A car upgrade is at the top of the shopping list of a Narrabri man who wheeled in a $200,000 1st Prize in the recent Lucky Lotteries Mega Jackpot draw. 

The North West Slopes resident held the 1st Prize winning entry in Lucky Lotteries Mega Jackpot draw 1558, drawn Thursday 27 January 2022. 

When we spoke to the winner this morning to confirm the thrilling news, he admitted he’d been waiting for a win to come his way for a long time. 

“I’m sort of numb! It’s a wonderful feeling!” he laughed. 

“I’ve been playing Lucky Lotteries for a while. I’d say for 30 or 40 years, so it feels great to have finally won. 

“Yesterday morning, I went to grab another lottery ticket, and while I was there, I thought I’d check my Lucky Lotteries ticket, but it hadn’t been drawn yet. 

“Then, last night, I checked the ticket straight after the draw, and that’s when I discovered I’d won $200,000! I’ve been waiting for a call from The Lott to see if it was real! 

“It’s time that I upgrade my current car. I’d say it’s 15 to 20 years old. I don’t have any other plans at this stage, but I’ll definitely sleep on it overnight!” 

The man’s winning entry of 10 random numbers was purchased at Shop 2390 Narrabri, 80 Maitland Street, Narrabri. 

Shop 2390 Narrabri store manager Mark Crutcher said the win was a momentous occasion for his outlet. 

“We’re ecstatic to have sold our first major lottery prize since opening the store. Finally, someone from our store has won big! We hope this is the beginning of many more,” he said. 

“We will definitely be celebrating this milestone in our store this week. We all might treat ourselves to a glass of bubbly! 

“Congratulations to the winner, and we hope you enjoy the prize for years to come.”
