$200,000 Lucky Lotteries win heralds debt-free living for Burpengary couple
A Burpengary couple has spent the weekend contemplating how they will use the $200,000 they scored in Friday’s Lucky Lotteries Mega Jackpot draw.
The Moreton Bay region residents won the guaranteed 1st Prize of $200,000 in Lucky Lotteries Mega Jackpot draw 1276, drawn Friday 12 April 2019.
We delivered the winning news late on Friday afternoon, prompting a joyful reaction from the winning woman.
“You’re joking! Are you serious!” she exclaimed.
“You’re not serious!? Oh my god! I’m over the moon. I’m speechless. Speechless!
“You’re quite sure about that figure aren’t you?
“Wait ‘til I tell my husband! We’ve never won anything in our lives. Never! So this is just amazing.”
The couple told us they already had some ideas of how they would use their Lucky Lotteries bounty.
“We’ll pay off the mortgage! That will be nice,” she said.
“That will be life-changing for us to be debt free. We’ve always said if we ever won any money we’d want to be debt free.
“We’re also going on holidays soon to America so this means we can also have a little bit more spending money!
“This is an amazing feeling. I can’t describe it!”
The winning entry of five random numbers was purchased at TSG Burpengary News, Shop 22 Burpengary Plaza, 177-158 Station Road, Burpengary.
TGS Burpengary News owner Prakash Balia said he was thrilled to hear his outlet had sold a major prize.
“When we saw that we had sold a 1st Prize entry we started celebrating immediately!” he exclaimed.
“We were jumping up and down and shouting. We popped a bottle of champagne and have been handing out chocolates to customers.
“We’ve put signs up all over the store and have shared the news on social media so everyone knows we are a lucky outlet!
“We wish our winner all the best with his prize!”
