A Port Stephens resident has had her lunch happily interrupted by the revelation she’d won a tasty $200,000 prize in the recent Lucky Lotteries Mega Jackpot draw. 

The Hunter Region resident won the guaranteed 1st Prize of $200,000 in Lucky Lotteries Mega Jackpot draw 1581, drawn on 18 July 2022.

Confirming the win with us, the winning woman confessed she’d suddenly lost her appetite.

“I was enjoying some roast pork and vegetables for lunch but now I feel I’ve got butterflies in my stomach!” she laughed.

“You’re going to make me get emotional! This really is amazing!

“It’s definitely not how you expect to start the week, but it’s definitely made my day.

“We have family overseas so the first thing we’ll do is book tickets to go and visit them.

“Then who knows! I’ll have to have a think about what I’d like to do after that.

“It’s going to provide some security for the future.

“Thank you so much for this wonderful news.”

The woman’s winning entry of five consecutive numbers was purchased at Raymond Terrace Newsagency, Shop 9, Raymond Terrace Marketplace, 35-39 William Street, Raymond Terrace.

Raymond Terrace Newsagency owners Brett and Michelle Sweeney said they were over the moon to have sold a 1st Prize winning entry.

“This is excellent news! What a wonderful thing to discover,” Brett said.

“It’s been a few years since we last sold a major prize-winning entry, so this has made our day.

“We’d like to wish the winner all the best for the future and hope they have a fantastic time with their winnings.”
