A Grafton woman admits 2020 has been a terrible year, but that’s all changed after winning $100,000 in the latest Lucky Lotteries Super Jackpot draw.
The New South Wales player won the 1st Prize of $100,000 in Lucky Lotteries Super Jackpot draw 10414, drawn Monday 28 September 2020.
As well as winning the 1st Prize, the Northern Rivers woman also won a consolation prize of $1,000, boosting her total win to $101,000.
Sharing her excitement with an official from The Lott, the delighted winner admitted she could “barely win an argument” so she was shocked to score $100,000.
“Is this a joke or a prank?” she questioned.
“You’ve got me all flustered!
“I am shaking! Oh my god! Oh my god!
“I can’t believe it, this is insane!
“Oh my gosh. I can’t stop crying!
“I have had such a terrible year, 2020 has really been sh*t.
“This has certainly made it so, so much better!
“God I’ve never won anything. I can barely win an argument.
“This is incredible, thank you so much.
“As soon as I get off the phone to you, I am going to call my best friend and my daughter.”
When asked how she planned to enjoy her prize, the thrilled winner admitted she knew exactly what she was going to do.
“I really want to get myself a new car and I’d love to help my family,” she shared.
“When we can travel again, I’d like to do an overseas trip.”
The regular player, who wishes to remain anonymous, purchased her winning entry of two consecutive numbers at Grafton Mall News, Shop 11 Grafton Mall, Cnr King And Pound Street, Grafton.
Grafton Mall News owners Allan and Joan Worland said they couldn’t be happier for the winner.
“We are thrilled,” Allan said.
“She told us she’d won the major prize and we couldn’t be happier for her.
“She’s a very deserving winner.”
“We’ve been sharing the news with all of our customers and everyone is happy for our winner,” Joan added.
“We haven’t had a major prize win in a little while, so we hope this is the beginning of a winning streak.”
The Lucky Lotteries Mega Jackpot prize is now $1.72 million for draw 1502 while the Lucky Lotteries Super Jackpot is now $4.53 million for draw 10415.
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.
