Hoppers Crossing man receives $200,000 winning phone call while at work!
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.
