More than a month after the draw Granville couple claim $200,000 prize
More than a month after the draw a Granville couple have come forward to claim their ‘fantastic’ $200,000 Lucky Lotteries Mega Jackpot prize.
The New South Wales players won the guaranteed 1st Prize of $200,000 in Lucky Lotteries Mega Jackpot draw 1465, drawn Wednesday 18 December 2019.
Speaking with us this morning, the happy woman explained the couple had no idea they’d won until they finally checked their ticket yesterday.
“Isn’t it just fantastic?” the winning woman exclaimed.
“I want to shout it out to the whole world!
“It’s funny because my hubby was sitting in the lounge room and he said to me, ‘come here I need to talk to you’, and I thought ‘what’s this about now?’ I thought it must be bad news.
“Then he screamed happily, ‘it’s a winner!’ and threw the ticket at me.
“We were so happy. We were jumping up and down and laughing.”
When asked how the pair planned to enjoy their prize, the Sydney woman said she already knew exactly how she’d spend it.
“I think we will celebrate and go on a romantic holiday together. We will probably go on a cruise,” she explained.
“We will also pay off some of our mortgage and give some to our family.”
The entry of three random numbers was purchased at Granville Newsagency, 26 South Street, Granville.
Granville Newsagency owner Feng Qi said he was thrilled to have made one of his customers a major prize winner.
“I am very happy the winner has come forward,” he said.
“What great news for them to discover! I can only imagine how happy they must be.
“We’d like to send our congratulations to the winner and wish them all the best.
“We hadn’t sold a major prize in a little while, so hopefully this is the start of a winning streak.”
