A Kingston man can happily say farewell to renting after receiving a phone call from lottery officials revealing he scored $200,000 in today’s Lucky Lotteries Mega Jackpot draw.

The Tasmanian blue-collar worker won the guaranteed 1st Prize of $200,000 in Lucky Lotteries Mega Jackpot draw 1578, drawn Monday 27 June 2022.

“Are you f****** kidding me? You’ve made my day!” he yelled.

“I’m just driving the work truck now, and I have to pull over or I might have a heart attack!

“I won $4,000 in Powerball last week, and I thought that was awesome. This is even better.

“Some might say I’m on a winning streak. That’s cool!

“This is one way to beat the Monday blues. I can’t believe it.”

When asked how he planned to enjoy his blissful bounty, the Apple Isle winner immediately knew it would go towards his first home.

“That’s a house deposit, for sure! I’ve wanted to buy my very own home for such a long time,” he  said.

“I can do it now – sweet!”

His winning entry of 10 random numbers was purchased online at thelott.com – the official home of Australia’s lotteries.
