The New South Wales resident won the guaranteed 1st Prize of $200,000 in Lucky Lotteries Mega Jackpot draw 1190, drawn Wednesday 2 January 2019.

The unsuspecting winner revealed he was blown away when he discovered his good fortune.

“I checked the Lott app and saw I’d won something. I thought maybe it was a free ticket,” he explained.

“But when I looked closer, the app told me I’d won the guaranteed 1st Prize.

“I couldn’t believe it. I had to get my wife to double check!”

The man revealed he had been playing Lucky Lotteries regularly during the last few months, watching the Mega Jackpot prize soar.
