A Redcliffe man plans to pay off some bills and set himself up for the future after winning first prize in the Lucky Lotteries Super Jackpot draw last week.
The ecstatic man confessed he had to check his results multiple times before he finally accepted he had won the $100,000 prize.
His winning entry was drawn on Friday, October 2022.
“I can’t believe this has happened to me!” he exclaimed when confirming his win with an official from The Lott.
“I checked my entry and saw that I’d won, but then went and checked the results of the draw because I needed further confirmation.
“I’m still struggling to process it.
“It means I’ll be able to pay off some bills and it’s going to set me up for the future, which is fantastic.
“I’ve played Lucky Lotteries for a while now.
“I just think, ‘oh, you never know.’
“I’m just so thankful.”
His winning entry of two random numbers was purchased online at thelott.com.
How the game works
Lucky Lotteries Super Jackpot and Lucky Lotteries Mega Jackpot are raffle-style games, which means there is a set number of tickets in each draw. As each ticket number is unique there is no sharing of prizes.
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.
