Orange woman spends the week unaware she’s holding a $200,000 winning ticket
An Orange woman has spent the past week completely oblivious to the fact she was holding a $200,000 winning Lucky Lotteries ticket.
The New South Wales player won the 1st Prize of $200,000 in Lucky Lotteries Mega Jackpot draw 1489, drawn Monday 22 June 2020.
Confirming her win with us this morning, the woman had no idea she was Orange’s latest lottery winner.
“It couldn’t have come at a better time.
“What exciting news! Thank you so much.
“I’m absolutely thrilled, I had no idea at all.
“It’s crazy to think that I’ve been holding onto this ticket for more than a week without realising it’s worth $200,000!”
When asked how she planned to enjoy her prize, the generous player thought of her family first.
“I have a big family so I’ll be able to share it with plenty of people,” she said.
“It will be lovely.
“I am so excited! Thank you.”
The winning entry of one number was purchased at Orange Central Newsagency, Shop 23, 277 Summer Street, Orange.
Orange Central Newsagency owner Gary Allen said the outlet had been on a winning streak.
“It’s great to hear our latest winner has now come forward,” he said.
“Since owning the outlet we’ve sold five major prize winning entries.
“It’s incredibly fulfilling to know another one of our customers has won a huge prize.
“It’s fantastic for the community of Orange.
“We wish her all the luck with her prize and hope she really enjoys it!”
