North St Marys man picks up $100,000 lottery win while shopping
A North St Marys man out shopping yesterday got the surprise of his life when he checked his Lucky Lotteries Super Jackpot ticket and realised he was $100,000 richer.
The Western Sydney resident won the guaranteed 1st Prize of $100,000 in Lucky Lotteries Super Jackpot draw 10519, drawn Tuesday 18 January 2022.
“I’m feeling good! This is a nice surprise,” he explained when we confirmed his win.
“While I was out shopping yesterday, I checked my ticket at the local newsagency. They told me, ‘You might be the 1st Prize winner in Lucky Lotteries Super Jackpot!’. I was confused!
“I rushed home to check the ticket on The Lott website, and that’s when I discovered I had won $100,000! I shouted, ‘You’re kidding!’.
“As soon as I found out, I told my brother and sister. My sister didn’t believe it at first. She said, ‘Is this real?’. They’re over the moon for me!
“I’ve been playing Lucky Lotteries for about 30 years now, so it’s great to see a major lottery win come my way.
“The prize will be a tremendous help! I’ll put it straight into the bank once I receive it.
“You’ve made my day!”
His winning entry of one random number was purchased at Mount Druitt Newsagency, Shop 16, Westfield Shoppingtown, Cnr Carlisle Avenue and Luxford Road, Mount Druitt.
Mount Druitt Newsagency team member Debbie Mcgivern said the win had created immense excitement in recent days.
“All of our customers are thrilled for us! We’re also feeling very happy to have sold a 1st Prize in Lucky Lotteries,” she said.
“It’s been a very long time since we’ve sold a such a big win and we hope this is the start of a winning streak.
“Congratulations to our winner and we wish them all the best!”
