A Port Stephens man finished work on Friday in the best possible way – with the revelation he’d just scored $200,000 in the latest Lucky Lotteries draw.

The New South Wales resident held the 1st Prize winning entry in Lucky Lotteries Mega Jackpot draw 1671 on Friday 17 May 2024.

“Woohoo!” the winning man cried.

“I feel much better now, thank you!

“I’ve finished work and just checked my phone.

“The weekend takes on a whole different perspective now!

“I don’t normally play Lucky Lotteries, but I have dabbled in the past. I had something left over in my account, so I thought I’d grab a ticket.

“I just had a feeling. I had a feeling I would win.

“You’ve made our year. This is a deposit on a house. This will get us what we need and get us out of the rental trap.

“We’ve had a shortlist of dream homes, but we never thought we’d get there. Now we can!”

The man’s winning entry of 10 random numbers was purchased via The Lott app – the official home of Australia’s lotteries.
