A Moss Vale man has won $200,000 in a Lucky Lotteries Mega Jackpot draw.
The winning entry was unregistered which meant officials from The Lott had no way of contacting the ticketholder.
He eventually came forward.
“Oh, it’s so great!” he laughed.
“I had already suspected that I might’ve been the winner.
“My wife told me that a 1st Prize in a Lucky Lotteries Mega Jackpot draw hadn’t been claimed at the Moss Vale Newsagency, and I knew I had a ticket in the draw!
“I usually check my tickets on a Monday, but I was unable to get down to the newsagency. I received a surprise this morning when I scanned them at the self-scanner.
“The self-scanner told me to go to the counter and see a team member. I gave the ticket to the outlet owner, and he told me that it had won $200,000 and a free ticket!
“Apparently I’m on a winning streak because I didn’t expect another free ticket!
“I always purchase tickets into Lucky Lotteries. It’s my favourite game.”
