Mackay man cleans up with $102,000 mid-week surprise
A Mackay man who was busy doing some household chores has had a welcome distraction, discovering he won more than $100,000 in the latest Lucky Lotteries Super Jackpot draw.
The North Queensland resident won the guaranteed 1st Prize in Lucky Lotteries Super Jackpot draw 10330 drawn Wednesday 6 November 2019 and takes home $100,000.
As well as winning the 1st Prize, the man also won a consolation prize of $2,000, boosting his total bounty to $102,000.
We broke the news to the winner, who had no idea he’d won $102,000.
“Oh wow! That is lovely!” he laughed.
“That is good. No, that is just amazing!
“What a nice surprise for a Wednesday.
“It’s certainly a great win before Christmas.
“I was just doing a few little chores around the house when I saw your call. I didn’t answer because it was from a private number and I never usually answer those calls.
“Then you called again, and I thought it must be important.
“Well I am so glad I answered! This was not the phone call I was expecting today.
“You really have made my day. Thank you!”
When asked how he planned to enjoy his prize, the stoked bloke said while he’d need some time to think, he did have a few ideas.
“Gosh I am not really sure. It certainly will come in handy,” he admitted.
“I am probably going to pay off some bills, go on holiday, probably a cruise, and then the rest I will put in the bank for a rainy day.
“I am definitely going to be celebrating tonight. I think we might have to go out and have some drinks.”
