A Leichhardt man has had a hump day he will never forget, discovering he’s now $200,000 richer.

The Sydney man’s entry won the guaranteed 1st Prize of $200,000 in Lucky Lotteries Mega Jackpot draw 1161, drawn Wednesday 21 November 2018.

When we spoke with the winner he explained he’d checked his entry online but thought he was mistaken when he read he had scored a big prize.

“I don’t normally check my tickets but for some reason, I checked this one,” he said.

“I thought it must have been a mistake so I checked six times.”

When asked how he might use his Wednesday winnings, the happy man shared the prize would help him pay some bills and have a very festive Christmas.

“It’s tremendous! Just wonderful.”

“It’s not something you expect, is it? You expect to win $10 or $14 but when that big number came up, it flattened me…but not for long,” he revealed.

“Hopefully it’s not the last time I speak to you about a big win.”

The man, who wishes to remain anonymous, purchased his winning entry of 10 random numbers at Nextra Norton Plaza, Shop 24, Norton Plaza, 55 Norton Street, Leichhardt.
