$100,000 lottery win leaves Toowoomba man needing an urgent lie-down
A Toowoomba man has confessed his heart was left racing a million miles an hour from the revelation of his $100,000 win in the latest Lucky Lotteries Super Jackpot draw.
The Darling Downs resident won the guaranteed 1st Prize of $100,000 in Lucky Lotteries Super Jackpot draw 10789, drawn Monday 14 August 2023.
As well as winning the 1st Prize of $100,000, the jubilant player also won a $1,000 consolation prize.
The retiree shared he was working in the backyard when we called to reveal the life-enhancing news.
“Oh, goodness me!” he cheered.
“Wow, oh wow. I’m flabbergasted!
“I’m outside my house completing some house chores and I noticed I had a missed call from an unknown number. I let the first phone call ring out and I was close to not answering this one.
“I’m so glad I decided to answer.
“This is the most I’ve ever won. My biggest prize was $40!
“I think I might have to sit down.
“My heart is beating outside of my chest.”
The Queenslander shared the lottery loot would allow him to boost his superannuation.
“I’ll look forward to some very ordinary plans, nothing exciting. But it will definitely be a huge boost,” he shared.
“This will make a great contribution to our super.
“I think I’ll have to go and have a nice lay down and enjoy a celebratory dinner later!”
His winning entry of two consecutive numbers was purchased at Campbells News & Casket, 244 Ruthven Street, Toowoomba.
