“I can’t even begin to describe this feeling!”: Collingwood man clocks off early with $100,000 Lucky Lotteries win
A Collingwood man didn’t think twice about clocking off early to celebrate his $100,000 win in today’s Lucky Lotteries Super Jackpot draw, travelling straight into town to have a celebratory drink.
The Melburnian won the guaranteed 1st Prize of $100,000 in Lucky Lotteries Super Jackpot draw 10636, drawn Monday 8 August 2022.
When an official from The Lott confirmed the windfall with the high-spirited man, he was already honouring the winning news with a celebratory drink.
“It’s amazing! I can’t believe it,” he laughed.
“I missed a couple of calls while I was working, and I didn’t think much of it.
“While I was on a break, I’d opened my emails and noticed there was an email from The Lott asking me to call them back. My first thought was ‘Oh s***!’
“I opened The Lott app and saw my entry had won $100,000! I can’t even begin to describe this feeling. It’s been a wave of emotions.
“I’ve always wondered what happens when people win the lottery and how do the scenarios play out? Now I know!
“I’ve already told my wife, and she’s meeting me to celebrate over a nice dinner and a couple of drinks!
“We’re absolutely stoked.”
His winning entry of six consecutive numbers was purchased online at thelott.com – the official home of Australia’s lotteries.
