A young Gold Coast man is planning to buy his first home and book his first overseas holiday after winning $200,000 in yesterday’s Lucky Lotteries Mega Jackpot draw.

The Queenslander won the guaranteed 1st Prize of $200,000 in Lucky Lotteries Mega Jackpot draw 1303, drawn Wednesday 8 May 2019. 

Confirming the news with us this morning, the winner explained how he discovered his good fortune after checking his ticket online.

“Oh wow! That’s amazing!” he laughed.

“I’m so excited and so happy!

“I checked my ticket online and saw I had won $200,000 but I thought I was seeing things. 

“I didn’t think it was real, I thought it had to be a mistake. 

“I showed my boss and he thought I was pulling his leg!

“I had to leave work because I couldn’t concentrate!”

The stoked winner told us he’d only been playing Lucky Lotteries for a few months but always had an inkling he’d win big. 

“I always thought I’d win a huge prize but I never thought it would be this soon!” he laughed. 

“I always read the stories about winners and now I am one! 

“I was so shocked but I have always felt very lucky!

“I’ll definitely be taking a couple of weeks off to celebrate. 

“I’ll probably surprise my girlfriend with a holiday to Bali. I’ve never been overseas so I’d love to do that. 

“I’m going to put a deposit down on my first home. I’ve never owned my own home so I can’t wait to do that.

“But I’m still in disbelief.  This will really help me get ahead!”

The happy man, who wishes to remain anonymous, purchased his entry of four random numbers online at thelott.com – Australia’s official lotteries.
