A Mordialloc man almost missed out on his $100,000 Lucky Lotteries win after he continually declined calls from The Lott because he was in a work meeting and assumed it was scammers dialling.

The Victorian won the guaranteed 1st Prize in Lucky Lotteries Super Jackpot draw 10563, drawn 3 May 2022. He takes home $100,000.

We finally reached the hardworking man this afternoon, after he’d  just discovered he won the 1st Prize.

“I was in a work meeting, and my phone kept ringing, but I couldn’t answer it,” he explained.

“At first, I assumed you were a nuisance caller, and I was going to block your number.

“But I looked up your phone number online, and it said you were from The Lott.

“Then I received an email from you directly encouraging me to check my Lucky Lotteries tickets, so I logged into my online The Lott account, and I saw the win.

“I wasn’t entirely convinced at first. It was very overwhelming!

“Once it started to sink in, I did a little happy dance and everything.

“It’s excellent news. I haven’t told my wife yet. I think I’ll surprise her this weekend with the winning news. I might even book somewhere nice for us to stay to enjoy ourselves.

“We’ve wanted to build ourselves a house, but we’ve been wondering how we could afford it.

“But now this means we can build a home – it’ll be our dream home, with walls and a roof and everything!”

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