Young Wollongbar tradie kicks off the weekend early with $200,000 win
A young Wollongbar dad is knocking off early and planning to set his family up for the future after receiving a phone call with news he won $200,000.
The hardworking tradie won the guaranteed 1st Prize of $200,000 in Lucky Lotteries Mega Jackpot draw 1448, drawn Friday 30 August 2019.
We contacted the man this morning to break the news, while he was working on site.
“Holy sh*t!” he eventually managed.
“Yeah right. You’re kidding? That is unreal.
“I think I’m going to go home early today!
“I’m incredibly happy.
“My girlfriend always gets up me for buying lottery tickets. I don’t think she’ll believe this!”
When asked how he planned to enjoy his windfall, the new dad said his welcome windfall had arrived at the perfect time in his life.
“We’ve just bought a house and had a baby so this is going to be a massive help to us,” he explained.
“This is going to take a huge chunk off the mortgage. And I’ve been saving really hard for a new car so now I’ll finally be able to buy that.
“This is amazing. Thank you so much!”
The happy man, who wishes to remain anonymous, purchased his winning entry of four random numbers online at thelott.com – Australia’s official lotteries.
