“My god! I’m shaking. Unreal! Sh*t! Unbelievable! Phwoah! Man!
“I certainly was not expecting this phone call. Bloody hell!
“I haven’t been playing Lucky Lotteries that long at all. I didn’t know anything about the game until a friend put me onto it.
“I thought ‘I’d better have a crack at that!’.
“Sh*t! Two hundred thousand? Jesus!
“You don’t know how good this is. Far out! This is excellent! Fantastic!
“I’m going to have to take my friend who recommended the game to me out for a drink!
“I’m going to keep playing! That jackpot is still out there so maybe you can call me again soon!”
The hardworking night-shift truck driver said he was heading to tonight with a huge smile on his face.
“You’ve just made my day!” he laughed.

“I’m over-the-moon! It’s unbelievable!” he declared.
“It’s still sinking in! Unreal!
"I’ve got a house to pay off – that will take a good chunk off the mortgage.
“There are so many things it can help with. A holiday for a start!
“I was thinking of a cheap holiday over to Asia but now I think I’ll upgrade and go to Las Vegas!
“I’ll definitely do something fun with it!
“Most of it will go to the mortgage so this will ease the pain of that right up!”
