A Townsville man has received a welcome boost to his efforts to end his employment and enter early retirement following his $100,000 win in today’s Lucky Lotteries Super Jackpot draw.

The North Queensland resident held the guaranteed 1st Prize in Lucky Lotteries Super Jackpot draw 10551, drawn Friday 8 April 2022.

This afternoon we broke the news to the winner, who couldn’t wait to call his wife and give her the good news.

“You’re kidding! Really? $100,000?! Woohoo!” he yelled.

“Can you hang on for one moment, I just want to call my wife right away and tell her.

“This is fantastic mate. Thank you so much for calling. We’re getting on a bit now and want to retire, so this will definitely give us a helping hand.

“I play Lucky Lotteries most weeks but never expect to win anything other than a free ticket, so this has blown my mind.

“We’ll share some of it with our children and grandchildren, but really this is just the best start to Easter I can think of.”

His winning entry of one random number was purchased online at thelott.com – the official home of Australia’s lotteries.
