New curtains and a new car for Dapto’s Lucky Lotteries winning couple
A couple from Dapto are ready to shop for new curtains, a new car and an overseas holiday after this morning discovering they are now $100,000 richer from the latest Lucky Lotteries Super Jackpot draw.
The happy couple held the 1st Prize winning entry in Lucky Lotteries Super Jackpot draw 10242, drawn Monday 20 August 2018.
In addition to winning the 1st Prize, their entry of two consecutive numbers also scored a $1,000 consolation prize.
When a NSW Lotteries official first made contact with the couple yesterday afternoon to deliver the winning news, the couple were highly sceptical.
But when they checked the draw results online this morning, they realised they were $100,000 richer.
“We just didn’t believe it. You can never be too careful with these types of calls,” the winning man exclaimed.
“Even my wife said this morning ‘Did that really happen? Did we really win?’. It’s just fantastic.”
As they prepare for their bank account to balloon, the couple shared there are a few ways they’d like to use their prize.
“My wife would like to buy some new curtains, and I’d like to get a new car. She can get the curtains if I can get the car,” he laughed.
“We’d also like to plan an overseas trip!”
The couple, who wishes to remain anonymous, purchased their winning entry of two consecutive numbers from Dapto Newsagency, 17 Bong Bong Road, Dapto.
Dapto Newsagency staff member Victoria Merritt said the outlet was thrilled to have sold a 1st Prize winning entry.
“It’s great news! We’ve been telling our customers and word has been spreading so we’ve had a lot of people coming in to get an entry into the next draw,” she said.
“We can’t wait to sell another winning entry!”
The Lucky Lotteries Mega Jackpot prize is now $17.56 million for draw 1120 while the Lucky Lotteries Super Jackpot is now $1.54
million for draw 10243.
