Generous Orange mum to share her good fortune after $100,000 Lucky Lotteries win
A generous Orange mother only had her nearest and dearest on her mind when she discovered she’d won $100,000 in a recent Lucky Lotteries Super Jackpot draw.
The Central Tablelands resident won the guaranteed 1st Prize in Lucky Lotteries Super Jackpot draw 10746 on Tuesday 17 January 2023.
In addition to the 1st Prize, the winning woman scored a consolation prize of $2,000, bolstering her total windfall to $102,000.
“You are joking! You are joking! You are joking!” the winning woman cheered when we called to break the winning news.
“This is some of the best news I’ve received today!
“I feel a little bit overwhelmed. My husband even has a drink to calm his nerves!
“I’ve only ever won a little bit of money! This is life-changing for us.
“I was a little bit sceptical when I got your call with everything going on these days.
“I purchase a couple of tickets weekly because you never know what might happen!
“I don’t know how I want to celebrate. I might wait until the kids come back so I can tell them in person.
“There are some things we’d love to help our kids pay off, so we’ll do that first.
“I always said if I had some good fortune, I’d help my family, and now I can.
“Thank you so much.”
North Orange News owner Peter Minogue said he was over-the-moon to have sold his fourth major prize winning entry.
“We’d like to wish our winner a warm congratulations and all the best for the future,” he said.
