A professional Glenorchy man has had the ‘shock of his life’ after this afternoon discovering he is now $200,000 richer from scoring 1st Prize in today’s Lucky Lotteries Mega Jackpot draw. 

The Tasmanian player won the guaranteed 1st Prize in Lucky Lotteries Mega Jackpot draw 1394, drawn Monday 22 July 2019. 

The man was oblivious to his win until he logged into his online account to check his ticket this afternoon. 

“Ok, you might have to call an ambulance because I think I’m having a heart attack!” he joked. 

“That is just extremely unexpected but very good news. Thank you! 

“When I looked up my online account and saw I had won I nearly swallowed my tongue. It’s absolutely outstanding! 

“Completely unexpected is putting it mildly!” 

When asked how he planned to enjoy his Lucky Lotteries windfall the happy winner confessed he initially had no clue on how he’d spend it. 

“Absolutely no idea!” he laughed. 

“I am about to head off on a holiday to Singapore so I think I’ll use some of the windfall to upgrade some elements of our trip. 

“I definitely won’t be counting the pennies while I am on holiday! 

“I’ll be able to relax on my holiday with my partner and all is beautiful in the world.” 

The distracted winner said he would find it hard to concentrate at work for the rest of the day. 

“If I’d won the jackpot prize there would be a smoke trail where I am standing, but I’d better get back to work,” he laughed. 

“I’ll be walking around with a smile all afternoon as this phone call has certainly made my life less boring!"

The happy winner, who wishes to remain anonymous, purchased his entry of two random numbers online at thelott.com – Australia’s official lotteries.
