A Gosford man’s gardening day has blossomed beautifully after he received a call from lottery officials with the news he’d won a lush $100,000 in Lucky Lotteries Super Jackpot.

The Central Coast resident won the guaranteed 1st Prize of $100,000 in Lucky Lotteries Super Jackpot draw 10695, drawn Tuesday 27 September 2022.

This is the second 1st Prize win in Lucky Lotteries Super Jackpot to land in Gosford this week after a Gosford woman also walked away with a $100,000 win on Monday 26 September in draw 10694.

So far in 2022, there have been 26 major Lucky Lotteries wins in the Hunter and Central Coast region, collectively worth more than $2.8 million in prize money.

“Wow, how exciting!” he laughed when we reached out.

“I had no idea I’d won $100,000 – that’s wonderful.

“I was repotting some plants and doing some other gardening, and my hands were wet from the soil. I tried to swipe my phone screen to answer your calls, but I couldn’t!

“I’ve told my wife straight away, and she was pretty excited! I’ll surprise my daughter when she finishes work too.

“I’ve personally never seen the jackpot reach so high for Lucky Lotteries draws, so I decided to give it a go.

“Thank you so much!”

With $100,000 about to boost his bank account, the winning man immediately shared he would book a flight overseas.

“Now that the COVID-19 pandemic has eased, I can look at travelling overseas. I’ve actually been looking at some destinations as of late,” he exclaimed.

“I’ll pay off some bills and help out my daughter!”

His winning entry of five random numbers was purchased online at thelott.com – the official home of Australia’s lotteries.
