A Wollongong woman has brought forward her retirement and is eagerly eyeing overseas travel after winning $100,000 in a recent Lucky Lotteries draw.

The Illawarra resident held the 1st Prize winning entry in Lucky Lotteries Super Jackpot draw 10845 on Monday 8 April 2024.

“It’s just the best feeling ever,” the winning woman declared.

“For years, I’ve been buying one number at a time into consecutive draws. I’ve won little bits and pieces, but this is the first substantial one.

“It’s a bit hit and miss when I check my tickets – very sporadic.

“I thought, ‘I’ve got some tickets in my purse’, so I decided to check them.

“I’d been carrying around one worth $100,000 for a couple of weeks unbeknownst to me!

“When they told me it was the big one, I was just in disbelief.

“It will bring forward retirement by about a year. That’s a very nice prospect to look forward to.

“It also means I can have a nice trip overseas to visit family.

“It just makes things easier.”

The woman’s winning entry of one random number was purchased at Gwynneville Post, Lotteries & Art Hub, Shop 3, 186 Gipps Road, Gwynneville.
