A Valentine woman planned to head to her husband’s work today to break the news they’re now $100,000 richer thanks to Lucky Lotteries.
The Newcastle player won the first prize in Lucky Lotteries Super Jackpot draw 10454, drawn on Thursday 15 April.
Although the ticket was registered to a Players Club card, the winner’s contact details were out of date.
Speaking with an official from The Lott this morning (22 April), the Novocastrian said she was filled with joy after making her exciting discovery.
“I don’t know how to describe how I am feeling right now,” the winning woman giggled.
“I just can’t believe it.
“I only found out about half an hour ago.
“I was going to the newsagency to buy some scratchies – and I remembered I had a ticket to check.
“The gentleman at the counter told me I had won something, but he couldn’t see what it was.
“So, once I got back to my car, I checked on The Lott app.
“I didn’t believe it; I still can’t believe it now.
“It’s crazy – oh my god!
“I’m going to go to my husband’s work and break the news to him and tell him we need to celebrate immediately.”
When asked how she planned to enjoy her windfall, the woman said her mind was running wild with ideas.
“Well, I would love to do some travelling throughout Australia,” she admitted.
“I’ve been wanting to go to Cairns, so I think we will do that first.
“I also want to get myself a new car and I am in desperate need of some new clothes and shoes, so a shopping spree is certainly on the cards.”
The winning entry was purchased at Valentine Newsagency, 10 Allambee Place, Valentine.
The team is thrilled the winner has now claimed the prize and wish her all the very best.
