A Tamworth man is poised to boost his retirement dreams after an unexpected $100,000 windfall in a recent Lucky Lotteries Super Jackpot draw.

The northeast New South Welshman scored the 1st Prize of $100,000 in Lucky Lotteries Super Jackpot draw 10853, drawn Thursday 30 May 2024. 

As well as winning the 1st Prize of $100,000, the chirpy man also won a consolation prize of $1,000 – bolstering his total windfall to $101,000.

We tried calling the winning man straight after the draw on Thursday only to realise his contact details weren’t updated. 

“I’m really excited,” he declared when we finally spoke to him.

“Thank you so much. I’m in shock!

“I found out on Sunday when I visited the newsagency and I had scanned the ticket. I didn’t know what to believe.

“I’m approaching retirement age, and this has come at the most perfect time.

“It will help boost the retirement fund, that’s for sure!”

His winning entry of two random numbers was purchased at Country Capital Newsagency, 289 Peel Street, Tamworth.
