A Melbourne man has had an unforgettable start to his holiday, receiving news he won $200,000 just before he was about to board his international flight.

The Victorian player won the guaranteed 1st Prize of $200,000 in Lucky Lotteries Mega Jackpot draw 1312, drawn Wednesday 15 May 2019.

A Tatts official finally got in contact with the winner this morning to break the news, after more than a week of failed attempts.

“Wow! That’s awesome!” he exclaimed.

“Thank you very much!

“I had missed a few calls but I never thought it could be this news!

“I’m actually at the airport about to head overseas so it’s great timing!

“It’s very nice to hear I’ve won $200,000 before I go jet setting!”

The Victorian player revealed the Lucky Lotteries Mega Jackpot prize had caught his eye and he’d been playing regularly.

“Every time I go on the website the jackpot prize has crept even higher!” he laughed.

“I will definitely save my prize and put it away for now.

“And now it’s paid for this holiday I’m about to embark on.”

The thrilled winner, who wishes to remain anonymous, purchased his winning entry online at thelott.com – Australia’s official lotteries.

The Lucky Lotteries Mega Jackpot prize is now $66.52 million for draw 1324 while the Lucky Lotteries Super Jackpot is now $1.15 million for draw 10290.
