Three Lucky Lotteries Winners Win $100,000
2 min read
Lucky Lotteries certainly lived up to its name for three lotto players who are $100,000 richer after each winning the top prize in recent Super Jackpot draws! Strangely enough, two of the three winners both bought their winning ticket in the town of Orange in New South Wales. The third winner was from Rosebud in Victoria’s Mornington Peninsula.
The first Orange winner said he had been “enjoying a lucky streak” in the lead up to his win, having won “a few nice prizes here and a raffle there”. That lucky feeling was what led him to purchase his Lucky Lotteries Super Jackpot ticket from a local newsagency, but it took a couple of days for him to check his ticket. When newsagency staff told him he’d won “something decent”, he was excited, but “couldn’t believe it” when lottery officials confirmed his $100,000 prize.
“I’m not a superstitious person but it was incredible that I’d won again,” he said. The lucky winner has chosen to remain anonymous and said he plans to invest his winnings.
The second Orange winner was a man in his forties who purchased his winning ticket from a local newsagency while on a frequent trip to the city. He explained how he hadn’t had a chance to check the ticket until the following week when he returned to the newsagency and saw a sign celebrating that they had sold a $100,000 Lucky Lotteries Super Jackpot ticket. Lottery officials confirmed that he was the missing winner!
“It never crossed my mind that it could be my ticket so I was stunned when I found out I’d won $100,000!” he said. “It’s just so exciting.”
The lucky winner, who wishes to remain anonymous, said the win was a “real bright spot” in the year and would go a long way towards paying off his mortgage and some other expenses.
The third Lucky Lotteries Super Jackpot winner, a grandmother from Rosebud, said she had bought her winning ticket on a whim while buying her usual weekly lotto tickets. “I thought ‘blow it’, I’ll get two Lucky Lotteries tickets,” she laughed.
The following week she returned to the local newsagency to check her tickets and joked to newsagency staff to see if the black cat had paid her – a reference to the Lucky Lotteries mascot. They informed her that they had sold a $100,000 winning ticket and checked her unique number – it matched the winning number!
The lucky winner said the news “felt like a dream” and that she had never won anything of that size before. She generously planned to share the prize money with her family and save the rest, saying it would “feel nice to have a healthy bank balance”.
“I do know that I’ll keep buying Lucky Lotteries tickets!” she added.
The first prize winning ticket number in Lucky Lotteries Super Jackpot draw 10046 was 108649. The first prize winning ticket number in Lucky Lotteries Super Jackpot draw 10051 was 114279. The first prize winning ticket number in Lucky Lotteries Super Jackpot draw 10052 was 57015.
