Dapto golf mates heading to Las Vegas after $100,000 win!
A private syndicate of golf mates are planning a boy’s trip to Las Vegas after discovering they won $100,000 in the latest Lucky Lotteries Super Jackpot draw.
The Wollongong syndicate won the guaranteed 1st Prize of $100,000 in Lucky Lotteries Super Jackpot draw 10342, drawn Thursday 2 January 2020.
Confirming their win with us, the syndicate leader revealed they were still trying to come to terms with their win.
“Gosh this is unreal! What a great win,” he laughed.
“This is a golf syndicate, there’s three of us in it. We have been playing for about five years.
“I saw an email from the Lott and then checked my ticket and discovered we won.
“I called up one of my mates and told him and then we decided to drive to our other friends house and break the news to him in person.
“As you can imagine, we are so stoked!
“What an amazing start to 2020.
“We are having some beers now to celebrate. I am sure celebrations will continue into the weekend.”
When asked how the trio planned to enjoy their windfall, the syndicate leader said they’d spent the morning planning how to use it.
“It’s our fiftieth birthdays this year, so we are thinking we might go on a boy’s trip to Vegas to celebrate,” he explained.
“The rest we will put towards our homes and pay some bills.”
The happy winners purchased their winning entry at NewsXpress Dapto, Shop G106, Dapto Mall, Princes Highway and Moombara Street, Dapto.
NewsXpress Dapto owner Dragi Gugucevski said he was thrilled to have made another one of his customers a major prize winner.
“It is very exciting!” he said.
“The guys came in just before and they were so happy. It was great to be able to congratulate them in person.
“We have sold quite a few major prizes in the past and each time we sell one, it’s just as exciting as the last.
“Our customers keep winning! We feel very lucky.
“We sold three major prizes last year. We’ve already sold one this year and it’s only the third of January, so hopefully we sell even more than last year.”
