Generous grandfather to share $200,000 Lucky Lotteries windfall with family and charity
A generous Bayview man plans to share most of his $200,000 Lucky Lotteries windfall with his family and various charities close to his heart, only keeping a ‘few dollars’ for himself.
The Sydney player won the 1st Prize of $200,000 in Lucky Lotteries Mega Jackpot draw 1573, drawn Wednesday 25 May 2022.
Speaking with our team today, the winning man confessed he was still struggling to fathom the fact he’d won.
“I’m feeling quite shocked if I’m honest with you,” he said.
“I thought I was seeing things or that it was a joke when I checked the results and realised I’d won $200,000.
“I’ll keep a little bit for myself but I’ll share the majority of the winnings with my family who have mortgages.
“This money will do wonderful things for my family.
“I’ll have to donate a little bit to a few charities too. It’s the right thing to do, isn’t it?
“It’s an incredible day to be me and I just can’t believe it.”
