A young Southern Sydney firefighter has had a welcomed distraction during his working day, with the news he won $200,000 in today’s Lucky Lotteries Mega Jackpot draw. 

The New South Wales player won the guaranteed 1st Prize of $200,000 in Lucky Lotteries Mega Jackpot draw 1277, drawn Monday 15 April 2019.

The man was completely oblivious to his good fortune until we interrupted his working day this afternoon to break the exciting news. 

“You’re kidding me?” he questioned 

“Wow! I cannot believe that!

“I’ve been playing for ages but I never expected to receive a call like this, that’s for sure!

“I’m speechless to be honest. 

“I’m over the moon!”

The hardworking firefighter told us he wouldn’t be heading home early to celebrate but would instead take a much deserved holiday. 

“This will definitely be an easier shift knowing I’ve got an extra $200,000 sitting there!” he exclaimed. 

“This prize is so good but I’ll keep playing with the jackpot continuing to grow!

“I’d love to do some more travelling and I’d love to go to the snow. 

“Maybe I will be able to take a longer holiday and stay somewhere amazing. 

“That would be a great celebration!”

The winner, who wishes to remain anonymous, purchased his winning entry of two random numbers online at thelott.com – Australia’s official lotteries.
