Lucky Lotteries win sends Bondi man to ‘limbo’
A Bondi man is packing his bags and heading to Europe after today receiving the news he won the guaranteed 1st Prize of $200,000 in yesterday’s Lucky Lotteries Mega Jackpot draw.
The regular Lucky Lotteries player won $200,000 in Lucky Lotteries Mega Jackpot draw 1199, drawn Wednesday 16 January 2019.
When we contacted the winner this morning to break the exciting news, the man was initially lost for words.
“Oh my god. Are you serious?” he eventually asked.
“Oh god, I can’t believe this. I’m shaking!
“Oh mate, I really cannot believe it!
“I’ve just got goosebumps all over my body.
“I’m in limbo. I don’t know that to say, I’m absolutely gobsmacked!”
The New South Wales winner revealed he has been playing Lucky Lotteries regularly for months, watching the jackpot rise to new heights.
When asked how he planned to spend his unexpected windfall, the man said he had never thought about what he would do with a spare $200,000.
“I can’t really think, 1st Prize, $200,000, that’s unbelievable,” he laughed.
“A holiday will definitely be on the agenda.
“It’s always been my dream to do a river cruise throughout Europe.
“My heart is jumping like crazy. I really can’t even speak properly.
“What a shock this is!”
The winner, who wishes to remain anonymous, purchased his winning entry of two random numbers online at thelott.com – Australia’s official lotteries.
