A Bathurst man had 100,000 reasons to start his weekend early on Friday after his workday was interrupted by the revelation he’d won the 1st Prize in the latest Lucky Lotteries Super Jackpot draw.
The New South Wales man held the 1st Prize winning entry in Lucky Lotteries Super Jackpot draw 10852 on Friday 24 May 2024. In addition to his $100,000 prize, he also scored a consolation prize of $1,000.
‘F***ing ripper!” the man exclaimed.
“I’ve been waiting for this call for a long time! I’ve been buying lottery tickets for 30 years.
“Every week on my way to work, I buy a lottery ticket.
“I won $100 once – that’s the most I’ve won.
“I appreciate your phone call. You bring great news!
“I can’t wait to knock off a large chunk from my mortgage. It won’t wipe it out completely, but it will go a long way.
“I’m just at work now but I’ll be having a few beers this afternoon to celebrate!”
The man’s winning entry of five consecutive numbers was purchased at Keppel Street Newsagency, 53 Keppel Street, Bathurst.
Keppel Street Newsagency owner Urvish Damwala said he was thrilled to see another win land in Bathurst.
“We’re really happy for our winner. He was very excited when he came into the store and said after 30 years he’d finally cracked it!” he said.
“We took over the business in 2023, and since then, we’ve sold three major syndicate winning entries and this Lucky Lotteries Super Jackpot entry.
“We’re hoping for more wins from here in the near future!”
