A man from Moorebank was left shocked yesterday when he received a phone call from NSW Lotteries, after being told he’d won $100,000 from the latest Lucky Lotteries Super Jackpot draw.
He was a regular player and bought his winning ticket from Nextra Moorebank in Moorebank Shopping Centre.
The winner who’d like to remain anonymous was in disbelief when he first heard about the news and had to check his ticket at an outlet for his own confirmation.
But that wasn’t his only win – his five consecutive numbers entry meant he also won a consolation prize, raising his total windfall to $101,000.
He thanked the NSW Lotteries official who brought him the news and said the money would go towards family, particularly, his grandchildren.
“Thanks very much – it feels really good. I’ve waited a long time for a win like this,” he said.
“I will share it with my family, I’ve got some grandchildren to look after so I will spoil them of course.”
Nextra Moorebank shop owner, Abbott Fattal said it wasn’t the first time they’ve had big winnings from their shop.
“We’ve sold so many now and it feels fantastic. Once we had three big wins, including two Lucky Lotteries 1st Prizes, in a month. I just recently asked myself ‘when are we going to get another win?’ and here it is!”
“Congratulations to the winner – we wish them all the best with their windfall.”
The Lucky Lotteries Super Jackpot prize is now $5.05 million for draw 10193, while the Lucky Lotteries Mega Jackpot is now $5.56 million for draw 1070.
