“I’ve never won anything!”: Rockhampton retiree in disbelief after $200,000 lottery win
A Rockhampton retiree is on cloud nine after landing $200,000 in this morning’s Lucky Lotteries Mega Jackpot draw, declaring it’s the first time in his life he’s ever won anything.
The Central Queenslander scored the guaranteed 1st Prize of $200,000 in Lucky Lotteries Mega Jackpot draw 1551, drawn Tuesday 23 November 2021.
Straight after the draw, we dialled the winning man, who was left mind-boggled by the life-enhancing news.
“I’ve never won anything in my life! I’m speechless!” he exclaimed.
“This is a very pleasant surprise. I had a few missed calls, and I went straight to check my email. That’s when I saw an email from The Lott about my win.
“I went to check my online The Lott account and there it was, $200,000!
“Lucky Lotteries is my go-to game to play. I purchase tickets once or twice a month.
“I’m going to make a cup of coffee and process all of this.”
When asked how he planned to enjoy his good fortune, the euphoric man said he was too astonished to make any concrete plans at this stage.
“My mind is all over the place right now to think of anything. Fortunately, I do own my house and my car, so there’s no need to pay that off,” he shared.
“Perhaps a short holiday in the future would be nice. We’re a bit limited to where we can go right now!
“Thank you so much.”
His winning entry of two random numbers was purchased online at thelott.com – the official home of Australia’s lotteries.a
