Yarrawonga Chronicle - - Front Page -

A Yar­ra­wonga man is look­ing for­ward to stuff­ing his fam­ily’s Christ­mas stock­ings with plenty of gifts this year af­ter hear­ing the news he is now over $200,000 richer from last Thurs­day’s Lucky Lot­ter­ies Mega Jack­pot draw.

The thrilled win­ner won the guar­an­teed first prize in Lucky Lot­ter­ies Mega Jack­pot draw 1150, drawn on Thurs­day, Novem­ber 1.

As well as win­ning the guar­an­teed first prize of $200,000, the Yar­ra­wonga lo­cal’s 4-con­sec­u­tive num­ber en­try also won an ad­di­tional $1,030 in con­so­la­tion prizes, bol­ster­ing his to­tal prize to $201,030.

When a Tatts of­fi­cial called to con­firm his win, the lo­cal man was speech­less at the news of his prize.

“Two hun­dred and one thou­sand dol­lars!” he ex­claimed af­ter a mo­ment of stunned si­lence.

“Un­be­liev­able! Just won­der­ful! It will make for a lovely Christ­mas won’t it? It’s not too far away.”

The win­ner also re­vealed he wouldn’t just be stuff­ing stock­ings with his Lucky Lot­ter­ies wind­fall, but he had other plans too.

“There will be a few things in there for my­self too,” he re­vealed.

“It will be good to re­tire a few of my bills and buy a few other things.”

The reg­u­lar player also ad­mit­ted this wasn’t the first ma­jor prize he had won.

“I’ve ac­tu­ally won a large prize be­fore,” he re­vealed.

“Many years ago a syn­di­cate I was in won Satur­day TattsLotto so we were for­tu­nate enough to win a big prize then.

“Since then I’ve just been play­ing reg­u­larly and I’ll still keep play­ing my four se­quen­tial num­bers as the jack­pot is now $25 mil­lion! “Maybe it will be a hat-trick!”

The gen­er­ous win­ner, who wishes to re­main anony­mous, pur­chased his win­ning en­try of 4-con­sec­u­tive num­bers on­line at th­elott.com – Aus­tralia’s of­fi­cial lot­ter­ies.

The Lucky Lot­ter­ies Mega Jack­pot prize has now jack­pot­ted to $25.24 mil­lion for the next draw 1152, and the Lucky Lot­ter­ies Su­per Jack­pot prize con­tin­ues to climb of­fer­ing $1.15 mil­lion in the next draw 10255. AD­VER­TISE­MENT
