A Bathurst man has been overwhelmed with emotion today after discovering his Lucky Lotteries Super Jackpot ticket purchased on a whim has landed him a life-enhancing $100,000 boost.

The Central Tablelands resident scored the 1st Prize of $100,000 in today’s Lucky Lotteries Super Jackpot draw 10844, drawn Tuesday 2 April 2024.

The New South Welshman was going about his Tuesday when he noticed he had a couple of missed calls and emails encouraging him to check his lottery tickets.

“I’m feeling pretty good now!” he laughed.

“Thank you so much.

“I’ve been playing lotto for quite some time, but I have never played this random jackpot before. I decided to give it a go on a whim – now it’s landed me $100,000!

“I’ve only ever really won $400 before, so this is overwhelming.

“I immediately thought I was being scammed when I noticed I had a couple of missed calls, text messages and emails, but then I looked into it and I thought, hang on!”

While some major lottery winners envision a lavish holiday or a brand-new car, the seasonal player admitted this prize would instead go towards his long-held dream of owning a home.

“I’m not too sure what I’ll spend the prize on right now, but I’ve always thought if I was to win the lottery – depending on how much – I’d want to buy a house,” he said.

“This would be a great help towards a house if that’s the route I decide to go down.”

His winning entry of 11 random numbers was purchased via The Lott app – the official home of Australia’s lotteries.
