Budgewoi man’s retirement plans upgraded with $100,000 lottery win
A Budgewoi man is ready to become a grey nomad after taking home $100,000 in a recent Lucky Lotteries Super Jackpot draw.
The New South Wales resident admitted he was having a swing of golf when we first tried to reveal his life-enhancing news.
“That’s amazing! When you rang me three times on Friday, I was playing golf. I thought it was my wife because she’s the only person who could bother me that much!” he laughed.
“I went to look at my phone and I thought you were a telemarketer, so I just ignored it!
“It wasn’t until Sunday morning that I looked at my emails, and thought, ‘Oh! That’s a new one’.
“That’s when I read your email about a major lottery prize – I checked my ticket immediately.
“I said, ‘Oh my god! No way!’. I was a bit stunned. I won $800 a couple of years ago, but this is the most I’ve ever won.
“I might just become a grey nomad and go on a big holiday. I’m retired and this gives me a big boost.
“It just makes our lives so much easier!”
