A young university student from Hillsdale has an ‘inspiring feeling’ to thank for his $200,000 windfall after taking home the 1st Prize in today’s Lucky Lotteries Mega Jackpot draw. 

The eastern Sydney man won the guaranteed 1st Prize of $200,000 in Lucky Lotteries Mega Jackpot draw 1237, drawn Monday 4 March 2019. 

The quintessential student was asleep when he received our life-changing phone call and confessed he hadn’t expected to hear us on the end of the line. 

“Oh my god! Thank you!” he exclaimed once the news had sunk in. 

“I was sleeping when you called. 

“I think I need to sit down, have a coffee and let the news settle in a bit! 

“I just had a feeling last week. I had this inspiring feeling to buy a ticket. Then I saw the big jackpot and I thought something was telling me to buy an entry. 

“I’m glad I did! I only just started playing!” 

The young man revealed he would enjoy some of his windfall whilst saving some for his future. 

“I think I’ll travel a bit. Maybe Europe or America – the whole world is right in front of me at the moment!” he laughed. 

“I am still quite young, so I will save some for my future. I’ll put it towards a house.” 

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