A Quirindi woman who received lottery tickets for Mother’s Day has finally discovered her $200,000 win in Lucky Lotteries Mega Jackpot after having them hanging on the fridge for more than a week.

The North West Slopes resident won the 1st Prize of $200,000 in Lucky Lotteries Mega Jackpot draw 1571, drawn Wednesday 11 May 2022.

Confirming her exciting win with us this morning, the merry mother explained the rain had prompted her to check her lottery tickets.

“Oh, my goodness! It’s fabulous!” she laughed.

“I received some lottery tickets for Mother’s Day last weekend, and I hung them up on the fridge because some were yet to be drawn.

“We work in the agricultural industry, and because it’s raining a lot today, we don’t have a lot to do. So, I made myself a coffee, and I noticed the lottery tickets hanging on the fridge.

“I went to check them on The Lott website, and I noticed one of them said I’d won a major lottery prize. At first, I thought it was $20,000, but then I saw the extra zero.

“That’s when I realised I’d won the 1st Prize and it’s $200,000! It’s amazing. I can’t believe it.

“Honestly, if it wasn’t raining today, I probably wouldn’t have checked the ticket until I had another moment!

“I completely forgot today is also Friday the 13th. That’s classic. I’ve blown that superstition out of the water.

“My father always played Lucky Lotteries since they funded the Sydney Opera House, so this makes this win extra special. I’m sure looking down at me today and is super chuffed.

“You never know what a new morning is going to bring! This is just incredible.”

When asked how she planned to enjoy her $200,000 windfall, the winner said she would put it towards her farm.

“We’re going to put it all into our farm and continue helping out the community!” she shared.

“I dare say I’ll take all my children to a lovely dinner to celebrate, especially for gifting me this wonderful Mother’s Day gift!”

Her winning entry was purchased at Quirindi Newsagency, 184 George Street, Quirindi.

The Quirindi Newsagency team is thrilled to have sold the 1st Prize winning entry in Lucky Lotteries Mega Jackpot and wish their winner all the best with their prize.
