Forget manic Monday; one Maclean player could be spending their day relaxing – if only they’d check their Lucky Lotteries ticket and discover they won the $100,000 1st Prize in today’s draw.
The elusive New South Wales player won the 1st Prize of $100,000 in Lucky Lotteries Super Jackpot draw 10399, drawn Monday 10 August 2020.
The ticket is unregistered, so officials from the Lott have no way of contacting the winner to break the news and must wait for them to come forward to claim their prize.
The winning entry was purchased at Maclean Newsagency, 227 River Street, Maclean.
Maclean Newsagency manager Jeremiah Fear said he was eagerly waiting for the winner to check their ticket and discover they scored a $100,000 prize.
“It’s great news,” he said.
“Hopefully the winner comes in soon to check their ticket and we can delight them with the news.
“We can only imagine all of the exciting things they will do with their prize, once they realise they’ve won.
“It’s certainly added a buzz to the store! Everyone’s checking their tickets, hoping it is them.
“We hope we have some more major wins soon!”
The Lott spokesperson Ally Ramsamy said the hunt had began for the mystery winner.

About Lucky Lotteries
Lucky Lotteries has two raffle-style jackpotting games: Lucky Lotteries Super Jackpot and Lucky Lotteries Mega Jackpot.
Each game has two draws – one that determines the winning numbers and one that determines the jackpot number. If the jackpot number matches one of the winning numbers, then the jackpot prize is won. If the jackpot number does not match one of the winning numbers, the jackpot prize will climb for the next draw.
Both Lucky Lotteries Super Jackpot and Lucky Lotteries Mega Jackpot have thousands of other guaranteed prizes in every draw, including a 1st Prize of $100,000 and $200,000 respectively.
As they’re raffle-style games, there is a set number of tickets in each draw and each ticket number is unique so there is no sharing of prizes.
Tickets can be purchased at any licenced lottery outlet, online from thelott.com or via the Lott mobile app.
