“Fair dinkum!”: Ulladulla man in disbelief over $100,000 win
A retired man from Ulladulla has had a hard time believing he’s won $100,000 in the latest Lucky Lotteries Super Jackpot draw.
The New South Wales resident won the guaranteed 1st Prize of $100,000 in Lucky Lotteries Super Jackpot draw 10293, drawn Monday 10 June 2019.
This morning we contacted the man, who had been completely oblivious to his windfall.
“Oh wow!” he laughed.
“Are you fair dinkum though? One hundred thousand dollars?
“I don’t think I believe you!
“I’ve never won a thing in my life! Except my wife of course.
“Fair dinkum! I’ve been playing for I don’t know how long, 40 or 50 years and I never thought I’d receive a call like this!”
The winner revealed he’d need some time to think of exactly how he’d use his prize.
“I’ll have to let the news sink in but I reckon I’ll be able to enjoy this throughout our retirement,” he said.
“And I’ve got plenty of kids I can help!”
The man, who wishes to remain anonymous, purchased his winning entry of one random number at Mollymook Pharmacy and Newsagency, Shop 5, 85 Tallwood Avenue, Mollymook.
Mollymook Pharmacy and Newsagency owner Nigel Todd said he was thrilled the outlet had sold its first major prize winning entry.
“We’ve had plenty of smaller wins here over the years but this is the first time one of our customer has won a Lucky Lotteries 1st Prize so we’re very excited!” he exclaimed.
“We hope this is the beginning of many more.
“Congratulations to the winner! I hope he spends his winnings wisely or unwisely if he wishes!”
