Bribie Island grandmother calming down with a cuppa after discovering her $100,000 windfall
A Bribie Island grandmother is calming herself down with a cuppa, after discovering she won $100,000 in the latest Lucky Lotteries Super Jackpot draw.
The winner takes home the guaranteed 1st Prize of $100,000 in Lucky Lotteries Super Jackpot draw 10272, drawn Monday 18 February 2019. The winning entry also won a consolation prize of $1,000, boosting her prize to $101,000.
We had the pleasure of contacting the woman this afternoon to break the exciting news.
“You’re joking aren’t you?” the woman initially questioned.
“I wish you were here to hold me up because I’m just about to faint!
“I’m beside myself. I’m about to cry! This is going to help me so much!
“I really can’t believe you but I am trying to.
“I can’t wait to tell my family.”
The Bribie Island resident revealed she’d been playing Lucky Lotteries regularly for years and was too shocked to think of how she’d spend her windfall.
“I’ve never won anything in my whole life. I’ve never even won a raffle!” she confessed.
“I’m going to help my family that will be my first priority.
“I need to go and make myself a cup of tea to try and calm down!”
The woman, who wishes to remain anonymous, purchased her winning entry of three consecutive numbers at Nextra Bribie Island, Shop 10-11, 239 Goodwin Drive, Bribie Island.
Nextra Bribie Island owner Stephen Kurtz said he was thrilled to have sold a 1st Prize winning entry.
“We sold a Saturday Gold Lotto division one winning entry a little over a year ago, so it’s great to sell another major prize!” he exclaimed.
“It’s really good to see this prize go to a local person who always supports the region, it’s great for our community.
“Congratulations to her, we hope she really enjoys her prize.”
