A South Brisbane man is suddenly feeling a whole lot better after receiving a phone call with news he’s $200,000 richer while at home sick from work. 

The Queensland player took home the guaranteed 1st Prize of $200,000 in Lucky Lotteries Mega Jackpot draw 1419, drawn Friday 9 August 2019. 

We contacted the man  to break the news while he was recovering in bed. 

“Thank you very much,” he said. 

“Oh my god. You aren’t joking are you? 

“This has really made my day! 

“I’m at home sick from work but I feel a lot better now. This is beautiful news. The best news I’ve ever received!” 

The young man said he’d need to take some time to decide how he’d enjoy his prize. 

“Oh my goodness. I don’t know!” he laughed. 

“I don’t know exactly but I can’t explain how much this is going to help me!

“I will definitely go on a holiday! It will change my life, that’s for sure. 

“And I’ll be celebrating when I’m feeling better!” 

The happy man, who wishes to remain anonymous, purchased his winning entry online at thelott.com – Australia’s official lotteries.
