When a Townsville mum received a phone call from lottery officials revealing her $200,000 Lucky Lotteries Mega Jackpot win, her eyes immediately widened, and tears streamed down her face.

The Far North Queenslander scored the 1st Prize of $200,000 in Lucky Lotteries Mega Jackpot draw 1645 on Monday 5 February 2024.

The gleeful woman received the winning phone call minutes after the draw had taken place and was completely oblivious to her newfound fortune – leaving her to have the best reaction possible.

“You’re kidding?! Oh my god!” she joyfully cried.

“Oh, you’re kidding! I can’t believe this.

“Oh my god. Thank you so much!

“I’m in the middle of a shopping centre and I have to keep the win quiet.

“I’m about to tell my husband and he will probably have a similar reaction.

“I’ll have to stick the commemorative novelty cheque on the wall to remember it for the rest of my life.

“This is amazing!”

With $200,000 about to land in her bank account, the winning woman shared it would be a ‘tremendous help’ and would allow her and her husband to pay some school fees.

“This will help us a lot! It will go to bills and also pay off some school fees,” she said.

“I’m overwhelmed with emotion. Thank you!”

Her winning entry of two random numbers was purchased online at thelott.com – the official home of Australia’s lotteries.
