A Blayney man has knocked off from night shift to discover he’s had a $200,000 pay day.

The New South Wales player won the guaranteed 1st Prize of $200,000 in Lucky Lotteries Mega Jackpot draw 1350, drawn Thursday 13 June 2019.

Confirming his win with a NSW Lotteries official this afternoon, the man explained he had an inkling he’d won big.

“Very good, isn’t it!” he laughed.

“Thank you so much!

“This morning, just after I finished night shift, I checked Facebook to see a friend had posted that someone in Blayney had won $200,000.

“That’s when I remembered I had a ticket in yesterday’s draw.

“I came into the newsagency hoping it was me and it was!”

The country NSW resident said the prize meant he’d be able to finally own his home.

“I’ll probably pay off my house which will be a great feeling!” he said.

“Maybe I’ll celebrate with a nice bottle of scotch over the weekend!”

The man, who wishes to remain anonymous, purchased his winning entry at Blayney Newsagency, 130 Adelaide Street, Blayney.

Blayney Newsagency owner Sharryn Kearney said it was such a thrill to sell a 1st Prize winning entry.

“It’s so exciting to see this prize go to a local out here in Blayney!” she exclaimed.

“We’ve had a few big prizes land out here before but we haven’t sold a major prize winning entry in a long time so this is very exciting!

“It’s great for locals to see that lottery wins do land in small country towns.

“We’re hoping lightning strikes twice!”

The Lucky Lotteries Mega Jackpot prize is now $73.48 million for draw 1353 while the Lucky Lotteries Super Jackpot is now $1.67 million for draw 10294.
