A Melbourne man is attributing his good fortune to an interesting encounter with a bird after discovering he won $100,000 in a recent Lucky Lotteries Super Jackpot draw.

The Melbournian won the guaranteed 1st Prize in Lucky Lotteries Super Jackpot draw 10749, drawn on Monday 30 January 2023 and took home $100,000.

In addition to winning the 1st Prize, the winning man also scored a consolation prize of $2,000 boosting his total win to $102,000.

“What an incredible feeling!” the winning man cheered when we confirmed the winning news.

“I didn’t discover the win until midnight last night. I noticed someone tried to call but I don’t answer numbers that I don’t know, in-fear that it’s scammers calling.

“When I saw the email, I thought I was dreaming. It took us a little while to wake up, but it wasn’t a dream.

“I’ve never won anything more than a few dollars here and there.

“I’ve been playing Lucky Lotteries Super Jackpot for a while now! It’s certainly paid off.

“Before I found out, my family and I were out and about, and a bird pooed on me!

“One of my adult children turned to me and told me that I’d come into some good fortune.

“Looks like they were right!

“It’s come at the perfect time!

“I don’t know exactly what I’ll do with it, but I will be sharing this win with my family.

“This has been a breath of fresh air, we will now have all the freedom to do things we haven’t been able to do before. 

“It’s really going to make a difference.

“Thank you so much.”
