A Tuncurry man is hoping for a brighter finish to the year after discovering he scored an “overwhelming” $100,000 bounty in one of this week’s Lucky Lotteries draws. 

The Mid North Coast resident won the 1st Prize of $100,000 in Lucky Lotteries Super Jackpot draw 10392, drawn Tuesday 7 July 2020. 

Confirming his win with us this afternoon, the man explained he’d only just made the exciting discovery.

When asked how he planned to enjoy his windfall, the man explained his prize had no doubt turned 2020 around. 

“It’s been a rough year for a lot of people, and I am really glad that I am now in a position to help some family out who need it,” he said.
