A Maroubra man is off to plan his holiday in Queensland after getting an unexpected $100,000 cash boost. He was excited about the unexpected windfall but he didn’t expect to hit the jackpot!

The Eastern Sydney local received a notification about his win on his cellphone but he ignored the call from the officials of The Lott because he thought they were calling to sell him a new energy package.

So, he walked to the office to verify the notification and was floored to learn he was going to get the $100,000 prize from the Super Jackpot draw.

“I thought, ‘oh, that’s cool – a little win on that one,” he told himself after getting the notification. 

“Then I realised it said $100,000! all I could think was, ‘that’s not right, I don’t know about this!'”

This was his second purchase of the Super Jackpot ticket from the official site.

“I usually only purchase tickets when there’s a big jackpot! I plan to help someone who deserves it and celebrate with a holiday in Queensland.”

Per The Lott: “The Lucky Lotteries Mega Jackpot prize is now $11.57 million for draw 1579, while the Lucky Lotteries Super Jackpot prize is now $17.18 million for draw 10603.

In 2021, 127 1st Prize and Jackpot winning entries across Australia won more than $32.95 million. During this time, the biggest prize was won by a Coolangatta man who a Mega Jackpot prize of $9.41 million in May.

Last financial year, Australia’s official lotteries contributed more than $1.5 billion via state lottery taxes and donations to help community initiatives, such as hospitals, health research, disaster relief and education.”
