Mum’s the word for Lake Macquarie's $200,000 winner
A Lake Macquarie woman says she can’t wait to spoil her mum after discovering she won the 1st Prize of $200,000 in the latest Lucky Lotteries Mega Jackpot draw.
The New South Wales player won the guaranteed 1st Prize of $200,000 in Lucky Lotteries Mega Jackpot draw 1470, drawn Tuesday 7 January 2020.
This afternoon, we broke the exciting news to the woman, who was completely oblivious to her win.
“How do I know you’re actually from NSW Lotteries? Are you sure you’re not a sophisticated hacker or this isn’t some kind of prank?” she questioned.
“Holy sh*t! How can this be real?” she cried happily after realising the win was real.
“Holy dooley! Wow! Oh my god! Woo-hoo!
“I am absolutely stunned! Completely stunned!
“Gosh I can’t wait to call my family, and my boss, and friends! I can’t wait to tell everyone!
“You have made my day, my week, my month, my year!”
While she would be putting most of her prize in the bank, the ecstatic woman shared she did have a few things she wanted to do with it first.
“I have been wanting to buy a car. Now I actually will be able to get one and I won’t have to get a loan,” she laughed.
“I want to take my mum on a holiday too. I am not sure where, I will let her pick.
“And tonight, I am going to take my mum out for a nice dinner so that we can celebrate. What a fantastic call to answer, thank you!”
The happy woman, who wishes to remain anonymous, purchased her winning entry online at thelott.com – Australia’s official lotteries.
