A young Hoppers Crossing man has found the perfect excuse to leave work early - receiving a phone call with news he just became $200,000 richer from today’s Lucky Lotteries Mega Jackpot draw. 

The Victorian player won the guaranteed 1st Prize of $200,000 in Lucky Lotteries Mega Jackpot draw 1499, drawn Thursday 27 August 2020. 

The Melbourne man admitted he had no idea he’d just scored the $200,000 prize until we made contact with him. 

“Are you kidding me?” he questioned. 

“Oh my god! Oh my god! 

“This is insane!

“I have been through a rough patch lately. It’s been such a tough time for everyone!

“You have made my day, my week, my life! 

“God I am working right now, but I have no idea how I am going to concentrate the rest of the day!

“Hopefully I can finish work early. 

“I will definitely be celebrating this weekend. 

“I am never going to forget this phone call! It’s the best phone call I have ever received.” 

When asked how he planned to enjoy his windfall, the elated winner held no hesitation.

“Firstly, I want to donate to the COVID-19 vaccine,” he shared. 

“I have never owned a car! So I am going to get myself one and the rest will go towards a deposit for a home.” 

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