An Illawong man has taken a trip down memory lane after scoring his second major Lucky Lotteries win and looks forward to more than $200,000 hitting his bank account.
The southern Sydney man held the 1st Prize winning entry in Lucky Lotteries Mega Jackpot draw 1678, drawn Thursday 6 June 2024. He took home a total prize of $202,014.
When we called to confirm the marvellous news, the winning man shared he’d previously won a Lucky Lotteries 1st Prize about 25 years ago and he’d had a feeling another win was on the cards.
“This past week I’ve had a feeling that something good was coming,” he shared.
“I didn’t think it was possible to win twice in one lifetime. I honestly thought my mind must be playing tricks on me.
“I’m still reeling in disbelief that this has actually happened again. I won a major prize in Lucky Lotteries about 25 years ago.
“It’s going to be nice to kick back a bit more and spend more time with family.”
The man’s winning entry of 10 consecutive numbers was purchased at Newsagency at Mascot, Shop 15, 42 Church Avenue, Mascot.
Newsagency at Mascot manager Alan Tran said he was thrilled to share this milestone with the major lottery winner.
“We’re really happy for our winner. When he came into the store and told us we were equally in shock,” he said.
“This is our first major prize winner in Lucky Lotteries, so it’s a great feeling for us too.
