A Wangi Wangi woman is in celebration mode after she scored $100,000 in a recent Lucky Lotteries Super Jackpot draw.

The Lake Macquarie pensioner, who won the guaranteed first prize on Monday 17 October, revealed she can finally fulfil her dreams of giving back to charities close to her heart.

In addition to her major bounty, the local’s entry also claimed two consolation windfalls of $1,000, boosting her total lottery loot to $102,000.

“Oh my god! That’s absolutely amazing,” she cried when officials from The Lott called to reveal her newfound fortune.

“This is perfect.

“Last week the NSW Rural Fire Service called me to donate but with Christmas coming up, I thought I would hold off.

“But, now, I can donate as much as I want.

“You wouldn’t believe it; I started playing Lucky Lotteries because my close friend won $100,000 on it a few years ago, too.

“I thought, ‘Wouldn’t that be nice if it happened to me?’

“This will make such a difference to not only me but all the people in my life.

“I can spread the happiness.

“I have a friend that plays as well and we always say to each other, if one of us wins, we will help each other.”

The Wangi Wangi resident said the money would come in handy, especially with the festive season approaching.

“Oh my, it will make a fantastic Christmas for my children and grandchildren,” she stated.

“I almost didn’t answer my phone because I had a few spam calls [today].

“But, how fantastic that I did.

“Thank you so much.

“I can’t wait to call my friends and family to tell them the good news.”

Her winning entry of 10 consecutive numbers was purchased online at thelott.com – the official home of Australia’s lotteries.
