Urunga mother scores $200,000 prize on a whim
A spur-of-the-moment decision to try a new lottery game has landed an Urunga mother a $200,000 prize in today’s Lucky Lotteries Mega Jackpot draw.
The Mid North Coast player won the 1st Prize of $200,000 in Lucky Lotteries Mega Jackpot draw 1544, drawn Tuesday 14 September 2021.
Straight after the draw, we called the winner, who admitted the thrilling news came as a surprise.
“Wow! That’s amazing,” the euphoric woman laughed.
“I decided to randomly purchase a ticket when my mother-in-law asked what the Lucky Lotteries game was. I’ve never played an entry before.
“I’m going to tell my partner who will not believe me! It might take a while to process myself. It’s hard to digest the news.
“It’s been quite challenging being a stay-at-home mum. The prize will help me significantly. I never thought I’d ever win a lottery prize.
“Thank you so much.”
When asked how the prize money would make a difference, the winning woman explained she had been eyeing off a new set of wheels.
“I’ve been wanting to purchase a new car for a while now. Hopefully a larger one!” she revealed.
“Having a larger car with more space will be a lot easier for my family.”
The New South Wales woman, who wishes to remain anonymous, purchased her winning entry of four random numbers online at thelott.com – Australia’s official lotteries.
