A Manunda man has struggled to remain composed at work after discovering an unexpected $200,000 windfall in a recent Lucky Lotteries Mega Jackpot draw.

The Far North Queenslander held the 1st Prize winning entry in Lucky Lotteries Mega Jackpot draw 1681, drawn Monday 17 June 2024. He took home a total prize of $200,000.

When we contacted the winning man, the Cairns local struggled to piece words together as he overcame a flood of emotions.

“I’m a bit overwhelmed by this news,” he choked.

“You’ve caught me while I’m at work and I had no idea this is what you were calling about.

“Wow! This is really something. I can see now on my online account that this is really real.

“This is going to make life a heck of a lot easier.”

The winning man couldn’t help but dream of what $200,000 could do for him and his family, starting with a tropical escape and a block of land to build on.

“I’m thinking I’ll finally buy my dream block of land and build a house on it,” he shared.

“I’d also like to ditch this cold weather and go somewhere else that’s tropical for a holiday.”

His winning entry of one random number was purchased on The Lott website – the official home of Australia’s lotteries.
