Mount Cotton truck driver to ‘chuck a sickie’ after discovering Lucky Lotteries win
A Mount Cotton truck driver is planning on ‘chucking a sickie’ to celebrate the revelation he won $200,000 in the latest Lucky Lotteries Mega Jackpot draw.
The Queensland player took home the guaranteed 1st Prize of $200,000 in Lucky Lotteries Mega Jackpot draw 1368, drawn Thursday 27 June 2019.
Speaking with us this morning, the elated father said although he had just checked his ticket online, he couldn’t comprehend the news he had won.
“Oh no, are you fair dinkum?” he laughed.
“I haven’t stopped shaking since I saw it online. I didn’t think it was real.
“God this is just crazy!
“My son has just handed me a beer, so I guess celebrations have begun.
“I never drink during the week, or this early, but I guess today is an exception.
“I think I am going to have to call my boss and tell him I can’t come in today. I don’t think I will be able to concentrate.”
When asked how he planned to use his prize, he admitted he had a few plans in mind.
“I am going to pay some bills and help my family first,” he shared.
“Then I would love to buy a campervan. I have wanted to get one for ages. I want to go travelling around Australia!”
The happy man, who wishes to remain anonymous, purchased his winning entry online at thelott.com – Australia’s official lotteries.
