From horoscopes to buying new teeth: Our quirkiest Lucky Lotteries winners
There’s no game quite like Lucky Lotteries.
It’s just like a raffle, which means every number is unique. Speaking of unique, so too are Lucky Lotteries’ one-of-a-kind winners.
As the Lucky Lotteries Mega Jackpot continues to climb to new heights, we’ve taken the opportunity to look back at most memorable winners. Whether it was how they came to secure that prize-winning entry, or a peculiar purchase they made with their windfall, these Lucky winners sure have had some cracking stories to tell!
Picking up a Lucky Lotteries ticket along with the paper on the weekend, or ducking into your local outlet before doing the weekly grocery shop is how a lot of players come to secure their tickets.
However, that’s not always the case. Some winners have told us amazing stories about how they came to hold their winning ticket.
One New South Wales woman confessed she had been dreaming of a big win during the week leading up to her 1st Prize windfall. That funny feeling she had in her stomach proved to be right!
Another 1st Prize winner made us want to start paying closer attention to our star signs when she told us the reason she purchased her winning ticket was because her horoscope told her luck was coming her way.
“I don’t play Lucky Lotteries that often, and I only bought this ticket because of the name of the game. It was my horoscope that told me luck was coming my way, the day I got the ticket.” – SA winner
You might want to start decluttering around the house and cleaning out your car after reading where these winners retrieved their prize winning tickets from!
A Sawtell man professed cleaning his car had never been so lucrative after he discovered an old Lucky Lotteries Mega Jackpot ticket has been sitting in his vehicle for more than six months, and it just so happened to land him the 1st Prize.
“I’m glad I checked the ticket and didn’t just throw it out. I can’t believe I’ve won that much.” – NSW winner
One Park Holme woman started to throw out her winning ticket, but thought she might double check it just to be safe.
She told us she nearly cried after discovering the half-torn ticket destined for the bin was in fact worth $100,000.
What would be at the top of your wish list if you suddenly became $100,000 or $200,000 richer? Forget the mortgage or a new car, these winners decided to use their windfall on very specific items.
A Casino pensioner planned to cook up a storm and shout herself a new stove after winning $200,000 in a Lucky Lotteries Mega Jackpot draw.
“I can finally have a real stove! I’ll probably get a whole new kitchen!” – NSW winner
Instead of spoiling herself, a teacher from Merrylands declared her first priority was her babies - her cats, as they deserved to be spoilt!
New curtains were the first thing a couple from Dapto wanted to shop for when they discovered their Lucky Lotteries Super Jackpot 1st Prize win.
