“It’s made my life!”: Lucky Lotteries $100,000 win brightens North Narrabeen woman’s “bad day”
More than a week after the draw, a North Narrabeen mum has today come forward to claim her $100,000 Lucky Lotteries win, revealing it had brightened her “bad day”.
The Northern Sydney winner won the 1st Prize of $100,000 in Lucky Lotteries Super Jackpot draw 10483, drawn Monday 16 August 2021.
As well as winning the 1st Prize, the winner also scored a consolation prize of $2,000, boosting her total windfall to $102,000.
The ticket was unregistered, so we had no way of contacting the winner to break the news and had to wait for her to come forward to claim her prize.
Last week, the woman and her husband entered their local outlet to finallybcheck their Lucky Lotteries Super Jackpot ticket and left $102,000 richer.
“It’s made my life! I couldn’t believe it,” she revealed when speaking to us today.
“I received the lottery ticket for my birthday from my husband; it’s a tradition for him to gift me them to me every year. I don’t usually purchase them myself.
“You wouldn’t believe it! He was so close to cancelling the Lucky Lotteries Super Jackpot ticket because he forgot to register it. Thank goodness he didn’t cancel it!
“I was having such a sh**** day and my husband said, ‘the Lucky Lotteries Super Jackpot draw should be done now, let’s check our tickets’.
“We walked to the computer to check the results, and it came up with ‘you have won a major lottery prize’. I was dumbfounded, I yelled, ‘what! I have won?’.
“We then went to the newsagency to confirm the prize. I walked slowly to the counter, and the owner told me that I won the 1st Prize!
“I’m still trying to process it all.
“It’s such a big sigh of relief. I can pay off some debt, including the house mortgage. Just having some additional funds is even a big help.
“As soon as we come out of lockdown, I plan to celebrate the windfall with my loved ones. I have told them the exciting news, and they’re so happy for me.”
The happy winner, who wishes to remain anonymous, purchased her winning entry of five consecutive numbers at Elanora Heights Newsagency, 63B Kalang Road, Elanora Heights.
Elanora Heights Newsagency owner Karla Rothpletz-Tatt said the whole team were excited for the winner and couldn’t be happier they sold the winning ticket.
“We’re absolutely thrilled! The winner knew they had won and came into our newsagency to confirm the win,” she exclaimed.
“Her husband came up to the counter and gave us a wink and a smile. We processed the ticket and kept it on the down-low. They were very excited.
“We’re over the moon that the customer is a local and a regular. All our customers are asking us about the win. They’re very curious.
“On behalf of the team at Elanora Heights, we would like to congratulate them and wish them all the best.”
