Newcastle workers come together to celebrate $200,000 lottery loot


The Hunter’s rich vein of financial success continues, with a third big pay day in the space of a week.

A merry band of 20 Newcastle workmates have been blown away with the news they scored a captivating $200,000 win in Monday’s Lucky Lotteries Mega Jackpot draw.

It comes after a fellow Novocastrian bagged an incredible $1.8 million the previous weekend, while a local woman discovered she’d bagged a life-changing $231,000 on Wednesday night (15 March).

The employees picked up the guaranteed first prize of $200,000 in draw 1606 on 20 March.

Immediately afterwards, an official from The Lott contacted the syndicate leader, who cheered among the office crowd.

“You’re killing me. I’m completely blown away,” he laughed.

“My manager is standing right next to me – she’s dancing, cheering.

“This entry is shared among 20 of us at work.

“There’s a group of us who come together every draw.

“There’s no doubt the syndicate members will know soon because of all the celebrations in the office.

“It’s funny, we have a staff outing scheduled for the day we receive the prize in our bank account.

“What perfect timing.

“We will probably go out for drinks to celebrate tonight.”

Their winning entry consisting of two random numbers was purchased online at – the official home of Australia’s lotteries.

The Lucky Lotteries Mega Jackpot prize is now $3.40 million for draw 1607, while the Lucky Lotteries Super Jackpot is $500,000 for draw 10764.  

In 2022, 274 Lucky Lotteries first prize and jackpot winning entries across Australia won more than $80.49 million.
