“Honey, we’ve won $100,000!”: Wallsend couple discover Lucky Lotteries win
A Wallsend woman admitted she had to pick her husband up off the floor, when he fell over in shock after discovering they won $100,000 in the latest Lucky Lotteries Super Jackpot draw.
The Newcastle locals won the guaranteed 1st Prize of $100,000 in Lucky Lotteries Super Jackpot draw 10345, drawn Monday 20 January 2020.
We called the winning couple this morning, who had no idea they had won $100,000.
“Is this a joke?” the winning woman questioned.
“Are you really from NSW Lotteries?
“You’re kidding me, $100,000?
“God bless you!
“Honey, we’ve won $100,000,” she screamed happily to her husband.
“Hang on, my husband just fell over! I have to pick him up off the floor!
“I am a stunned mullet!
“We’ve never even won a chook raffle. I just can’t believe this!”
When asked how the pair planned to enjoy their windfall, the overjoyed woman said they would finally renovate their home.
“We’ve struggled our whole life, so this will make a huge difference to our life,” she explained.
“We are going to use our prize to renovate our bathroom. We’ve been wanting to do that for ages!”
The winning entry of five random numbers was purchased at Wallsend Newsagency, 126 Nelson Street, Wallsend.
Wallsend Newsagency owner Brett James said he was thrilled to have sold a major prize winning entry to one of his customers.
“It’s absolutely wonderful,” he said.
“It’s great to help make a difference to someone’s life. It’s definitely the most rewarding thing about working in lotteries, to see the impact you can make on someone’s life. That feeling really is indescribable.
“We are thrilled for the winners and we wish them the best with their prize.
“We hope to deliver many more major wins to our customers. We have sold quite a few in the past and can’t wait to sell more.”
