A Gold Coast man has admitted he was glad he was home alone when he discovered he won $100,000 in yesterday’s Lucky Lotteries Super Jackpot draw so he could excitedly jump up and down without fear of judgment.
The Queensland player scored the guaranteed 1st Prize of $100,000 in Lucky Lotteries Super Jackpot draw 10381, drawn Monday 25 May 2020.
This afternoon an official from the Lott called the man, who relayed the moment he discovered he won $100,000.
“I was just flicking through my emails and saw one from the Lott,” he explained.
“I thought I’d already checked my tickets but logged into my account again to double check.
“I had completely forgotten I’d bought a Lucky Lotteries ticket.
“I got a big surprise when I saw! I was jumping up and down, lucky I was home alone.
“I just couldn’t believe it!
“I called my wife straight away and told her. She said ‘nah, bull***t!’. I had to send her a screenshot to prove it!
When asked how he planned to enjoy his windfall, the overjoyed winner admitted he already knew exactly what he wanted to do.
“It couldn’t have come at a better time,” he said.
“We are going to use it to go on a holiday here in Queensland and then we will pay off some bills.
“It will make things comfortable, a little easier.
“We are going to go out to dinner tonight as well to celebrate!”
The thrilled man, who wishes to remain anonymous, purchased his winning entry of three random numbers online at thelott.com – Australia’s official lotteries.
The Lucky Lotteries Mega Jackpot prize is now $3.16 million for draw 1486 while the Lucky Lotteries Super Jackpot is now $6.74 million for draw 10383.
