Wentworth woman adds to small town winning streak after bagging $200,000 Lucky Lotteries win
A Wentworth woman has added to the small New South Wales town’s series of victories after she scored an incredible $200,000 win in yesterday’s Lucky Lotteries Mega Jackpot draw.
The local resident won the guaranteed 1st Prize of $200,000 in Lucky Lotteries Mega Jackpot draw 1625, drawn Wednesday 20 September 2023.
Incredibly, the win occurred just three weeks after 10 Powerball players from the town became overnight multi-millionaires.
When we reached out to the victorious woman, she was completely unaware of her newfound fortune and screamed so loud she woke up her husband.
“Oh my gosh! I’ve won! I’ve won!” she cried.
“Hallelujah! I’ve won $200,000 dollars on a $5 ticket!
“My heart is beating so fast! I’m shaking.
“My screams just woke my husband up. He and the dog are looking at me like I’m crazy. This is incredible.
“This means so much. I’ve been praying for this, and I was just watching a movie about angels!
“Every morning, my husband and I sit outside and talk about what we’d like to do if we won the lotto.
“We’ve always said we would buy a caravan and travel around Australia. Now we can!
“I’ve played every week for the past 20 years, I always put a bit to the side so I can get my $2 and $5 ticket.
“Thank you so much! You have made my day.”
