A generous Flinders Park retiree is first in line for ‘best friend of the year’ after declaring he would use most of his $100,000 win in a recent Lucky Lotteries Super Jackpot draw to help his mates.

The Adelaide resident scored the 1st Prize in Lucky Lotteries Super Jackpot draw 10851, drawn Friday 17 May 2024.

It was the gift that kept on giving for the South Australian man because as well as winning the 1st Prize, he won a consolation prize of $1,000, bolstering his total windfall to $101,000.

The winning man missed a couple of calls from us late last week but shortly returned the call to discover the revelation he was $101,000 richer.

“That’s such good news!” he cheered.

“Oh wow! Thank you so much. It’s definitely the most I’ve ever won.

“I wasn’t having the greatest week with my health, but this has really made my day.

“I’ve been lying in bed recovering and I decided to check my Lucky Lotteries ticket. I couldn’t believe it.

“I had a couple of mates; they need some help with things that have broken down. One of them needs a new battery for his lawn mower.

“They’re great friends and they look after me too.

“Thank you so much. I’m a happy man!”

His winning entry of two random numbers was purchased via The Lott app – the official home of Australia’s lotteries.
