A Central Coast woman is thanking a last-minute decision to pick up a lottery ticket from St Ives for her $100,000 win.

The New South Wales player held the 1st Prize winning entry in Lucky Lotteries Super Jackpot draw 10731, drawn 8 November 2022.

In addition to winning the 1st Prize, her entry also scored a $1,000 consolation prize, boosting her total windfall to $101,000.

“I’m a bit dazed!” the winning woman laughed while her win was confirmed by us.

“It’s lovely! I’ve been playing for years and years and years, but I’ve never won anything like this.

“I was just travelling through St Ives and thought I would pop in and grab a ticket. I didn’t have my player card with me, so I only found out about this win when I checked my ticket just now.

“I’m not quite sure what I’ll do with it just yet. I think I might upgrade my car – it’s done a few kilometres.

“Thank you! What a great surprise to my day!”

Nextra St Ives Village Newsagency manager Karen Scott said she was thrilled their latest big winner had discovered their prize.

“We’ve been celebrating the win by putting posters up and letting our customers know we’ve sold a winning ticket,” she said.

“Hopefully, it’s the start of a winning streak. The last time we sold a big winning entry was about two years ago for Saturday Lotto.

“Congratulations to our winner. I hope this brings you and your family great joy, especially going into the festive season.”
