A TRUCK driver stopped off on his way to work to check his Lotteries Super Jackpot draw, to discover he’d won $100,000 in the latest Lucky Lotteries Super Jackpot draw.
The happy man takes home the guaranteed first prize of $100,000 from draw 10184 on Tuesday.
Confirming the prize with a NSW Lotteries official, the man declared the win meant so much to him.
“Oh love, if you were here right now I’d kiss you,” he said.
“Thank you. Thank you very much. You don’t know what you’ve done for me. This means so much for me — I’ll be able to go on a holiday.”
The hardworking truckie said he generally bought a couple of tickets each week.
“Normally I win a free ticket but this one, oh it’s beautiful — it’s just fantastic,” he said.
“It just goes to show you never know your luck; but I always say you’ve got to be in it to win it.”
When asked what his holiday plan would include, the happy man didn’t hesitate.
“I’ll head up north where the weather is warmer and do some finishing! I’ll be able to have a good holiday — just sit back and relax,” he said.
“This is just like a dream come true!”
The regular player, who wishes to remain anonymous, bought his entry of 10 random numbers from Tobacco Station, Shop 6B Greenway Plaza, 1183 The Horsley Drive, Wetherill Park.
Tobacco Station owner David Car said he was thrilled to have sold a first prize winning Lucky Lotteries Super Jackpot entry to one of his regular customers.
“We were really excited for our winner, it meant a lot to him and it gave me such joy knowing he had won $100,000,” Mr Car shared.
“We wish him all the best and hope he kicks back and enjoys his well-deserved holiday.”
