’.
“Probably be really boring and mostly I’ll use it to pay off the house. I know it’s dull but that’s most likely what I’ll do!” he laughed.
“I think it’s highly likely we’ll go on a holiday. I’ll have to let it all soak in before I decide what happens.
“I can’t wait to tell my wife – she is going to freak out!
“I think she’ll believe me. I don’t tell too many tales but I’ve got to decide how to break it to her.
“We’ll probably do something to celebrate. I might even have tomorrow off work!
“I think I need to sit down and stop shaking and let it all soak in before I do anything!”
