An East Melbourne man is one step closer to fulfilling his dream of owning his own home after scoring $200,000 in the recent Lucky Lotteries Mega Jackpot draw.
The victorious Victorian won the guaranteed 1st Prize of $200,000 in Lucky Lotteries Mega Jackpot draw 1552, drawn Friday 3 December 2021.
“Wow! I can’t believe it. Is this real?” he happily questioned.
“I logged into my online account and clicked on the ticket, that’s when I saw $200,000! I’m still trying to put things together. I’m speechless.
“It’s been such a hard year for my wife and I. We’ve been back and forth with trying to purchase a house with the hiking interest rates and the recent developments in the property market.
“It’s been a painful headache, but now we’re one step closer to owning our very own home. This is the best Christmas gift anyone could ask for.
“My wife arrives home from a business trip this week, and I can’t wait to surprise her with the news.
“It’s incredible. Unbelievable!”
The man’s winning ticket was a free ticket he received while playing lotteries online at thelott.com – the official home of Australia’s lotteries.
